2 Universal USB-C Connectivity
Apple’s decision to swap out its signature Lightning port for Intel’s USB-C port on the 2018 iPad Pro is among the biggest new feature additions to bring the tablets in line with modern PC offerings.
Notably, USB-C (v3.1) is the new universal USB connectivity standard which Apple just finished transitioning its entire Mac lineup too. It delivers ultra-fast power and data transfer speeds, among other benefits, over USB 2.0.
The iPad Pro has only one USB-C port, but that one port has opened up a wealth of new possibilities that were previously unavailable to users, such as the ability to interface with third-party hardware, including but not limited to musical instruments, external 4K displays, USB-C multi-port hubs and much more.
