New 12.9-Inch iPad Pros Are, in Fact, Compatible With Existing Magic Keyboards

Apple support document:

The first generation of the Magic Keyboard (A1998) is functionally compatible with the new iPad Pro 12.9-inch (5th generation) with Liquid Retina XDR display. Due to the slightly thicker dimensions of this new iPad Pro, it’s possible that the Magic Keyboard may not precisely fit when closed, especially when screen protectors are applied.

I had been wondering about this all week — whether it might work but just not quite close perfectly. Turns out it does.
