With your 2018 iPad Pro, the possibilities are endless, but it was a bit silly that there was no audio jack for those who prefer their favorite headphones. These adapters solve that issue, and some even do so much more! Our personal favorite is the Satechi Aluminum Type-C Mobile Pro Hub because it adds your headphone jack and charging port, but so much more!

If budget is an issue, try the Kimwood USB-C Adapter for its simple efficiency at a very affordable price. If you're on the opposite end of the spectrum and prefer to buy the best of the best of the best, then you'll like that HyperDrive USB-C Hub. This monster of an adapter adds an audio jack, charger port, 4K HDMI, SD and MicroSD card reading, and a USB-A 3.0 port. Whatever you decide, this kind of splitter will make your life loads easier while using the iPad Pro.
