The fifth generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro is slightly thicker due to its new mini-LED display. This has led Apple to introduce an updated Magic Keyboard that better fits the device.
Here's what the company said about compatibility in a support document published today.
The first generation of the Magic Keyboard (A1998) is functionally compatible with the new iPad Pro 12.9-inch (5th generation) with Liquid Retina XDR display. Due to the slightly thicker dimensions of this new iPad Pro, it's possible that the Magic Keyboard may not precisely fit when closed, especially when screen protectors are applied.
The new iPad Pro will be available to pre-order starting tomorrow and is rumored for release on May 21.
