Starting with the smaller iPad, you can get the Smart Keyboard (English) for the 8th generation 2020 iPad at $114.97, down from $159.00. This accessory is shipped and sold by Amazon, and it's in stock today.



This Smart Keyboard is compatible with the 8th generation 10.2-inch iPad, 7th generation iPad, 3rd generation iPad Air, and 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The keyboard connects via Smart Connector to compatible iPads, and when folded it provides protection to the iPad's display.

Secondly, there's the Magic Keyboard for 12.9-inch iPad Pro at Best Buy, priced at $199.00, down from $349.00. This is the 2020 model of the Magic Keyboard, and it's a match of the all-time low price on this accessory, available only at Best Buy.



The Magic Keyboard includes a trackpad, USB-C port for charging, backlit keys, and front and back protection for the iPad Pro. The accessory is compatible with the third and fourth generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro is functionally compatible with the 2020 Magic Keyboard, but because 2021 iPad Pro tablets are slightly thicker, it may not fit quite as well.

The 12.9 magic keyboard is mind blowingly good. If you have only used older iPad keyboards than you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Agreed, but I have to say I feel like the white model is worth it over the black, and that one *isn't* $199 right now.

I want to buy one for my iPad Pro 11' 2018 but also plan to buy the next iPad Pro 11 next year when it releases and I'm afraid the keyboard won't work with next year model if there are significant changes in design.
Selling the keyboard later doesn't sound like a good option giving the country I'm located.
Man, tough decision.
Edit: Nevermind, I'm idiot, the sale only applies to the 12".

So, this is wildly unrelated, but I woke up this morning wondering why I can't get a MacBook that opens like this. Literally, that's what I woke up thinking. STG.

Wouldn't it be nice if the screen was slightly higher than the tabletop? How difficult would stuff have to get to make this happen? Ribbon cable through 2 hinge-like places might be dicey but that small elevation would be really nice without having to sit the whole MBA on a stack of books to use. At this point that's basically what the iPad Pro is with the keyboard, right?

Anybody else think so? There must be talented people who can do cool mockups of this idea...
