Skip If You Want Smart Keyboard Support
When Apple released the 2018 iPad Pros it also released a new Smart Keyboard for the iPad Pro.
If you're unfamiliar, the Apple Smart Keyboard includes two angles which makes it easy to use it while the iPad is sitting on a table or sitting in your lap.
It also connects the iPad with a Smart Connector. This means there are no wires to deal with and no charging necessary. You just connect the device and start typing.
Unfortunately, the iPad mini 5 doesn't come a Smart Keyboard option (it's supposed to be used in your hand rather than as a laptop) which means those of you interested in the accessory must upgrade to the new iPad Air 3 or to the iPad Pro line.
