There’s rumors of a new iPad Pro coming with four pins which could potentially mean a new Magic Keyboard.. but that’s all speculation.

Well I broke down and got one to try out have 30 days so I can also watch the rumors heck I may just give it an hood 25 day run, return wait until October event and buy again if not updated. I must say it’s odd holding the iPad with out a case seems so small if that makes sense.

So, when you say Magic Keyboard are you talking about the Magic Keyboard, or are you talking about the over priced Magic Keyboard case ?

I’ve been using a regular MK with my iPad pros for years. Bought one and a semi-hard case for the the keyboard ($12, Amazon) to use for travel. My wife stole it, now I’m using an old AA battery MK. They are the same width as the 12.9” iPad Pros.

The over priced iPad one. I actually have come to like it after testing one out for a bit…

I have the magic keyboard case that people think is overpriced. So far I absolutely love it, no reason at all to put fingerprints on the screen any more, has the track pad and back lit keys, plus looks cool with the iPad Pro like just hovering in the air.

I have mixed experience. Mine has been very useful and I really love it. It’s perfect match with the iPP 11” and my needs (writing and do simple office stuff on the road). I also bought for my daughter; she used rarely and she just preferred to use her old MBA. So, for some people, it was worth the money, while for others it’s not the case.

Sounds like pretty much anything. Before I got my 3rd generation 11 inch iPad Pro which has the m1 chip, I never thought I could use an iPad for pretty much 99% of my work, always used them basically to be on forums, personal email, texting, and shopping during working hours and my MacBook Air for actual work. Now with the m1 chip, I can do most of what I am willing to do for a job with it alone.
