Workaround for iPad Pro Magic Keyboard backlight issues.

Originally my Magic Keyboard was staying lit all the time draining the battery. That bug seems to have been fixed, but now sometimes the backlight stays off. Messing with the keyboard brightness controls in settings doesn’t do a thing. But here’s the fix to reset the keyboard backlight to work correctly.

  1. Remove the iPad from the Magic Keyboard.
  2. Turn the iPad off.
  3. Put the iPad back on the keyboard.
  4. Turn the iPad on.
