Not only are their different versions of USB, there are also different versions of USB connectors. Ever wonder how many different USB connectors there are and what they are called?
Well, here’s the answer:

- Type B
- Type C
- Micro USB

Most large peripherals use Type B, while smaller devices use either the micro or mini connectors.
