Apple's first-gen Smart Keyboard is half off at Target for both 10.5 and 12.9-inch iPads
It's not every day that we see one of Apple's productivity-enhancing Smart Keyboards available for a lower than typical price at a major US retailer, let alone two different models fetching as little as $79.50 and $84.50. The former can be used alongside the 2017-released iPad Pro 10.5, as well as the recently revived 10.5-inch iPad Air, while the latter is compatible with first and second-gen iPad Pro 12.9 versions. Neither one supports 2018's 11 or 12.9-inch iPad Pros, which might explain the unusual deals.
But we're still talking about a popular accessory designed for more than decent tablets that remain extremely smart purchases... at hefty enough discounts. In case you're wondering, Apple continues to charge a whopping $159 for a 10.5-inch iPad Pro and iPad Air Smart Keyboard, while the larger model costs $169 through the official US e-store of the Cupertino-based tech giant.
That means you're looking at massive savings of around 80 and 85 bucks respectively, representing roughly half of the list prices of these two full-size, fully portable keyboards with magnetic connectors, a lightweight and straightforward (in a good way) design, and no need for charging.
In addition to a relatively comfortable typing experience making your iPad Pro a powerful business tool, the Smart Keyboard also provides decent protection against scratches and water. Perhaps most importantly, Target's discounts make Apple's first-party iPad Pro 10.5 and 12.9 keyboard option more competitive against third-party alternatives.
