      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...

      Best accessory

I am using my iPad so much more than I did previously, because I have a keyboard that does NOT require recharging and on which touch-typing is easy. As yet, I’ve had no connection problems mentioned by other users, and there is absolutely no problem with changing orientation. It is true that there is no back cover on it, and I have forked out almost $100 for one... but I still feel it is worth it, and it was something I knew when I made the purchase. Thus far, this is a great piece of equipment for me.

      Underwhelmed.

      Spotted it on display at COSCTO, and I figured that since it came from Apple, I just had to have it. Bad decision. Was first of all very disappointed that the k Spotted it on display at COSCTO, and I figured that since it came from Apple, I just had to have it. Bad decision. Was first of all very disappointed that the keys are not backlit. Or did I miss something. How come so many third-party keyboards come with backlighting? Secondly, no back protection. It's bad enough that Apple won't include at a minimum a simple vinyl cover for basic protection with the original iPad, instead you expect us to pay $30 to $100 plus for a decent cover. Finally, I buy this combination keyboard/cover and there's no back protection! Returning it today. Steve Jobs is looking down on you from above and he's not happy.

We bought this product about a year ago not sure if it was the hot weather on the holiday but on the hinge side where it attached to the iPad it lost all its shape and I will not stay on properly, pretty useless after one year, waste of money.
