The iPad Pro is a pretty versatile device that is about as close to a laptop as you come from a tablet. A new device called MagicDock aims to add a little more functionality to the tablet by creating a desktop-like docking solution.
What makes MagicDock worth the money?
The main goal of MagicDock is to make it easier to use the iPad Pro as a desktop computer. It is designed to take advantage of the iPad's ability to quickly rotate between landscape and portrait modes to use apps that support one another. You do not need to unpair it every time you want to rotate it, which is a nice feature.
MagicDock is also designed to slide up and down, depending on how you need to use it. For example, if you are writing a paper, you can move it up to a position more like a computer screen. If you need to do some graphic design, you can lower it all the way down to the table, making it easy to draw on the iPad Pro.
There's a bunch of magnets that promise to hold the iPad Pro safe to the dock, and the bottom is weighted, so it won't fall down if you bump it. There is also a USB-C port that connects to the bottom of the iPad Pro and a pile of ports on the back of the dock that allows you to use the peripherals with the iPad quickly and painlessly. You will find a USB port, an HDMI port, a 3.5mm audio port and a USB-C port.
The dock will be available in two colors: spaces gray and silver. Steve Warren, creator of the dock, says he plans to roll out support for older iPad models in the future, but for now it will only work with iPad Pro 2018.
Steve Warren is seeking funding on Kickstarter to bring MagicDock in the market. It has already exceeded its target, so the pier should find its way to the market. If you are interested in supporting the project and reserving a MagicDock, you can do so for $ 99 for the 11-inch model and $ 109 for the 12.9-inch.
Because this device is in the crowdfunding stage, there are certain risks in supporting it.Make sure you are aware of these risks before spending your hard-earned money.
