    Works keyboard in history

    Not much to add. 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 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.

    Great, except for arrows -- Get an older model

    The keyboard is fine, except for the arrows. I cannot get used to them, and cannot touch type anymore. I HIGHLY recommend an older bluetooth keyboard model which has the proper arrow keys. These are useless, and I keep hitting shift, or the wrong arrow, or just plain cannot find them. It turns out this is SUPER FRUSTRATING.

    Don't

    Apple seems to think that your body should conform to their devices and not the other way around. This cramped keyboard is an ergonomic nightmare. If your goal is to develop wrist pain and carpal tunnel syndrome, than by all means purchase this keyboard.

    Easy setup experience

    I simply plugged this into a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015) running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 (15G1212) and it paired instantly.

    People seem to get more and more extreme in their views of Apple products.

    For me, I like the travel of the keys compared with the aforementioned MacBook Pro model, it's less stress on my hands after a full day of typing. I think that the edges of the aluminum could be a little more forgiving, but I rarely pick this up and move it around on the desk for that to be too much of an annoyance. The only wish I have is that it was backlit, I just hate seeing empty F5 and F6 keys on the keyboard.

    I've bought two, and buttons stopped working on both!!!

    Expensive piece of trash. I'm on my 2nd one, because on my first one, the delete button stopped working. Now, on my second one, barely used and totally protected in the box, the delete and arrow buttons are not working.

    Poor keyboard

    All keys are the same exact shape and spacing so using keys by feel/muscle memory doesn't really work too well

    Actually went out and bought and older apple wireless keyboard to go back to the speed at which I could work at before I got this one

    Bad keyboard

    This came with my iMac.
    It looks like it was designed with portability in mind and not to be used on daily basis.

    Pros:
    - free.
    Cons:
    - too small.
    - missing numpad.
    - arrow keys are too small.
    - keys are too close together.
    - not meant for professional use.

    Upgraded my Apple Keyboard to New Magic Keyboard

    The new Magic Keyboard is wonderful, no problems with my MacPro finding it. The flatter design has helped me type better and there is less stress on my wrists. My original Apple keyboard stuck it out with me for 4 years without a problem. This is a great keyboard and very easy to adapt to. Thank you Apple.

    Not Terrible... Not Great...

    I don't mind the keyboard too much; however, I do work with numbers a lot so it would sure be nice to have a numeric pad on this keyboard. Also, it does take some getting used to if you're used to the traditional Apple Keyboard with Numeric Pad and the previous version of the Magic Keyboard.
    I just wish Apple would update their Keyboard with Numeric Pad as I use the numeric pad more than the qwerty keyboard. Sad.

    Perfect Norwegian/Swedish developer keyboard

    This keyboard has many "easy" shortcuts to developer characters such as "{", "}". I really often do programming with my MacBook Air wich is using this keyboard and it is awesome that it is so easy to get to the characters I want compared with other keyboard layouts.

    Terrible Terrible Terrible!

    Lack of number pad is bad enough, but then add the fact that the angle, and spacing of the keys is terrible. Did anyone even test this thing before putting it into production? NEWS FLASH APPLE: SOME THINGS DON'T NEED TO BE REDESIGNED!!!

    Couldn't get it to work

    I've tried 2 now, the first one they sent it would recognize the mac book pro, but not the ipad because it would not hold charge (as in I had it to have it connected to the Mac Book for it to work). I asked for an exchange, and the second one, the USB cord would not work at all and wouldn't even connect to my Mac Book much less the ipad. Sending both back. The old battery one worked great right out of the box, but sadly the batteries exploded in there and I can't use it anymore. Now there isn't an option to buy the battery keyboard.

    Glow in the dark

    I love the magic keyboard. The keyboard types comfortably and is compact. No other keyboard allowed me to type this fast, and even long coding sessions are comfortable. I do miss backlit keys though... The keyboard isn't unusable in the dark, but it would certainly make an improvement.

    Amazing product

    Pairing with my late 2014 Mac Mini was a breeze. Build quality is good. No need to change batteries is a big plus. Easy to type. Coming from using a PC keyboard with my Mini, I can now use all the keyboard shortcuts properly.

    Mute button malfunction less than six months in.

    This is my second apple wireless keyboard which has had a malfunction less than a year after I purchased it. The mute button malfunctioned and constantly muted and unmuted the computer. Other keys would get stuck periodically and would send the computer into a frenzy of highlighting documents, scrolling through pages quickly, or disconnecting and reconnecting itself constantly.

    Fantastic Keyboard

    Whilst I understand that the keybed has a different feel to what many are used to, I find it almost impossible to switch back to any other board. Typing on keyboards that I used to be a fan of feels 'squishy' and requires much more extension to be certain of actuating the keys. The size and look are also great. I do wish that there was a version with a ten-key available as I would happily swap out the Magic Keyboard that I keep at work with that for much better spreadsheet execution. However, for my home setup I wouldn't swap the current Magic Keyboard for anything.

    Fantastic keyboard

    I've always been a fan of apple keyboards - in general, I type 20% faster on Apple keyboards than I can type on the typical logitech, microsoft, dell keyboard, for example. This keyboard does take some getting used to due to the minimal key travel. However, for keyboardists that have a light touch or can reduce the force with which they use to press keys, this keyboard will pay tremendous dividends in terms of reduced fatigue and increased productivity and typing speed. The only downside is for people who need a numeric keypad and of course the price. But, there is no better keyboard on the market.

    Mostly good, definitely some opportunity to improve

    This is the nearly the same layout and size as my MBP's keyboard (aside from the square left & right arrow keys and slightly larger keys with slightly less space between) so it is easy for me to get used to for that reason. Of course, I purchased this keyboard for the desktop experience and not as an additional portable device. While I did have all the facts about what the likely keyboard experience would be (small and without a numerical keypad) I did still shallowly purchase it to match my other apple products it would be paired with. For now I am content with my purchase and what I do like about the keyboard is the slim design, low profile keys and "feel" of typing. What I hope apple changes in the future would be to include a numeric keypad, get a bit more space between the keys and add back lighting. Another reviewer pointed out that if this keyboard had the numeric keypad, it would force a separate trackpad to be pushed further to the side which may negatively affect the economics of using that device. That's sound logic, but as I stated before, I bought this for the desktop experience and that requires a full sized keyboard with a numeric keypad. Seems weird that I cannot buy a proper full-sized wireless keyboard or Apple branded monitor for that matter from the most well regarded computer manufacturer on the planet. Maybe it's because Apple is distracted making watches few people want or need, wireless EarPods and rumors of developing a "smart" car, yikes!
