Excerpt: I owe this little trick to Nick Garnett (@nicholasgarnett)’s; his demo on Twitter a few days ago was amazing.

The bits you will need are the adaptor above – a USB3 hub to Ethernet lead – the Anker one he mentions is listed below. A substantial portable battery to power the hub and phone/ iPad through the adaptor. Then you turn off the Airplane Mode and wifi and connect it all up as in the video above.

It saves me trawling mindlessly through Twitter every…
