What is the difference between USB-C and Thunderbolt?

While USB-C is used universally, Thunderbolt is a development by Apple and Intel. USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 still use the same connector, which is why the two technologies are compatible with each other. If you have a USB-C cable, you can also connect devices with a Thunderbolt interface.

What is the difference between USB-A and USB-C?

The differences between the various USB ports are primarily in the connector type. USB A refers to the classic wide connector that is often used in computers. Despite the externally symmetrical design, it can only be inserted in one direction. The latest generation - USB-C - eliminates this weak point with its small, rounded connector. USB-C supports a variety of protocols and is considered to be particularly future-proof.

Is USB-C backward compatible?

The USB standard for data transmission is both upwards and downwards compatible. The only requirement: the connector type must match. Since USB-C has a different design compared to its predecessors, compatibility is not always given. If you want to use USB-C on older devices, simply use an appropriate adapter.
