Make your iPad Pro even better

Got an iPad Pro? It’s quite a powerful device, and for some can replace a laptop, even a desktop computer. But here’s an accessory that makes it even better and more versatile.

A hub.

Yes, by connecting a hub to that single USB-C port, you unleash a lot of additional functionality, the most obvious being more ports, but for some having an USB-A port, or SD card slot, or HDMI slot will be what makes all the difference.

But which hub to buy? I’ve tested a lot of hubs, and here are three of my favorites.

HyperDrive 6-in-1 USB-C Hub

This hub feels like it’s been designed for the iPad Pro, and that’s because it has. It fits the device nicely, rather than hanging off the port. It clips discreetly to the iPad Pro, and even fits if the Smart Keyboard is attached.

It turns the single USB-C connection into 6 ports: 3.5mm audio jack, USB-A, SD, Micro SD, USB-C, and HDMI.

It is also available in silver or gray to suit your iPad Pro.

Satechi Aluminum Type-C Mobile Pro Hub

Need something smaller and simpler? 

The Satechi Type-C Smart Hub was one of the first adapters designed specifically for the iPad Pro

It offers a 4K HDMI port, USB-C PD 3.0 charging, USB 3.0 port and 3.5mm headphone jack, all over a single USB-C connection.

This is a great way to add more functionality with little bulk.

Anker 5-in-1 USB-C Hub

A cheap-and-cheerful hub that adds two USB-A ports, an HDMI port, and a SD/microSD card slot. 

The only drawback to this hub is that is does not have a USB-C port and does not support charging. Other than that, if you need a basic hub to add some backward-compatibility, this is a great hub at a good price.

$24 at Amazon
