Recommended Posts

+John.    1,395

To make it easier for customers who purchased a new MacBook Pro to make the transition to USB-C, Apple has dropped the prices on all of its USB-C adapters by $6 to $20. 

The simple USB-C to USB Adapter, formerly priced at $19, is now $9, while the more expensive USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter, formerly $49, is now available for $29. Even Apple's newly released Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter has seen a price drop from $49 to $29. 

 

A full list of prices on the adapters in the United States is below: 

- USB-C to USB Adapter - Was $19, now $9 
- Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter - Was $49, now $29 
- USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter - Was $69, now $49 
- USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter - Was $69, now $49 
- USB-C to Lightning Cable (1m) - Was $25, now $19 
- USB-C to Lightning Cable (2m) - Was $35, now $29 

Apple is also dropping the prices on all third-party USB-C peripherals available from Apple,com and Apple retail stores. USB-C accessories will be discounted by about 25 percent, with some accessories, such as SanDisk's USB-C SD card reader, seeing a steeper $20 discount, dropping the price from $49 to $29.

Considering the ridiculous pricing on their laptop, you'd think the AV/VGA multiport adaptors at the very least, would be in the box.  After all, they're the ones who decided to screw over their customers by dropping essential ports and putting progress back 20 years by bringing back the spaghetti tangle of wires..
