USB 3.1 Type-C is rapidly becoming the new standard in connectivity for portable devices. USB 3.1 refers to the data transmission standard, whereas Type-C refers to the physical connection at the end of the cable.

Type-C cables are reversible so you can't plug them in the wrong way!

USB 3.1 recently superseded USB 3.0. It doubles the amount of speed (10 Gb/s compared to USB3.0's 5 Gb/s), making USB 3.1 the faster choice for those transferring a lot of data to their device.

USB 3.1 is also capable of outputting 100W (compared to 4.5W on USB 3.0) so can provide faster charging.

USB 3.1 is fully backwards compatible.

Just remember, your cable and two devices must be capable of supporting USB 3.1 to receive the full benefits, otherwise it will be bottlenecked by the slowest part.
