The iPad Professional's Lightning port helps USB three.zero switch speeds
That is proper — the most important iPad of ‘em all has a USB three.zero-suitable Lightning port, Apple has confirmed to Ars Technica. iFixit discovered a controller for the brand new USB commonplace when it took the supersized pill aside, and that got here as a shock as a result of Cupertino did not precisely promote the function. The compatibility means the iPad Professional is able to transferring information at speeds that attain 5Gbps, whereas a USB 2.zero connection can solely attain a max velocity of 480Mbps. Apple had a great cause for not making an enormous deal out of it, although: you will have to get an additional USB three.zero adapter to have the ability to benefit from the potential, because the pill solely ships with a cable that may deal with USB 2.zero speeds. Drawback is, that adapter does not exist but, so you will need to cope with slower file transfers for some time longer.
