Both iPad Pro 2018 variants now use a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port for the first time in the series’ lifespan. The accessory manufacturer HYPER has just announced one of the first USB-C hub attachments specially developed for the iPad Pro 2018 models.
The hub was introduced as the HyperDrive for iPad Pro 2018. This USB-C hub plugs into the iPad Pro’s only USB-C port and expands to a wide array of ports, all in a pocket-sized accessory. Before you go any further, please notice that we have not yet checked this product, physically.
This USB-C hub for iPad Pro 2018 has the following ports: HDMI, 3.5 mm jack, SD, micro SD, USB-A 3.0, USB-C Power Delivery. The latter will allow the iPad Pro 2018 models to easily be plugged into your wall outlet using the USB-C power cord while the other ports remain usable. The SD and micro SD ports provide the user with the possibility to extend the device’s storage far beyond the iPad’s built-in internal capacity.
Hyper Presented The First USB-C Hub For The New iPad Pro 2018 Models
With the USB-A 3.0 port, the end-user can plug in a keyboard, microphone or Ethernet adaptor. Alternatively, you can also connect a USB cable from a DSLR camera to display photos on your iPad Pro 2018 models. You can also attach a Lightning cable to charge your iPhone, for example, while it would also permit you to connect external storage, but only to access photos and videos.
The HYPER USB-C hub for the iPad Pro 2018 models would probably work with other devices with a USB-C port. Although it is not unique, its design is ideal for the new iPad Pro 2018 models. Indeed, Hyper has just become the first company to promote its USB-C hub as being specially designed for the iPad Pro 2018 models.
The HYPER USB-C hub for the iPad Pro 2018 models come in silver and grey color schemes and work with both with 11- and 12.9-inch models of Apple’s new tablet. The hub will be available from December at a price of $99.99.
