Apple has decided to bring one feature of its latest Macbooks to the 2020 iPad Pro. We no longer talk about the Magic Keyboard and the new compatibility of mice and keyboards, if not one about security. The new iPad Pro is able to connect its microphone, thus preventing them from being used to test our pills.
This feature, as we mentioned, is not new, and the fact that Macbooks released from 2018 onwards still has some thanks to the T2 chip. In the case of Macbooks, Hardware disconnect occurs when we close the computer cover

This way, if we use a case that covers the screen of our device, when we close it leaves the screen automatically covered and the iPad will continue to take out its microphone
This new feature has been unveiled by those of Copertino through Apple Platform Security, where it shows that:
IPad models from 2020 also include a hardware microphone disconnect. When a compatible MFi case (including one sold by Apple) is used with the iPad and the microphone is turned off, it is disconnected with Hardware, to prevent the audio sent by the microphone from being detected on any software. Either Root or Kernel rights to IPOSOS or if the firmware is corrupted.
Without a doubt, the good news is adding security integration to our devices, and that seems to be indicated by what Apple describes it will be expanded across the iPad announced from now on.
