Sitting here looking at a pile of USB-C cables, no two of which have the same capabilities even though every one of them is completely identical, makes me nostalgic for the Lightning era, when you could grab ANY lightning cable, from Apple or any manufacturer, and know for sure that it could do ANYTHING you wanted to do with full capability.

I find it very odd that none of these types of articles ever mention this glaring fault of the USB "standard". Yes it is great that all these cables have the same connector but it is maddening that no two have the same functions and capabilities.

This is the curse of USB-C and so far, no one has been able to come up with a universally-used standard of markings or labels that will tell a user whether or not the cable in front of them will charge their device, or any device, at its full capability or provide the data, video, or audio capability they need from that cable. The Lightning standard was indeed fully universal. The USB standard is anything but.
