Amazon is now offering a rare chance to save on the official Apple Smart Keyboard Folio for 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Now marked down for only the second time this year, you can score the first-party accessory for $159 shipped. Down from $199, this is marking the second-best discount of the year and lowest since it was last on sale back in March. This is $10 less than our original mention. While not the more feature-packed Magic Keyboard, Apple’s Smart Keyboard Folio delivers an impressive experience for less. It covers your latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro with a folio design that protects the back while folding closed when not in use. Pairing with one of Apple’s Smart Connectors, there’s the physical keyboard which improves the typing experience and turns your iPad Pro into more of a workstation machine.

At a more affordable price point, the Twelve South BookBook cover is a notable way to add some extra protection into the mix for your 12.9-inch iPad Pro. This hardback leather case won’t add a physical keyboard into the mix, but does offer added protection, a built-in stand, and enough room to accommodate Apple’s Smart and Magic Keyboard Folios, on top of standalone keyboards and more. Selling for $90, this is a notable option to consider for going a different route than the purely productivity-focused discount above.
If you’re looking to get in on the latest that Apple has to offer in terms of iPadOS, we’re currently tracking new all-time lows on its latest M1 machines. Pairing perfectly with the lead deal, the 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro is now $199 off with its Liquid Retina XDR display and Thunderbolt connectivity in tow across several storage capacities and models at new all-time lows from $900.
