    So, I have the new MacBook Pro (model without touchbar), and I am making a trip to the Apple Store today to purchase some adapters and a sleeve. I am definitely getting a USB to USB-C Adapter, but I'm not sure whether I should get 2 of these (one for drives, etc, and one for my phone), or one adapter and then one USB-C to lightning cord.

    The lightning cord is $25, and the other adapter is $10, so I'd basically be saving $15 by getting 2 adapters versus one of each, but what I want to know is if there would be some huge advantage to getting the lightning cord as well that would warrant the extra $15.

    I'd appreciate any input.

    This one is personal preference... If you often leave the iPhone plugged into your MBP, then grab the usb-c to lighting cable and the usb-c to usb cables. OR... get two of the usb-c to usb cables the connect your regular lightning cable to that.

    Really, six of one, half dozen of the other.

    Either way enjoy your new MBP ��

    Oh and the advantage of the USB-c to lightning is you can use that to charge your devices from the USB power brick. If you have an iPad Pro it will charge much faster that way.
