The dream they have since ever so that they can make money out of nothing a port can be by patenting it? Nope my friend. Usb type C is the product of Usb port inventors them selves. And that is why it is cheap. Stay calm, apple will never manage to standardise something... And you should be glad about that. Otherwise a 5 cm usb cable would have cost you 5000 euros.

Dont you think why, what behind this, why now they go for iUSB-C? iThink that is business act and will gain profit, that we (Apple lover) call iInnovation. iBelieve it will sell and top sell.
iPhone dont have fast charge? Who care! Even iPhone 8 dont have fast charge it will sell and do not need to worry, its Apple. iFan will never mind to seat 3 hours to charge their iPhone battery while android fanboy just need 70-90 minutes (Probably we will found below 50 minutes this year). Poor android fan, need 70-90 minutes.
Remember: as long as that fruit logo still behind the phone back, dont need to worry, still the best!

So if you want to use power and connect your camera or your phone to it, you have to use a port multiplier (aka adapter).
And yes, all other manufacturers that followed suit are just as much at fault. Yes Asus, i'm looking at you with your 12.5" Zenbook 3.
Everyone else who, has at the very least 2 ports is actually doing it right.
ED, 05 Mar 2017why cant all charing ports be all USB c????? across all manufacturers, why do they all to have... moreNew usb format adoption rate is still slow. There is actually a little behind story why we have so many different usb type today. Actually, it all started when Apple introduced Lightning port solely to remove their gigantic 30 pins port. During time of designing new port they had made both lightning and usb c. They adopt only the lightning port format for all their devices in since 2012. It took the world by storm for being better looking and slimmer and also reversible compare to microusb 2.0.
But then their other design of the port aka usb c got out and being manufactured and used for the first time in 2014, just two years after lightning exist. People fall in love with usb c and we start to use it extensively since 2015. So, Apple most probably in dilemma to change their port again and android also need to get rid of the microusb 2.0 format for all devices.
Here comes the best part. All of this happened only within 5 years of time span. So, we cant really expect all devices to immediately changed to usb c right away and standardizing everything.
ED, 05 Mar 2017why cant all charing ports be all USB c????? across all manufacturers, why do they all to have... moreBecause money.... Apple can sell you your own imaginary friend, so i do not understand why is hard to comprehend this. Everything is about money:).

MG they are so crazy making still hybrid crap .. on purpose.. !
why cant all charing ports be all USB c????? across all manufacturers, why do they all to have different type of connectors.?? To make you buy and adapter for 10 dollars where the manufacturing cost is only 2 cents? is that why?
why do these companies have them to boast using eco friendly amterials, and other green credentials when if fact the greenest thing they can al do is agree on s standardisation and manufacture on a similar port. SO consumers have the option to opt for "no charger included" products and have 10 dollars discount on the purchase...... Oh this will not work because they want more money ... efff the green credentials , we just publish this for compliance, not because we really care about environment....
One solution for me. I stop buying electronics where i can..... so i just have a standard phone and keep it until the cows come home. and the same with other electronic devices.
meow, 05 Mar 2017why is it when another company like asus, Samsung, google, use type C usb on their new phones,... morebecause for apple to change anything on their smartphone its big, been looking for them to add something new to them for years! what banter
meow, 05 Mar 2017why is it when another company like asus, Samsung, google, use type C usb on their new phones,... moreBecause Apple wants to use it on the opposite side, the side which goes into the charger not the side which goes into the phone, it'll still be lighting port. Opposite doesn't always attract.
consumersmartphone, 04 Mar 2017What an innovation! iUSB-C.why is it when another company like asus, Samsung, google, use type C usb on their new phones, everything is great and everyone love it, did not even bother that they will need a new charger/ usb chords, but when apple/iPhone rumors to use type C usb on their new phone everyone lost their shit

At maximum you own an apple iPhone. Does it mean you need to lie for them? Apple never had fast charging and it couldn't bring it till now. Fast charging came to phones since Samsung galaxy S6 and after it nearly every brand except Apple brought fast charging to their phones. IPhone still takes 3 hours to charge and if you want to say no it'll charge in 2:30 hours by using iPad charger then neither all iPhone users buy iPad nor they will buy an iPad charger. If it supports that charger they can give ipad charger with the phone but obviously it harms your battery and fast charging doesn't mean using a higher voltage charger to charge your phone in 2:30 hours, it's a technology which provides true fast charging with same capacity charger and charger your phone in 1 hours or so but not more than 1:30. When we have phones with even fast wireless charging now Apple couldn't bring normal fast charging, well yeah it decreases profit per unit.
THIS IS SO AWESOME!
This way you can charge using MACBOOK having USB-C and YET APPLE CAN MAKE MONEY FROM LIGHTNING PORT by not adopting type c, a universal standard.
WOW, When you are determinant to make lots money, ideas can emerge.
A lesson from Apple :)

new computers and devices are starting to carry usb-c anyways.
I hate to say it but it will take apple making they wall plug a usb-c for everyone else to follow. Don't expect usb-c to usb-c interfaces to be more mainstream in new tech until 2018 even though google has been doing it for a couple years now.

This cable is VERY dangerous.. As you can see in the picture the lightning plug can fit into the usb-C nicely making a LOOP..Thus it will cause SHORT CIRCUIT causing high amount of current to flow.. The cable will then become very hot until it GLOWS.. Then finally it will EXPLODE!! Very dangerous please don't ever attempt this

Fortunately my phone does wireless charging, so Im all wireless and love it - have a wireless charger at home, one at work and a portable wireless power bank. Cant imagine going back to having to actually "charge" my phone with a cable instead of just putting in on the table to charge.
