Today only, as part of its Deals of the Day, Best Buy offers the HyperDrive 6-in-1 USB-C Media iPad Hub for $60 shipped. Down from $100 direct from Hyper, today’s deal comes in at $20 below our last mention from October and marks a new all-time low that we’ve tracked. This media hub is perfect for your on-the-go iPad setup. Designed to work with basically all USB-C iPad models, including the 10th generation, Air, and Pro models, you’ll find that it expands your I/O and even acts as a media controller. The dock itself magnetically attaches to the bottom of the side of the iPad or via the USB-C connection on the bottom. There’s front-facing media buttons like play, pause, fast-forward, and rewind. On top of that, you’ll find a 4K60 HDMI port, 60W USB-C port, microSD/SD readers, and a USB-A port as well. Plus, a 3.5mm audio jack is available for you to play media through headphones.

Of course, instead of spending $60 on a multi-port hub and media center, you could pick up a 2-pack of USB-C to USB-A adapters for just $8 at Amazon. Sure, it’s not quite as versatile as a full-fledged dock, but with these adapters being so low-cost, you can just leave them on printer cables, mouse dongles, or anything else around the house to convert older tech to work with USB-C.
Don’t forget to further upgrade your iPad setup with Apple’s 12.9-inch Smart Keyboard Folio. Right now, this keyboard is on sale for $90, while it originally fetched $199. This discount comes in the form of being refurbished, but you’ll still get a 90-day warranty with purchase to protect against any possible defects in workmanship.
