3 USB-C 4K Output, Magnetic Connector
The new iPad Pro models are rumored to be the first Apple products to ditch Lightning in favor of USB-C. Rambo’s sources corroborate that fact.
While that likely means bumps to data and charging speeds, it also expands the available accessories for the new tablets — bringing them closer in capabilities to computers.
That includes the ability to output 4K HDR video to external displays. Users can control resolution, HDR, brightness and other preferences, connected external displays via a new pane in Settings.
In addition to USB-C, the 2018 iPad Pro models will also feature a new connection system for accessories. Namely, the Magnetic Connector is placed on the back of the new models.
That will allow users to connect their Pro tablets to new versions of the Smart Keyboard, as well as third-party accessories.
