Like anything else, typescript can be misused. It would the equivalent to complain that microwaves are likely to explode and can get the same result as traditional cooking. Assuming you don't want to eat cold food for the rest of your life, microwaves can save you time when the quality of the meal isn't too-critical. Typescript done right can save you from type-errors. that's it; and that's should be time-saving enough to be valuable.

Understood. I just don’t find type errors to be common, definitely not common enough to justify the cost of TS. But some projects probably benefit a little, so I can see that. Some devs probably feel more comfortable knowing they’ve typed all the things like β€œreal” languages.
