Not really. The Apple adapter is ~$50US, but the most recommended one (and the one I have) is by StarTech, which is ~$15 more.

which one by StarTech is it please?
what advantages does it have?

(a thunderbolt 2 to usb c adapter would not work, as there are differences between tb3 and usb c, right?)

thanks!

NOT recommended only with WIN pcs.
