To me, the easiest option is to use USB-C to USB adapter.

A tiny smart dongle can turn Thunderbolt 3 port into a USB port. Hence, you will be able to use your iPhone’s original cord.

Apple’s adapter comes at $19. However, if you find it too expensive, there are a number of third-party options available at a much cheaper price. [Explore the range on]

USB-C to Lightning cable can also let you charge your iPhone with MacBook Pro.

To do so, just plug your iPhone directly into the Thunderbolt 3 port on your new MacBook Pro. It’s that simple.

Apple’s official cable has been priced at about $25. But, there are several third-party options available at a much cheaper price. [Explore the range on]

That’s it!

The MacBook Pro 2016 has arrived at the most opportune time. In the wake of the fast declining Mac sales, the new MBP can work as a huge morale booster for Apple. Ideally, it would have been better if Apple had introduced Mac Pro and Mac Mini as well. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen.

If you are ready to buy to the new MBP, you would need to de-authorize your old Mac before transferring data from old Mac’s to the new one. Charmed with the Touch Bar? Make sure to find out the amazing functions the OLED panel can do on Mac.
