iPad Pro Keyboard Smart Keyboard in Parts

Apple’s Smart Keyboard for the iPad Pro is available in Germany only with English key layout and thus only of limited use. Nevertheless, we do not want to deprive you of the view inside, the ifixit repair professionals have dismantled the folding keyboard.


The entire keyboard is packed under a waterproof and dirt-repellent plastic cover. This can only be removed with the help of a knife and then gives the underlying unprinted, but otherwise identical with those of the 12 “MacBook 64 keys.

The keyboard is powered by the iPad battery. Apple has created a corresponding interface with the Smart Connector. The connection between this connector and the mainboard of the keyboard is realized by means of special textile fibers.
