IPad Pro's Lightning Port Is USB 3.0-compatible, Apple Confirms

Less than a week after an iFixit teardown for the iPad Pro revealed a Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0 controller, Apple has confirmed that the tablet's Lightning port is compatible with the recent Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard, something which the company didn't advertise initially.

This means that the iPad Pro will support transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps, which is more than 10 times faster than the Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0's theoretical maximum of 480Mbps.

However, haged in mind that the cable the tablet ships with is a standard Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 one, which means you'll have to purchase a separate Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0 adapter to hold advantage of the feature - sadly, such an adapter doesn't exist yet.
