The New USB-C Standard

There is a new standard that is coming to the world of ports and connecting cables. If you have an iPhone that you use, but you also have an Android tablet, you may have noticed how they have their own connector ports. They are not the same, and it means that the charger you use on your iPhone is not going to work with your Android tablet. This is also true if you have an Android phone and an iPad. It can get frustrating, but we think that USB-C can put an end to all of this frustration.

As you can see when USB-C is talked about, there is a new standard that is coming to the connectivity world. What we are getting is a port that is not only fantastic in terms of how little space it takes, but we are also getting something that is hard to beat in any way. You can get more information here, or you can read on to learn more about USB-C. The gist of the matter is that USB-C is not only going to achieve the rapid transfer speeds that you want, but it will also help with rapid charging. For portable devices, this is a game changer.

Another perk of USB-C that is sometimes ignored is the backwards compatibility. With most other ports, you need a connection of that specific type. But with USB-C, you are free to use USB 2.0, 3.0 or 3.1 cables and feel no issues at all. Yes, you are not going to get the full performance of USB-C when you are using those connections, but they will get the job done for you nonetheless. So, we think that there is a massive reason for all developers and hardware producers to get behind USB-C. It is only a matter of time before it is the industry standard.
