As much as Apple's computers have led innovation in design, they also may have taken the minimalist approach too far with all their recent models only offering USB-C ports.
User have let their opinions be heard, and dongles are not the way. This may just be a case where the users made just enough noise to get Apple to change things for the better. The news comes after a note to investors alluded to more ports coming on the upcoming MacBook Pro models. This was also purportedly backed up by mention of no need for users to purchase dongles.
I have recently started using a 16" MacBook Pro, so after years of just reading about the dongle life, I am now living it. I understand the desire to have less ports, but it comes at a cost. That cost is keeping track of and dealing with dongles. The MacBook Pro has always been the workhorse chosen by numerous creators, so I feel like it should have everything you need under the hood. This is especially true with Apple's premium price tag. Features like an HDMI port, an SD card reader, and USB ports simply make devices easier to use and more capable.
What do you think? Is the MacBook Pro fine with only USB-C? I'm all for less is more, but hopefully, it can be without dongles this time. I know I'm not alone in hoping they are right about this rumor.
