The only thing we didn’t reinvent was the alphabet.
The new Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro.
For many, a keyboard remains a convenient way to get work done or get thoughts down. The new Smart Keyboard completely reimagines this centuries‑old invention to add even more flexibility to iPad Pro. With new technologies that free you from switches, plugs, and even pairing, the Smart Keyboard is the perfect blend of full‑size utility and outstanding portability.
Easy to use. Even easier to take with you.
Simply unfold the Smart Keyboard when you need it. When you don’t, fold it up and it becomes a slim, lightweight cover for iPad Pro. The elegant design is also durable, so it can withstand everyday use. And your 23rd draft.
Your words matter, so we protect each letter.
The letters and numbers may be the same, but everything else about the Smart Keyboard is completely new. Its top layer is crafted from a sheet of highly durable custom-woven fabric that’s laser ablated to form the shape of each key. The fabric also provides the spring-like tension for each key, eliminating the need for conventional mechanisms. So the Smart Keyboard is just 4 mm thin while providing the accuracy, stability, and satisfying key feel you expect.
Powerful communication.Powered in a brand‑new way.
To make a device as thin and durable as the Smart Keyboard, we couldn’t rely on traditional wires or components. By etching a paper-thin sheet of nylon with metal, we created a unique conductive material that allows for a two-way flow of power and data. So you don’t charge the Smart Keyboard. Attach it to iPad Pro and start typing. And just as important, the conductive material is durable enough to withstand a lifetime of folding and unfolding.
