Does the Smart Connector connection allow data transfer? Or is it exclusively for charging?

I'd love to simply plug this into my computer and be able to use it while I'm doing app development on my iPad Pro.

  • I have just discovered that you can not do this. I was going to use this with the duet display app as that requires a wired connection and it doesn't work. It only gives charge to the iPad which is a shame. I hope logi can fix this with a software patch unless it's a limitation of the smart connector.

  • Logitech says: BASE passes only electrical current through the Smart Connector. However, while your iPad is on the BASE, you can use the standard lightning connector to sync data with your computer.
