If you’re wondering what ports you’ll find on the new Touch Bar MacBook Pro, here’s a hint: lots of Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and not much else.
Apple has removed the MagSafe 2 charging port, HDMI port, SD card slot, Thunderbolt 2 port and standard USB ports. These ports have been replaced by four Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports and the aforementioned headphone jack.
The company seems to be focusing on the new ports for their more compact design and faster data transfer speeds.
As such, you’ll probably have to pick up a few adapter dongles, even though most users now live in an age of AirDrop, Dropbox and other cloud and Internet-based services.
