      Small But Serious Design Flaw

      When resting on a flat surface (e.g. a desktop or table) with the iPad seated properly, the Smart Keyboard does not lie flat. Instead, the weight of the 10.5" i When resting on a flat surface (e.g. a desktop or table) with the iPad seated properly, the Smart Keyboard does not lie flat. Instead, the weight of the 10.5" iPad tips the leading edge of the keyboard up about ¼", making it difficult to type on because the user must either hold the keyboard down on the desk or prop the iPad up from behind. Apple's legendary attention to detail seems to have failed them here. Do not buy this product unless you're prepared to hold down a keyboard that should not need holding down.

      Protection concern

      I guess I was so excited to order my new iPad that I did not look at this close enough. There is no back protection for the iPad.

I hope they plan to add a back that is compatible with the Smart Keyboard case. I have seen others question this on the site. Cant tell you how it works because my iPad won't arrive until next week. Its just the protection of the iPad that concerns me. It is quite an investment. Thank you

      New iPad Pro 10.5 Smart Keyboard

      So I was under the impression that the 10.5 version of the Smart Keyboard would have a redesigned key layout; this is not the case--the key layout is identical So I was under the impression that the 10.5 version of the Smart Keyboard would have a redesigned key layout; this is not the case--the key layout is identical to that of the 9.7 version. The picture for this product is a blatant, if not strategic, misrepresentation of what you will receive. SMH...

      Scrapped up the side of my iPad

      Had it 18 mo. It hardly connects anymore and the magnetic part now has no rubber protection, so the side of my iPad is totally etched. Just found out that the 9 Had it 18 mo. It hardly connects anymore and the magnetic part now has no rubber protection, so the side of my iPad is totally etched. Just found out that the 9.7 and the 12.9 have extensions to their warranty and the 10.5 doesn’t. So ridiculous as they are all made the same and the ALL FAIL!!!!!! Do no buy. Terrible waste of money but also terrible for the environment as it’s basically a disposable keyboard. Shame Apple.

      disposable

      I've had two - each lasted about a year. It's just not well made.

      Great Product

      Had both iPad Pro and Smart Keyboard for about a year, not one single issue...
