Set to launch in January 2022, the Pro Hub Mini is equipped with USB 4, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB-A ports, a USB-C port, and a handy 3.5mm audio jack. The hub slots in by using the MacBook Pro's two USB-C ports and audio jack, but users get more ports and power in return.
The USB 4 port supports 6K displays at 60Hz, up to 96W power delivery, and up to 40Gbps data transfer speeds, while the USB-C and USB-A ports deliver 5Gbps transfer speeds. The latest MacBook Pro models already offer an HDMI port, an SD card reader, and a Thunderbolt 4 port, but the Pro Hub Mini brings extra connectivity options.
