FWIW this thread is aimed at USB-C related stuff, so unless you're referring to the newest iPad Pro it probably doesn't apply much to your Lightning connector iPads.Not sure if this thread includes info about good, third-party charging cords, but I need a suggestion for some good, sturdy ones that won't break the bank.
Any ideas? I posted a thread asking, but have had no responses. Needed for 2017 and 2018 iPads.
Also, any good third-party blocks? The bigger ones for the iPads, not the phone ones? I need to get some replacement items for my grandkids' iPads and I just can't do that many Apple ones at once.
Generally speaking though, any MFI certified lightning cable should be fine. That's probably why you haven't seen much response. Go onto Amazon and look for stuff with high ratings and lots of reviews. Amazon Basics brand has been good in my experience, as has Monoprice brand.
For power supplies, go with well known names -- Anker has a solid reputation and is often my go-to. Aukey seems to be doing some good stuff too. Again, look on Amazon and see what the reviews say. Take with a grain of salt -- there are some people out there posting poor reviews blaming the product for their own lack of understanding or for the shipping company screwing up or other stuff unrelated to the item's quality.
What's with the histrionics. Just go buy a USBC to Displayport cable and you're done.Only $300 to plug in a monitor that I could attach to my last MacBook Pro with a $10 cable. Ingenious. Those guys at Apple just can't stop innovating, can they?
Here's the one I'm using https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XTZZYKX
Not Apple's fault if you weren't aware that such a cable exists.
Not at all. A quick google search of "USB-C Hub 4k60" produces several options supporting 4K60.I think I can buy a direct USB Type-C to DisplayPort cable, which appears to be the ONLY sub-$300 solution for attaching a 4K60 display to the USB Type-C MacBook Pros.
