The world of mobile computing is rapidly changing, and it’s only a matter of time before our devices are no longer tethered to our desks and laptops.
USB 3.0 ports are rapidly becoming the norm, and we’re seeing more and more devices like the Apple Watch and Google Glass use the technology to connect to the Internet.
With that in mind, we’ve decided to take a look at a few ways you can plug your iPhone into your laptop’s USB port.
While these may be your only options for plugging in a laptop at home, if you’re looking for a more flexible way to plug in your phone, we have you covered.
Here are a few things you need to know before you dive in.USB 3.1 standard and standards don’t always apply to everything.
For example, we’re not going to cover USB Type-C, which is the USB 3 that comes with the iPhone and iPad, or the Type-A, which the Apple Pencil uses to power its touchscreen.
We’re also not going the full USB 2.0 route here, which requires adapters for all devices that are compatible with the standard.
However, it’s important to note that some USB ports will support USB Type C, so if you want to use a USB Type A port, you should be able to do so.
