Surface Pro 6

Best answer: If you already have a Surface Pro Type Cover then you'll be able to reuse it on the Surface Pro 6. If you do have to get a type cover, we recommend the Surface Type Cover with a built-in fingerprint scanner.

Microsoft has confirmed compatibility

Besides a new color choice, all other changes to the Surface Pro 6 from its predecessor have taken place inside. On the outside, everything is the same size and location, as Microsoft has confirmed:

As there are no changes to the exterior of Surface Pro 6 compared to last year all cases, adapters, accessories, skins, and more all work without issue.

Bundle and save if buying new

If you do need a Type Cover, and honestly, to get the most from the Surface Pro 6, you do, then one way to save a little is by building a bundle when you buy from Microsoft. Eventually, third-parties will no doubt jump on this train, but for now you can get a little off the asking price by buying it this way.

If you're looking for a little added security on your Surface Pro 6, don't forget the Type Cover with built-in fingerprint scanner. It's available in black and costs a little more at $160, but it's the most elegant way to use fingerprint-based security on your Surface Pro 6.
