“As expected, Apple unveiled the new iPad Pro at Tuesday’s event in New York,” Andrew Gebhart writes for CNET. “With better graphics and more storage, it looks designed to replace your laptop. And one of its accessories will help that cause — the Smart Keyboard Folio.”

“The Folio allows you to prop up your iPad at two angles. It pairs automatically with the iPad and attaches magnetically,” Gebhart writes. “You won’t need to charge it either as the iPad keeps it running with a smart connector that transfers power.”

“The Smart Keyboard Folio will come in a variety of sizes suited for the different iPad Pro configurations,” Gebhart writes. “The model for the $799 11-inch iPad Pro will cost $199. The Keyboard for the $999 12.9 inch iPad Pro will cost $179.”

The new iPad Pro with Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard Folio offer take-anywhere power and versatility.
