I am 99 percent certain I am going to mix it up a bit this time, and get the white Magic Keyboard to pair with the Space Black iPad Pro 13. From what I am seeing, the white holds up better and there is no shiny key caps over time. My only concern is the mismatched color of both.. not a huge deal I guess, but just curious if anyone else is doing this or has done this in the past. If in the past, how did it work out for you?

I have black and white MK (old version) and space grey & silver iPad Pro. Subjectively speaking, it looked weird if the white MK was paired with space grey iPad or vice versa.

I would never get a white keyboard for a device I travel with, but I have seen people put silver iPads in black keyboards and it looks alright to me. I prefer space gray/black colors myself so I am pairing my colors, but I don’t think it looks bad either way.

I checked this out in store today. The IPad Pros looked a lot better when paired with their colour-matched Magic Keyboards imo.

Don’t like the mix and match look for space black iPad with a white/silver keyboard.

I'm getting a silver iPP with a black MKB because Silver was all that was left available for launch day (and I didn't want to shell out for 2TB). I figure if it looks bad, I could just return it and get white.

I went for a mix to keep things interesting. Years down the line I might look for custom wraps to complete the Stormtrooper look.
