- iOS device charging, such as iPad and iPhone.
- Apple USB SuperDrive
- Apple Keyboard
Previously, the higher power draw devices did not function. The driver makes this possible now.
MPG has verified operation of the Apple USB SuperDrive (burning a DVD) and iPad charging (connecting and updating iOS over that connection).
The iPad is a high power draw device that few USB hubs will charge, and while the TRIPP LITE will charge an iPad on its one special high power port, but it will not function as a data connection (charging only). The CalDigit Thunderbolt station not only charges the iPad, but provides a data connection to the computer.
