Can you use an iPad Pro (running iPadOS) with an external hard drive/SSD? In this video (which I should have posted a while ago haha) I go over how you can use an external USB SSD (Samsung T5) with iPad Pro (in my case the 11″ 64GB) and utilize the storage space for photo and video editing!

  9. Basically as you’ll don’t need a 3000 Mac to work on your video editing or photo editing and that’s where this tablet industry is heading.if you’ll think about it the future is mobility and space.the space needed for computer such as a desktop no matter what form factor people is looking for ways just to carry around their iPad insert a memory drive and work while laying down if preferred doing their work.this is the future.if the app developers keep working making new powerful apps for the iPad os then you’ll start seeing people moving away from the desktops and laptops needed to do these type of tasks.steve jobs seen this years ago with the first that we have the platform and the is now with more and more apps being created to take advantages of this platform we all should be excited where this will lead.

  23. The I Adapt USB c hub Noah is using here costs $100 (thanks to Tiny B's reply to Spencer Carruth's comment below for that info and a link to the product, see for yourself), and the Samsung SSD is about $150-$160 from what I'm seeing online. Apple charges about $150 to go to a 256 gig SSD from the base 64 gig SSD on the iPad Pro. Depending on your needs, it might just be worthwhile to upgrade to the 256 gig SSD to begin with.
