Apple is expected to hold an event later this month to unveil new Macs and iPad Pro tablets. 9to5Mac claims to have exclusive information on some of the new features coming to the iPad Pro. 

Based on information from its sources, 9to5Mac reports that the 2018 iPad Pros will come with the USB Type-C port to output 4K HDR video to external displays. This supports analyst Ming Chi-Kuo’s prediction that the 2018 iPad Pros will ship with the new 18W USB-C charger

There will also be an additional toggle in the settings to control the resolution, HDR, brightness and other settings for connected external displays. In addition, there will be a new Smart Connector on the upcoming iPad Pros which is located at the back so that it can be connected to a variety of accessories such as a new version of the Smart Keyboard.
