When USB 1.0 was introduced in 1996, it replaced most existing interfaces. USB spread incredibly quickly and a range of USB connectors appeared on the market. With the introduction of USB 3.1 in combination with the USB Type-C connection, a bond was formed: A port for all connections.
USB Type-C is now the most important connection option for peripherals and has become the standard for notebooks, tablets and smartphones.
