The complaints took effect and it seems that this is not something common when it comes to Apple. It is obvious that the company will not go back and redesign the MacBook Pro, replacing the connectors you removed in favor of the four Thunderbolt 3 ports, which generated critical waves.
But what could she do now, to help users in this transition? For many, it could have put several adapters in the notebook box. But we know Apple and we know that it is not very much like it. Today, however, the company announced a nice cut in the prices of the main adapters that use the USB-C connector.
See Ma's official statement on the matter:
We are extremely excited about the new MacBook Pro, which is the best professional notebook we've ever made. It has the CPU, graphics, memory, storage and faster I / O, a better display, the innovative Touch Bar and more. The MacBook Pro uses the industry's most advanced connector, the USB-C with Thunderbolt 3, to provide maximum performance, expandability and compatibility.
We recognize that many users, especially professionals, depend on older connectors to get their jobs done today and face a transition. We want to help you with this switch to the latest technologies and peripherals, as well as to accelerate the growth of this new ecosystem. By the end of the year, we are reducing the prices of all USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 peripherals we sell, as well as the prices of Apple USB-C adapters and cables.
Here are the accessories that had their prices reduced:
The fall, of course, is not exclusive to Brazil, it has occurred in all countries.
Of course Apple wouldn’t give all of these adapters in the product box, but it could at least have put one USB-C to USB adapter, for example, so that iGadgets could connect / recharge their devices on the new MBP without having to pay for it (comparatively, it would be the same thing she did when placing the Lightning Adapter for 3.5mm headphone jack (R $ 79) in the box of iPhones 7 / 7 Plus.
Regardless of the choice, price reduction is always good. Now hope that the prices remain at this level even after the end of the year.
