Apple's new iPad Pro loses headphone jack, gains optional USB to headphone jack dongle

Apple's new 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro adopt an all new design and bring USB Type C to iOS for the first time. The casualty of this innovation has been the beleaguered headphone jack. Now, the headphone jack has been gone from iPhones for years now and it was just a matter of time before Apple deep sixed the 'legacy' port from its other products. 

For buyer of new iPad Pros, they will have to purchase an optional USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adaptor to connect to wired headsets. What happens if you want to charge your iPad Pro and listen to some music, no dice unless you connect through Bluetooth. Such is the price of progress.
