Accessory company Hyper today announced the HyperDrive USB-C Hub for the 2018 iPad Pro. Apple's latest iPad Pro is the first of the company's tablets to include USB-C (replacing the Lightning port), allowing support for third-party USB-C accessories like Hyper's new device.

The iPad seems to be entering its awkward stage in life. No longer a child, but clearly not an adult.

I rather have the hub connected by a wire than all that clutter right up against the device

Great accessory,but Apple has to hate how ridiculous that looks with all those cables attached to their product. They create simplistic products but breed a third party dongle culture essentially making the product look like one big cluster fnck.

Seriously? Lol. There are people who have both a notebook and a tablet. An iPad is great because it’s touch screen and apps optimized specifically for it. It’s a totally different experience doing things on the iPad and depending on what you’re doing that experience is better.
