 USB 3.1 will support garden variety passive cables, where the higher throughput of Thunderbolt 3 will require expensive/proprietary cables with embedded circuits (which has been true for all Thunderbolt cables since the outset).  What will be interesting to see is whether Thunderbolt 3 devices are going to have backward compatibility to USB 3.1 if used with passive cables. Edit:  From the Ars article linked below:

iOS allows users to turn off location tracking, etc. at the app level (Privacy -> Location Services). And this is why that's needed. "While Using" is one thing, "Always" is something else entirely.

Which car models are shipping with CarPlay?
That's one way to reduce demand on their crappy network, drive new customers to the competition...
