Last week, iFixit released an X-ray review of the iPad Pro Magic Keyboard. Today, the company revealed the internal functioning of the trackpad.
Magic Keyboard Trackpad
Different from the MacBook trackpad (which favors Haptic Touch over real buttons), the iPad version has a button, as well as a lever system. One, and while located in the center of the trackpad, it offers a uniform click no matter where you press.
When you apply pressure near the center, whether it’s top, middle or bottom center, you press the button directly. However, press near the top, bottom or one of the corners and the lever system comes into play, forcing the contact plate in the center upward to click.
iFixit notes the ease with which they disassembled the trackpad, claiming that it was the only part of the Magic Keyboard that was disassembled without major destruction of the product. That’s all they revealed so far until the repair guides were released.
