the manufacturer notes that 12.9-inch tablets are better off in horizontal mode. Get it here. 5. Anker PowerCore The iPad Pro is meant to be taken with you wherever you may need it. But, of course, there isn't always going to be a replace to plug your 18W power adapter into. For any situation when you need some extra battery life without a power outlet nearby, consider the Anker PowerCore. Anker still makes some of the best external battery packs on the market today — and the PowerCore 26,800 is one of its larger options. For some context, the PowerCore's beefier battery capacity can charge an 11-inch iPad Pro from dead to full power just shy of three and a half times. Get it here. 4. Apple AirPods Pro Apple AirPods aren't the cheapest wireless Bluetooth headphones out there, but they're undoubtedly the most convenient if you use an iOS device. That makes them a good companion for the iPad Pro that you can also use with your iPhone. The new AirPods Pro features all of the convenience and seamless integration of regular AirPods thanks to Apple's H1 chip. But they also sport interchangeable ear tips, Active Noise Cancelation, and other nifty features betting of the Pro moniker. Get them here. 3. Samsung Duo Plus As of iPadOS, Apple's iPhones and iPads now support generic media. With the USB-C port on the 2018 iPad Pros, it also means that you can use pretty much any standard USB-C fl ash drive instead of a specialized Lightning drive. This 128GB option, made by Samsung, also features a built-in USB-A adapter to use with other computers. With up to 300 mb/s speeds and USB 3.1 support, the Samsung Duo Plus is a well-rounded and useful option if your workflow prominently features an iPad Pro. Get it here. 2. Jelly Comb Bluetooth Mouse Since the very first iPad, Apple's tablets have always relied on touch-based input and navigation. But in iPadOS, the Cupertino tech giant has actually snuck in mouse support for its iPad lineup. Mouse support is buried in Accessibility, but it means you can use Bluetooth or wired mouses. This Bluetooth option is an affordable but well-reviewed accessory that'll let you explore turning your iPad Pro into more of a computer replacement. Get it here. 1. Tomtoc Portfolio Case If you're carrying an iPad Pro with you on a day-to-day basis, there's a good chance that you're getting work done. And while there are a plethora of iPad Pro protection and storage options out there, this portfolio case strikes a nice balance between convenience and additional features. It features a dedicated slot for your 11-inch iPad Pro, but also sports a variety of other organizational options. There are pouches and sleeves for all of your cables, styli, fl ash drives, business cards, notebooks and anything else you may need for work, school or creativity. Get it for 11-inch iPad Pro here and 12.9-inch iPad Pro here.
