Can someone share how the Chinese Pinyin keyboard would wok better than an English layout with Apple's 'virtual pinyin keyboard'?

I'm curious as to whether to get the Chinese Pinyin layout now that I work in China and am learning Chinese.

For now, I'm used to using Apple's virtual keyboard for pinyin so if someone has the Chinese Pinyin layout, can you explain the differences in how you input pinyin with this layout? Currently, Apple's virtual layout requires me to hold 'option key + corresponding letter' for the 'accent' if I wanted to type the pinyin out and not the actual Chinese characters. For instance option+e and then e = é

I have not graduated to typing actual Chinese characters yet. :(
