- Forum: Future Apple Hardware
Forced? There was only about a year where Apple was shipping Macs with Thunderbolt and not USB3.0, and nothing about Thunderbolt meant users couldn't use USB2.0 ports with either USB 2.0 storage, or USB3.0 storage (at USB2.0 speeds, but with a bit of future proofing). This is a rumour about one machine. Plenty of other Apple machines have more ports for those people that have other needs.
