Kanex announces unique 6-in-1 Multiport USB-C Docking Station for iPad Pro

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.

Apple’s laptops are things of beauty — thin, lightweight and fast. Sadly, not a lot of accessory manufacturers seem to take this into account when designing hard drives to work with the MacBook line.

StarTech’s new USB-C Capture Device for HDMI Video (US$259.99) is a very capable tool for capturing HDMI video to your Mac or PC.
