Apart from the Apple Pencil, one of the other unique accessories for the iPad Pro is its Smart Keyboard cover. This is basically a keyboard that doubles as a cover that to a certain extent transforms your iPad into a pseudo laptop of sorts. Now it looks like Apple has since introduced a brand new Smart Keyboard cover that was announced alongside its new iPad Pros.


The new Smart Keyboard has been slightly redesigned in terms of its functionality. Previously the Smart Keyboard only offered users one angle, but the new Smart Cover will offer users two different angles to choose from. One angle has been designed for use of the tablet on your lap, while the other has been designed in the event that you use the tablet and the keyboard cover on a desk.

Similar to its predecessor, the new Smart Keyboard will pair quickly and seamlessly with the iPads and will attach to the iPad using magnets. Apple has not mentioned anything about changing the keyboard mechanism so for those who aren’t a fan of the current Smart Keyboard, it doesn’t seem like anything has changed.

In terms of pricing and availability, the 11-inch Smart Keyboard Folio will be priced at $179, while the 12.9-inch Smart Keyboard Folio will be available for $199.
