So, a change to the Magic Keyboards is forthcoming? To accommodate a change in the iPad Pros?

Apple Pencil 3 ?

That's how I see this.

I hope you're right.

I am looking forward to buying (and holding back) the new 12 inch iPad Pro and I hope they update the Magic Keyboard.The previous gen keyboard was nice but I didn't like how easy it got destroyed and scratched. I hope they replace the materials on it.

Apple Pencil 3 - hopefully adds some finishes, I only wish it wouldn't be so slippery.

M1 I had was insanely fast - M2 along with wireless charging would be a nice welcome that I don't really care for personally.

Pencil 1 is slippery, Pencil 2 is not.

I hoping they don't refresh neither of those, I want the new iPad Pro 11" but don't want to pay for a new keyboard, mine is just fine, look as good as new and payed a lot for it and pencil, it just works.

True. Pencil 2 is less slippery.
But in my in my sweaty hands, I could you something more rubbery.

Wow - This already sounds weird 😂
You could use a little rubber sleeve pencil grip on the Pencil 1, and can't on Pencil 2 if you intend to attach to side of iPad 😅

Well if there's no Apple Pencil 3 - I will check some rubber cases for the Apple Pencil 2
I saw some options for it.

now I am waiting patiently - I don't have any devices yet.

The magic keyboard is a nice accessory, but it is still $150 dollars overpriced, and a horrible battery hog. The keyboard will kill your battery even when not in use.

A 12 inch to replace the current 11"? Is that what is being talked about?

Yup Apple Pencil 2 has been on sale a couple of weeks ago at Best Buy for 99.00. I was going to pull the trigger then, but it went to the regular price. Bought it today

Does this indicate a new Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil are coming? I've held off on both to see what happens.

I did exactly that with both accessories. Purchased series 1 of the Pencil and Keyboard and ended up returning both.

Then I got series 2 of both Pencil and Keyboard, it was a nice deal, the pencil is fantastic, and the battery is still strong after 3 years of use. The keyboard is another story, it really is an overpriced, underfeatured battery hog that does nothing to protect the ipad, I had to return it.

I hope the 3rd iteration comes with better battery management, more protection and an extra fold for better angles.
