The Touch ID of the new Magic Keyboard cannot be used on iPad Pro
The new iPad Pro released by Apple not long ago, although equipped with iPadOS, uses the same M1 processor as the Mac computer, along with the new iMac and Magic Keyboard. The new iMac is also equipped with an M1 processor, and the new Magic Keyboard brings Touch ID functionality.
However, according to MacRumors, Touch ID on iMac’s Magic Keyboard can correspond to other M1 processor Mac computers, such as Mac mini, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air. However, when the new iPad Pro is connected, the Magic Keyboard’s Touch ID function will not be available. The same situation also occurs on Mac computers with Intel processors.
Since the new iPad Pro only provides Face ID, some users originally hoped to use the Touch ID on the keyboard to obtain fingerprint unlocking by matching the new Magic Keyboard, but it is currently determined that it is not compatible and can only be used as a general Bluetooth keyboard after connection.
