I just bought a 2021 JLU sport with the Technology group package and 7" touch screen. I have the usb ports on the dash and there is also a power point in the rear of the jeep on the drivers side. I'll have to look and see if there is usb under the flap.

I'll have to check, but the implication would be that in my2020 you could use the left side as a media source but not the right side and neither one in my2021. This doesn't sound like an improvement to me.

I can sorta confirm this. I've had to get a charge only adapter so that anything plugged into the back doesn't steal the media connection from my phone in the front. My2020

A USB charge/data port on the top of the dash would be nice, maybe one in the rear by the power outlet.
Come on its 2021, Jeep should provide a wireless charging pad in the center top of dash

It's like politics... Reduce the functionality of a part and call it "added two ports" in the press release. Oh well.

Is this a thing? Send pics when you take delivery. I didn't know Jeep offered USB ports on the center arm rest in the back?
Looks like just a plug outlet according to the the picture I found on new ones with my same features. If it’s different when I take delivery I will update.

My '20 JLU has the USB ports like in the picture @JJSix posted. They are on the back of the center console above the power plug for the back seat passengers. One side has a usb symbol the other has a battery symbol (charging only)

What are the two on the top of the USB ports for?
They're USB-C instead of the older style USB-B ports below. They have the same function between the top and bottom.
