Magic Keyboard – orders opening for new products

Apple added full trackpad support in its recent iPadOS 13.4 update, giving users a new way to interact with their iPads for the first time in ten years. This followed the announcement in March of an all-new Magic Keyboard with a built-in trackpad for the ideal working-on-iPad setup.

Now, four weeks on, Magic Keyboard is finally available to order from a new Keyboard for iPad section of the Apple online store, and will start shipping to customers next week.

Apple’s redesigned keyboard for the iPad Pro

This is great news for anyone who needs a bit more control to get serious work done on the iPad – typing, editing documents, and selecting text will be much easier than ever before. The bad news is that premium Apple accessories don’t come cheap. The new Magic Keyboard retails at $299/£299 for the 11-inch iPad Pro and $349/£349 for the 12.9-inch version.

That’s not the only new product Apple is churning out amidst the current pandemic. If you missed the announcement, there’s an all-new iPhone SE in town offering the same A13 Bionic chip as the iPhone 11 range for just $399/£419. That’s available to pre-order tomorrow (from 5am PDT on April 17) and will ship a week later.
