Does it matter? Its the correct cable for the needs of the 16" MBP. Just use what was included ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I think that's fine, but I wouldn't use another cable on the 16" MBP to charge the laptop.
This is just...
In one sentence you pretend like it doesn't matter what kind of cable it is..that it doesn't even matter if we know
what kind of cable it is.
...and then you say you wouldn't use any other cable...because of course
it matters what kind of cable you use.
This a really good example of what a disaster USB-C is. We were better off when a cable that fit in a port was the right cable to use.
Of course it matters, because of course I want to buy additional cables, and Apple's are junk and break far too easily, so I'm not buying those.
I was also asking because I need to get an actual Thunderbolt 3 cable for data transfer from my other Mac, and was checking to see if by chance Apple had included one.
It’s the same cable as with earlier 15” models.
This is the cable it ships with. I was given this as a replacement in-store with exact matched packaging for the additional cable (and charger) that was ordered along with MBP16,1. There was an issue with the charger and to eliminate any further potential issues, both charger and cable were swapped.
