Apple changed up how we use the MacBook with the late 2016 edition of the notebook, removing all of your well-known ports from the simple USB port up to the much-missed MagSafe power connector, all replaced for USB Type-C/ Thunderbolt 3.
So you are going to need to get some accessories if you have one of the new MacBooks, Touch Bar or not.
Here are what we think as the best accessories for the Late 2016 MacBook Pro:
[alert type=white ]Note: There are bound to be new and more interesting options available over the course of this year, we will update this article as that happens.[/alert]
Nonda USB-C to USB 3.0 adapter
The Nonda USB-C to USB 3.0 adapter was one of the first things that I picked up for my MacBook Pro, as the “world’s smallest USB-C adapter”, it brings USB 3.0 back with an elegant and compact adapter.
Lightning to USB-C cable
If you have an iPhone or iPad and you want to sync them with the MacBook Pro easily then you need one of these, a 1m Lighting to USB-C cable that makes syncing easy.
Charging Brick Extension Cord
For some reason, Apple diodn’t include an extension cord with the MacBook Pro’s charging brick, but it’s definitely something that you are gonna need for charging.
LG UltraFine 5K Display
The LG UltraFine 5K display is a monitor that has been designed specifically for use with the new MacBook Pro, featuring a 5120×2880 resolution and P3 wide colour, three USB-C ports and power delivery and connection over one connection.
Twelve South BookArc
Twelve South’s BookArc is a great way of sitting your MacBook Pro next to that new display, featuring a sleek aluminum body and design to marry perfectly with your MacBook Pro
The AirPods from Apple are a great set of Bluetooth headphones that have been designed to work exceptionally with Apple devices, featuring auto on, auto connection and Siri connections.
Satechi Type-C Combo Hub
Satechi’s Type-C combo hub is a great way of adding more ports to the MacBook Pro, it features a design that is flush with the MacBook, providing extra ports that includes two USB 3.0 ports, a SD and Micro SD card slot, and a charging port, right where you would expect them.
