Yes, it is possible to do your computing on an iPad. But if you take that option, you want to have an attached keyboard. The on-screen keyboard just won’t cut it. You can’t do much butter to match up to an iPad than the Apple Magic Keyboard for 11″ iPad Pro. It was specifically built for use with an iPad Pro, and its responsiveness feels great in your hands. You’re not left out if you have an iPad Air, though, as it will fit equally well.
The addition of this keyboard with trackpad support transforms an iPad Pro into a laptop. It promises the best typing experience for an iPad, and that is backed up in our iPad keyboard recommendations as well. As anyone who has had a tablet can tell you, typing on one can be a real chore. But once you add trackpad support and a keyboard, you’ll glide through all of your typing and navigation.
The Apple Magic Keyboard includes a new floating cantilever design that attaches to an iPad Pro magnetically. It allows you to adjust the tablet to just your perfect sight level, which is where it improves on a typical laptop design.
With USB-C pass-through charging, it keeps the USB-C port on the iPad Pro available for your accessories, including external drives and displays, as well as a recharge from a portable battery. When the Magic Keyboard is attached and closed, the iPad Pro microphones disconnect for privacy to make you feel much safer.
The keyboard features a full-size keyboard with backlit keys and a scissor mechanism with 1mm travel. The click-anywhere trackpad provides fluid navigation and cursor control and allows precise adjustments. It’s the same Apple keyboard layout you’re used to.
