iPad Pro users deserve the Magic Keyboard experience

Apple first started selling the Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro in April 2020. It is the company’s first keyboard accessory for the iPad lineup with a built-in trackpad. This also helps differentiate it from the Smart Keyboard Folio — the latter only has a keyboard.

The Magic Keyboard has backlit keys with a scissor mechanism. They offer 1 millimeter of travel for better feedback and a more comfortable experience. As for the trackpad, it has gesture support that makes navigating around apps easier.

If you are a pro user who uses the iPad Pro for typing emails and is constantly switching between multiple apps, the Magic Keyboard will significantly improve that experience.

In Cult of Mac‘s review of the Magic Keyboard for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, we found the accessory well worth the additional heft. The official price tag is on the higher side, but Amazon’s deal makes it a bit more affordable.

Don’t miss this deal on the Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro

The Magic Keyboard for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro retails for $349. After the 14% discount from Amazon, you can get it for an attractive price of just $299. Similarly, the 11-inch iPad Pro’s Magic Keyboard is discounted by $50 to a more reasonable $249, down from its MSRP of $299. The $50 discount is applicable on both white and black shades of the accessory.

Apple’s Magic Keyboard for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is compatible with 2018, 2020, and 2021 models. The smaller one meant for the 11-inch iPad Pro works with all three generations of the tablet, along with the 10.9-inch iPad Air 4 and 5.

If you use your iPad Pro as a MacBook, the Magic Keyboard is a must-have accessory. So, make sure to grab this deal before stocks sell out.
