Dante output to iPad Pro now possible?

I need an lightning adaptor with a camera USB 3 input to accept digital audio from a Zoom U-44. The device I’m using is an iPad Pro. The adapter has to have a second lightning port to charge the iPad at the same time because I’m doing a 7 hour live-stream telethon fundraiser. While looking for this, I found an adapter that also has an RJ-45 ethernet female connection. This got me thinking; could I possibly connect my Dante card in the back of my Yamaha mixing console to this ethernet port? If it’s now possible to record directly into an iPad Pro like this, I’m in hog’s Heaven! A brief search doesn’t show much about the topic. As of July 2019, it appears Apple has opened the doors to this possibility.
