In 2020, Apple released Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro. One of the key features of the keyboard was the appearance. The accessory literally keeps the tablet on the weight. However, judging by one of Apple’s patent applications, the company was considering other options. And they should be better at holding heavy and large tablets.
A distinctive feature of the Magic Keyboard alternative design for iPad is the movable keyboard block. It can move back and forth relative to the cover of the case. This will change the angle of the tablet. The increased bottom plane will have a positive effect on the stability of the device.
It is difficult to say whether Apple will release an accessory with a similar design. It doesn’t have the same “wow” effect as the current Magic Keyboard for iPad. It is possible that the company simply registered a patent with an alternative keyboard cover design so that other manufacturers could not use such an idea.
However, there is a chance that Apple will still apply the patented design. The company is rumored to be considering releasing iPads with screens larger than 14 inches. A large base and comfortable stand will securely hold even the heaviest tablets.
