Apple’s new Magic Keyboard has arrived for the iPad Pro, and while it doesn’t come cheap, there’s actually quite a bit of innovative technology you’re getting in this latest keyboard accessory, which takes iPad computing to a whole new level.
It was actually 10 years ago this month that Apple released its first iPad, so it’s perhaps fitting that on this, the anniversary of the iPad, Apple’s Magic Keyboard is the fulfillment of the vision of being able to use the iPad as a true laptop replacement, at least in terms of the general user experience.
To be clear, the Magic Keyboard is not a rehash of Apple’s Smart Keyboard folio or cover accessories, which the company has been offering for years for various iPad models. The Magic Keyboard is something completely different that breaks entirely new ground. The price tag is high, but if you plan on using your iPad Pro to do any serious work, I think it’s well worth it. In fact, it goes without saying that like many others who have commented on the Magic Keyboard, I’m writing this entire post in Ulysses using the Magic Keyboard on my 2020 iPad Pro.
