Had a USB-C dock from Dell laying around. Saw my new iPad Pro and I thought “Let’s plug it in and see what happens”
Thankfully nothing exploded and amazingly several things are working on this dock:
1) Video display via the mini-display port to an external screen.
2) USB connections with keyboards
3) The iPad is charging since I have the power adapter plugged into the dock
If enough people think this is cool, I can test the other ports on this thing and see what else works. These docks can be had as cheaply as $50 second-hand. The dock is a WD15 dock from dell. I think it works with most any wattage Dell laptop adapter from the past 10 years or so.
That’s all, just thought I would share that unexpected discovery.
