Apple temporarily cuts down prices of its USB-C peripherals

Apple has announced a price cut on their USB-C adapters following complaints that the new MacBook Pro’s USB-C-only implementation for its ports causes inconveniences.

“We recognize that many users, especially pros, rely on legacy connectors to get work done today and they face a transition. We want to help them move to the latest technology and peripherals, as well as accelerate the growth of this new ecosystem. Through the end of the year, we are reducing prices on all USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 peripherals we sell, as well as the prices on Apple’s USB-C adapters and cables.” said Apple in a statement.

Below are the reduced prices for the following peripherals (including PH pricing):
• USB-C to USB adapter – $9 or Php490 (from $19)
• Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter – $29 or Php1,490 (from $49)
• USB-C to Lightning cable 1m – $19 or Php990 (from $25)
• USB-C to Lightning cable 2m -$29 or Php1,490 (from $35)
• Multiport adapter with HDMI, USB, and USB-C – $49 or Php2,490 (from $69)
• Multiport adapter with VGA, USB, and USB-C – $49 or Php2,490 (from $69)

Other USB-C cables and peripherals will be discounted by about 25%. Excluded products are USB-C power adapters and charge cables.

Do note that this is only temporary and you only have until this year to take advantage of the reduced prices.

    What a rip off. Why not just include the needed dongles, like hdmi adapter, usbc to usb adapter, for free. Good thing I got the 2015 model and did not wait for the new one. I would have to pay extra for a similar spec’ed mac plus dongles.
