It does not matter what Apple does because it is always in the sights of both its fanboys and its haters. The new fashion theme is launching a two meter long Thunderbolt 3 cable that the Cupertino company has presented and that sincerely has not left anyone indifferent.
Like everything Apple does, criticism has not been long in coming and the internet and social networks are already on fire. And not for the cable itself, but for its high price.
This is what the new Apple cable costs
$ 129 is the price of the troubled cable. A Thunderbolt 3 cable that we can find in your online store, which is 2 meters long, braided design, supports DisplayPort output and has a USB 3.1 Gen 2 10 Gbps data transfer, although from Apple they confirm that speeds can reach up to the 40 Gbps.
The truth is that $ 129 for a two meter cable can be very expensive, we are not going to deceive ourselves. It is also true that Apple’s products and accessories, with honorable exceptions such as the new iPhone SE, are not cheap at all, especially considering that there are much cheaper alternatives from other brands. But on Reddit Many defenders of this cable have already come out to explain the reasons for the “high” price.. And no, it’s not because it has the apple logo.
First, they explain that long cables tend to have a very drastic decrease in speed compared to shorter cables. Hence, this Apple cable has such quality, because it guarantees the maximum speed despite being 2 meters long. On the other hand, Thunderbolt certification is much more expensive than USB Type C. All without prejudice to the materials used. Now, all this justifies the $ 129 depends on each one. As we always say, you spend the money you have as you want.
Luckily there is a lot of competition in the market and if someone does not want to spend $ 129 on an Apple cable, you can buy any other from other brands. It will be for options that are in the market.
