'Does the iPad have a headphone jack?': Here are the iPad models that have a standard headphone jack
- The latest iPad Pro models do not have a standard headphone jack, meaning you will have to buy a dongle to connect your wired headphones to the USB-C port.
- However, the iPad Air, iPad Mini, and classic iPad still have a standard headphone jack.
- The most recent iPad Pro models also ditch the lightning port, using a USB-C port both for charging and for connecting to other hardware.

If you have a great pair of wired headphones and you're in the market for a new iPad Pro, make sure to add a dongle to your shopping cart.
Both of the most recent iPad Pro models - the 12.9" and 11" options - have ditched the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, instead featuring only a USB-C port.

While the new iPad Air, iPad Mini, and basic iPad still have a headphone jack and a lightning port, it's likely these will be some of the last iPads that features these ports, standard on the Apple tablet for many years.

If you have a new iPad Pro without a headphone jack, the best move is using a set of headphones that can wirelessly pair with the tablet via Bluetooth.
Or you can save money and keep using your wired headphones, and buy a USB-C to 3.5 mm audio adapter, which only costs $10.99.
If you don't want to splurge for a nice pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones, using a dongle to keep your older headphones working may be a good idea, as few USB-C headphones currently on the market have good enough reviews to make them worth the investment.
