Smart Keyboard gets new languages

When I got my 12.9-inch iPad Pro briefing last year, Apple told me that other layouts of the Smart Keyboard—beyond the U.S. standard—were in the works. I was told the same at the briefing for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. But there had been no sign of one, until yesterday.

As 9to5 Mac reports, Apple has rolled out new variants of the Smart Keyboard:

Available for both the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, Apple now offers the Smart Keyboard accessory with localized layouts including British English, French, Spanish, Korean, Italian and Arabic, among others.

It’s good to see that international iPad Pro users no longer have to type away on the U.S. keyboard layout.
