Problems connecting a 2021 iPad Pro to an iRig Pro audio interface

I have an iRig Pro audio interface, which shipped with two cables: MINI Din to lightning and MINI Din to USB. I also have the power supply for the iRig, which means that my old 6th gen iPad was charging when connected to the iRig.

Recently I purchased a 2021 iPad Pro, which uses USB-C. Bought a cheap (€3) USB to USB-C adapter to attach to the cable that came with the iRig. This worked in that audio was flowing from my mic/guitar to the iRig, and I could monitor through headphones connected to it, but the new iPad was not charging. 

Therefore, I contacted Thomann who advised that IK (who make the iRig) have a new MINI Din to USB-C lead - cost including shipping from Germany to Spain a whopping €50. C'est la vie, I thought, I have to have it - it arrived yesterday. Result - exactly as per the €3 adapter adapter - audio, but no charge reaching the new iPad Pro. 

Currently awaiting a response from Thomann. 

Anyone else had problems connecting an iRig to a new iPad Pro?
