    Am I missing something? I thought the new Pros could output 4k60 to an external monitor. Neither HDMI 1.4 nor charging-only USB-C can do that...

    Yeah, they put in low-end converter.

    Though to be fair, nearly all IPP video adapters are 'low-end' in that respect (so much so the folks on MacRumours thought 4K60 wasn't possible :D) and even Apple's own USB-C adapter only does 4K30.

    The only converter I've come across that confirmed outputs 4K60 is the Belkin USB-C to HDMI adapter. Though it may be a while before those converter boards hit the cheap Chinese aftermarket for modders/DIYers.

    Let's just hope the next iPad Pro goes full TB3, then we can have true docking solutions for the professional market without the guessing game. ;)
