When Apple released the new 2020 iPad Pro, they also released a new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro. This news was surprising, because Apple had just released the new Smart Keyboard Folio recently. We have already done a review on the Smart Keyboard Folio, so check that out if you are interested.
The new Magic Keyboard has a lot of features that a lot of iPad users will be very excited about. For the first time ever, an iPad keyboard will feature a trackpad. The trackpad will allow users to be a lot more productive on their iPad, and even use it like a MacBook, or other computer. One of the great things about this keyboard is that it will also be compatible with the 2018 iPad Pro, so you can still get this keyboard even if you don’t want to upgrade and buy the 2020 iPad Pro.
Another feature that apple has added to this keyboard is the Magic Keyboard itself. The old versions of the iPad keyboards have had keys that honestly feel kind of mushy, and not so great to type on. This keyboard is coming with the Magic Keyboard, which Apple has placed on their new MacBook Air, and on last year's model of the iPad Pro. For example, the old keyboard on MacBooks had .7mm of travel, which made them feel kind of mushy, but the Magic Keyboards only have .3mm of travel, which will allow the user to type softer, and more efficiently.
One more cool feature that is on this new case is that there is actually a charging port built into the case. There is a USB-C cable port in the back of the case, where you can charge the case. Because there is a trackpad, and backlit keys in this keyboard, it has to be charged. The cool thing about this charging port is that if you plug it in there, it not only charges the keyboard, but it will also charge your iPad at the same time.
The Magic Keyboard case has one more noticeable difference that makes it stand out from all of Apple’s previous keyboards. The iPad will actually be floating above the keyboard, once the magnets in the iPad connect to the case. It is also adjustable and allows the user to have multiple viewing angles, which is a lot better than just two viewing angles in older keyboards. I am really excited for this keyboard to come out in May. Apple has not released an official date that it will come out, but we will keep you posted when they do. Even though there is not an official release date, Apple has released the prices. The 11 inch version will sell for $299, and the 12.9 inch version will sell for $349. I hope you guys liked this post. If you did, like it and leave a comment.
