Hyper reveals six-port USB-C hub for iPad Pro

This means that it's entirely possible that Apple can add this support in the future, allowing not only the USB-C-equipped iPad Pro models to gain from it, but possibly even opening up the Lightning flash drives - something we've been hoping would come ever since Apple introduces the Files app previous year in iOS 11. The company did manage to come up with some interesting updates on these devices. The headphone jack is replaced by Bluetooth headphones like AirPods, and the Lightning connector has been dropped for a USB-C port, the first time such a connector is being used on an iOS device. The fact that last year's iPad Pro outperformed Apple's 12-inch MacBook in both processor and graphics performance last year shocked everyone - the new iPad Pro is supposed to double those.

The new iPad Pro was launched in two size models- 11-inch and 12.9-inch. Until we get a chance to do so, we recommend you check in on reviews - more than likely one of which will be here on SlashGear before too long. The new Version of the popular flat Notebooks got a much improved screen with a higher resolution and a fingerprint scanner, the far more expensive Pro models. Storage on the device is handled by a 128GB of PCIe-based SSD, which can, however, be configured up to 1.5TB.

This years tablet iteration saw Apple debuting the A12X Bionic chip, a step above the A12 inside the iPhone XS, and is promised to be 50pc faster than its predecessor.

Apple announced a new iPad Pro with an extremely narrow bezel, Face ID and some software solutions to compensate for the lack of a home button.

And you may think it's evil that Apple makes you purchase the iPad Pro and Pencil and Keyboard separately, but Microsoft does the same with their Surface.

Of course, if you don't fancy the trip to an Apple Store, you can also purchase the new tablets online - although current delivery estimates are 2-3 weeks in the United Kingdom and 7-10 business days in the USA and Australia. However, not everyone is a devote Apple-only user. The device also comes in a cellular variant, which uses an e-SIM to latch onto the cellular networks. FaceID comes as standard, while the new chip allows support for full Adobe apps like Illustrator, Photoshop and Lightroom for the first time.

With the USB-A 3.0 port, the user can plug in a keyboard, a microphone, or an ethernet adapter.
