So, the question is, does the iPad Pro have USB C? Well, originally, much like the iPhones, iPad Pros came with Lightening connectors only, however since 2018 iPad Pro models have been equipped with USB-C ports. This could be found on both the 11″ iPad Pro (1st gen) and 12.9″ iPad Pro (3rd-gen) that were both released that year. So if your model of iPad Pro is one of these or later, yes your iPad Pro will have USB C support.

Up to (and including) 2022 models this was USB-C only, but since 2021 this port has also supported USB4 and Thunderbolt.

You do only get one USB-C port in the iPad Pro though, meaning that using an iPad USB C expansion hub or docking station is often a good idea, particularly if you’re a creative and/or have a lot of complimentary devices you wish to plug in.
