In achieving the awesome looks, Apple did make some sacrifices on the iMac in terms of usability. I mean, a bunch of ports on the back is not exactly user-friendly, does it? No. It will never be no matter how you look at it. Luckily for the new iMac Pro, its Thunderbolt 3 ports are USB-C which takes the guess work out of which side is the right side. Still, guessing where the ports are is a game which I equate to carnival scam. It’s often a hit and miss thing – until you crane your neck around to the back and have a visual. While we don’t expect Apple’s design team to break the tradition and bring those ports to the front, you are not without options.

Satechi Aluminum Type-C Clamp Hub Pro for iMac

One such option would be Satechi Aluminum Type-C Clamp Hub which will bring some of the ports to the front and integrated (almost) seamlessly to your Mac. This is not a place-on-the-desk-and-make-it-even-more-clutter USB hub. This thing goes under the chin of your iMac and becomes part of it. Designed with the newly introduced iMac Pro, as well as the 21.5-inch 4K and 27-inch 5K iMacs with Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, the Satechi Aluminum Type-C Clamp Hub Pro brings to the front micro/SD card readers, a data-only USB-C port, and three USB 3.0 ports.

Available in a choice of silver and space gray to match the machine you own, you can pick ups unit as a pre-order from Satechi website for $49.99. Or you could wait it out to be available on Amazon and support this blog. Just saying…
