Apple could bring the iPad Pro’s Magic Keyboard to other iPad models, or at least that’s the suggestion of an increasingly reliable Twitter account L0vetodream.
The Magic Keyboard is available for Apple’s latest 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It’s also backwards compatible with both Apple’s 2018 âiPad Proâ models, the 12.9-inch iPad Proââ (3rd generation) and the 11-inch ââiPad Proââ (1st generation), but right now that’s it.
The leaker hasn’t named any âiPadâ model, but Apple is reportedly working on a new iPad Air based on the 11-inch âiPad Proâ, which could be a candidate for a Magic Keyboard.
The fourth-generation iPad Airâ may have a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port, according to a report. Apple switched to USB-C for its âiPad Proâ models in 2018, but other iPads continued to feature a Lightning port for charging purposes.
Rumors earlier this year suggested that Apple was working on an 11-inch iPadââ Air, which could launch in the second half of 2020. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently said that Apple is working on an ââiPadââ from 10.8 inches, and while it doesn’t say it was an âAirâ model, it does match other rumors about a new ââiPadââ Air.
An earlier rumor from L0vetodream indicated that the upcoming âiPad Airâ may feature a mini LED display with a subscreen version of Touch ID instead of Face ID, but we have yet to hear the same from other sources.

The Magic Keyboard magnetically attaches to ââiPad Proââ and features a floating design that works on the lap or desk, and a built-in trackpad to control an on-screen pointer, allowing users to improve their workflows.
It features USB-C charging and cantilever hinges for smooth viewing angle adjustments up to 130 degrees, including a full-size keyboard with backlit keys and a sliding mechanism. scissors that offers a stroke of 1 mm.
When Apple unveiled new âiPad Proâ models and the Magic Keyboard with trackpad, Logitech also introduced keyboard cases with trackpads designed for the 10.2-inch 7th-generation iPadâ and 10.5-inch iPadââ Air. . If there is any substance to the latest rumor, they may soon have competition from Apple.
