Apple is set to release a significant upgrade to its Magic Keyboard, specifically designed for the upcoming OLED iPad Pro.

Apple to upgrade Magic Keyboard with new premium design, larger trackpad, and improved typing experience

Beyond the design enhancements, rumors swirl around a significantly larger trackpad, promising precise cursor control and smoother navigation, further blurring the lines between a laptop and the iPad Pro. As reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman:

Something else coming with the new iPad Pro, I’m told, is a revamped Magic Keyboard. The new accessory makes the iPad Pro look even more like a laptop than the current setup and adds a larger trackpad.”

The unveiling of the redesigned Magic Keyboard is scheduled for March 2024, alongside the OLED iPad Pro and third-generation Apple Pencil. While pricing remains unconfirmed, reports indicate a potential starting price of $1,800 for the OLED iPad Pro, suggesting a premium price tag for the Magic Keyboard that reflects its elevated stature within the iPad Pro ecosystem.

This combination of hardware advancements and design refinements positions the iPad Pro as a formidable competitor to Apple’s silicon MacBooks. The combination of portability, iPad Pro integration, and the newly enhanced Magic Keyboard presents a compelling alternative for creators and professionals who seek a powerful and versatile mobile workstation.

The unveiling of the redesigned Magic Keyboard is not the only exciting news for iPad Pro users. Apple is also gearing up to unveil the third generation of the Apple Pencil. Featuring a USB-C connection, similar to the latest low-end Apple Pencil, the Apple Pencil 3 is set to offer faster charging and improved connectivity. In addition to this, it is expected to offer new features and functionalities that will complement the capabilities of the upcoming OLED iPad Pro models.
