The recent announcement by Apple highlighting the features of iPadOS really pointed out one thing — the iPad, and especially the iPad Pro, is becoming more of a laptop replacement than ever. A number of accessory manufacturers have come out with docks for the iPad Pro, but most are simply re-branded USB-C hubs for the MacBook line. Kanex did something completely different, and today announced the 6-in-1 Multiport USB-C Docking Station for iPad Pro. It works with both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models (3rd generation) of the iPad Pro and retails for $99.95.
So, what does this 6-in-1 dock include? USB-C Power Delivery, SD and micro-SD card readers, a 4K HDMI port, a USB-C passthrough port, and a 35mm (1/8-inch) audio out jack. What I love about the design and what makes it so unique is that it clamps onto the upper right corner of the iPad so it’s out of the way — many of the other docking stations just flop onto your desktop and take up space.
It comes in one color — space gray — and is currently only available for pre-order from B&H Photo. We hope to review the Kanex 6-in-1 Multiport USB-C Docking Station for iPad Pro soon. Until then, be sure to check the link above for information on this product.
