That Macs need urgent upgrades, no one doubts that. With the exception of the MacBook (12-inch), which was recently updated, all the others have been without news for some time – put in this cake Mac mini, iMac, Mac Pro, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
We have already seen a supposed case of the new MacBook Pro – indicating that the machine could be launched very soon – with no less than four USB-C ports. Now, as the 9to5Mac, macOS Sierra codes rely on strings which indicate that the new version of the Apple desktop operating system will support connectivity USB 3.1 generation 2, also known by the name SuperSpeed + USB.
Such technology allows data transfer at speeds of up to 10Gbps, double the first generation of USB 3.1 – the one that is present in most Macs sold today and that is supported by OS X El Capitan.
But, better than that will be to see these new USB-C ports of future Macs supporting the third generation of Thunderbolt. In it, we have an impregnated technology combo capable of supporting not only the Thunderbolt 3 and its incredible maximum data transfer speed of 40Gbps, but also the second generation of USB 3.1 and DisplayPort 1.2. All of this on a single USB-C port, capable of also providing enough power and handling external 4K or 5K monitors.
Let the new Macs come! ?
