In spite of its evidently unfaltering commitment to using the Lightning port in iPhones, Apple isn’t typically squeamish about finishing support for old accessories and products when it proclaims the latest, greatest version of something.
That is particularly clear this week, as it’s been uncovered that the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro will not work with the Magic Keyboard Apple made for its archetype only one year prior.
French site iGeneration was quick to cover the news, clarifying that albeit the 2020 and 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro are for the most part comparative, the upgraded one is 0.5 mm thicker. The site professed to have seen Apple documentation saying that the more seasoned Magic Keyboard would not be upheld. AppleInsider later professed to get affirmation straightforwardly from Apple that this is the situation.
It’s essential to note, however, that the Apple Store site asserts that the new Magic Keyboard works with the more established iPad Pro models. Likewise, this solitary influences the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro; the 11-inch model actually works with the past Magic Keyboard.
That is not by any means the only inheritance support issue with Apple’s new items this week. While the troublesome Siri distant for the 2017 Apple TV 4K incorporated a spinner and accelerometer, the updated far off for the new Apple TV 4K comes up short on those highlights. This change would no affect the TV-seeing involvement in that gadget, yet it is important for games. Certain Apple TV games utilized those sensors to empower iPhone-like data sources and interactivity encounters.
All things considered, Apple has added support for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series regulators to the Apple TV stage, and keeping in mind that all Apple Arcade games are needed to run on Apple TV, a huge bit of them require devoted gamepads to do as such. Apple may see endeavors to make games playable with its own far off as an impasse and could be looking toward those more conventional regulators for help later on.
