The Smart Keyboard combines an array of new technologies and materials to create a keyboard like no other. It’s incredibly portable and connects to iPad Pro with the Smart Connector, an innovative new interface that allows for a two-way exchange of power and data. Just attach the Smart Keyboard and start typing. And when you’re done it folds together to create a slim, lightweight cover.
Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro.
Type. On a totally new type of keyboard.
For many, a keyboard remains a convenient way to put thoughts down and get work done. The Smart Keyboard — available for both the 9.7‑inch and 12.9‑inch iPad Pro — features innovative technologies that free you from switches, plugs, and even pairing. It’s a perfect blend of utility and portability. Available in British and US English.
Easy to use. Even easier to take with you.
Simply unfold the Smart Keyboard when you need it. Fold it to create a slim and lightweight cover when you don’t. The elegant design is durable enough to withstand everyday use. And your 23rd draft.
Shortcuts at your fingertips.

No plugs. No switches. No pairing.
The Smart Connector transfers both data and power between iPad Pro and the Smart Keyboard — no batteries or charging required. Just attach the Smart Keyboard, then start typing. And when you disconnect, an onscreen keyboard automatically reappears.
Powerful communication. Powered in a brand‑new way.
To take full advantage of the Smart Connector, we created a unique conductive fabric that allows the two-way flow of power and data. Placed between a protective polyurethane outer layer and a soft microfiber inner lining, it helps make the Smart Keyboard anything but conventional.
Innovation across the board.
Unlike traditional keyboards, there are no gaps between keys to trap crumbs or coffee. Instead, the keys have been laser ablated into a single sheet of durable custom-woven fabric. It provides the spring-like tension for each key, eliminating the need for bulky conventional mechanisms. The fabric is also coated in a water- and stain-resistant finish.
