    Hi!
    I'll buy an Apple TV I was wondering if I could use the USB-C port to power another 5V device with for example a USB-C to microUSB cable? Someone tried this before?
    Thanks

    In theory it sounds good but I contacted Apple about this a while back and they said no. It's not set up for that reason.

    The Apple TV usb-c port is not a data or power port.

    The USB-C port is for service only, or connecting to iTunes to recover the OS
