My new phone has a C-C USB cable.


If I want to connect it to my PC, I have to either use an adapter on a USB 3.0 cable, or a USB C- USB A 3.0 cable.


Even though USB 3.1 is backward compatible, will using an adapter or a USB C to USB A 3.0 cable reduce the speed and/or advantages?




Since this is supposed to be the future for USB. I would like to understand this better.


I'm guessing new PC's will eventually have Type C ports.


Those of us without one will have to either continue using the standard USB ports or add USB C ports to the system?


Will anything be compromised by not acquiring a Type C USB port?


Thank you!

Whether you think you can or can't, either way you are right.
