      Don't listen to the haters....This is a fantastic "keyboard"

      Love at first use. This keyboard is amazing. Yes, it does only cover the front, but so what. Yes, there is no holder for the pencil, but, so what. Yes, the Love at first use. This keyboard is amazing. Yes, it does only cover the front, but so what. Yes, there is no holder for the pencil, but, so what. Yes, there may be some functionality glitches, but again, so what. This Smart "KEYBOARD" for iPad Pro rocks. Apple only promised us a keyboard, and that's what this is. The whiners probably shake their birthday cards for money before they read them, so sad. This is by far the best peripheral keyboard I've ever used in terms of feel and accuracy. Oh, and the feel/look of the materials/design is far from cheap, as mentioned in some other reviews. They nailed it, AGAIN!! Thanks Apple. Bottom Line - Drop the coin and don't look back. This keyboard will transform your iPad Pro into a monster of mayhem.(in a good way). Cheers!!

      After 35 years of computing, my favorite keyboard of all time.

I make virtually no typing errors on it, and it's proximity to the display makes the combination of a keyboard and the touch screen really work. With my other iPads, I used several aftermarket keyboards and typically abandoned them in a short time. I love this one, and hope that the shortcomings will be resolved soon in software.

      Best keyboard experience

      The keyboard might seem a bit on the higher end when it comes to the price, but then it is a pleasure to use. Based on my past experience with Logitech keyboard The keyboard might seem a bit on the higher end when it comes to the price, but then it is a pleasure to use. Based on my past experience with Logitech keyboards, I was a bit sceptical in using a keyboard at first but so far have not been disappointed. The quality is excellent, the keyboard works and integrates well with the iPadPro. Some people might want a trackpad - but given it is an iPad, you really do not need any. I recommend to get an Apple Pencil as well.

      Disappointing. Causes locked screen to flicker needing constant reboot

      I'm now on my second iPad Pro 12 inch. At first I (and Apple Store) wasn't able to diagnose my problem of constant screen flickering when in locked mode. Return I'm now on my second iPad Pro 12 inch. At first I (and Apple Store) wasn't able to diagnose my problem of constant screen flickering when in locked mode. Returned my iPad and got a new one, but with the same original Apple Smart Keyboard. Now having all the same issues with my new IPad. Even after two complete resets to original settings. I'm convinced the Apple Smart Keyboard is the cause for this problem. I've isolated all the software apps I use, removing one by one, to understand this screen flickering issue. My conclusion is that this keyboard is the issue. I constantly get a pop up indicating "this device is not supported", then when the locked screen flickers uncontrollably I have to restart the iPad. Very frustrating. I use my iPad for work and travel. It's an increasingly powerful tool, but the keyboard has issues that have not been corrected by Apple. I don't recommend this product, but hope Apple fixes these issues in the next gen. Apple please help!

      A smart invention

      Got the iPad Pro (the real one) back in July 2016 and have to say, although sometimes it can seem like a redundant accessory, liking the Smart Keyboard. It does Got the iPad Pro (the real one) back in July 2016 and have to say, although sometimes it can seem like a redundant accessory, liking the Smart Keyboard. It does not dilute the iPad it adds to it. It's cool to have shortcuts like my favorite command F. While the OSK is convenient if preferred, the Smart Keyboard gives you the whole screen to work on and it got me to appreciate on screen typing. This also makes the iPad watchable from a distance and prevents any of the compromises you might get when you use the iPad by itself. $170? Would pay $100, but this is a cool product.
