Instead of using the Mini DisplayPort connector, which Thunderbolt has used since it was first introduced, Thunderbolt 3 is moving to a USB Type-C connector, which Apple introduced with its new MacBook. As a result, we will likely see USB Type-C make its way to the entire MacBook lineup throughout the next few years.
Anandtech notes that the move to Skylake gave Dell the opportunity to add Thunderbolt 3 to the XPS 13 through a USB Type-C which also supports 10 Gbps USB, VGA, HDMI, Ethernet, and charging. The new connector can be found in Dell's XPS 12, XPS 13, and XPS 15 laptops.
Earlier today, a rumor predicted that that Apple was working on a newly designed MacBook Air for unveiling at WWDC 2016. The company is also expected to update the MacBook Pro with Skylake processors sometime next year.
