The ports HS08 and HS13 allow USB 2.0 devices to connect to your Thunderbolt ports. This means you can connect an iPhone or iPad to those ports using the appropriate cable (i.e. Lightning-to-USB-C or USB-C to USB-C for iPad Pro).
There is no downside to enabling HS08 and HS13 as long as you expect to connect a USB 2.0 device to those ports. However, by enabling HS08 and HS13 we had to disable two other ports in order to retain the 15-port limit.
I think the issue is that I have a Dell U3818DW monitor that also has USB 3.1 Ports, and now most of my accessible USB 3.1 ports only recognize USB2 devices. Even my Fractal Design front USB C gen 2 port is only USB2 now (it did not work with USB2 devices before). Is there a good way to get this sorted out?
