Why does every usb c hub made for the iPad assume you’re using it without a case?
I’ve been in the market for a decent sd card reader for my iPad Pro and I stg every single hub I’ve looked at or tried either a) assumes you’re using it with a laptop, so it has a short cord and dangles off stupidly from the iPad and doesn’t reach far enough to sit on the table, or b) is designed to “seamlessly” work with the iPad Pro and assumes you’re using it without a case with any drop protection. I use my iPad every day and it comes with me all over. I have a decently protective case (not one of those super rugged ones, but a simple one that covers the corners and is rigid enough to prevent bending in my stuffed backpack) that is a hassle to take on and off. Why do all these makers assume people aren’t using a case with their $800+ iPads? I thought I had found a solution with a device that looks like a flash drive, but is a little sd reader. It worked… only if I took my case off. This is so damn prevalent that it’s pissing me off, honestly. TwelveSouth makes a hub that will actually sit on the table flat and doesn’t look stupid, but it’s $100 and literally all I want is an sd card reader.
If you have seen anything that sounds like what I’m looking for, please let me know. I mostly just wanted to vent about the stupidity all these iPad specific hubs show in not taking into account something as basic as a freaking case.
