Paul JJ (9 days ago)
All good here, HOWEVER, you didn't explain the main thing to the people. USB C is NOT USB 3.1 -)) Oooh yeah. It CAN BE USB 3.1 but it well can be ONLY USB2 with a connector type USB C -) Another words check out Sony XZ - it has USB C, but it's just USB 2, very very slow connection, unfortunately.

Javier Cabrera ikr. Cameras still have SD cards, most monitors are still HDMI, speakers are not usb type C, wireless mice and keyboards are usb type A etc. 3 years later and it's not that versatile.

Way of life Submission (3 months ago)
the USB-C was actually approved by USB-IF back in 2014, they agreed with tech manufacturers to get rid of all other ports and bring USB-C to all devices, this act was suppose to start from that time and by 2017 it should be officially on every device, they come up with this idea to make things easy for users to have only one cable and use it for all devices they have. this is not something innovated by apple.

And yet, the future for the iPhone was not USB-C. Why in the hell would they not put USB-C in the iPhone X? That alone makes me not want to buy it.

On the topic of USB-C reversibility: I have a four port USB-C hub that will only be recognized by my DELL XPS 9365 if it's plugged in one way. Turned over and reinserted, it won't be recognized and it won't transmit power or data. Go figure this one out!

USB Type-C is screwed. What year is it? 2017, almost 2018, and there are still no Type-C hard drives, Type-C keyboards, Type-C mice, Type-C microphones, Type-C drawing tablets, Type-C speakers, Type-C iPhone, Type-C consumer PC, Type-C consumer laptop, Type-C flash drive, Type-C printer, Type-C scanner, Type-C game controllers, Type-C smartphones (Type-C to Type-A cables don't count, what even is the point?), and etc etc...

USB-C speeds varies depending on the Mac model you choose: Some computers, which have USB-C ports, support ONLY USB 3.0 at 5 Gbps. Some computers, which have USB-C ports, support BOTH USB 3.0 at 5 Gbps and USB 3.1 at 10 Gbps. Some computers, which have USB-C ports, support ALL USB 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2 (Thunderbolt 3.0 at 40 Gbps) When you buy a new computer, you make sure to look for the right USB-C ports speed you want for your needs. USB-C is backward compatible to old USB 2.0 & 1.0.

Zack West (5 months ago)
Of coarse the real reason why Apple only gives you one USB-C port is so that way you have to buy apples dongles to use the damn thing. Not to be innovative. They just looking to increase profits with accessories.
