A few days ago, we revealed that the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro was required to purchase a new Magic Keyboard if we were to use a tablet with Apple’s keyboard / trackpad combo. The tablet was difficult to swallow: the device, which is not specifically given (399 € large version), was released last year. Users were entitled to the expectation that it would be compatible with new tablets and upcoming ones.

Damiano moved a few sheets of paper (to simulate the thickness of the new tablet) between his 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the Magic Keyboard, he noticed that the case closed nicely.

Due to the case Bronca faced, Apple specifies in a letter of support (the French version has not yet been updated) that the first-generation Magic Keyboard, which was released in 2020, is finally ” Functionally compatible “With the iPad Pro M1 … due to the slightly thicker dimensions of the new model when adding it (its thickness is 6.4 mm or 0.5 mm more than the previous model),” Magic keyboard may not fit properly when turned off »

Apple states that this will be particularly the case if the screen protector is applied to the iPad. We suspected that these few millimeters of thickness were not meant to completely prohibit all use of the iPad Pro with the old Magic Keyboard, but manufacturers have undoubtedly gone too quickly to disqualify Ring Road directly from the ‘D’ .
