Build and Design
The Apple Magic Keyboard is a membrane keyboard with an excellent scissor design. The keys require your finger to apply just over 60 grams of force, which is not the lightest but still operates smoothly.
The size of the keyboard remains unchanged at 4.5 x 0.4 x 16.4 inches but there are welcome improvements in the keyboard’s design that make it more stable when on your lap. The iPad Pro is supported by a cool magnetic mount. It can be positioned at 2 angles, depending on your needs and preferences. The keyboard’s second hinge lets you move the iPad into various viewing positions, including a more upright position to type on its virtual keyboard without having to do so on your lap.
With this case, you can charge your iPad Pro while still using the USB-C port for other accessories, such as a hub.
The keyboard backlight can be controlled with a sensor on the iPad Pro to intelligently adjust the brightness depending on your surroundings. You can adjust this manually too in case you feel like it’s not bright enough – it’s located in the settings.
- Tap Settings > > General >> Keyboard
- Tap Hardware Keyboard
- Tap on the Keyboard Brightness slider
- Adjust accordingly
The keys on the keyboard are comfortable to type on. Each key has 1mm of travel and provides a precise response as you press it – this means you’re able to type full-speed without much practice. The keyboard is backlit in dim light and has a resistant design for both your desk & lap. The trackpad looks small on photos, but it’s surprisingly responsive and you’ll get used to it quickly.
The trackpad also works really well and it is straightforward to use. Sometimes using a stylus or tapping the screen doesn’t work either. This is most likely an issue with the application rather than the iPad as a whole, although this can make it tougher when browsing for difficult-to-reach items on small screens.
The new sensor sends encrypted fingerprint data to the M1 chip. It allows you to unlock your Mac, authorize downloads from the iTunes Store, App Store, or Apple Books, and autofill passwords. With Touch ID, you can quickly switch between accounts. This is a good option if the Mac is the family computer. You can store up to three fingerprints at once.
