Apple has just announced the 2020 iPad Pro lineup alongside the Magic Keyboard and full trackpad support in iPadOS 13.4. In the press notes, the company confirms that iPadOS 13.4 will be released on March 24.
While not mentioned, it is likely that iOS 13.4 will also be released to the public on the same day. Additionally, the company has also confirmed that iPadOS 13.4 will bring trackpad support for all older iPads compatible with it. Mice support will also be available with a third-party mouse connected over Bluetooth or USB to the tablet.
Apple has also announced an update for its iWork suite — Pages, Numbers, and Keynote — so that they take full advantage of the trackpad support for all iPads running iPadOS 13.4. The company says this will make writing and editing texts and working with multiple objects easier. Pages and Keynote will also gain new templates along with native iCloud Folder Sharing support.
If you are eyeing the Magic Keyboard which comes with a built-in trackpad, you will have to wait until May as it won’t go on sale before that. The good thing is that the Magic Keyboard will also be compatible with the 2018 iPad Pro lineup, though other iPads are not supported. It is priced at $299 and $349 for the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPads, respectively. It includes a full-sized scissor-style switch keyboard with backlit keys and a trackpad. Apple will be offering the keyboard with layouts for up to 30 different languages.
