The Verge review says the USB-C port is 3.1 Gen 2 so, does that mean iTunes will sync faster on my MacBook Pro which has TB3 ports which are 3.1 Gen 2 compatible?

Depends how quick the flash storage is inside the new iPads and your Mac. I think Gen 1 is good for around 600MB/s reads and writes and Gen 2 is double that. I don’t think the iPad flash storage has been keeping up with the Mac but I’m not sure exactly how fast it was before.

You mean how slow? USB 2. Yes, 2 so around 40 MB/s tops but usually less.

No, my iPad Pro 10.5” is USB 3. I bought a faster 3.0 SD card reader and it was a lot faster. What I was saying is that IDK how fast the flash storage is in my 10.5”.
That's the connection with camera adapter with iPad acting as master.

Connect the iPad to any computer (even with USB-C to Lightning) as slave and you're down to USB 2.0 speed (or lack thereof). Even USB 3.0 would be a welcome improvement and I'm sure flash on 256GB+ models will likely saturate USB 3.0 (albeit perhaps not lower capacities).

No
So do we know yet what we’ll be able to load onto SD card. Photos only or music too or any files like word, PP etc.

I sure hop the people at Apple do something to speed up syncing times between the iPad Pro,iPhones and MacBooks or iMacs. The current backup and sync times are still ridiculously slow for having a processor inside them that competes with laptops these days. As simple sync takes ages via lightning cable
