If you're still somehow in the possession of a 2016-released 9.7-inch iPad Pro
, you might be inclined to upgrade to Apple's new iPad Air
, one of last year's sleek iPad Pro variants
with Face ID technology, or even 2018's 9.7-inch "regular" iPad
. But with iOS 12 support already provided, an iOS 13iPadOS 13 update
right around the corner, and a respectable A9X processor under the hood, the old Pro can still adequately get the job done in most typical usage scenarios.
That being said, if you don't own an official Apple Smart Keyboard designed specifically to enhance the productivity and utility of the first compact iPad Pro
generation, today looks like the perfect time to pick one up, as A4C has brand-new units on sale for a measly $59.99 a pop. That may not sound incredibly affordable for a mundane keyboard accessory made to work with a three year-old tablet, but this is far from a mundane product, seamlessly attaching to the 9.7-incher to transfer both data and power, thus involving no effort on the user's part when it comes to charging.
Back in the day, this gray-colored Smart Keyboard used to cost a whopping $169.99, which means you're looking at saving a full 110 bucks, at least technically. Naturally, Apple no longer sells this particular model directly, and finding unused units in stock at major third-party retailers is not exactly easy either.
Keep in mind that you only have a few more hours to pull the trigger at the heavily discounted price of 60 bucks, and although A4C doesn't specifically mention the item being joined by any kind of warranty, you should be able to get this covered for a standard period of one year at Apple. After all, we're apparently dealing with new, untouched keyboards here shipping in their original retail packaging.
