Re: iPad pro or Macbook pro ?

Whether there is or not, it's not shipped with either the phone or the laptop so has to be bought separately.

Yeah, that's a bit of a bummer.
But then, they'd either have to ship two cable/power-plugs (the power-plug would need an USB-C socket) or some sort of adapter.
Or a lot more SKUs.

At the scale of the iPhone, that's actually quite a lot of e-waste.
The amount of people who buy an iPhone 7 and a notebook with USB-C is actually rather small (compared to the absolute number of iPhone buyers).

The upshot is that they maintained legacy USB compatibility with the iPhone 7 - what all the people are whining about when they didn't do in the MacBookPros....


They'll sort it out with the next iPhone, I'm sure ;-)
