USB Connectors go all the way back to 1996. Kicking off with USB type A, micro USB port and USB 2.0 in 2000 and USB type C in 2014. While the specification of the type C were published in 2014, it’s really just in the last year that the technology has caught on and it is very quickly emerging for charging and transferring data.

It is also reversible, so you’ll no longer have to flip the connector around looking for the correct orientation.. I will pause for applause..

USB Type-C was designed to offer the same speeds as USB 3.1/Gen2, hitting up to 10 Gbit/s data transfers. It is also used by the Thunderbolt 3 standard. We are looking at a probable shift to have gadgets/electronic equipment (phones, computers, cameras, printers.. etc) shift to the USB type C.

More of USB type C. on this video from Android Authority, a fan btw.
