USB-C is a USB standard that supports power, data transfer, and video output simultaneously.
If your portable Mac has one or more USB-C ports, you can connect it to a USB-C power adapter to charge your Mac. If you have an iMac or portable Mac with USB-C ports, you can use a USB-C to Lightning cable and USB-C adapter cables to connect your Mac to other devices and displays.
