The Type-C connector is different from the standard rectangular USB connector. It is smaller than Type-C and has a slim, round shape.
If you purchase the correct adapter, you can connect a regular flash drive or another device through this connector. The high data transfer rate is suitable for Type-C connectors and other USB version 3.1 devices.
At the same time, the Type-C connector has a wide range of applications. For example, laptops, smartphones, desktop motherboards, cars, and other devices use Type-C connectors.
So, what are the primary uses of these connectors? Let's learn more about it!
Type-C is one of the USBs; it is just newer. Its main advantages include high data transfer rates, the ability to transmit video signals, and an asymmetrical design that allows you to insert the plug in any direction.
The bottom line is that when you plug in your flash drive or charger in the wrong direction multiple times, Apple smartphone owners will solve the problem using a bi-directional Lightning connector. Some of these connectors are universal and contain regular USB ports and card readers, and connectors for connecting network cables.
Also, it is essential to understand the type of Type-C connector itself, which is not like a USB connector like 2.0 or 3.1. In general, high data transfer rates are not only applicable to Type-C but also another USB version 3.1 devices.
Type-C is based on the USB 3.1 standard and allows you to transfer data at speeds of up to 10Gb/s. However, this can only be achieved using a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface. Such devices can be labeled as SuperSpeed+, USB 3.1 Rev 2, or USB 3.1 Gen 2. Please note the transfer speed declared in the device specification if it's not marked.
In addition to high-speed transfer, Type-C connectors have so-called alternative modes of operation that allow you to transfer HD images. For example, you can output if you have the appropriate adapter or off-the-shelf cable. However, not all devices support these features. If you do need this feature, please note the specifications.
So, with this Type-C connector, you can transfer data, display images, charge, and even connect your device to the Internet. The versatility of the connector plays a vital role in the suitable device.
Although not all devices support Type-C, the base of compatible devices will gradually grow, and this connector will dominate over time.
