It has a USB-C port instead of a new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro Lightning port. However, because the device has a new port, this does not mean that the USB-C connector works with iPad Pro instantly. There are still some limitations, but USB-C makes it easy to connect to external displays, cameras and other accessories.

USB-C connector performs many tasks. Apple's laptops allow all USB-C ports to run Thunderbolt 3 ports (except 12-inch MacBook), a multifunctional display that enables speeds and bandwidth capabilities, and lets you connect to a single port.
There is no Thunderbolt on iPad. It has a Port of USB-C 3.1 Gen 2. This means that it can reach a maximum of 10 gigabits per second, allowing the iPad to bring up to 5K monitor up to 60 frames per second. However, there is a catch.
In fact, there are small stars and holes to be aware of everything about the iPad Pro's new USB-C. Strain it.
Connect external displays
The new iPad Pro can connect directly to the USB-C display, which connects to the DisplayPort standard. You can connect one USB-C cable to the iPad and an external monitor with the 4K LG UltraFine display, as well as the other USB-C port. The iPad supports the HDR10 output, so it can take full advantage of the high-performance dynamic range displays such as 27-inch LG 27UK850.
The iPad converts the screen, and some programs have a special benefit of extending the screen. For example, Keynote will appear live on the live display on an external display and on the speaker's iPad. You can connect to the TV to display Netflix movies on a large screen, for example. Note that the Mac is not as flexible as the second display.
You can not use a USB-C cable in the box in the iPad box. You have high bandwidth & # 39; a USB cable that supports connections. This includes the USB-C cable included with the display. If you do not have it. In the case of cables conveniently confusing, Apple recommends purchasing the Thunderbolt 3 cable from the Apple Store. You can purchase this mark for $ 10. Although the iPad does not support Thunderbolt, the cables are compatible with USB-C high bandwidth.
The iPad can display on the 5K display. However, the LG's 5K UltraFine display, which is being sold by Apple, is incompatible. Why? It has a USB-C connector, but this is a Thunderbolt 3 display. The iPad device does not support Thunderbolt. Currently, the 5K USB-C displays are very small, and we do not have the best offer anymore.
If you want to connect to a display that does not have a USB-C port such as HDMI, use the model or adapter. The iPad Pro can use the adapter to support the HDMI 2.0 specification (although no one is yet available) that supports 4K resolution at 60Hz and compatible with adaptive adapters HDR10 and Dolby Vision.
Apple wheel for HDMI is an Apple USB-C digital AV multichannel adapter. It connects to the iPad Pro USB-C port and connects the HDMI output, the USB-C port for the power, and the standard USB-A port. Apple Adapter outputs 4K at 30Hz frequency. If you need to connect to old school projectors or similarities, you can take the USB-C to VGA-adapters.
Charging other devices
The USB-C port on the iPad Pro can power up to 7.5 Watts, up to charging speeds. If you have a USB-C Lightning cable, you can connect the iPhone and charge the iPhone to the iPad. If you have two new iPads, you can connect the USB-C with a USB-C cable, USB-C cable, and charge the other. One iPad receives power at the same time.
Third-party USB accessory accessories can receive up to 7.5 Watts, add them. If you have a USB-A accessory, you can purchase a USB-C-USB-A adapter.
Apple has recently released a USB-C cable for Apple Watch, so Apple Watch can charge the iPad's magic battery and charge any intermediary substitutes.
Import photos and videos from external storage
The iPad does not support public external storage. You can not connect to a USB-C flash drive and view files in the Files app. This is an operating system limitation, which many expect Apple to upgrade to the software in the future, but it is impossible today.
However, you can use the Photos application to import photos and videos from USB storage. If you have multiple photos on your USB Hard Drive, you can connect it to an iPad and use the "Import" tab in the Pictures application to take photos and videos.
It works with the camera. Most cameras have USB-C or mini-USB ports. Since this $ 6 USB-C mini-USB cable is a compatible adapter or cable, you can capture it with the camera and connect it to the iPad immediately to import files and view photos on the big screen.
This is exactly the case for importing an SD card. Apple now offers USB Card Reader SD Card. Connect it to iPad Pro and insert an SD card and lets you import your photos and videos. It even supports fast transfers with UHS-II cards. USB is an open standard, so if you have Apple's official offerings too expensive, you can find cheap USB-C USB-C wheels.
Connect to hardware keyboard and wired internet
The iPad has many USB accessory drivers. iOS does not support the installation of additional drivers, but supports an amazing number of major external devices that connect and play with your computer.
For example, the hardware keyboard works. If you have a USB-A keyboard, you can use the USB-C adapter to turn it on and find it on the heart of your heart. Of course, Apple recommends you to use Bluetooth Keyboard or Apple Smart Keyboard Folio.
Another thing that's supported by the iPad is Ethernet, so if you can not use WiFi, you can use a wired network on your iPad. You can get USB-C Ethernet and E-Gigabit Ethernet on iPad Pro. On the IOS Settings screen, a new section for Ethernet appears when it is detected.
Connect to speakers, microphones, or audio MIDI devices
The iPad does not have a headset jack. You can use the $ 9 Apple USB-C device in the headphone jack adapter to connect wired headsets or speakers. If you have a USB-C headset, they will connect and work straight.
You can also add audio devices, such as MIDI keyboards or microphones via USB. In some cases, iPad 7.5 W will come out of the port, enough for charging small accessories, so you need a USB-C cable. Additional power supplies are available until the USB bus has enough power. Use the applications like GarageBand to connect with MIDI accessories.
One way to do this is to use the Apple USB-C digital AV multichannel adapter. Ignore the HDMI output, add power to the transient USB-C port on the adapter and connect the accessory to a standard USB port. After that, the accessory USB-C emits electricity by charging.
Connect the multi-port hubs
As a final, USB-C bandwidth is high enough to handle multiple accessories simultaneously with the single port. You can import all of the above images, displays, microphones and more. you can mix with one another. You need the appropriate hub and there are loads to choose from in the market. Here's a cheaper and cheerful $ 20, offering an SD card reader, micro SD card reader, and 3 USB-A ports. As always, how far is the available power output limited at the same time. The Apple USB-C digital AV multicast adapter is mainly a hub offering HDMI, power input and auxiliary USB-A ports for accessories.
Most of this has been made possible with older iPad devices, but always requires adapters. Lightning for USB-C opens the iPad to all peripheral devices that can be connected directly. The USB-C's optional bandwidth lets you do some things that you have not been able to do before. Now you can connect to the 4K display and camera simultaneously, or you can connect to a single 5K display at 60Hz update speed. The power of 7.5 W is also new.
