USB Type-C: One cable. One port. Done.
While USB Type-A and Type-B connectors prevail, the new USB Type-C connector has been released to gradually replace the others.

Orientation and flexibility. First, USB Type-A and Type-B are non-reversible, meaning time wasted ensuring a correct plug-in. Second, they cannot be used across multiple platforms. But that's all changing, with the future-proof Type C standard marching toward ubiquity.
