Apple will add full trackpad support to all iPads running iPadOS 13.4 on March 24.
A new Magic Keyboard with Trackpad will be available in May starting at US$300 for the 11-inch and US$350 for the 12.9 inch model. No word yet on Canadian pricing, but that’s a lot of money for a keyboard. On the positive side, the new Magic Keyboard with trackpad will work with the 2018 iPad Pro models that you may already own.
This new iPad Pro, with the addition of a physical keyboard, trackpad, and mouse, will mean that most people will not need a MacBook. The new keyboard design will give the iPad Pro more flexibility. It’s approaching the functionality of the Microsoft Surface. And that’s not a bad thing.
Apple today also introduced the new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro. With a floating design with smooth angle adjustment, a backlit keyboard and trackpad, the Magic Keyboard delivers the best typing experience ever on iPad. The Magic Keyboard will be available for purchase in May.
“The new iPad Pro introduces advanced technologies never before available in mobile computing,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Combining the most advanced mobile display with powerful performance, pro cameras, pro audio, the breakthrough LiDAR Scanner and new Magic Keyboard with Trackpad, this is another huge leap forward for iPad. There’s no other device in the world like the new iPad Pro and we think our customers are going to love it.”
“We’re making iPad even more capable and versatile by bringing trackpad support to iPadOS,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “We carefully considered the best way to integrate trackpad use into a touch-first environment while retaining everything our customers know and love about iPad. We’re thrilled to bring this new way of interacting with iPad to the millions of people using iPadOS today.” […]
