      Oh, thanks for correcting. I thought it was why some manufacturers stuck with micro-usb.

        they stick with micro-usb becuase its already their supply chain. it costs money to change all that around, and why do it when you can just make it your customers problem. eventuallly the microusb chain will become more expensive and theyll swap

        That was due to manufacturers being cheap AF. There are even problems with manufacturers swapping USB C ports into where micro USB ports were without adding the proper resistors so it doesn’t work properly.

          I googled it a bit and apparently the micro usb cling is mostly because of cost and design. I thought the cost was about licensing fees but since there are indeed none for this connector, it seems to be about how USB-C is much more complex to implement on a circuit. So in order to simplify the circuitry and also save a few pennies on every device, we’re apparently stuck with micro usb for a while.
