    So, with USB-C there is no connectivity between iPhone and iPad, correct? Is this just showing the iPhone charging off the iPad?

    I have a 18W usb-c charger from Google (Pixel phone), as well as a Google usb-c to usb-a cable. I wonder if I could use these with the new iPad Pro 11" I ordered?
    It would be nice to be able to use the Google charger as a second charger for the iPad and the usb-c to usb-a would be good to use to sync the iPad to my older, usb-a only Mac (2012 Mini).

    Anyone concerned about longevity of the port? I fear the thin connector-plate inside the port may wear out when you plug in assecoires and power cable every day for years.

    I wish it was true. I want to stream netflix and VLC stuff to a HDMI TV on the go (for example in a hotel room).

    Now give us a proper file system and the ability to connect external storage and make us happy!

    I suppose you can not connect external storage on the new iPad Pro? (yet)

    Does anyone know of any USB-c HDMI captured cards. I’m wondering if the USB-c will be bidirectional. I’ve been attempting to want to make an app that relies on video input from an external device

    Is there a list or something of the usb-c devices you CAN plug and use with the new iPad Pro? Or is it too soon?

    AS far as I know, there are no lists .. We'll have to wait a week to find out!

    The USB-C port seems of limited use. For example you cannot transfer files with it other than photos. Even the old lightning adapter can transfer photos with USB-3 speed and there was also an HDMI adapter. I see no reason to connect a 5K Display to the new iPads just to mirror the content or watch Netflix. Even charging with USB-C power supplies was possible before....

    So, will it be compatible with the LG 5K displays? This combo would be killer!

    I bet USB storage will come with iOS 13. When Apple switched to USB-C it was an indication that they’re serious about making iPad Pro more productive.

    I would love to see that we could use the new Pro as main screen for the new MacMini :)

    I can use the iPad for 75% of all my daily use, but for iTunes backups and (ahem) file downloads, I still need an iMac,
    there are some screen mirror options, but that would still need a main screen to startup.

    Is it possible to connect two devices in the same port? At the same time

    For example, headphone plus another

    With a hub

    I'm confused about the charging cable for the new iPad pro. I know the cable end that plugs into the iPad is USB C. What type of connection is at the other end of cable?(that plugs into the charging adapter)
