Apple will launch a stronger, extra premium-feeling iPad Magic Keyboard alongside the iPad Professional subsequent 12 months, in line with Mark Gurman’s newest Energy On e-newsletter for Bloomberg. The keyboard, he experiences, will use an aluminum prime case whereas protecting the smooth materials discovered on the underside of the keyboard now. It would additionally nonetheless have just one USB-C port, he writes.

Gurman notes that the present keyboard is vulnerable to bending and tearing over time, so hopefully an aluminum prime case and the bigger trackpad he wrote about final week will enhance issues, although one wonders about closing it over the iPad’s display screen. The up to date iPad Professional design isn’t coming till subsequent 12 months, so how Apple handles that’s for future us to study.

A hardier Magic Keyboard with an even bigger trackpad will go an extended strategy to making the iPad really feel extra like a laptop computer, and I feel that’s most likely a superb factor. That’s if Apple can really thread the needle of creating applicable software program and {hardware} modifications whereas nonetheless protecting the iPad true to itself, which thus far has appeared like an understandably huge problem. It doesn’t appear to be a shiny new keyboard could make for a greater iPad by itself, although. No less than, it hasn’t thus far.
