Here is a product for reference:
This uses a Micro-USB host cable and then includes adapters to go to Lightning and USB-C. I get that it’s a bit of an older product but I can’t even find competitors with a product like this. With a USB-C host cord it’s omni-directional and I would think it allows for better power and data transfer. However, someone correct me if I’m wrong.
Considering the huge shift to USB-C with Anker products such as charging ports and newer products developed that can use PD, I would think USB-C cables are becoming the new standard.
