One-year Magic Keyboard incompatible with the new iPad Pro

One-year Magic Keyboard incompatible with the new iPad Pro


At a product presentation in March 2020 Apple introduced the Magic Keyboard, an accessory in two sizes (11 and 12.9 inches) with magnetic support, with which an iPad Pro could be transformed into a laptop. At $ 350, the part wasn’t cheap, but it could at least be used with both the 2020 iPad Pro and the 2018 iPad Pro. Well, Apple has introduced a new iPad Pro on Tuesdaywhich no longer fits with the one year old Magic Keyboard.

Refuse another 399 euros

The new iPad Pro is according to The Verge 0.5 millimeters thicker, so it is only compatible with a new Magic Keyboard. So anyone who spent $ 350 a year ago in the justified hope of being able to use it alongside future iPad Pro versions is out of luck and can shell out another $ 350, in Austria even € 399.

New customers with advantage

The French website first discovered the fact iGeneration. The accuracy was later confirmed by experts, writes The Verge. Sea by Ars Technica As a regular iPad Pro customer, you better not have had a magic keyboard before, but now you are buying the current model. This is also compatible with older versions of iPad Pro.
