    For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Satechi to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Aluminum Type-C Mobile Pro Hub Adapter, which is designed to work with the 2018 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.

    Apple's latest iPads replace the traditional Lightning connector with a new USB-C connector, allowing them to do more than ever before. Because they use USB-C rather than Lightning, the new models work with USB-C accessories like Satechi's adapter.


    The Mobile Pro Hub Adapter, priced at $59.99, comes in either Silver or Space Gray to match the available iPad Pro models. Like many of Satechi's accessories, it features an attractive brushed aluminum finish.

    There are multiple ports on the Mobile Pro Hub Adapter, which expands what you can do with an iPad Pro. It features a 4K 30Hz HDMI port for attaching a display, a USB-C power delivery port for charging purposes, a USB 3.0 port with support for 5Gb/s transfer speeds, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

    The 3.5mm headphone jack in particular is essential for those with standard headphones as Apple removed the native headphone jack from the 2018 iPad Pro.

    All of the ports on the adapter can be used at once, so you can attach a display, charge, listen to music, and use a USB-A keyboard or photo accessory all at the same time.

    Don’t mean to look a gift horse in the mouth, but that’s a lot of stuff hanging off the side of the iPad.

    It looks very clean, but I agree that I wonder if it’s not too much strain on a tiny port. I guess you could use it with a little extension cable.

    Agreed, a cable to the dock would make more sense. Then again, with the limitations of iOS as they apply to the new usb-c port, I can’t think of a use I would have for any of the ports on this adapter. If Apple opens up external drive file access, that will be a different story!

    I own one. At least the first batch have quality issues:

    - They’re very loose and wobbly in the USB-C port, not sitting flush with the iPad.
    - Not all headphones work as they cannot be pushed as far in as it is designed for.

    Despite these issues, it’s a very useful device.

    Anyone else amused by that HDMI cable in the press photo being upside down relative to the port in front of it?
