ipad pro keyboard comparison: which should you buy?

The launch of a new iPad Pro range never fails to get our blood pumping — but it’s not the upgraded tablets that have really caught our eye this year. While the upgraded internals and camera module are impressive, it’s fair to say that, for most people, Apple’s new Magic Keyboard is the most exciting addition to the iPad Pro stable.With a trackpad and floating cantilever mechanism, the Magic Keyboard is a stunning piece of kit — but is it really worth the much higher price over Apple’s more traditional offerings?
