Apple’s iPad Pro line is slowly gaining laptop-like features with the introduction of the new 2nd-Gen Magic Keyboard for iPad.

The new Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro was one of the highlights of the iPad Pro 2020’s release a few weeks ago.


One of its biggest features is the trackpad at the bottom. The new iPadOS 13.4 will finally bring cursor support to the iPad line, which will take advantage of the trackpad on this new keyboard case.

What’s more, the case connects magnetically on your iPad. And to provide that MacBook-like experience, the iPad floats thanks to its “floating cantilever design”. It lets you adjust the angles easily, just like what you can do on the Mac Pro Display XDR.


Once mounted, you can use the USB Type-C port on the hinge of the case to charge it. No need to disturb the floating iPad.

The keys themselves are backlit and have a scissor mechanism with 1mm travel. That’s identical to the keyboard that newer MacBook has, including the 16-inch MacBook Pro.


But the question is, will the new Apple Magic Keyboard with trackpad work on your iPad? Check the list below.
