The new Apple Magic Keyboard cover can turn your iPad Pro 12.9-inch into a mid-size laptop.

Along with their updated iPad Pro 12.9-inch 2021, Apple introduced a very cool and downright essential accessory-a Magic Keyboard for the 5th generation Pro tablets. This small add-on makes it possible to turn your iPad Pro tablet into a laptop computer. The keyboard is exceptionally well made and comfortable to type on, allowing you to work on a tablet more efficiently.

So let’s see what else this Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 12.9-in has to offer.

Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 12.9-inch system requirements

As noted, this keyboard model was created specifically for use with iPad Pro 12.9-inch models. It works with the 3rd, 4th and 5th generation tablet models, with iPadOS 14.5 or higher.

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 12.9-inch design


Some of the most notable features of the recent Apple Magic Keyboard are:

Availability of USB-C port

  • “Floating” design with magnetic attachment
  • Illuminated keys.

Overall, the new Apple Magic Keyboard is a fine premium accessory through and through. A grippy soft-touch material covers the magnetic attachment mechanism, but you can see how strong it is as soon as you open it. In addition, it automatically locks in one position. This allows you to endlessly open and close the keyboard cover without worrying that the grip could lose its firmness.

Another thing is that the Magic Keyboard is quite heavy. The panel is lined with multiple magnets to connect to the iPad Pro and provide that floating feeling. You can attach the keyboard to the tablet cover and smoothly adjust it for an optimal viewing angle. These small magnets are quite powerful, so there is no chance of accidental disconnection. At the same time, it is very easy to turn the keyboard on and off on your iPad Pro.


This Magic Keyboard essentially transforms the iPad into a traditional 13-inch laptop. Plus, it has a decent sized trackpad and scissor-switch keys. So adding a keyboard to your Apple iPad Pro provides a better way of writing emails, taking notes, or pretty much anything you would need a laptop for. And keyboard finishes give you an impression of typing on a MacBook.

The Magic keyboard trackpad is designed for multi-touch gestures and the cursor. It allows you to scroll, click, highlight, switch between the apps so you can multitask more efficiently.

The Magic Keyboard uses a Smart Connector technology to attach directly to the iPad Pro tablet, so Bluetooth pairing is not required. In addition, the Smart Connector charges the keyword, which is very convenient.

Another exciting thing is that the trackpad is explicitly designed to work in iPadOS, changing the way you interact with your Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch tablet.

In terms of size, it is more or less identical to the one that comes on Microsoft Surface Pro models, but the Magic Keyboard trackpad works better, as it allows users to click anywhere within the touch area. Meanwhile, the Surface cover trackpads are only clickable in the middle and at the bottom.

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 12.9-inch price and color options

Although the Magic Keyboard is great, it has some drawbacks, namely, the price and color selection. The recent keyboard model is quite expensive. Apple also allows buyers to make monthly payments for 12 months at 0% APR.

As for color options, it comes in only two versions: black or white. However, many iPad Pro 12.9-inch users expressed a desire to see more fun and bright colors in the future. And we’re there with them: it would be nice to add a little pop of color to your iPad for a more custom look. Especially if you pay so much money for a keyboard, a little more variety wouldn’t hurt.


The Apple Magic Keyboard cover allows iPad Pro users to turn their tablets into laptops with one quick movement, making the work experience much more pleasant and convenient. If you can afford it.
