Redesigned. Rechargeable. Remarkable.

      My least favorite Apple product (of all time)

      This may be the only item I've ever been compelled to write a negative review about, for anything, ever. My dislike stems from the fact that, as others have poi This may be the only item I've ever been compelled to write a negative review about, for anything, ever. My dislike stems from the fact that, as others have pointed out (some in a positive light), that it feels just like using a laptop keyboard. Yes, it feels exactly like that. I didn't buy a standalone keyboard for it to feel like my MacBook Air (which, btw, I love). I wanted improved functionality, along with minimal cordage on my cramped desk. Having used an earlier version of the magic keyboard at work and finding it easy to use, I didn't have any qualms trading off the expanded functionality of the USB cable version for this smaller keyboard, though I suspected I'd miss it a little bit. So I was surprised to find out how different the usability of this keyboard is to the earlier magic keyboard I'd used before. The angle of the keyboard makes it difficult to type. The close positioning of the keys makes it difficult to type. The location of the fn key is constantly in my way. Oddly enough, when I'm on my laptop, I don't have any of these issues, like constantly losing letters I just typed or thought I'd typed), hitting the fn key accidentally when I want to use the control key, etc. This tells me it's not that I'm not used to a smaller size keyboard, it's that there are several major design flaws. Typing this review, even, borders on semi-painful. I'm a fast typer and a good speller -- if I were to submit this review as it were being typed, however, it would look like a 6-year-old wrote it (no offense to six-year-olds). Last but not least, I actually ALSO have a functional problem with it: the fn key doesn't work to allow me to interchange between fn keys and their other, more useful duties, such as sound control, screen brightness, etc. System preferences aren't making it work, so it's something else happening that I can't figure out. At least I can get my keyboard "fixed" ... but what I really wish I could do, is replace it entirely with the prior version of this, which may have had battery issues (or so I've heard), but at least was EASY TO USE for its intended purpose: TYPING. Sorry for the negativity. I just ... am so ... annoyed with this product.

      disappointed :(

It was perfect but it went nuts on me and would not hold a connection and would not type numbers.. it was old and it decided it to call it quits.. and I ran out to replace it today and thought that this would be the same but without batteries. Its so flat. I have had to write a report tonight and my wrists are killing me! Its not at all ergonomic.. why no legs? Why no back light ? I dont mind the keys being more shallow, i can live with that kind of a change but when it does not work for basic healthy typing position what is the point? I use an external keyboard because the keyboard on the lap top is not at an angle that is healthy to work on for long hours and a lot of typing, I am curious as to what was the rational for many of these changes ? Ergonomics are a huge issue in any work station. . I suppose i could prop it up on stuff but that is not a very good solution for mobile use. Total fail.. the old one had a very very smart user friendly design. The angle was created by the little round area where the batteries went in.. was quite brilliant. Maybe I can find little rubber feet and glue them to the back and then find something to keep it from sliding towards me, it was not designed for that but I may be able to make it work. APPLE do you have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

      Noisy and cheap-feeling, terrible value for money

This new one is definitely a step backwards. The keys feel cheap and nasty and are very very noisy when you type. I record screencasts during which I'm often typing, and the noise is ruining my audio. Also the lower angle makes it more uncomfortable to type. Unfortunately this being apple you don't have much choice if you need a keyboard, but if you can find an alternative, buy it. There's no way this is worth the £79 I paid for it.

Bluetooth works perfect. It never fails. Love that. However, i don't think I've ever made as many mistakes as I made when typing here. Over and over. I can't get used to it. I've had other Apple keyboards and I've had 4 laptops. Nothing was as bad as this. Except maybe the MacBook Pro 2017... i can't believe Logitech has a MUCH better keyboard. The feeling is better and I don't get have to correct all the time. Love it the logitech keyboard for iPad pro. Please, Apple, just copy that technology.

      Best Bluetooth Keyboard for iOS & "Android"

      After asking around for the best keyboard for an Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S2), I was discouraged that I would not be able to find a decent keyboard. I After asking around for the best keyboard for an Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S2), I was discouraged that I would not be able to find a decent keyboard. I got a used iPad Air from one of my family members and decided to switch from Android M to iOS 10. The transition was not without it's quirks, but I finally have managed to really like my new iPhone (6 Plus) and iPad Air. The Magic Keyboard, by the way, is excellent. Great feel, and amazing battery life. I have used it for a couple of hours every day for the last week, and it's still at 100%!! I love the fact that this keyboard works so well with iOS. But...... Apple has either lied or not researched the exact compatibility with various OS's. This keyboard works for Android!! Dare I say, better than iOS? An Apple specialist that I chatted with online said that it would not work with Android. So, now that I have bought various adapters and spent a good portion of money trying to transition from Android to iOS, and I find out that I didn't have to do so in the first place, I'm kind of ticked off. I could have easily got the keyboard for my Samsung tablet (Which is an amazing tablet, by the way), and given Apple my business as well. I think that Apple is a good company that builds great products, but someone somewhere needs to update the compatibility info for the Magic Keyboard. It does work with Android!! And, there's nothing wrong with spending $100 for an "Apple" keyboard with a "Google" Operating System. Great keyboard, but Apple doesn't even know their own product. And they don't tell the truth about compatibility.
