USB-C is the latest USB connector standard that is small and reversible. Formerly called USB Type-C, it is the latest USB standard that supports USB 3.2 Gen 2 10Gbps or SuperSpeed+. The connector is designed to connect to both the hosts and devices. Either side of the cable can connect to either host or devices. The connector is designed to be symmetrical and can be plugged in up or down. This makes the cable easy to connect and convenient to use. It is also compatible with Thunderbolt 3 and can be plugged into Thunderbolt 3 hosts. Many of our external drives now come with USB-C connectors.
