In a statement from an Apple official, it has been confirmed that future teams from the company will continue to use this technology:

“Apple has partnered with Intel for the development and design of Thunderbolt for more than a decade, and today our customers of the flexibility and speed it offers in every Mac. Apple remains committed to the future of Thunderbolt, and will support on Macs with Apple Silicon »

It is nice to hear that Apple will keep this technology in its next teams, which ensures a medium that is already known, with a good reputation and already implemented.
