Over the past couple years, more and more manufacturers have migrated over of microUSB to USB-C for charging and data transfer. The adoption of USB-C has been surprisingly quick; nearly all major smartphone manufacturers have implemented it into their latest flagships, with the exception of Apple.
A few years ago, only the most high-end computers and only a handful of smartphones utilized USB Type-C. But in the year of 2017, virtually every laptop and flagship smartphone emerging from the market comes equipped with these high-speed ports for quick charging and data transfer. To be able to come home and use a single cable for charging your phone and your laptop is such as satisfying feeling.
