iFixit has disassembled the trackpad on Apple's new Magic Keyboard for iPad, giving us a better look at how it works.

What looks like multiple buttons in the X-ray is actually just one button and a simple, elegant lever system. The single button is at the center of the trackpad, where the mechanism is rigid. When you apply pressure near the center, whether top, middle, or bottom-center, you are directly pressing the button. Press near the top, bottom, or one of the corners, however, and the lever system comes into play, forcing the contact plate in the center upward to make a click happen.

The site notes that the trackpad is the only part of the Magic Keyboard that can be dissassembled without major destruction to the accessory.

The Magic Keyboard for iPad can be purchased now for $249 (11-inch) and $349 (12.9-inch).
