Apple has gradually improved its iPad Pro with screen support, USB-C and even the ability to use a mouse with the tablet. All these enhancements have led to more need for a docking solution if you want to try using iPad Pro as a desktop PC. MagicDock has appeared on Kickstarter, and it looks like one of the better iPad Pro bridges we've seen so far.
It is surprisingly similar to the Kensington Surface Dock, and looks like it was at least based on the hinge design for Microsoft's Surface Studio. Anyway, MagicDock has some slight improvements over what is available on the surface. You can play an iPad Pro thanks to magnets, and it even rotates in place so you can use it in portrait orientation. It all charges via the iPad Pro its USB-C port, which acts as the primary connection when the tablet goes into the dock.
As you expect from a dock, there are gates at the back to connect accessories or a follower. It is an HDMI port, a single USB-C port, a standard USB 3.0 port, and even a 3.5 mm headphone or speaker audio jack. MagicDock will be compatible with 1
The dock is made of anodized aluminum and it looks relatively solid in the Kickstarter video, but like everything from Kickstarter, you never know the true quality before the project finishes. However, Dock's creator, Steve Warren, has considered most aspects of a modern docking solution. It's even a microfiber cover that attaches the iPad Pro to protect the back of the device.
MagicDock has already reached the road past the finance target on Kickstarter after only 24 hours, but there are still a few places left to take a 11-inch model for $ 99 or 12.9-inch version for $ 109. Kickstart, it may never come or look very different in its final form, so be warned before you support it with your cash.
