Apple has obtained a new patent for the user interface when a physical keyboard is connected to a device equipped with a touch screen . This is the iPad and Smart Keyboard, namely the physical keyboard for the iPad Pro. Here, Apple presents a template with new keys for quick access to features. In the patent, Apple presents interesting drawings because new buttons are noted on the keyboard: a button allows quick access to Emojis, a button launches Siri or make a search and another allows to quickly share content displayed on the screen. The key with the most features would be the one with the magnifying glass. A simple support would make a search within the applications to find a word or phrase for example. A long press could allow the use of Siri. New iPads are expected this year, with rumors announcing either a release in March or in the second half of 2017. Apple could possibly present a new Smart Keyboard on this occasion with the new features presented above. The keyboard could be accompanied by a second-generation Apple Pencil.
