Why would you pay $99 for this. I got basically the same thing minus the playback buttons back in February on Amazon for $35. The one I got even has an extra USB-C port for data. You can use playback buttons on screen pretty easily. iPad Pro USB C Hub, 7-in-1 Adapter for iPad Pro ('https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B087BTVJX6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1')

That is one ugly look with it on the iPad. If the iPad requires such a contraption to do certain things, use a different device.
