Apple is reportedly testing a new solution to make it easier for users to change the brightness levels on the iPad keyboard. At present, it is quite a task to alter the brightness levels of the backlight in the keyboard. Users will have to go to Settings and check out multiple options to finally change the brightness. However, as per a report by 9to5Mac, a beta version of iPadOS 13.5.5 is said to be talking about keyboard shortcuts that can change the brightness of the keyboard.
The report by 9to5 Mac doesn’t mention that this feature may be rolled out anytime soon but the fact that Apple is working out a solution for fixing the long process of changing the brightness makes us hopeful.
For those who use the iPad for serious work, having a function row to quickly toggle settings definitely comes handy but Apple seems to be not interested in providing it.
The Magic Keyboard attaches magnetically to iPad Pro and features a full-size keyboard with backlit keys and a scissor mechanism that delivers 1mm travel. It houses a USB-C pass-through charging port, which keeps the USB-C port on iPad Pro free for attaching accessories, including external drives and displays.
It supports Multi-Touch gestures on the trackpad. Even though the new Magic Keyboard is designed to work with the new iPad Pro, it is also compatible with the previous generation iPad Pro models — all iPad Pro models, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, and iPad mini 4 and later.
Meanwhile, Apple has recently announced the iPadOS 13.5. The biggest feature of the latest operating system update is the Exposure Notifications that the company has co-created with Google for allowing apps made by local health authorities to create contact tracing apps.
Further, this update makes it easier for users to unlock their iPhones and iPads with a mask on. If the device detects that the user is wearing a mask, the passcode field gets automatically presented after swiping up from the bottom of the lock screen.
