As technology evolves, it's only natural for features to come and go. One such feature that was popular a few years back that has since been phased out on smartphones is an IR blaster.
IR (infrared) blasters could be configured with your television, sound system, thermostat, and more to essentially turn your smartphone into a universal remote. It was a genuinely useful piece of tech, but as replacements for infrared solutions popped up, these blasters were steadily removed from just about every phone out there.
Our AC forum members recently shared their thoughts on this topic, and this is what they had to say.
What say you? Do you want IR blasters to return to smartphones?
