Apple’s revamped Magic Keyboard transforms your iPad Pro into a laptop: Mark Gurman

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says Apple has been working on changing its iPad Pro accessories, including the Magic Keyboard। Meanwhile, the tech giant based in Cupertino is expected to unveil two new iPad Pro models with the yet-unreleased M3 chip and OLED screens in 2024। Additionally, there has been speculation that the company is currently working on an improved version of its Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro accessory। iPad Pro’s hardware will likely see its first substantial upgrade in six years।

Mark Gurman noted in September 3rd’s Power On newsletter that Apple is working on a new Magic Keyboard, which will be released next year in conjunction with the company’s new iPad Pro models। Although Gurman said the overhaul will be even more thorough, the upcoming keyboard accessory will apparently have a larger trackpad to make it more Mac-like। For the first time on a Magic Keyboard for iPad, the top case, or the area around the keyboard, will be made of aluminium. This will align with current Mac laptops।

Gurman says the weight difference from changing to aluminium will be tiny। The accessory may cost more if Apple chooses to use costlier materials। The iPad Pro 11-inch with Magic Keyboard currently costs Rs. 29,999, while the 12.9-inch iPad Pro costs Rs. 33,900।

Gurman says that the refreshed Magic Keyboard for iPad will be released along with the 2024 iPad Pro, which is expected to have 11-inch and 13-inch OLED displays, and is expected to be announced in the second half of the year। Gurman stated in his report from last week that Apple is likely to introduce the newer iPad Air or the iPad mini models before the launch of the upcoming iPad Pro model।

According to rumors, the upcoming iPad Pro models, which are internally codenamed J717, J718, J720, and J721, will be powered by the alleged 3nm M3 chipset, which could improve performance and efficiency as compared to the 4nm M2 chipsets found in the current-generation MacBook, iPad, and Mac models।
