The new Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro has all the utility of an ordinary full-size keyboard, but its technology is far from conventional. The entire keyboard is draped with a custom-woven fabric that has been laser ablated to precisely define each key and ensure a satisfyingly fast and natural key feel. Below the surface of Smart Keyboard is a new conductive material. At just 0.1 mm, it is nearly as thin as a piece of paper, yet strong enough to withstand a lifetime of folding. And it’s why you won’t find any batteries, cord or on / off switches with Smart Keyboard.
