    1. USB4 is supposed to eliminate that confusion. I agree that it’s confusing, though… this is why I actually still like lightning, despite the pundits saying it’s horrible.

    1. If you had bothered to read the USB specification, it is very logical.

      Generations of functional updates are numbered, with major and minor updates denoted with whole numbers or decimals, respectively. EXACTLY LIKE APPLE SOFTWARE.

      Full size connectors are lettered A, B, C. Then the mobile phone industry asked for smaller connections and the Mini and Micro USB connections were defined. Too difficult for you?

      Let’s compare USB naming conventions to the iPhone. First Jobs rolled out the plain iPhone. Then suddenly there was a big push to sell the 3 and the 3GS, which coincided with AT&T’s rollout of 3rd generation GSM network. Then Apple decided it would support Verizon’s antiquated but large CDMA network so the antennagate 4 was released with cute rubber bands. Then imitating the Intel tick-tock release cycle, Apple started doing S models. Then Apple lost the plot. It skipped the iPhone 9 and decided roman numerals were cool again. The Notch generations have brought forth the X, XR, whatever that is supposed to mean. But then the genius Apple marketing schmucks went back to 11 and 12 numerical denominations. Apple uses up old hardware with their Special Edition closeout models too. Then we have mini and max and pro models, whatever that is supposed to mean. iOS is a pathetic excuse for a professional operating system, but there you go. Marketing hype over clear consistent precise product naming.

      Apple is the mess, not USB.

  1. And, Apple now charges for the mess (iPh)…supposedly because customers have too many hiding in drawers. Some people have a hunch it’s because of the bottom-line.

    1. Yes!

      OWC states:
      “The OWC Thunderbolt 4/USB-C Cable is a plug and play safe solution for connecting any Mac, PC, iPad, Chromebook, or Surface tablet with a Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, or USB4 port to any device, display, or power supply with Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4, USB-C, or USB4 port. With lab test certified 100% universal compatibility and performance for any Type-C connection, you’ll always have the right cable that simply works.”

  2. Whoever designed the USB-C port on the Magic Keyboard should be fired. You can’t remove the cable without lifting the MK or risking breaking the port, impossible to get enough leverage with your fingers on the narrow, slippery sides. It should be vertical, not horizontal, same probably goes for laptops, where’s the Magsafe version of USB-C Apple? Inelegant, clunky crap.
