The new iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard were unveiled by Apple earlier this month, and many people were impressed. We are huge fans of the tablet’s design and usability. Apple’s use of magnets in developing new technology thrilled us as pioneers in the development of magnetic systems.
We noticed that there was still no case that was completely compatible with the Magic Keyboard after doing extensive market research.
There are numerous iPad Pro cases on the market, but they must be removed to use the Magic Keyboard with the tablet. However, the iPad Pro is vulnerable to scratches if it is not protected by a cover, and this is even more true if the Keyboard is not attached.
For the Magic Keyboard to Work With the iPad Pro Case, we had to Figure out how.
As soon as we started designing, we knew the iPad Pro case needed to be extremely thin in order to integrate flawlessly with the Keyboard. But that wasn’t clear until we finished our prototype in May. Prototypes of the Magic Keyboard were only 1.75mm wide, but they were still too thick to close correctly with the tablet.
The Manufacturing Process is More Difficult the Thinner the Case is.
Using injection moulding to create sections of ultra-thin PC (polycarbonate) over a broad surface area has been a long-standing challenge in the industry.
Why don’t we make the entire thing out of aramid fibre? Because of the unique properties of aramid fibre, it is impossible to include magnets or pins into a finished item. If this is the case, the Magic Keyboard will not function.
First and foremost, we had to track down the ideal injection moulding machine for our needs. We looked all around the world for an injection moulding equipment that could create the thinnest possible case. Our efforts to fine-tune the mould began as soon as we located the machine and continued until it met our exacting standards.
Choosing a flexible material was critical because skinny cases are more prone to cracking. In addition, the mould required to be filled with a plastic that was fluid enough to flow into the mould cavity easily.
What does it Mean to have an iPad Pro Case that is Compatible With the Magic Keyboard?
There are a number of iPad Pro cases available that are compatible with the Magic Keyboard. We looked into a few more possibilities and discovered that they didn’t meet our criteria.
Some users were unable to charge their iPads using the Keyboard’s USB-C connector. Other times, the Magic Keyboard wouldn’t fully close and left an apparent gap when we tried to close it.

It was (finally!) thin enough to close the Magic Keyboard and iPad Pro in the case we developed and built.

Using the USB-C port on the rear of the case, you may charge your iPad Pro using the magnetic contacts on the case.
To ensure the iPad Pro could charge and communicate data via these contacts, we looked at numerous solutions, including spring contacts. It is difficult to charge with spring contacts, and their lifespan is short. They’re also the most straightforward and least expensive to produce. Because of their extended lifespan and capacity to handle high currents, we chose copper contacts even though they were more difficult to incorporate into our design.
Both the tablet and the Keyboard can be utilised in the manner in which they were intended to be used. The iPad Pro remains safe even if you don’t have the Magic Keyboard attached. Attach it magnetically to the Keyboard when you are ready to type. When you’re done, simply snap it shut.
