You've got the brand new iPad Pro. It's the first iOS device to have a USB-C port rather than a Lightning port. Whether you picked up the 11-inch or the 12.9-inch version, you may find yourself in need of some USB-C adapters and cables. Here are some of the best.

I personally bought Apple's USB-C to USB Adapter. I'm not even sure if I'll need it much, but I figured it was better to have it on hand just in case I need it quickly. I can use it for both my MacBook Pro and my iPad Pro. I'd recommend it generally for its flexibility, but of course you may have a specific use case for the other items on this list.
