USB-C is the latest form of USB connection technology which provides power supply, data transfer and video display through one single connection. Popular accessory maker Anker has unveiled its lineup of USB-C cables and adapters including USB-C to USB 2.0, 3.0, and USB-C solutions.

Perhaps the most interesting new product is Anker’s USB-C to Lightning cable for 12-inch MacBook users which allows users to connect iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch devices with Lightning ports directly to Apple’s USB Type C-only notebook for charging and syncing. This is indeed a really useful function and will prove to be helpful to many customers.

There isn't yet a USB-C to Lightning cable from Apple, so Anker’s upcoming PowerLine USB-C to Lightning cable could be the perfect solution for now. The PowerLine USB-C to USB 2.0 cable is priced at $15.99 and available for pre-order but the rest of the lineup is described as ‘coming soon’ without additional details.
