Apple recently released the new Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro, and the author had the opportunity to compare it with the previous-generation model. The new Magic Keyboard features an aluminum palm rest, giving it a more premium look and feel compared to the neoprene palm rest of the previous model. The upgrade in materials instantly makes the new Magic Keyboard stand out as a high-quality accessory.

One of the key differences between the two models is the better use of real estate on the newer Magic Keyboard. Despite the 13-inch Magic Keyboard technically having more space, Apple used the opportunity to add a larger trackpad and shift the keyboard slightly towards the hinge. This results in a vastly improved palm rest that allows for a more comfortable typing experience similar to using a MacBook Pro.

The 13-inch Magic Keyboard retains the same scissor switches for typing, providing a functional but slightly mushy typing experience. However, the addition of a new row of function keys on the new model offers convenient controls for brightness, volume, and media control, enhancing the overall user experience. The synergy with other Apple computing devices adds a practical touch to the Magic Keyboard.

The new Magic Keyboard also features a more aggressive default viewing angle compared to the previous generation, although users have the option to adjust it as needed. The redesigned hinge and magnets provide a sleek and modern look to the overall design, giving off a more laptop-like vibe. Despite not being able to fully test the new Magic Keyboard with an iPad Pro, the author believes it will offer a seamless and hassle-free experience.

Overall, the author concludes that the new Magic Keyboard is a premium accessory that justifies its price tag. Unlike previous generations that may have underwhelmed in terms of features and performance, the new Magic Keyboard stands out as a top choice for iPad Pro users looking for a high-quality keyboard case. With impeccable materials, a smart and functional design, and seamless compatibility with the iPad Pro, the new Magic Keyboard is a worthwhile investment for those seeking the best portable keyboard case for their device.
