Just a few hours ago Apple renewed the Pro range of the iPad and the Air range of the current Macbooks. Hand in hand with the new 2020 iPad Pro has come an accessory for him that has caught almost as much attention as the iPad itself: a Magic Keyboard with integrated trackpad, which in addition to being compatible with the new generation will also be compatible with the iPad Pro released in 2018.
This new keyboard, which maintains a form factor very similar to that of the previous Smart Folio Keyboard, comes loaded with news. The most notable are the inclusion of a scissor keyboard with 1mm travel, a trackpad, an additional USB-C port for charging and that leaves the iPad literally floating on top of it. In addition, the keyboard is adjustable to a viewing angle of 130 and includes backlit keys.

The great news that this keyboard brings under the arm, apart from all its novelties, is the backward compatibility. And it is possible to use it with 100% of the functions of the current iPad Pro released in 2018. This makes a lot of sense given the capacity of these devices, remaining the most powerful of the products with iOS and iPadOS until today, and that now they are going to expand their possibilities enormously with this new accessory.
As for the price, the new keyboards will be produced in 11 and 12.9 inch format and will be priced at 339.00 and 399.00 respectively. Regarding availability, despite the fact that the new iPad s that already have a release date, the new keyboards will have to wait a bit to see the light.
Now It only remains to wait for Apple to release the corresponding update that includes the compatibility of the 2018 iPad Pro with these keyboards, which we assume will do with the update that has already announced to be released on March 24.
