      Small But Serious Design Flaw

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 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...

      The perfect addition!

Typing is efficien This unique keyboard is a true delight! It takes a little adjusting from using normal keyboards but soon you’ll get in the swing of using it. Typing is efficient and quick. Once you get your head around setting the keyboard to your iPad, you’ll be flipping it out in no time. The feel of the key board panels are nice and smooth, only draw back would be the back space not being quick enough when going back on text. Other than that I am enjoying using the iPad Pro and this keyboard very much!

      A must-have for iPad Pro users

      If you have an iPad Pro you really need to get a keyboard. Pairing this with your iPad really turns it into a laptop replacement. The feel of the keys are great If you have an iPad Pro you really need to get a keyboard. Pairing this with your iPad really turns it into a laptop replacement. The feel of the keys are great, despite being small, I find it enjoyable to type on. My only complaint is there is no way to tell the state of the caps lock. The cover folds into various positions to allow for laptop style typing, up-right movie watching, or horizontal drafting table position. Being magnetically secured it easy to remove and attach. I like reading without the extra weight / bulk of a cover.

      Excellent!

      I purchased the 10.5 iPad Pro this week along with the Smart Keyboard. Even after reading the reviews here, I still wanted to give it a try. Granted, it’s onl I purchased the 10.5 iPad Pro this week along with the Smart Keyboard. Even after reading the reviews here, I still wanted to give it a try. Granted, it’s only been a week, but I absolutely LOVE my keyboard. It’s slim, and the keys feel so comfortable making my typing experience more enjoyable. I actually type faster using this keyboard. Unlike other comments, it lays flat without problem and connects immediately. I rated it 4 stars for lack of protection for my iPad back and loud keys. I love the feel of the keys, but I’m going to be pretty conspicuous in meetings with my loud typing...lol. I just ordered a 3rd party slim, clear cover for the back compatible with the Smart Keyboard. Overall, I’m extremely pleased. I’ll update this review periodically after I’ve used it more.
