Apple Says More Smart Connector Products Are Coming Soon

According to Fast Company, Apple vendors have products in the pipeline that will use its Smart Connector technology that debuted with the iPad Pro. At this time, only 4 accessories support it: Apple’s Smart Keyboard and 2 keyboards and a docking station made by Logitech. Accessory makers told Fast Company that use of the Smart Connector have been slow because of wait times, high costs for Smart Connector components, and because praised Bluetooth is a better fit, at least for iPad keyboards. The Smart Connector transfers data and power between iPad Pro and compatible accessories. No batteries or charging is required. For instance, when you attach a compatible keyboard, you can immediately start typing. When you remove it, the onscreen keyboard automatically reappears. Thoughts ?
