Stylus And Keyboard

Both the iPad Pro and Surface Pro 7+ are designed to work well with digital pens, which are sold separately. For the Surface Pro 7+ it’s the Surface Pen, while for the iPad Pro it’s the Apple Pencil (which is now in its second generation).

Apple has also updated the keyboard options for the iPad Pro with the latest release. Most notably, Apple has introduced a new Magic Keyboard option for the iPad Pro. The Magic Keyboard uses a scissor mechanism and offers 1 mm of key travel for an improved typing experience. Additionally, the keyboard includes a trackpad for the first time on an iPad keyboard. The latest iPad Pro is also compatible with the previous keyboard design, the Smart Keyboard Folio, which does not offer a trackpad.

Likewise, Microsoft offers two keyboard options for the Surface Pro 7+—though both come with a trackpad. Those options include a basic Type Cover and the “Signature Edition” with Alcantara fabric around the keys. The Surface Pro keyboards also offer deeper keys than the iPad Pro Magic Keyboard, with key travel of 1.3 mm.
