It seems that Apple has been deliberating quite a lot before introducing the USB-C Hub for its MacBook Pro. Apple had, in fact, put a lot of thought into this paradigm shift for their MacBooks. What’s rare is that they have chosen to separate themselves from the proprietary technology standards, which is unusual but not unheard of in Apple’s history.
However, stepping away from Lightning technology and MagSafe is certainly a wonderful thing for the users as more and more developers would be able to come up with technologies that would be compatible with various Apple products without the need to use exclusively Apple-specific gear.
The USB-C hub for MacBook Pro actually enhances the MacBook’s overall design. Apple is one tech company that has given major importance to design. Apple has not only focused on creating products with top technical specifications but it has also fascinated customers by coming up with aesthetically pleasing products. The implementation of the USB-C hub in MacBook is actually a continuation of Apple’s tradition of placing top priority to its minimalist design attitude, ahead of all other considerations.
