    Hi all, I have got my first iPad Pro. One of the reasons was that the usbc was this great additional feature which could be used with a variety of different things. I am really not getting that sense at all! Firstly let me clarify, it does charge the iPad fine but the following has me perplexed:

    When I first got it, no adapter for headphones - my wife has a Samsung tablet. Great I thought I’ll use that dongle. Plug it in - sound comes out the speakers! Google it and apparently we need a ‘special’ dongle for this to work! Does apple know how much customers have already paid for the tablet?

    Now, I get my usbc to USB adapter (Samsung again) and plug my memory stick into it and then into the iPad - go to the files app cause it just works (right) and nothing happens! Try other memory sticks, same thing! So help me out, is it really the case I need to buy another ‘special’ Apple dongle to enable features that should just work strait out? I know the Samsung dongle works as we use it with other phones. Feeling like a mug if I’m honest as the features the say are great don’t work out the box, I should have just got the iPad Air!

    Yes, I think you need an Apple Dongle, since your device is an Apple device.

    It seems that each maker of smartphones and tablets sets security controls so that the only brand of USB-C to Audio adapters that can work with their phones and tablets has to come from them. Apple only supports Apple adapters. Google only supports their own, etc...
