Another hidden feature of Xbox One S is it does not come with a dedicated Kinect Port, and players will be required a separate USB adaptor. Here is what The Verge have to say about lack of Kinect Port in Xbox One S:

“One thing has been removed, however: the Xbox One S doesn’t include a dedicated Kinect sensor port. If you want to hook up a Kinect for voice controls you’ll need a separate USB adaptor. (Microsoft says that there will be a program to offer the adapters for free to existing Xbox One owners who decide to upgrade.”
