Do existing Surface Pro Type Covers work with Surface Pro 6?
Microsoft has confirmed compatibility
Bundle and save if buying new
If you need a Type Cover (and, honestly, to get the most from the Surface Pro 6, you need one) then one way to save a little is by building a bundle when you buy from Microsoft.
Currently, Microsoft has a bundle running to add a Type Cover to a Surface Pro 6 for $799 (opens in new tab), which is certainly worth springing for if you need to buy both.
Add fingerprint ID for extra security
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 (opens in new tab). It's available in black and costs a little more, but it's the most elegant way to use fingerprint-based security on your Surface Pro 6.
Reuse all your favorite accessories.
All the changes to the Surface Pro 6 were made under the hood which means you can reuse your Type Cover with the new one.
Making the Surface Pro even better.
The Surface Pro is a full PC inside a slim tablet but to get the very best from it you'll be wanting the Type Cover, and this one adds Fingerprint ID.
