This is a list of the best USB-C dongles for iPad Pro which you can buy right away and extend the functionality of your tablet.
Need to Make Your Tablet More Useful? Here are the Best USB-C Dongles for iPad Pro Which You Can Buy
The new iPad Pro is a giant leap forward in a lot of ways. But the one thing that really makes the new iPad Pro a 'pro' tablet is the inclusion of a USB-C port. Pair that with iPadOS and you have yourself a combo that's essentially good enough to replace your laptop completely.
But not everything can be connected to that USB-C port. Sometimes you'll need the odd dongle every now and them. For example, if you have a camera that does not have WiFi nor a USB-C port, then you have to use a SD card adapter for it. If you want to connect an external drive that is USB-A, then you'll need a dongle for that. Fret not, we have the best USB-C dongles for iPad Pro in one place that will solve all your vows immediately. We will link to the buying links as well so you can pick them up as you read along.
Apple USB-C to SD Card Reader
If you are a photographer or a videographer, then look no further than Apple's very own USB-C to SD card reader. It's the best in the business, solidly made and it has one job and it does it great - move files from your SD card to your iPad Pro. Though a bit on the pricey side of the spectrum, I would still highly recommend it over anything else.
Syntech USB-C to USB-A Adapter [2-Pack]
You don't like wires sticking out of your iPad Pro yet you need something which you can use to connect your accessories to it. Syntech has your back with their USB-C to USB-A adapter. This is not quite a dongle per se, but a quick converter that will plug straight into your iPad Pro's USB-C port after which you can connect pretty much anything that has a USB-A end.
Anker 5-in-1 USB-C Dongle
Third-party accessories have gotten crazy good these days. Needless to say that this option from Anker is one of the best USB-C dongles for iPad Pro around.

This dongle is so good that you can literally skip buying everything else and keep this with you for a long time. Obviously, this option works with a MacBook Pro too.

Satechi USB-C Dongle for iPad Pro
When it comes to the absolute essentials, then you need nothing more than a headphone jack, HDMI out, USB-A port and a USB-C passthrough for charging. This is more than enough to fulfill your needs in the world of USB-C. Satechi understands this and they have carefully crafted its aluminum dongle for iPad Pro. It has a seamless design that not only looks great, but feels like something that Apple forged itself. It's a bit pricey, but it looks good for sure.
Apple USB-C to USB Adapter
You refuse to buy a new USB-C flash drive because it works great so far and your computer has an array of USB-A ports. We totally understand. So, what you need, and the only dongle you'll ever need, is Apple's very own USB-C to USB adapter. It's a plain and simple dongle that takes the USB-C port and adapts it to USB-A. It does not get any more simpler than this at all.

Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter
The name of the dongle might be a mouthful and price handful, but if you are looking to buy Apple accessories only then this is one hell of a functional dongle. It has USB-C passthrough, HDMI and a USB-A port. It covers all the essentials and I'm certain you probably won't ask for more. But again, at a price of just $69, it might be a little off-putting for some people.
Dodocool 8-in-1 USB-C Hub
It would be very unfair not to add Dodocool in this list. They make some of the finest accessories around and USB-C dongles and hubs are one of them. This 8-in-1 option which we are highlighting packs a lot of connections, including Ethernet, USB-C, HDMI, SD/TF card slots, USB 3.0 ports etc. It will work just fine with your MacBook, as will the above options.
