    I am going to say more than likely not. The new Apple pencil wont work with the 10.5 inch, so I dont see Apple making the new keyboard work with the 10.5 inch ipad pro.

    I don’t see why it wouldn’t. The new pro has the same footprint as the old one and the smart connector is in the same place.

    No, the Smart Connector is in a completely different place, plus the ‘old’ iPad had curved sides and the new models have flat sides.

    None of the old attachments will work.
