Apple's detachable Magic Keyboard is one of the best iPad accessories to buy. 

The Magic Keyboard in this deal works with the 4th generation iPad Air and the 1st and 2nd generation 11-inch iPad Pro only. It features a floating cantilever design to angle the tablet, a 3.9 x 1.8-inch glass touchpad, and a USB‑C port for pass-through charging. 

In our Magic Keyboard review, we praised its comfortable backlit keys, responsive touchpad, and excellent fit and finish. Connecting the iPad to the Magic Keyboard was as simple as lining the camera module up to the cutout on the back.

In real-world use, we found the Magic Keyboard offers a comfortable typing experience than the Apple Smart Keyboard. Its backlit keys only glow when a sensor detects a low-light environment. Scrolling on the touchpad felt smooth and finger swipes were all reliable.

Simply put, if you want to turn your iPad into a laptop replacement, the Apple Magic Keyboard is the way to go. Like all Apple deals, we suspect this one won't last, so don't hesitate too long.
