Re: How generous
I do not want to defend Apple, far from it, but, why do people need to plug their phone into their computer anyway?
Having a phone with SD myself, obviously, I could avoid it easily.
But, my previous phones never had SD and I rarely (basically, once) plugged in the phone to the PC, for music transfer at the getgo.
That was only to avoid download from the cloudy storage area though, not a necessity.
And, although I don't use one, I know there are apps for WiFi transfer too.
I can see almost the only 'need' as recovery in the event of near-death, which I have done on one of my phones previously.
