Testers Keepers: Apple Magic Keyboard review by Holly Johnson

Posted on 19 March 2024

The iPad 11inch Magic Keyboard is a stylish, well sized accessory for any home office or workspace. The design itself has a clean, matte white finish with light grey textured side to ensure screen protection. The neutral aesthetic will suit anyone, regardless of your own personal style.

The size itself is very portable, fitting in a small to medium sized bag with ease. Although the smaller design does mean the keyboard is smaller than other models, it is still user friendly and doesn’t feel too compact - due to its smart design. The keys are slightly raised and have a smooth matte texture and are very pleasant to use. The touchpad is also very responsive - you can clearly hear and feel when you are clicking onto it, which isn’t always the case with Apple products.

It is also heavier than you would expect, showing that it isn’t just a simple piece of equipment that will break at any moment, though please bear this in mind if you are planning on carrying it around all day with your other belongings.

The angle is slightly adjustable, which allows the user to adjust to a more preferred or natural view, depending on the work you are doing which allows for much more flexibility. I would recommend combining this purchase with an apple pen as I can see the benefits that would provide.

I’m looking forward to using this in the future.
