How to adjust iPad Magic Keyboard Brightness?


If you have an iPad and you are looking for a way to increase productivity while using an iPad, then you should definitely get yourself an iPad Magic keyboard. It’s the best investment you will make when it comes to an iPad.

I got myself an iPad Magic Keyboard as soon as I bought my iPad Pro a few months ago. I have to say, its the best purchase I made. It brings the iPad experience way closer to an actual computer experience.

There is no denying in saying that the Magic Keyboard is the best accessory for iPad Pro and the iPad Air. It has the best typing experience, comes with a trackpad, a USB-C Port and also front and back cover to ensure that the iPad is protected and safe.

The Magic Keyboard attaches and detaches magnetically without having to plug in and plug out like you would in a charging cable. Considering the keyboards out there, the Magic key board consumes very less battery for its extensive usage purposes.


Please be aware that the iPad Magic Keyboard is not compabitible with many versions of the iPad. At the moment as of May 2022, it supports the following three devices.

  • iPad Pro 12.9‑inch (3rd, 4th and 5th generation)
  • iPad Pro 11‑inch (1st, 2nd and 3rd generation)
  • iPad Air (4th and 5th generation)

We can expect support for future generations of the above devices. But because of size constraint we shouldn’t expect support for iPad, iPad Mini devices.
