And of course there is a time where it's really convenient to plug in a cable, that when you want wanna charge quickly, so we do have a port on here for power, and the team decided if we're gonna have a port on it, let's make the most versatile connector we've ever put in a notebook, and sure enough they did.
One connector supports USB data, display port, power, HDMI, VGA.
All through one connector.
The technology behind this is a brand new standard called USB-C, and Apple along with a number of other companies have all worked together to create this new industry standard.
And you've going to see it appear in more products.
The first you see here on the new Macbook.
Here's the cable for USB-C.
It's a third the size of a standard USB cable.
It's easier to use because it's reversible, no more trying to dive underneath and figure out which way it goes, and it's the most versatile connector.
You'll see adapters from Apple, as well as many third parties, that support all these different interfaces all through one connector.
