Apple may release a Smart Keyboard with a scissor switch design for its next-generation iPad and iPad Pro models, according to DigiTimes (a subscription is required to read the entire report). The article says that the next generation of Apple’s tablets will sport a scissor switch keyboard.
Chances the rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 90%. Apple debuted a new scissor switch keyboard with the 16-inch MacBook Pro. It makes sense that the company would bring such a keyboard to at least the iPad Pro, if it continues to push the table as a laptop replacement/alternative.
