The BEST Accessories for YOUR iPad Pro 2020!

by birtanpublished on December 5, 2020

It is no surprise that the iPad pro 2020 the brand new iPad is one of my favorite devices ever made like I this has basically been like attach this is not my hip but imagine if this were my hip it would be attached to it all the time because I absolutely love this device but a device by itself like no matter how good this iPad is it's only as good as like this support is like the accessories that you build around it so what are my favorite iPad pro 2020 accessories let's find out oh here here well they're in here what's up everyone on the everyday dead and if I can figure it out you can figure it out so let's

Get to it so there are gonna be a few different kind of accessories in here there's gonna be a few different like builds I guess you could say of what these things are gonna be because I used the iPad in a couple of different ways one I used the iPad as like a Content browsing thing here in the house when I don't just want to watch YouTube videos I don't just want to watch funny cat videos on my phone I watched on the iPad and that I have a screen protector on here and that's the first thing we're gonna talk about is if you're gonna have a device like this that is like 50 I

Guess since half of it is screened it's 50% screen you really want to make sure you protect that no matter how good the glass on one of these devices is it's eventually gonna scratch and so I just bought a very cheap like glass protector you're probably definitely not going to be able to see that but a you can see the light but definitely number one accessory get a screen get some kind of protector if most of your device is a screen protect that screen they're just moving we're moving today the second way I use this iPad is like for a travel computer and I use this a

Lot to travel around everywhere and so this one this is actually the big part of all the accessories so the first up that I use is the Apple like branded keyboard for the iPad I love this thing this keyboard is a lot of the reason that I even love the iPad I mean look at this it just fits on there like perfectly fits in super snug the iPad doesn't fall out of there I've had like on my iPad non-pro if you saw that video I'll leave it linked somewhere around here if you saw that video the keyboard you can buy with the non pro it really comes off it's kind of hard to get lined

Up but this one it's just so easy it's just so easy I actually even though my wife hates the sound of these key words I love typing on this thing it's very satisfying it's fast it's efficient and it just when you close it all up it is I mean there is not another computer out there that really fits up this kind of space in another so to complement this and I don't really know why I got it but it's the iPad pencil the only time I use this is when I'm out and about I don't know I haven't actually used this one yet I've had an iPad I had the iPad pro 2018 for a very for like a

Year and I didn't really use the pencil I buy it just because it's like it's part of the kit right you gotta have part of the kit and I do really I like it works better I'm gonna edit this so it looks like I did on the first truck I like I like the snapping I like just how satisfying it is to snap it on there is it useful if you do a lot of stuff where you gotta like be a creative and draw maybe it's useful we might just cut out the whole part about the so another one of the real reasons that I don't even need the pencil anymore are used to use it as

Like a mouse surrogate before there was a lot of like Mouse support so in the next accessory is I really like the Apple Magic Mouse I know a lot of people don't like this thing but I love it both on my iMac and on the iPad for a couple of reasons one it's really small – it just pairs very easily with all Apple stuff what I really like on here is not just that you can you know scroll by going up and down on the mouse but you can also scroll sideways and laterally like you can go horizontally and I use that all of the time especially because the main thing I use my computers for is

Video editing and being able to scrub through a timeline without needing a trackpad or without needing to always physically touch the screen it's so useful and I love the new Mouse integration with the iPad this magic mouse this is actually this is my wife's Magic Mouse so I just needed it now because I'm using the other Magic Mouse in the computer room I wonder if she's gonna watch this but I love the magic mice you can set it up there's a few things that if you're new to Apple you may not realize you can get a right-click on these things you just

Have to set it up in the menu system cuz you look at just one piece of glass there's not a right-click but you can set it up to have a right-click and it just it fits like and she's so small it fits in all sorts of carry-on accessory pouches and speaking of carry-on accessory pouches let's get to my favorite XS ouch and this is the Native union you can actually buy this on Apple's website and I think that's where I got it I don't remember what like product line this is I just the only reason I know it's Native union is it says right there

Native Union I bought this this is absolutely my favorite like accessory pouch that keeps everything lined up it's so satisfying it's got great zippers I don't know that it's actually waterproof but if you can see right here it does have like water resistant zippers and your electronics are kind of like they're afraid I'm afraid of water I'm afraid of my electronics getting wet like there's some double fear in there and I do like it it's got the water resistant seal around the zipper are these YKK zippers YKK zippers are my favorite if you've

Seen I don't know if these are YKK but these are really good zippers but let's see what we've got in this pouch number one if you're going to be using any kind of Apple product after what like 2016 you got to have your dongle and this is the j5 create I bought this at Best Buy it's got the standard connections that you really need HDMI it's got a selection of USB it's got USB c4 power it's got Ethernet but what I really needed for micro SD and SD card plus it goes straight into USB C you've always got to have like everybody has their preferred dongle this is my you have to

Have a dongle if you are using Apple products there's just not there's no way around it doesn't matter if it's the iPad doesn't matter if it's a MacBook doesn't even matter if it's on the iMac because the way the screen set up like everything's behind it so you need a dongle so you can just easily access stuff Apple needs dongles get one next up in our can we open this better next up we've got the dongle but what do we like what could we plug into it and one of the things that like so storage on small devices like this is always a problem this one's a 512 gigabyte hard

Drive the base model has a 128 gigabytes so if you get one of the smaller models or even if you just need like more storage space I love these samsung portable t5 solid-state drives I carried one with me everywhere I carry this thing everywhere cuz it's small it's crazy lightweight I should probably get a scale to start weighing this stuff but it's super lightweight it's very Esau it I mean it takes up no room it doubles my storage capacity with not really needing to bring anything else love them highly recommend them the next thing we're

Going to talk about is so one of the weird things about needing a dongle and needy I pad is because you can't just like natively plug an SD card in there or sometimes it used to be it's not as much anymore you could have like weird file problems if you're trying to import like Sony footage again I haven't had that problem yet I hopefully hopefully it's totally fixed but one of the things you can do is you could set up like a Wi-Fi like this is a raft power like wireless hub so you can plug an SD card in here and then you can connect through their

App and then have access to all of it like a wireless Drive like you could set this up like a network attached storage drive with SD cards and it just like it fits in this thing it's super useful it also doubles as a battery it has no charge right now but it doubles as a battery so not only can you use this to set up like your own like personal network you can also use it to charge your equipment and you can plug it straight into an Ethernet cable if you need to set it up as a more directed type storage instead of just Wireless I'm a very big very big fan of this

Thing I do think they have a new updated version of this I'll leave links to all this stuff in the description below um I do think there is a newer version of this I've had this for about a year and a half this also comes with me everywhere amazing next up I was talking about power right because you are gonna need some kind of power like yeah that's from he-man I'm old enough to know who he may be you're also gonna need if you're travelin if you're doing a lot of like video production or even if you're just doing a lot of like browsing on the Internet if you don't have access to

Like being able to plug into a wall you got to have a battery and so this is the battery that I take with me everywhere this is a 10,000 milliamp hour battery from Lenovo I think I just bought this at like the checkout of Best Buy you know as you're like walking out a Best Buy you're like hey all that stuff that I don't need but I'm probably gonna buy cuz it seems like it's not that expensive but it's all gonna add up to like a hundred bucks and I only came in here to buy like batteries that that's where I got this thing but it's very small it packs a lot of power this is an

Older version it doesn't have USB see I do kind of wish it had USB see but it works for what I need it's got USB it can charge with micro USB and then you can see how much battery life you've got left from the top here and I liked it it's got this grippy thing right here can you hear that I like that it's got this grip here because it's very easy to hold one of the problems with like technology in a technology sense is it's if it's slick you're gonna like drop it and you don't want to drop it I don't want to drop it I drop stuff all the time if you've seen my videos you'll

Know that I drop stuff way way too often so power you need it gotta have it next up and this is kind of like the last big thing I want to talk about we do have smaller things like you always got to have cables this is a USB to USB C cable I've got cables everywhere I also will have a lightning cable to charge my phone and it charge the mouse because they take lightning speaking of charging just because you have a battery a lot of times you're just gonna plug into the wall anyway right and so what I like to have is this is a who even makes us Insignia makes this but this is a

Wall plug with lots of USB I more and more as you go to like hotels you go traveling it's USB anyway but this lets you plug into one outlet and you get four slots four USB to charge this thing is does it say what its output is I don't know what the output on this thing is but it's been enough for me to be able to work while charging the computer and a big thing when you're doing like travel with computers and stuff if you have too big of like a voltage pole sometimes if you're on an airplane it will just shut off and not work you got a balance like your power needs

Versus the size that thing you're gonna take and this is a big fan of this it just fits in there really well you can kind of see right like there's a theme among all of my gear so all of the gear that we've talked about so far can fit on top of the iPad mostly can we get it let's do some let's do some Tetris doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo I wonder if I'm gonna get copyright claim ok look at that all of this stuff can fit on top of the iPad and this turns it in to like a pro production like it doesn't even have to be video production like are you do you write

Scripts do you do websites look at this all of this stuff fits on top of this it easily goes in a backpack you didn't even need like a huge gear bag to carry this stuff around it's fantastic but there are a few other things that I want to talk about and one is I don't only use that for production sometimes I like to play a little bit of video games and so I use this this is the SteelSeries Nimbus now this works with all sorts of Apple devices you can get it to work with your iPhone you can get it to work with your Mac but it also works really well for iPad it pairs really easily and

It's got all the same buttons that you need to play video games so if you're playing like Knights of the Old Republic on your iPad I'm not saying I played Knights the older public online pay but let's say you're doing that you need a controller I hate playing games on touchscreens one of the things that I do kind of wish and you heard me talk about this in earlier videos about the iPad one of the things I like about the old iPad is it has physical buttons I love physical buttons I absolutely miss having physical buttons and this this little controller

It doesn't fit in here you will need a little more space to bring it but this the buttons feel great can you hear that like they feel great they work well they're very responsive it pairs easily and like I like gear I'm a sucker for gear that just feels good to hold and this feels fantastic in the hand and like I said it pairs really easily the only negative that I have about this device one don't buy this if you do this will only work with Apple devices this doesn't like cross there's not a cross-platform device and two it charges with lightning I really we need to start

Moving away from lightning I am NOT a big fan of or support of lightning USBC for everything even though this looks like a USB C port don't be fooled by it it's not it's lightning so just make sure if you get that you bring a lightning cable if you want to charge it and I do it last few things I want to talk about and this is more so we talked about travel we talked about gaming now let's if you're gonna use this as like an actual like your only computer there's a few things that I think you're gonna need to really take this to the next level and one is some kind of

Actual keyboard like we talked about the like the travel the folio keyboard but I really like using the magic the actual magic keyboard with the new Mouse support with the new bluetooth support is very easy to pair a legit keyboard to your iPad and this is the one that I already have one of these so you don't have to buy as an expensive of a keyboard as this I have it all ready for the iMac I wouldn't buy one specifically for this you could use just like a cheapo one if you watch my series reviewing the cheapest I've talked about cheap bluetooth keyboards that you can

Use for iPads you could get one of those too but you do need something so you can sit down you can have the iPad somewhere you can have your screen set up like if we're talking about the screen that's over here right now that you can't see but I'm looking at um you could just very easily have everything set up with the mouse and now you're in like legitimate computer territory so again you can have the small keyboard for travel get a real keyboard if you're going to turn it into more than just a travel computer and if you are going to turn it into like a

More legitimate computer you might want to move into like Apple's actual devices so the reason I say this as opposed to dongles these are still dongles but they're Apple approved dongles this is the digital like the video one where it's got the HDMI it's got USB see and it's got regular USB on here the reason I recommend this one is sometimes dongles like this if you buy a cheapo dongle it will have problems connecting or will have problems like sometimes this gets real hot if you have a lot of things plug into it so I would recommend getting the regular Apple one

It gives you a lot of the same functionality you will have to then use another dongle like this one the SD card if you're trying to import footage so one of the things that you could do is use this to get SD card slot import the footage then move over to this dongle is that a big pain in the butt yes welcome to using devices that don't have built-in slots so you can't always use a dongle I have had problems with dongles not just this one I've had problems with lots of dongle so I always this isn't like a travel solution this is a keeping the studio in case of

Problems solution because there's always there is always going to be problems if you're making content are you making any kind of stuff so these are my favorite accessories for the iPad pro 2020 I would probably say the main accessory that I love for the iPad pro 2020 is the iPad itself gotcha trickeration what would what would I say of all these what is my favorite accessory it's tough because I very much love the new Mouse support that's probably the biggest feature that I really like on iOS 13.4 but I really like this keyboard the keyboard is a lot of what sells me on

IPads in general so I'm gonna say the keyboard is my favorite the mouse is the quicks runner-up so if you can only have to get a mouse and get this keyboard but what are your favorite let me know in the comments below what are your favorite accessories for your iPad I would love to there's probably ones that I don't even know of are out there and I'd love to hear what you have to say and if you like this video I bet you'd like to see a video about all of this stuff kind of together as I compare this iPad the iPad pro 2020 against the iPad standard from 2019 spoilers there's not

That big of a difference and if you want to watch that video you can click right here click click click click click click click thanks for watching
