The brand-new 11-inch iPad Pro should be untouched, due to the fact that its dimensions are the very same as in 2015s design. The 12.9-inch variation, nevertheless, is slightly thicker since it uses a new, advanced display with Mini LED innovation.

No such luck for the StudioDock– youll require to purchase a whole brand-new one if you wish to update your iPad.

Kensingtons StudioDock, the high-end $399.99 desktop hub for the iPad Pro that was launched earlier this year, isnt compatible with the brand-new 12.9-inch design striking shops today.

The StudioDock utilizes a rotatable magnetic mounting plate to secure the iPad when its plugged in over USB-C, broadening its connection with additional USB-A, ethernet, and HDMI ports. Although the only difference between the StudioDock variations for the 12.9-inch and 11-inch iPad Pro is the size of that mounting plate, Kensington says it will not be user-replaceable. Rather, the company plans to launch a completely brand-new SKU to fit the 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
