There is also a row of shortcut keys compatible with iPadOS at the top of the keyboard, which allows you to adjust volume, media controls, brightness levels, and more with one-tap access. The keys are backlit and automatically adjust to the environment with 16 levels of brightness.

The touch pad is large and allows is precise and easily recognizes multi-touch gestures available on the iPad such as swipe, tap, pinch, and scroll in apps like Safari, Keynote, and Pages.
