The next generation of MacBook Pro will feature an SD card slot. But not just any SD card slot. These will be ultra-fast UHS-II card readers, which are around three times faster than regular SD readers.
According to Apple rumormonger Luke Miani, Apple’s replacement for the MacBook Pro will include a high-speed SD card reader. We’ve already seen plenty of rumors that the SD card reader was making a comeback, including leaked schematics from Apple. It makes sense that Apple would put the fastest reader in its pro machines, but what are the advantages for users?
“While it’s also possible to carry around an SD card reader that connects to USB or lightning ports, built-in readers are one less thing to carry around, they work more reliably, and they’re much, much faster than dongles,” Devon Fata, CEO of design company Pixoul, told Lifewire via email.
