To start off, the USB Type-A and Type-B are non-reversible, meaning you’ll exert time ensuring a correct plug-in. And sadly, they cannot be used across multiple platforms. But that’s where the USB Type-C comes in! Type-C devices are reversible and easy to plug in. With the future-proof Type C standard marching toward ubiquity. USB Type-C is a hardware change, rather than an interface standard change (like USB 2.0 to USB 3.0). This symmetrical oval plug will replace Type A and B, respectively the rectangular plug found on such things as thumb drives, and that
found to connect to power-drawing devices, like cell phones. With connectors simplified to a single type, USB Type-C allows consumers to freely use it across multiple platforms! That means you only need one
cable for both PC and handheld devices. Easy-peasy!
