The new iPad Pro is thicker due to the new Liquid Retina XDR display with mini LED technology, which is why it may not be compatible with the previous generation Magic keyboard
April 20th was a big day in the short history of the iPad. At the Spring Loaded event, Apple revealed the new iPad Pro That comes with the brand new M1 processor. The new iPad Pro is available in two screen sizes – 11 “and 12.9” Magic keyboard. However, a report from 9to5Mac points out that the new generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro may not work with the old Magic keyboard. The report cites a French online publication iGeneration as the main source.
The new iPad Pro is about 0.5mm thick, and the report says, “The problem is that the Magic Keyboard grips the tablet pretty tightly after it is closed. Apple didn’t leave an inch of slack as the accessories need to hold the iPad in place and prevent it from falling to the bottom of a bag or worse, the tarmac when you move the device with no other protection. But with that extra half a millimeter on the 2021 generation, that very precise fit might be an issue and the device had to be redesigned. ”
However, Apple makes it clear on its website that the new Magic Keyboard is compatible with the previous generation iPad Pro.
The 9to5Mac report states that “According to the documentation that came with the Apple stores The old Magic Keyboard is not compatible with the great iPad pros of 2021. “The new iPad Pro is thicker because of the new Liquid Retina XDR display with mini LED technology.
In the meantime, this problem doesn’t apply to the 11-inch iPad Pro as it has exactly the same dimensions as the previous generation models.
The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro costs from Rs 99,900 and the Magic Keyboard Rs 31,900. The 11-inch model, on the other hand, starts at Rs 71,900.
