You can buy the iPad Pro's Magic Keyboard right now, orders start shipping next week


Alongside announcing the 2020 iPad Pro in March, Apple also announced a new keyboard accessory.

The Magic Keyboard brings a backlit keyboard, Apple’s new scissor mechanism, and a built-in trackpad that takes advantage of iPadOS 13.4’s new trackpad support. The keyboard was supposed to launch in May, but Apple announced Wednesday morning that it’s now taking preorders, with deliveries expected to start as soon as next week. 

Orders for the Magic Keyboard wasn’t the only thing Apple announced Wednesday. The company also unveiled the second-generation iPhone SE, which still costs $399 and will be available to order April 17.

The Smart Connector on the back of the iPad Pro is used to power the keyboard, as well as charge the iPad Pro when you use the keyboard’s USB-C port. That leaves the USB-C port on the iPad Pro open to connect accessories. 

I will be using the Magic Keyboard as soon as I can possibly get my hands on one and updating my ongoing review of the 2020 iPad Pro

You can order the Magic Keyboard right now. Delivery estimates are already slipping into May for versions.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
