Let’s dive it little more about its feature;
The most important function of this keyboard case is the keyboard. The name of this keyboard is Apple Magic which uses the same scissor-switch mechanism just like the previous iMac and 16-inch MacBook Pro. But it isn’t like a butterfly switch keyboard or fabric-covered keyboards which were found on MacBook Pros and iPad Pro before.
The TrackPad is a fairly small good in this Magic Keyboard. Yeah, it’s small just about the 12.9-inch unit, which will be a little uncomfortable for you if you have a habit of using trackpads on MacBook.Although it’s small, it’s so smooth and accurate with a zero lag on iPadOS.Trackpad here lets you click anywhere not just in the bottom or in the middle.
You can use the trackpad not just for clicking, highlighting text or scrolling, its also for navigating the system. You use three fingers to swipe up or left and right to switch between recent applications.
Built Quality and Design
The Apple Magic Keyboard is well designed like a tank. There’s no zero flex to the keyboard deck which makes this very well balanced and stable on your lap.
This balance is also probably from its most unique design element i.e its floating screen. The Ipad doesnt just angle up from the back of keyboard deck like your any other laptop, it’s just floating a little which is quite pretty.
You can pull the screen much closer to your face when you are working from 90 to 130 degrees tilt and with a smooth floating position.
At last, the Apple keyboard seems with an excellent trackpad and someone will have great typing experience using this. However, its thick and heaviness will affect in some way. we hope to see better more functionalities in Apple’s keyboard.
