    Maybe “how large” is better in this context. Format is irrelevant.
    However, somehow, If video is transferred by syncing using iTunes, the transfer speed is magically faster than direct transfer. Can’t prove it though.

    3 to 4 GB per a video.

    4k videos look stunning on the new iPad Pro 10.5!

    Absolutely way faster wired vs wireless.

    I figured once I get my 506 GB full of all my media I want on my device it will be much easier and quicker to update it as time goes on. Deleting one media file then replacing it without another new one.

    For me, it took about 2.5 hours via wired to transfer 430GB of video.

    What kind of content are you watching in 4K on the 10.5 ?

    Itunes wifi sync is flawed because it still goes through/requires a router. They should have used, or updated it, to the same ad hoc based standard as the Airdrop.

    Sync is pretty important, and going through a router means it can use TCP/IP. I think - if AirDrop drops packets, the transfer will fail and need to restart from the beginning. Which could be a disaster if you're trying to sync 30GB+.

    From my internal PC SSD via USB 3.0 out so my PC is not the bottleneck I transfer at 55MBps close to Max for USB 2.0 that's enough to transfer several GB OF MOVIES
