More complicated than some laptops
Along with the iPad Pro 2020, Apple also showed a Magic Keyboard of 399 Euros. 399 euros! Therefore, accessory keyboards are more expensive than entry-level iPads. Now, iFixit's X-ray shows Apple's internal working principle and tremendous effort.
The technical differences between the new iPad Pro and its immediate predecessor are limited. The reason Apple fans are still not satisfied with the presentation is Magic Keyboard, which is compatible with the new iPad Pro and the 2018 generation. The full-featured keys on the MacBook Pro and the joy of the integrated touchpad for gesture control under iPadOS come with built-in dampers: price.

The repair service iFixit has released X-ray images of the magic keyboard for iPad Pro. Image display…
Juicy apple premium or real engineering?
Apple and cheap-never really combined. It is also reasonable that the cost of Magic Keyboard is higher than the previous keyboards with membrane keys. But does this have to exceed the cost of Apple's entry-level tablet? The repair service iFixit has not released classic keyboard disassembly information, but has released a very interesting Magic Keyboard X-ray. These pictures look very impressive. Convince yourself.
The repair service was surprised by the touchpad. Magic Keyboard is Apple ’s first iPad keyboard with a built-in touchpad. It is very different from what we learned from MacBook.
Apple is also praised for its double hinge construction. At first glance, even iFixit experts do not fully understand how the iPhone inventor implemented this mechanism. "We are very interested in people who have expertise in springs and hinges to understand what it is."
Magnets are everywhere
In order to make the iPad Pro easy to remove from the magic keyboard, but still find a firm grip, Apple used the entire team of magnets. These are mainly located in the notch area of the camera. The disassembly of Magic Keyboard is still in progress, but iFixit is already saying: "This part is more complicated than most laptops."
