So you got your new 2018 iPad Pro with universal USB-C port
Only to realize you would practically need a dongle for everything!
World’s 1st USB-C hub specifically engineered for 2018 iPad Pro
Simultaneously connect HDMI, USB-C, microSD, SD, USB-A and 3.5mm audio . All while charging at full speed through HyperDrive.
Patented soft grips that secures HyperDrive onto the iPad Pro without interfering with the Apple Smart (Keyboard) Folio
Grips are removable to work with other iPad Pro cases or devices
Replace all other dongles with HyperDrive
Compared to other dongles in the market and from the Apple Store, HyperDrive is more portable, has more features and is made of better materials. You would need multiple dongles to achieve what HyperDrive does, at a total cost much higher than HyperDrive.
Stop figuring out how to store and carry your dongles
Having multiple dongles means that you now have more items to manage on top of your iPad Pro, which increases the risk of misplacing them as you move around.
With HyperDrive, just pack and go
HyperDrive is designed to be compact enough to stay with your iPad Pro wherever you go.
Don’t look silly with dongles. Just go with HyperDrive!
Stop hanging and juggling with multiple dongles. A single compact HyperDrive does the job of multiple dongles. Dongles never look sleeker than this.

The same HyperDrive works with both 11″ and 12.9″ iPad Pro
We wanted HyperDrive to feel like a natural extension of the 2018 iPad Pro with similar product lines, thickness, right angled edges and rounded corners.
As the 2018 iPad Pro only has a single USB-C port for the HyperDrive to latch on, we had to come up with an innovative solution to secure HyperDrive onto the iPad Pro.
The end result is a sleek, minimalist design that perfectly matches the 2018 iPad Pro with almost the same thickness, with removable soft grips that secures the HyperDrive onto the iPad Pro without interfering with its or the Apple Smart (Keyboard) Folio functionality. The Worldwide Patent Pending removable grip design also allows HyperDrive to be used with other iPad Pro cases or other USB-C devices and allows for future accessories like an extension USB-C cable to the HyperDrive.
We decided to go with popular output ports (HDMI, microSD, SD, USB-A) most requested by users. Although HyperDrive takes up a USB-C port on the iPad Pro, it also returns a USB-C port as well, which supports USB-C 5Gbps data and up to 60W power delivery pass through charging through HyperDrive.

Proof of working prototype that is ready for production
The following unedited single-shot video demonstrates a fully functional pre-production HyperDrive with all (HDMI, USB-C, microSD, SD, USB-A, 3.5 audio jack) ports working. Using HyperDrive, the iPad Pro is able to connect to a HDMI display, connect to an external speaker via 3.5mm audio jack, import photos/videos from USB-C/USB-A flash drives and microSD/SD memory cards, all while being powered by a USB-C power source. HyperDrive for iPad Pro is plug-n-play and interfaces directly with iOS, with no additional apps required. Connecting devices to HyperDrive is like connecting devices directly to iPad Pro via original Apple USB-C adapters.
