The new Magic Keyboard with Trackpad was announced in March alongside the 2020 iPad Pro lineup and new trackpad support in iPadOS 13.4. At the time, Apple said the accessory would launch in May. Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 11‑inch Specifications
Though Apple failed to offer a clear timeline for availability, a product listing has appeared on Amazon suggesting a release date of May 30. An identical listing on the U.S. Amazon store states only that the item has not yet been released. Like with the UK site, customers are still able to preorder the accessory.
While the product is currently available to preorder, the date offered by Amazon is likely a placeholder. Retailers sometimes set arbitrary release dates as they await a green light to sales from manufacturers. On the other hand, the Amazon listing marks the first time that a major retailer has given any sort of concrete scheduling details.
The new Magic Keyboards, designed exclusively for 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, feature a trackpad for the first time, but they also sport a unique floating hinge design and backlit keys. They’re priced at $299 for the 11-inch model and $349 for the 12.9-inch model and are compatible with the 2018 iPad Pros.
Alongside the Apple-produced Magic Keyboard, Logitech in March also debuted two new keyboard accessories with trackpads for the 10.2-inch iPad and the 10.5-inch iPad Air. Both of those products are listed as “coming soon” on Logitech’s site, though no firm timeline has been given.
In the meantime, 2020 iPad Pro users will be able to take advantage of full mouse and trackpad support as long as their devices are running iPadOS 13.4. A handful of first- and third-party apps have also been updated to support trackpads and mice.Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 11‑inch Specifications
