You might have already heard that the iPad Pro came with a new Apple-designed USB-C connection. But you might not know what adapters you need to connect your iPad Pro to power and devices such as HDMI, VGA, and speakers. Read this article from Apple Support Communities for more information about using the new technology!
What is a USB adapter?
A USB adapter is a small device that allows you to connect your iPad Pro to a USB port. There are many different USB adapters, but the Lightning to USB adapter is the most common. This adapter lets you connect your iPad Pro to a USB port on your computer or charger.
You can also find USB adapters that allow you to connect to other types of devices, such as cameras and printers.
How to tell what USB cable your device wants
One of the most important factors in choosing the right USB adapter for your iPad Pro is ensuring you get the correct cable. The iPad Pro uses a Lightning connector, which is different from the older 30-pin connector used on previous models. If you're unsure which type of connector your device uses, you can check the bottom of the device for either "Lightning" or "30-pin."
If you have an older device that uses the 30-pin connector, you must purchase an adapter that converts from Lightning to 30-pin. These adapters are available from Apple and other retailers.
Once you know what type of connector your device uses, you can choose the appropriate USB adapter. For example, if you have a Lightning connector, you will need a Lightning-to-USB adapter. These adapters are available from Apple and other retailers.
Once you have the correct USB adapter, you can plug it into your device and connect it to your computer. The iPad Pro will appear as a new drive on your computer, and you can transfer files between the two devices.
What USB adapter do I need for my iPad Pro?
The iPad Pro is a powerhouse of a tablet, and one of its best features is its USB-C port. This allows you to connect to various accessories and peripherals, but knowing which adapter you need can be confusing.
Thankfully, we've put together a comprehensive guide to help you figure out which USB adapter you need for your iPad Pro.
If you want to connect to a standard USB device, like a flash drive or printer, you'll need the Apple USB-C to USB Adapter. This adapter lets you connect devices that use a standard USB connector.
If you want to connect to an Ethernet network, you'll need the Apple USB-C to Lightning Adapter. This adapter plugs into the Lightning connector on your iPad Pro and provides an Ethernet port for connection to wired networks.
And finally, if you need to connect your iPad Pro to a VGA display or projector, you'll need the Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter. This adapter offers an HDMI and VGA port, letting you easily connect your iPad Pro to almost any display or projector.
Because the iPad Pro uses a USB-C port, you'll need a special adapter to use standard USB devices with it. There are a few different adapters available, so be sure to choose one that meets your needs. With the right adapter, you'll be able to use all of your existing USB devices with your new iPad Pro.
