The portable design features a full-size keyboard with backlit keys and a scissor mechanism that delivers 1mm travel, offering a comfortable and responsive typing experience, whether working on a lap or on a desk. The click-anywhere trackpad of Magic Keyboard complements the touch-first design of iPad for fluid navigation, easy cursor control, and precise adjustments.

The Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro starts at $299 for the 11-inch model and rises to $349 for those with the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
