IPadOS support

To improve the performance of my WD Mypassport wireless Pro I have tried to attach the Disk by cable to the iPad.
Although the WD has internal power support it is not usable.
iPad shows the error: Device needs too much power.
I know I can use a powered USB hub but would obviously prefer to avoid this.
Is there a plan for a firmware update or another means of support?

Hi DRAKS1000,

In order to improve the performance of the WD My Passport Wireless Pro device, it is recommended to keep the firmware updated.
