The iPad Pro has evolved over the past few years and has become one of the most versatile devices you can own. With the launch of iPadOS 17 improving Stage Manager for true multitasking on the horizon and Apple launchings its pro apps - Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro - to iPad, the iPad Pro can finally become your only computer. To get a desktop-like experience with your iPad Pro, you need a stand that can match its versatility. We have been using the PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand for the past month, and in this review, we will show you why it’s one of the best iPad Pro stands you can buy.

PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand: design and build quality

PITAKA is known for producing quality products, and the PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand is no different. Crafted with zinc alloy, aluminum alloy, and aramid fiber, the stand looks premium and sturdy. Available in two beautiful colors, Black and White Marble, the PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand can complement any desk setup. It features a minimal design and offers the perfect height for the best ergonomic workflow. Rest assured, once you take the stand out of the box, assemble it in a minute, and place it on your desk, you will love the way it adds to your desk aesthetics.

PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand: the magnet magic

The PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand uses magnets to attach to your iPad Pro. The magnetic strength is good enough to hold even the bigger 12.9-inch iPad Pro. When you bring the iPad Pro closer to the stand, the strong magnetic force auto-aligns the iPad for a secure connection. Note that you will need to buy a PITAKA MagEZ Case Pro (for wireless charging) for this to work, as the iPad Pro itself doesn’t have magnets in the center.

The best part about this magnetic connection is that you can easily attach and detach your iPad Pro from the stand, making it easier to use the tablet in desk and tablet modes. You can attach your iPad Pro in both portrait and landscape orientation, and thanks to its 360-degree rotatable hinge, you can easily switch between both viewing modes without taking off your iPad Pro.

What we love most about the magnetic connection is that it gives the iPad Pro a floating look when attached to the stand, which is quite pleasing to the eyes. The magnetic connection of the PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand and iPad Pro makes it feel like magic, and we are sure you will enjoy this aspect of the stand.

You can also use the stand without the MagEZ Case Pro (with a magnetic sticker) if you don't care about the wireless charging.

PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand: wirelessly charge your iPad Pro

The PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand can wirelessly charge your iPad Pro, provided you put the MagEZ Pro case on your iPad Pro. The PITAKA MagEZ Case Pro for the iPad Pro is an ultra-slim and lightweight case that has a built-in magnetic wireless charging pad that connects to the stand. The case has a USB-C connector that attaches to the iPad Pro charging port to deliver power.

That means you can work on the iPad Pro all day without worrying about the battery life. Thanks to the wireless connection, you won’t have to deal with any dangling wires. The best part about the PITAKA MagEZ Case Pro is that it is a Magic Keyboard compatible case. It means you don’t have to take off the case when you attach it to Apple’s Magic Keyboard.

The case also provides ample protection and ensures your iPad is never naked. It can easily thwart scratches and scuffs and handle minor drops and impacts. The combination allows for a seamless transition between desk mode (with MagEZ stand), tablet mode, and laptop mode (with Magic Keyboard).

The MagEZ Stand also has a built-in wireless charging pad at the base that delivers 7.5W wireless charging for iPhones and 5W wireless charging for AirPods. So you can charge your iPad Pro, iPhone, and AirPods Pro wirelessly with this one device. The iPhone wireless charging can be a little finicky if you use a thick case as you have to get the placement just right. However, with case-less or slim cases, we had no issues.

PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand: ergonomics and usability

We also love the ergonomics of the PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand. The stand is of the perfect height and puts the iPad Pro directly at the eye-level, thus reducing strain on the eyes or the neck. The mount features 360-degree rotation, allowing you to use your iPad Pro in landscape and portrait orientations. You can also adjust the tilt between -5 and +32.5 degrees to get the perfect viewing angle. With the PITAKA MagEZ Charging Stand, you can work long hours without tiring.
