My new guess is that a new charger will be released, but not a regular charger. So as not to upset original buyers of the iPad pro by making them purchase an additional charger, they may create a dock charger that uses the new three point connector for fast charging and then charge about $120 for it.
Well, measuring at the socket is probably not very accurate. The Anker charger is most likely less exficient then Apple's charger, since it has more stuff in it to handle the power IQ "magic"
Then measure it with a USB power meter which is hopefully a bit more accurate.well when nothing is connected to the Anker charger the Killowatt meter shows 0 watts that tells me the readings are accurate also if I use a longer cable the watts change to 13 what is expected because the longer the cable the less wattage it carries.
It seems like the iPad pro may be capable of charging at faster rates. I look at how fast it sends a full charge to the Apple pencil vs the pencil plugged in to usb and it's remarkable. I would imagine if it can output power that quickly, it surely must be able to accept more power and faster charge. I could be wrong tho.
They'll probably call it they're most revolutionary accessory and charge $100 for it when they release it in 2 months.
My my, you can tell the future!
actually.. he can lol
Well I'll be damned, they actually did it...... It's REVOLUTIONARY *crowd applauses* lol.
I guess ill be in for one although I'd rather wait to find a viable 3rd party option if and when they are available. That is certainly a lot of money for a charger and cable. I guess the question is then are there any 3rd party options that will work the same?
I wonder if 9.3 unlocked the support for faster charging and will now work with faster chargers. If not, then that probably means that the chipset in this new cable is helping to regulate the additional flow of power.
