Microsoft today announced the next generation of Type Cover, made for Surface Pro 4, offers the most advanced Surface typing experience yet. It is also compatible with Surface Pro 3. Surface Pro 4 Type Cover is made from premium materials and feels soft to the touch yet sturdy and quieter when typing. It’s available in multiple colors so you can express your personal style. Plus Surface Pro 4 Type Cover is backlit, so you can continue working after the lights go out.
- Fully redesigned, the Surface Pro 4 Type Cover is thinner and lighter than before with improved magnetic stability for lap use. It also has a mechanical keyboard with optimal key spacing for fast and fluid typing, plus an enlarged track pad for precision control and navigation.
- Log into your Surface Pro 4 with one simple tap using the Surface Pro 4 Type Cover with Fingerprint ID. No more wasted time. Store all of your passwords in one place with Microsoft Passport and use your fingertip to perform actions like purchasing an app from the Windows Store, all thanks to the convenience and security of Windows Hello.
- Surface Pro 4 Type Cover has a new improved design with slightly spread out keys for a more familiar and efficient typing experience. The two-button trackpad is now larger for precision control and navigation.
- The keyboard is sturdy with enhanced magnetic stability along the fold, so you can adjust it to the right angle and work on your lap, on the plane, or at your desk. Since it’s designed just for Surface, the Surface Pro 4 Type Cover easily clicks into place to go from tablet to laptop instantly.
- Fold Surface Pro 4 Type Cover back like a magazine for a tablet experience with Surface Pro 4. The keys are disabled when the cover is flipped back to avoid inadvertent typing. When you close Surface Pro 4 Type Cover over the display, it functions as a protective shell, shielding the screen from bumps and scratches.
