    I'm using this one:
    F4634836-39F3-4EA6-BCA4-E094AF9E9E47.jpeg

    It works fine, shows up in my files app....it tends to get hot when playing movies though

    I'm also using the SANDISK Dual Drive USB Type C. How do you guys remove your USB C from the iPad since there's no safety remove?

    For those who are wondering.

    11" iPad Pro Max charge speeds to 100%
    • 12W charger 5 hours & 33 mins but at 7.5W as it doesnt support 12W
    • 18W charger 2 hour & 53 mins
    • 61W charger 2 hours & 36 mins but at 27-30W
    Charging strategies

    • 12W charger for overnight charging
    • 18W charger for the car

    Why do this? Well if you plan to keep your iPad Pro until December 2025 and want to preserve the battery.

    Hi guys, I recently purchased the UAG case, and no tempered or plastic screen protector will fit. there's about 0.5mm lip.

    What brand does a case friendly tempered glass?

    TIA

    I heard that there is no screen protector that will fit the UAG case :(. The only rugged case that i know that can fit screen protectors is the otterbox defender, I am currently using one and have a tempered glass in it.

    Mmm....last resort: go to ghills and find a no-brand tempered glass protector (not the full glass coverage type) to see if it will be compatible with your UAG case.

    Last, last resort: liquid type glass coating.

    For a basic consumption and productivity device, given that I do not have any other apple devices in my ecosystem, is this still a viable purchase? Activities would be basic surfing, some spreadsheets, videos (mostly consuming not creating), possibly accessing things from a portable hdd, some games. Appreciate any input you may have.

    I can't believe how cheap this iPad can be sold in the grey market, official price the lowest tier is ₱51,990, the grey market unit is ₱41,000.

    Almost had a hard time selling mine earlier this week.

    So sad.

    My 256GB 11" toppled over from the bathroom mirror and the laminated screen hit the head of the faucet.

    It was enclosed in a military spec case with a screen protector.

    Now my screen looks like a car's windshield that was hit by a high speed pebble.

    Dark mode hides most of the damage.

    Looked online and repair cost is $499 + 12% VAT.

    I was planning to keep this until 2024 iPad Pro comes out.

    Good thing is the screen still responds to my touch. The epicenter still allows for clicks.

    LCD has some discoloration around the impact point.

    Still buying a new iPad Pro by 2024.

    No regrets though! Makes me feel like I’m typing on my old 2011 MBA. And all I can say is... I LOVE IT.

    Ordered it online here in Spain. Took 3 weeks to arrive :)) Still waiting for my DBrand skin to arrive so I can comfortably just remove the ipad when i really want to use it as a tablet. Haha
