Now that that the new iPad Pro is here and how it makes use of USB-C, this is definitely a time where charging it is more interesting. That’s because it’s something that seems unlike Apple would do.
Well, USB-C was implemented with the MacBook back in 2016, and that was not really a surprise but more of a necessity and it was also a strong statement from Apple.
However, when it comes to the iPad and the iPhone, both of them make use of Apple’s very own Lightning port. Something that no other device on the market uses.
Trading for the Universal Standard
So the usage of a USB-C for this new 2018 iPad Pro is surprising, as Apple let go of their Lightning port for something so much more universal. As USB-C is being used with a bunch of devices these days.
Along with USB-C, the new iPad Pro is also Power Delivery compatible, just as the USB-C MacBooks are now and how the iPhone X and other new iPhones.
