Satechi announced a new Type-C Mobile Pro Hub for the refreshed iPad Pro. Its aluminum design matches well with Apple’s latest tablet and it features both a 4K HDMI port for video output, and a USB-C PD 3.0 port so you can keep your iPad charging.
The USB-C port on 2018 iPad Pro can be used for so much more beyond charging and syncing your expensive tablet.
