I had a hard time understanding what about this USB-C hub made it designed for iPads specifically when reading this article.

I went on Satechi's website and found the answer, for those wondering:

The flexible cable is removable, and you can attach the hub directly to the bottom of an iPad.

I see the business of USB-c hubs remains strong though I fail to understand how the price of these devices is still that high.

Another thing I do not understand is why they invariably have only one outgoing USB-c port. This one is specifically targeted to a device with a single USB-c port so after plugging the hub, we are still at one USB-c port. So it is still not possible to plug two USB-c devices, which seem a reasonable need since many USB-c accessories are available nowadays...
