Apple Opens Preorders for New iPad Pro Smart Keyboard Folio and Smart Folio Cases

The new Smart Keyboard Folio for the 2018 iPad Pro

Apple announced the new 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro earlier today. The new devices are already up for preorder, as is the new Apple Pencil to go along with the new tablets. And now so are the folio cases for both models.

You can preorder the new Smart Keyboard Folio and Smart Folio case options beginning right now. Each model of the 2018 iPad Pro has its own accessory option, with price changing depending on the size of the tablet you have. The Smart Keyboard Folio, which protects the front of the tablet when closed, along with the back at all times and offers a full-size keyboard, is available in one color and is priced at $179.00 for the 11-inch iPad Pro.

The Smart Keyboard Folio (pictured at the top of this article) for the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro (3rd Generation) is priced at $199.00 and only comes in one color as well. Both of the Smart Keyboard Folios offer support for U.S. English, Arabic, British English, Chinese (Pinyin), Danish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Swiss, Traditional Chinese (Cangjie & Zhuyin), and Spanish.

Apple's new Smart Folio case for the 2018 iPad Pro

If you don’t prefer the keyboard accessory, you can also opt for the Smart Folio case. This still protects the back of the 11- or 12.9-inch iPad Pro at all times, and will protect the display when it’s closed. It also offers “open-to-wake and close-to-sleep functionality” (which is also available for the Smart Keyboard Folio as well).

The Smart Folio Case for the 11-inch iPad Pro is available in Charcoal, Pink Sand, and White. It’s priced at $79.00. Meanwhile, the same case for the 12.9-inch variant is priced at $99.00 and only available in Charcoal and White. The new folio cases will arrive as quickly as Thursday, November 1, if you order fastest delivery. Free delivery sees the accessories arriving Friday, November 2 — a few days before the new iPad Pro launches.

The Smart Keyboard Folio for the 11-inch iPad Pro is priced at $179.00, while the model for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro costs $199.00. Both models will deliver by Wednesday, November 7 (the same day the iPad Pro itself launches).
