iPad Pro Keyboard Shortcuts To Use Your Big Screen Device Like a Boss

Migrated from a Mac to iPad Pro recently? Get accustomed to iPad Pro’s smart keyboard easily as there is a striking similarity between OS X keyboard shortcuts and iPad Pro keyboard shortcuts.

Ever since Apple has launched its iPad Pro in the market, there has been gossip abuzz – Apple is killing its own MacBook. We don’t want to plunge into this business, but seriously want to compare the usefulness of both the products.

If we closely examine the features and size (which matters the most in this age), people would certainly give a second thought before buying a MacBook. Since iPad Pro is a huge 12.9-inch monster, a keyboard was rightly expected by users. Apple fulfilled this demand by giving a beautiful smart keyboard with iPad Pro. This one is a full-size keyboard, fully portable and connects to iPad Pro with a smart connector.
