New Apple aluminum Magic Keyboard introduces backlit keys & function bar

New Apple aluminum Magic Keyboard introduces backlit keys & multi-touch trackpad

Apple's recent 'Let loose' event showcased the powerful new iPad Pro lineup, and introduced an updated Magic Keyboard with an aluminum body for the first time.

The new Magic keyboard is now available for purchase on Apple's online store. With its integrated trackpad and floating design, the keyboard aims to enhance the user experience by providing laptop-like functionality to the iPad Pro.

The Magic Keyboard features a unique floating cantilever design, which allows the iPad Pro to attach magnetically and hover above the keyboard. The design elevates the device for a better viewing angle and makes it easy to adjust to the user's preferred viewing positions.

The keyboard itself includes backlit keys with a scissor mechanism that delivers 1mm travel for a responsive, comfortable, and quiet typing experience. Furthermore, the keyboard comes with a built-in trackpad.

The trackpad offers precise cursor control and supports multi-touch gestures like swiping and scrolling, enhancing productivity and ease of use. One of the standout features of the Magic Keyboard is its USB-C port, which allows for pass-through charging, freeing up the port on the iPad Pro for other accessories.

The keyboard also features front and back protection for the iPad, which not only enhances its usability but also provides added security for the device.

In terms of compatibility, the Magic Keyboard is designed specifically for the 13-inch iPad Pro M4 model, ensuring a perfect fit and integration with the device's features.

New Magic Keyboard for iPad — Pricing & Availability

The new Magic Keyboard is available starting at $299 for the 11-inch iPad Pro and $349 for the 13-inch model.
