Satechi's new USB-C hub for iPad Pro

Designed for the new iPad Pro with a USB-C port, the Aluminum Type-C Mobile Pro Hub allows the tablet to be connected to a wide variety of peripherals, such as a 4K display via HDMI or a wired keyboard via USB. The headphone jack is also valuable since the new iPad Pro lacks one for wired headphones.

Satechi's new hub can be pre-ordered now for $45 in Silver or Space Gray. The price will rise to $60 when it begins shipping around mid-December.

Satechi's new USB-C hub for iPad Pro

By comparison, the recently announced HyperDrive USB-C hub for the new iPad Pro will be available in December for $49 at launch and $100 regularly. It features six ports: a 4K HDMI output, a 3.5mm headphone jack, an SD card slot, a microSD card slot, one USB-A port, and one USB-C port with Power Delivery.

All in all, if you need SD and microSD card readers for importing photos to the new iPad Pro, then consider the HyperDrive hub. Otherwise, the Satechi hub is a good option for $40 less at regular price.

Why do they show it with a USB flash drive when that will never even work due to Apple artificial limitations?

This looks dumb to me.

Make one with a short and angled usb-c cable that runs flush to the ipad.

****ing crazy they call this a pro machine and you can’t even plug in a USB drive or external storage. What a stupid decision. On the iPhone, I can forgive because I don’t imagine working on files on my phone, but on a “laptop replacement” in 2018. They are smoking serious delusionary drugs to imagine this is a laptop replacement for anyone
USB drives have given people “computer herpes” for decades, I fully support Apple’s decision not to support them in their new-from-scratch platform (iOS).

Cloud, NAS, portable wifi vaults...pick one..

Does it just mirror what’s on the iPad screen? How’s this iPad work with an external screen? An extended canvas?
Default to mirroring (now without the compression we had on Lightning to HDMI).

Some apps (e.g. iMovie) can use it as extended canvas, devs must specifically implement it.
