Apple’s New Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Shakes Things Up

I have wanted Apple to go all out and give us their version of a standard laptop keyboard for the iPad Pro for a while now. Even if you like the Smart Keyboard and Smart Keyboard Folio, they aren’t what I’m talking about. Those were thin, light and mobile at the expense of all else. You know, things like backlit keys. Or a key mechanism. ANY key mechanism at all.

Both models are available for preorder today, with the 11″ model starting at $799 and the 12.9″ version at $999.

Ming-Chi Kuo Predicts Two Additional Mini-LED iPads for 2020 and 2021

This along with two more iPads and two more Macs

Last Fall, Ming-Chi Kuo made a prediction that Apple was developing a new 16″ MacBook Pro and a new 12.9″ iPad Pro for release in the Fall of 2020. Now he is back (via MacRumors) with a new report that Apple will have four additional devices to go with these, including two additional iPad models.

Apple May be Adding a Trackpad to the Smart Keyboard- Called It!

I will be the first to admit that I don’t have a great track record with predictions. That’s probably because I tend to swing for the fence a lot. No guts, no glory, right? Well, that philosophy leads to a fair amount of strikeouts. However, it will also net you some home runs, as well.

I can’t help but feel like I got one thanks to yesterday’s report from The Information that Apple will be adding a trackpad to the Smart Keyboard. Before getting into the details of that, let’s check the tape for a moment.

There Are Fresh Mini-LED iPad Pro Rumors

I have a feeling I’m going to end up eating my words.

So I have been pretty adamant that, short of splitting up iPad Pro sizes across several months, or creating an additional model, there is NO WAY that Apple would release upgraded iPad Pros twice in one year. However, despite my skepticism, the evidence that another iPad Pro is slated for a Fall release just keeps mounting.

A Spring iPad Pro Really is in the Air

A few days ago, I wrote the following:

There’s no way to know if the early or late rumors are correct yet, but if we don’t start seeing some actual hardware leaks soon, you can pretty much rule out early. And like I said before, don’t expect two Pro releases in one product year.

Well, it looks like that supply chain information pointing to a Spring iPad Pro update is now starting to come in.

Abandonware is One of the Most Difficult Problems Facing the iPad Pro

The iPad Pro has some limitations when you compare it to a traditional laptop with a touchscreen and pen compatibility. I think any fan of the device who’s honest with themselves understands that. There are fewer of them than there used to be thanks to Apple’s efforts to beef up the iPad on the software side over the last three years. The release of iPadOS this summer was a another big step in this process, freeing the iPad from the hardware and software schedule of the iPhone.

A New 12.9″ iPad Pro Rumor is Making the Rounds

Ming-Chi Kuo has a new report that clarifies some previous information he released back in October. In that previous note, he predicted that Apple would release new iPad Pros with new Mini-LED displays in the Fall of 2020 with a new MacBook coming the following year. Now he saying that it will be the 12.9″ Pro alone that gets a Mini-LED display in the third quarter of next year.

New iPad Pros: The Sound of Silence

A month or so ago, a small refresh of the iPad Pro in 2019 seemed like a given. So did an October event covering several rumored Apple products. However, as we prepare to close out the month next week, the time for invitations to such an event has come and gone with no news. Continue reading
