Apple Launches Magic Keyboard Folio for 10th-Gen iPad With Two-Piece Design, Kickstand, and Function Row

Apple today launched the Magic Keyboard Folio, an all-new accessory for the 10th-generation iPad that features a kickstand, trackpad, keyboard with 1mm of travel, and a function key row.

Apple iPad 10th gen Magic Keyboard Folio Apple Pencil 221018
The Magic Keyboard Folio brings the full-size keys, travel, and responsive feel of the Magic Keyboard to the entry-level iPad for the first time. The function row comes to an Apple ‌iPad‌ keyboard for the first time, providing easy access to shortcuts and making everyday tasks like adjusting volume or display brightness easier. The accessory also features a two-piece design, allowing users to magnetically detatch the keyboard, but continue to use the kickstand and keep the back of the ‌iPad‌ protected.

The Magic Keyboard Folio is exclusively compatible with the 10th-generation ‌iPad‌ since it is the only ‌iPad‌ model to feature a Smart Connector along the bottom edge. The new Magic Keyboard Folio designed for the new ‌iPad‌ is available for $249 and comes in White only. A new Smart Folio designed for the 10th-generation ‌iPad‌ is available for $79 in White, Sky, Watermelon, and Lemonade.

I love the first generation of this product—when it was called the Logitech Combo Touch. ;)

now I’m not one of those people who gets upset when Apple diversifies lineups.
Contrary to what most people believe, Steve Jobs did the exact same thing all the time.
He did it with the Mac, he did it with the iPod, if he lived long enough, he most certainly would’ve done it with the iPhone and the iPad as well.
Having different options at different price points is a great idea to help increase market share, and to get more people into the ecosystem.
But… my god, this is one of the first times I have to say, what is going on with this overly complicated lineup?
Five different iPads in the lineup, three of which (the 10, the Air and the 11 inch Pro) are so similar that putting them side-by-side most people wouldn’t be able to tell a difference, two pencils (one of which needs an adapter to be useful), two different keyboards (one of which is only compatible with one model)… what is going on?
The last time Apple had a line up this complicated was like… Maybe the MacBooks in the late 2000s? When there was an aluminum 13 inch MacBook, a plastic 13 inch MacBook, a 13 inch MacBook Air, and a 13 inch MacBook Pro all which were basically the same when it came to specifications?
That’s the latest example I can think of.
This lineup needs a rethink or a reboot or something because… wow it’s a mess
