That would drive up the cost of the unit, plus there is no benefit of using anything higher than USB 2.0 that wouldn't have any effect on latency, just bandwidth. Most pro mobile interfaces have a wall wart that has all the extra bells and whistles opposed to a basic low budget interface. This unit has onboard DSP processing. Even if mobile, you still would need to bring your laptop charger to charge your laptop. The USB 4 would also have a negative impact on your laptop battery that would drain it.
