One of the most important and interesting design changes that Apple made to its new iPad Pro is to get a USB-C port instead of the proprietary Lightning connector. This opened up the possibilities of what the tablet can do, eg. For example, connecting cameras, external displays, etc. For those planning to turn their iPad Pro into a computer, Satechi may have something for you.
The company recently introduced a USB-C hub for the iPad Pro, which, as its name implies, is a hub that connects to the tablet's USB-C port. From there, several ports are offered, to which users can connect other accessories and peripherals. These include an HDMI port, a USB-C port for charging, a USB 3.0 port (for connecting certain devices that use USB-A), and a headphone port that Apple removed in its latest iPad.
Now the picture is shown above showing how to connect a flash drive to the USB-C hub via the USB 3.0 port. It is recommended that you use external storage with the tablet. Now we have not tested it ourselves, but it should be noted that hiding external drives in The Verges review of the iPad Pro does not seem to be doing anything.
Instead, if you want a transfer B. Photos, you need to either attach a camera directly to the tablet or an SD card reader to the tablet. Then the photo app will be opened to start the transfer process. Note that this seems to be a limitation of iOS and not so much on Satechi, but we thought we should mention this if you're considering using an external memory with the tablet. Satechi's USB C hub for the iPad Pro costs $ 45 and is available on the company's website.
