Apple still hasn’t given an official launch date for the new Magic Keyboard that brings the iPad Pro closer to being a PC-replacement than it’s ever been, but Amazon’s UK site may have spilled the beans Tuesday with an update to its Magic Keyboard page.

Amazon’s pre-order page for the Magic Keyboard says the “item will be released on May 30, 2020.” Apple still hasn’t given a launch date on its store page for the keyboard.

When Apple revealed the iPad Pro in March it said the keyboard would be available in May. The current product page though doesn’t make any mention of a launch window. Production issues in China from the COVID-19 pandemic may cause Apple to have limited supplies whenever the keyboard launches.

The new Magic Keyboard packs backlit keys and a trackpad. Using a new set of trackpad gestures, the keyboard provides a whole new way to interact with apps. Best of all, the keyboard is backward compatible with any iPad Pro that has a USB-C port and has a USB-C port of its own for charging.

Pricing for the Magic Pro keyboard starts at $299 for the 11-inch iPad Pro and $349 for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro model.
