New 12.9-inch iPad Pro Not Compatible With Older Magic Keyboard [Report]

The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro is not compatible with older Magic Keyboards, according to a report from iGeneration. Customers will need to purchase a new model of the Magic Keyboard that will soon be available from Apple.

It appears the compatibility issue is the extra thickness picked up by the fifth generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro alongside its new Liquid Retina XDR display. The new tablet is 6.4mm thick compared to 5.9mm for the fourth generation.

The problem is, once closed, the Magic Keyboard squeezes the tablet pretty tight. Apple has not left a millimeter of leeway, because the accessory must hold the iPad in place and prevent it from falling to the bottom of a bag or worse, on the asphalt if you move the set without other protection. But with that extra half a millimeter on the 2021 generation, maybe this very precise fit is a problem and the device had to be revised.

This is unfortunately for those who were hoping to use their older Magic Keyboards with the new iPad Pro. The problem does not appear to affect those who purchase the new 11-inch iPad Pro as that model does not get a mini-LED display or increase in thickness.
