    a friend has an apple TV (2nd or 3rd iteration, not sure which)

    I had a question about the USB port

    there's some confusion between a MINI-USB port (which is fairly common) and a MICRO-USB port (which is rather rare...)

    can anyone confirm that the Apple TV uses the latter, a MICRO USB port?

    what makes it confusing is when I search for images of a MICRO USB port, a lot of pictures of a MINI USB port also come up.

    so thanks for any feedback!

    Today, Micro USB (Micro B specifically) is far more common then Mini USB (Mini B specifically). This is the port you'll find on most smart phones, short of those switching to USB Type C.

    Both the AppleTV 2 and 3 have Micro USB ports.

    The Wiki page here...

    Has an accurate picture of both for a visual representation.
