    Was this mentioned somewhere else? I didn't see it. Pretty big news, no other TB3-2 adapter allows this, its' all one way.

    The Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter lets you connect Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 devices — external hard drives and Thunderbolt displays, for example — to any of the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports on your MacBook Pro. As a bidirectional adapter, it can also connect new Thunderbolt 3 devices to a Mac with a Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 port.*

    * Requires macOS Sierra.

    Well considering the only Mac to get an update was the rMBP, depending on the implementation this has the potential to be very interesting. Unfortunately, I think everyone is (understandably) too busy raging out at Apple to notice...

    Yes, it's really awesome. And it's actually quite reasonably priced as well. Previous one-way adaptors very limited in functionality have been $100 - such as the StarTech one.
