    • Written by from San Jose

    Everything about this keyboard is great, but, it's time to stop playing games Apple.
    It's time to step your game up with a SPACE GRAY, ILLUMINATED keyboard. Yes I know it would require more energy to operate. PUT A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY IN IT.

    I love this keyboard

    • Written by from Red Lion

    It would be 5 stars if they offered a model with the extended number pad.

    As for the people complaining about the lack of page up / down buttons, using the fn key and the up / down arrow is the shortcut for that and for home and end keys, it's cmd + left / right.

    This keyboard is all around fantastic.

    Love it

    • Written by from Pasadena

    I really wish they would make a keyboard that's rechargeable with the same charger as the iPhone 5/6. Another thing I'd recommend is backlit keys like the laptops as well as the ability able to plug the keyboard directly into your phone to type faster emails. Other then that it's efficient having a keyboard that has the same layout as your MacBook.

    Great keyboard!

    • Written by from Trooper

    QUALITY- I'm genuinely shocked at the number of bad reviews for this. I'm on my second one now after wearing the first one out and when this one wears out, I'll probably get another one to replace. I'm at my computer 8-12 hours a day and can't even begin to guess at how many keystrokes per day go through this thing.

    DESIGN- The design is pure Apple and it's great. Minimalist and blends perfectly with the Macbook, trackpad, and display. Solid feel and the tactile response from the keys is nearly perfect for a chiclet keyboard. My only gripe is that the white keys are dirt magnets! If you are going back and forth between typing and working on things (electronics usually in my case) be prepared to clean the keys often! I use screen wipes and do it when I'm changing the batteries.

    BATTERY- Where I replace the trackpad batteries every couple of weeks, I can go 3-4 months with this keyboard before swapping out for a fresh pair. I don't travel with it and don't turn it off, just let it go to sleep on its own. I'm using Duracell rechargeable batteries (if it makes a difference). Can't say what others are using, but after reading so many battery corrosion issues, I had to do some Internet research. It's amazing that someone would drop $70 on a keyboard and then put cheap batteries in it!

    SETUP- Drop. Dead. Simple. Seriously, if you can't follow the 3 steps in the quick start guide and get this thing working then stop what you're doing and return any technology you have.

    I like it, but......

    • Written by from Washington

    I would love to give this 5 stars because it looks great and it paired up with my ipad air, iphone 4s and apple TV no problem. The only thing that lets it down for me is that sometimes it will repeat the 1st character you press on the keyboard, usually when it's 1st switched on or when going to a different web site. It's a bit frustrating to have to be mindful of this as well as typing. Other than that, any shortcuts I have saved to my ipad work with the keyboard which I like as I'm not the fastest at typing. Hope this review helps

    All round, A great "little" keyboard!

    • Written by from Gloucester

    Again, a great piece of technology... Stylish, Fast, and I use the word "little"... Firstly, it looks great. Its aluminium housing fits in with all apple computers and notebooks, but still looks good with any computer. It has precision cut edges giving it a reel feel of quality. The keys are a perfect size, feel soft to the touch but strong enough for heavy use. The letter/numbers etc are sort of clear to see, I say sort of because they are quiet difficult to see when in a low light environment which brings me to my only negative point which I will explain below. They are also in a perfect layout, not too close together while not to far apart, leaving ugly empty spaces, which you find on many keyboard today, so it doesn't make you hands/wrists ache after a long time typing as all the keys are at an easy reach! White is where the word little come in, As the keys are placed and arrange they way they are, apple have been able to keep the keyboard small, making it fit onto almost any environment and again keep it looking stylish. As for fast, it connects almost instantly and I have yet to see it buffering/lagging when typing. Battery life I have yet to discover as I have only had the keyboard for 2 weeks. But many other reviews say it last a good amount of time before batteries need replacing. I now come onto my only negative point, which I would say is quite a big one... Backlight... This keyboard would really benefit from a backlight, as seen on the MacBooks... Yes, it would greatly shorten the battery life, but apple could give the keyboard some form of a rechargeable battery that you can recharge by usb for example... But, this aside, its a great "little" keyboard!


    No Backlight

    Wireless Keyboard battery life and keyboard length are issues to consider

    • Written by from Corral de Tierra

    I've owned my wireless keyboard about two years, changed batteries about 10 times, and never had an issue with pairing. It is always immediate. I like the low profle and tactile response. There are two flaws that for me are a problem. First, there is no numeric keypad. Second, the keyboard is too short. I like a longer keyboard because it has more mass and is more stable, and I can use it on my lap or an uneven surface. I also think the keyboard consumes too much power - batteries don't last nearly as long as I think they should.

    Great feel & key response but its too limited without the extended keyboard

    • Written by from Cleveland

    As usual, this is a quality made product from Apple and if this wireless keyboard was an extended keyboard I'd have given it 5 stars. If this was the size & layout of the USB extended keyboard that came with my iMac, I would love it. Bluetooth works great & no wires is a major plus. The feel and response of the keys is great too.

    Not having the extended keyboard, and the modification of the actions of the remaining keys isn't as efficient for me. I also have the wireless mouse but its the large wireless trackpad that I use the most along with a lot of key controls. I look for the fastest way to navigate through my computer, screens, apps & I use many keyboard actions in place of a mouse or trackpad control.

    Another major concern for me is that I also have an iPhone & iPad, along with other iMacs. This has me bouncing around between many keyboards. BTW, I LOVE my iPad & find myself using it far more often, and my iMac far less. I'll be installing Yosemite soon & suspect that the synchronization of my iMac, with my already synchronized iPhone & iPad will bring me back to my iMac more often.

    Nice keyboard

    • Written by from Ystradgynlais

    Bought one for use with my Mac Mini after I spilled tea over my cheaper genreric bluetooth keyboard. Unlike that one the apple keyboard doesn't disconnect after being idle for 5 minutes. The sleek design looks good and the keys are good to the touch. Being a touch typist, my one gripe is the in the layout of the @ and " keys which are the "wrong" way around. Although this can be corrected by selecting Brtish PC as the input source, I am trying to see if I can get on with the layout as is. Another gripe, which applies to all UK keyboards, do we really need the $ key? This should be replaced, IMO, by the € key. A suggestion that Apple might consider on future keyboards.

    That said, it was still a good purchase.

    Well rounded wireless keyboard

    • Written by from huntington

    This keyboard is quite near compatable with every Macintosh, Classics suchs as eMac g4 with usb bt chip, Any device that can take a Bluetooth keyboard,
    The only problem I have had with paring has been with Samsung devices, Rooted and custom rom did not resolve the problem..
    I recall a difficult time to pair with the Samsung 7 inch tablet. "shows for 2 seconds out of 245563 attempts"
    My current cellphone is an android lg-e973 and pairs like cake
    My only problem is the life of the board, Guess I should use lithium's or get a better rechargeables

    Oh wait the major fail on apples part is the genius is how to replace the cells
    0. find a coin bigger then a dime
    1. use coin to remove small cover
    2. change the 3 cells
    3. lose the small cover some where's in the r0om.

    Why do I love the PlayStation 3 controllers sell so well?
    Standard usb charger port and blutooth and able to charge+play with usb, and compatibility as wide as this keyboard.
    Why I compaired to ps3 controllers? Because its user friendly human interface and I want apple to use this in there next keyboard upgrade

    I would glady buy a new keyboard if it had a mega battery life, and was able to work via usb while charging,+ having and be able to pair to a set device by pressing a number key. if I could plug my phone in to the keyboard and have the phone charge
    that sysadmin guy would buy with my features.

    Best keyboard for iPad

    • Written by from Belleville

    I've had scores of other keyboards. But the fact that this one is a full sized keyboard (unlike Logitech, whose design I like for case and keyboard but the keyboard is not very functional for someone who types a great deal) is a plus. The only real down side is that there's no case for the iPad and keyboard. I ended up purchasing the origami case for the keyboard (after carrying it around with me in the original box for YEARS) and a case for my newly upgraded iPad Air (upgraded from an iPad 2).

    I wish Apple would get with the program and design something for both or come up with a new keyboard/case for it's product.

    So far so good, but......

    • Written by from UNDERWOOD

    I bought it today and it is very comfortable for using on ipad. However there are not too much functions button support for iOS system such as back to home screen and so on.

    So I hope apple can improve the support more functions for ipad by using the apple wireless keyboard.

    Very Nice But Just A Little More Refinement

    • Written by from Dallas

    This keyboard is nice to use all around including writing papers, coding, and doing creative media. I really like the small footprint of the keyboard since I can have my mouse to the keyboard.

    I feel Apple can improving one thing on their next iteration of the keyboard:
    Just a little better keystroke feedback. I still find myself having more typos using this keyboard compared to my mechanical keyboard. If this could be properly addressed, I wouldn't take any other keyboard in the world.

    I would like to give 4.5 stars if possible.

    Great Keyboard!

    • Written by from Forest Hills

    Really like this keyboard. Looks great with my MacBook and iPad. I like the chicklet design and key travel. The only thing I wish it had was backlighting for use in a dark room (but I understand that this would be a big battery drain). Lack of backlighting is why I gave it four stars, otherwise it would have been a five star review.

    Nice keyboard all in all. Only thought that the keyboard was lighted like the MacBook keyboard. I suppose it being a battery operated preclude the ability to have it light as well.

    Almost there

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Great product with a fresh and clean imagine like all apple products.

    Negatives - Needs a delete key, as well as a hashtag key.

    The option for wireless keyboards with a numerical keypad would also be ideal, but not as essential as the other two small changes.

    Nice Product BUT...

    • Written by from Whittier

    it's just a tad to small for big hands, and if your use to the "old" white mac keyboard then it will take getting use to because of the space difference, but after a while you get use to it, the numerical keypad isn't missed that much, but I love that since it is wireless, the cord isn't missed at all! THIS IS PRETTY COOL KEYBOARD!
