Product Overview

The 2021 Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad is available in two sizes, supporting both the 12.9-inch and the 11-inch models. It adds a sleek backlit physical keyboard, an integrated trackpad with multi-touch gesture control, and a USB-C port for charging.
Reviewers have noted that the new trackpad, while lesser than that found in the MacBook Pro, is superior to that trackpad on Microsoft's Surface machines.
The 11-inch Magic Keyboard is compatible with earlier models; however, the 12-inch model is not. This is because the 2021 iPad Pro is 0.5mm thicker than the 2020 model to accommodate the new mini LED panel.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
Key travel and feel is like the best of both worlds. The keyboard lacks a row of extra function buttons such as volume, brightness and a home button. The trackpad is smaller than the one on any MacBook -- it's more like a Netbook or a tiny Chromebook trackpad.
