One of the most amazing features of Prime Day deals, is that a discount on one piece of tech, like the this Magic Keyboard for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (it was $ 349 and now it’s down to $ 330) can open up an entire world of opportunity. Attaching this Magic Keyboard to your 12.9-inch iPad Pro allows you to jump into an entirely different, wider, wonderful world of computing. Just like that, and for less.
Many of us love the idea of bridging the gap between a laptop and a tablet. Both of them are so perfectly convenient in their own way, but neither can quite make up for the other’s shortcomings. Enter Apple’s Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro 12.9. It brings us closer than we’ve ever been to the iPad-as-laptop configuration.
When Apple launched the new Magic Keyboard, they updated the trackpad, so that you can use your iPad Pro in a whole new way. It’s smaller than the trackpad on your average MacBook, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less functional. The scrolling response is lightning quick and your two-and-three-fingered swipes and scrolls are followed with precision. And it’s clickable, which opens up even more functionality with your iPad Pro.
As for the keyboard (which works best on a flat surface, like your desk, as opposed to your lap), the backlit function is superbly helpful and not at all distracting. The keys have a satisfying snap motion when they’re pressed and it’s intelligently spaced in terms of how your fingers will want to travel it. It’s missing some of the supplementary keys you’re used to on MacBook, like volume and brightness, but you’ll barely notice them and their absence won’t affect your work, play, or communication, in the slightest.
As we’re looking to spend more than ever at home, iPads are becoming new office go-to’s. Applying a Magic Keyboard lets you take your iPad Pro, and therefore your office machine, anywhere. It’s the ultimate level of hybrid functionality, and it can be yours, this Prime Day, for. It’s down to $ 330 from its regular price of $ 349.
