Being hailed as the new “super USB cable”, USB-C is a new type of USB cable. USB-C allows for faster transfer speeds, a reversible connector, and several other applications such as connecting displays and headphones. It is believed to be replacing existing USB ports on phones, allowing for slimmer devices with more connectivity.
- Now Intel have hailed it as the ideal — and superior — alternative to the headphone jack.
- It can power laptops, transfer data and solve world hunger (okay, maybe not that last one).
- Features like automatically turning the microphone off when it’s not in use, and connecting a phone to a display for transferring apps or movies.
