Apple’s new 12.9-inch iPad Pro has a big catch. It turns out that the new 2021 model is incompatible with the old Magic Keyboard folio case for the 2018 and 2020 models.
That means if you are looking to upgrade from a 2018 or 2020 12.9-inch iPad Pro to the refreshed model (with its Mini LED display, faster M1 processor, and upgraded camera), you will also have to spend $349 for a new Magic Keyboard case, even if you already bought the prior version.
- The next-generation iPad Pro supports 5G, has an M1 chip and a better battery
- Despite the shortage, the next iPad Pro could appear in April
- iOS 15 could have revamped notifications, iPadOS 15 changes the home screen
The good news is that the new 2021 Magic Keyboard case is compatible with the previous 2018 and 2020 iterations of the iPad Pro, so if you end up buying the new model, you will be able to use it with older iPads.
