    I have seen it mentioned in a few threads, when people were comparing using a USB-C 2.0 rated cable vs a USB-C 3.1 cable. Sounded like some significant difference in transfer speeds.

    If you’re using the included cable it’s still USB 2.0 data speeds

    I won't be using the included cable when I get mine. Ordered a few of the 3.1 cables in different lengths and look forward to seeing the speeds firsthand when I first restore from iTunes backup.

    Using the included cable, I can sync a 5.19GB movie in 2m56s. I bought a Belkin TB3 40 Gbps cable and sync that same movie in 41 seconds. Wow!

    Yes, the speed difference is very noticeable, feeling glad about the getting the 512, as it's so quick to move stuff onto it.

    Wish they'd moved to USB-C with the iPhone Xs now.
