Are there any flash drives that are compatible with the 2018 iPad Pros? I’m looking for something I can stick PDF files on to take to get professionally printed.

If not an option from the iPad Pro with USB-C, even a flash drive with a lightning to standard USB would work, as I can airdrop files to my iPhone if necessary.

Anyone have any tips to accomplish this?

I've used this Lightning uSD reader as pseudo flash drive (and use uSD card in standard card reader for use on other devices for transfer) -

I reviewed it here -

Note that this is Lightning-based, not USB-C, so it doesn't work with latest iPads. Roundabout, but it works. There are also wireless drives and I've used a wireless FileHub for transfer to/from iPad to/from USB devices.

I don’t want to have to spend extra money to get around the port problem, so no thanks!
