    I replaced my old iPad Pro 10.5 a few weeks ago with a new iPad Pro 12.9 4th Gen with the intention of getting the Magic Keyboard when it was available, but as that was going to be around May, I plumped for the Keyboard Folio case to maximise the iPad's use.

    I have linked my Magic Mouse to the iPad, but I'll be honest I haven't used it that much as not a lot of apps support it at the moment.

    So I'm really stuck on the fence between spending £350 on the Magic Keyboard or keeping the Folio keyboard for now and look again at a later date and sell the Folio Keyboard on on eBay or something.

    I've tried looking on the net, but I can't seem to find any articles indicating current mouse/touchpad supporting apps on the iPad other than Apples productivity apps.

    Thanks

    Well, if you're getting by with your current Folio keyboard, I'd stick with it. £350 is a lot of money!

    If the current folio keyboard fits your needs, then by all means keep it. I had a folio keyboard on my last iPad and could not stand how it locked into place and how I couldn’t sit it on my lap. The new magic keyboard fits perfectly and I must say the keys are much more satisfying to type on. Pricey yes, but definitely a game changer for me.

    I also had the 10.5 Pro with the Smart Keyboard. My Magic Keyboard arrived today (from Best Buy) for the 12.9 Gen 4 and I have to tell you, there’s NO comparison. I wanted a Pro for work because I can’t connect to just any old Wi-Fi with my laptop as I work with Non-public personal info. I really feel like, for me, I totally got my moneys worth. LOVE this keyboard! Edited to add that I’m typing this on my lap. The Smart Keyboard wasn’t nearly as stable for that.
