Microsoft first unveiled a Surface USB-C dongle almost a year ago, promising a release before the end of 2017. The software giant has missed the launch schedule, and now promises that the adapter will be released by the end of 2018. A Microsoft spokesman says the USB-C surface dongle is "on the roadmap for later this year," in a statement to The Verge.
The dongle will connect to the new Surface Pro and Surface Laptop devices, and provide USB-C compatibility for the accessories. It is inserted into the Surface Connector in existing devices. "If you want to charge a device with a type C charger, you can do it." If you want to put and take data with a type C peripheral, you can do it, "said Surface boss Panos Panay last year. Panay also joked that the Surface USB-C connector is a dongle for "people who love dongles".
It is not clear why Microsoft has delayed the USB-C dongle, but the company has now begun to support the new connector in the Surface Book 2. It is the only Surface device that natively supports USB-C, and it is likely that future updates of Surface Pro and Surface Laptop will now be updated with USB-C support. Microsoft has cautiously approached USB-C support, and Panay explained earlier that the company has not wanted to remove ports that are important to people in the past in favor of USB-C.
