I don't know what the host controller in the head unit is capable of supporting, but maybe it's part of the upgrade? Faster data speeds would be nice for speeding up reads from large music collections.
I’m not sure about the USB version, but I’m pretty sure it’s not 2.1A. I’ve got an iPhone 8 and get just about 10-12% charge on a 30 min drive to work.
Yeah, same with my iPhone 7+. It was same in my 2016 CX-3 and the wife’s 2016 CX-5. The ports in the rear seat arm rests are clearly marked 2.1A, but they are power only. USB 1.1 and 2.0 is limited to 0.5A for normal ports. USB 2.0 Power Delivery (PD) ports can deliver up to 5A (3A for micro-USB connectors).

So, I’m pretty sure the ports are all USB 2.0.
