Of these, the 12.9-inch version uses mini-LED technology with a resolution of 2732 x 2048. The starting price of this device is 8499 yuan ($1308). According to reports, the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro does not support the old Magic Keyboard. This is because the thickness of the new product is higher by 0.5mm.
