I bolded that what I meant. Who cares about the official limits? :S
you should. because apple products tend to either kill themselves or the user when they go wrong
I don't even need to provide links, it's in the news here every other month about someone getting electrocuted or a house burning down and it's always apple products
And unlike the USA, apple is a minority here so it's not because theres more of them
I haven't broken a USB connector in 20 years. What you're talking about is not really a problem, it's just a made up argument in favor of Apple's otherwise indefensible stance.
I've only seen maybe 2-3 damaged phone USB ports over the years and maybe 10 on PC's - all from users who would break *anything* they had.
I'm still using the charging cables that came with my Pixel 1, i'm yet to have a single USB C cable break on me and only one port - the port on my Fractal Define R6 which had something fall inside it and catch fire
Lightning is 480Mb and 10W
USB-C can scale from that to 80Gb and 240W, letting it be used on cheap stuff or expensive products. It's a no brainer.
One single 65W charger in my house charges:
2x samsung tablets
2x older samsung tablets using a micro-B to C converter
3x nintendo switch
1x quest 2
1x Xbox elite S2 controller
3x nintendo switch controllers (all different types)
2x Chromecast w/ remote
I still need a 5V 1A genuine apple charger and cord here, because we have friends with iphones that are always flat, and refuse to work off generic equipment.
All of these type-C devices are intercompatible with accesories - all the host devices can work with the same chargers (Not always with quick charging, but they all charge off a basic 5V 1A at minimum)
They all work with USB-C headphones
Chromecast, phones, tablets, switches - all work with the same USB-C hub that adds USB ports for mice/keyboards/card readers/USB speakers. They all "just work" together.
Even apple knows it's useless, or they'd not be using type C for their laptops.
They just like having you spend money for hardware that goes in the bin if you leave them - you need to buy EVERYTHING from them so they profit, and none of it may work for another brand if you do.
Nothing like an apple user wanting to back up their 100GB of photos and videos and finding out they're stuck paying for cloud storage since you cant copy/paste over USB, and they're limited to 30MB/s if they use ghetto solutions to try and make it work
