      Small But Serious Design Flaw

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...

This is my third iPad and I have never had a problem with cases before. I thought they sent me the wrong case, as the box had it labeled for the iPad Pro. I took it to the Apple store, they assured me it was the correct case/keyboard. I watched 2 Apple employees at the store, not know how to put it on. They needed a third to help. It is not intuitive. I would have returned it right then and there, but I was outside the 30-day return window. I should have listened to my gut. This case does NOT stay on. Today my iPad fell from the counter with the case on...the case fell off and my iPad screen cracked. I now I have to pay $399 to replace a screen on a 2-month-old iPad. I have never cracked an iPad screen before. DO NOT BUY THIS CASE/KEYBOARD, it's a waste of money. I have never been so disappointed with an Apple product.

My only gripe is that my iPad is not protected at the back.. but otherwise this has been a lifesaver for me. A little pricey, but with its quality, I think its worth it in the long run.

      For its price, its not worth it.. does not last long..

      I loved this keyboard but right after i finished my contract on my ipad pro and now, it stopped working or having its hiccups.. after a month its done. Went to I loved this keyboard but right after i finished my contract on my ipad pro and now, it stopped working or having its hiccups.. after a month its done. Went to apple store to get it looked at. They offered me a replacement for £135. Didn't even explain whats wrong and felt like he was rushing me to finish my appointment, so i forgot to ask what could’ve been the problem! Not buying again... knowing it will only last 1 year or so..
