Hi all
Do anyone know about a cheap alternative to Apple’s new $69 dongle that can output 4K video at 60Hz for my 11 iPad Pro?

My Cable Matters one works for my MacBook for 4K 60 Hz, but they also claim it works on the iPad Pro:

https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/3rd-generation-ipad-pro-can-support-simultaneous-4k-60-hz-and-usb-3-0.2193083/

However, the Apple one may support simultaneous USB 3, whereas most of the ones with USB don't support USB 3 speeds.

OTOH, there are also other Cable Matters ones I haven't tried that are more recent and with higher end specs.

Thank you helping me out.
I’m a little bit worried that Apple may has locked/reserved the ability to output 4K 60Hz for their own dongle. Maybe not on the MacBook’s but on the iPad. Can I ensure that they haven’t?
