Yes, for the first time ever, support for Thunderbolt and USB 4 makes the USB-C port on iPad Pro the fastest, most versatile port ever on an Apple tablet. This means 4x more bandwidth for wired connections than the previous iPad Pro, as Thunderbolt supports 10Gbps Ethernet and paves a path for a massive ecosystem of high-performance accessories, such as blazing fast external storage and even higher resolution external displays.
