In case you didn’t know, Apple’s latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro for 2021 is a hair thicker than previous models. The size difference causes a problem with various accessories, including Apple̵
The Kensington StudioDock is a nice $ 399.99 stand that adds multiple ports, including USB-A, Ethernet, and HDMI, to the iPad Pro. Essentially, it turns into some sort of iMac. The bottom even doubles as a QI wireless charging pad for your iPhone or AirPods.
Apple’s iPad mounts to the StudioDock using a rotatable magnetic mounting plate, allowing users to easily switch from landscape to portrait mode. Unfortunately, the new iPad Pro (available today) is 0.5mm thicker than the 2018 and 2020 models that Kensington designed the dock for, and it won’t work.
So if you’ve bought that gorgeous new 12.9-inch iPad Pro and want to use it with StudioDock, you’re out of luck. Fortunately, the company has confirmed that it will be releasing an all-new SKU and model specifically for the 12.9-inch 2021 iPad Pro. So if you haven’t bought the StudioDock yet, but are planning to upgrade your tablet, you may want to wait.
It’s worth noting that the new 11-inch iPad Pro doesn’t have this problem as it uses the same dimensions as previous models. Only the larger iPad will not work with the Kensington accessory until the new model arrives.
