    I have a 2016 MacBook Pro 13" purchased last December and I am now finding that the USB C ports seem to be getting a little larger sometimes when I touch a cable to say an external hard drive I will get a message that the drive was unplugged without ejecting properly. I have tried different cables but it happens with all. I have a Hyper Drive Hub which connects to the 2 ports on the left hand side and that is also now unstable because the connections seem loose. Anyone else having this problem?

    Mine got loose but not to a point that cables fall out. So far so good. A lot of people report that USB-C ports get loose over time, however, they are also very resilient according to most reports.

    Since you are still under warranty why don't you take it to an apple store?
