Apple’s Partnership with tech brands
Apple is known to collaborate with tech brands to create accessories that enhance the performance of their devices. For instance, the tech giant recently partners with New Native Union to create dock wireless charger Marquetry edition, drop wireless charger and universal cable. These are new generation chargers that provide convenient charging.
In addition to chargers, Apple also sells slim sleeve case for iPad, leather case for iPhones, Hub bridge charger and lightning cable.
Belkin is another brand that partners with Apple, launching the new Qi wireless chargers for iPhone 8 and later generations. This device boosts the charging and power of iPhones.
‘USB-C is the future’
Newest MacBook devices don’t have USB-A ports anymore because Apple is trying to shift to USB-C as a move to modernize its devices. MacBook Air and Pro 2019 only has the charging port and the new USB-C port, which also works on iPhones and iPads for charging.
A separate accessory is needed if a user needs to transfer files from a regular USB to the MacBook.
In one way, partnership with Satechi indicates Apple’s support to tech brands that can fortify the user experience of its customers. Using other devices is also not a problem, however, what Apple sells are high-tier products that provide optimal performance.
The Satechi USB-C Multiport Pro is only available at Apple website and Apple stores. The brand doesn’t sell it to its own website.
