New Macs with faster USB ports are coming – at least that's what macOS Sierra codes indicate

That Macs need urgent upgrades, no doubt. With the exception of the recently updated 12-inch MacBook, everyone else has been unheard of for some time now.

We have already seen a supposed housing of the new MacBook Pro indicating that the machine could be launched very soon with no fewer than four USB-C ports. Now, as shown by the 9to5Mac, macOS Sierra codes have strings which indicate that the new version of Ma's desktop operating system supports connectivity USB 3.1 generation 2, also known by the name SuperSpeed ​​+ USB.

Such technology allows data transfer at speeds up to 10Gbps, double the first generation of USB 3.1 that is present on most Macs sold today and is supported by OS X El Capitan.

But it's better to see these new USB-C ports of future Macs supporting Thunderbolt's third generation. Here we have a technology-rich combo capable of supporting not only Thunderbolt 3 and its amazing maximum data transfer speed of 40Gbps, but also the second generation of USB 3.1 and DisplayPort 1.2. This is all in a single USB-C port that can also provide plenty of power and handle 4K or 5K external displays.

May the new Macs come! 😎
