    from Apple product support page "The USB-C to USB Adapter supports data transfer at up to 5 Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 1)". Hope this answers your Q. ~ Mike

  • It appears to be USB3.0. My MacBook reports up to 5 Gb/s speeds

  • Apple support article HT204360 states:
    "The USB-C port on your MacBook supports data transfer speeds at up to 5 Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 1). On MacBook Pro, the ports support Thunderbolt data transfer at up to 40Gbps and USB data-transfer at up to 10 Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2)."

  • USB C input (or using adapter) absolutely accomodates USB 3.0 (speed)
