    Great, except for the arrow keys

    Fantastic keyboard. It's very nice to have similar keyboards when switching from my MacBook Pro (2016) to my iMac. Both now suffer form the same problem, the arrow keys. If you use arrows at all, the change in the hight of the right/left keys makes it very difficult to feel one's way around. I assume apple did this for aesthetic reasons. Someone didn't like the appreance of "blank space," so now the right and left arrows match the combined height of the up/down arrows. Looks fine, but its a deal breaker... if you use arrows.

    Apple Junk

    fn key won't work so volume keys are useless. I am running Snow Leopard on my iMac and this keyboard won't work properly. Apple can't even make their keyboards work any more. What has happened to this company that they can no longer do the basics.
    If you ignore that problem you have the problem of it being rechargeable, but with no way to change the battery. This is another way for
    Apple to gouge their customers. If you want wireless over time, you're going to have to keep buying keyboards just for a new battery.
    I'm now looking in thrift stores and online for older Mac keyboards. Steve Jobs keyboards. Tim Cook can't make a keyboard that works with my Macs. I got this with my used 24" iMac. I would not have bought it.

    I have used this keyboard everyday for around six months and it feels great to type on. I have used it not only with my Mac but my iPad also whilst in college. I would definitely recommend to anyone who does a lot of writing. The only issue is that the Caps lock key isn't the best as you have to press slightly harder than the others.

    Apple continues to disappoint

    An APPLE user for over 20 years. Why does apple continue to make products worse and worse. The scissor mechanism is awful, Plain and simple. APPLE, you took a great product and destroyed it.

    Please recall

    This keyboard is not ergonomic and will cause a lot of pain for lot of people. People with carpal tunnel syndrome have a lawsuit on their hands. Please swap the keyboard and mouse for a regular keyboard & mice.

    Love it

    I've have this keyboard for a while now and it's always a pleasure to type on. I actually really appreciate it that there is no number pad.

    Fantastic—but ruined by arrow keys.

    I love everything about this keyboard with one exception: the up and down arrow keys are condensed to the size of one key. I've tried painstakingly to adjust to the change, but I can't do it. Sadly, I have to find an alternative. If you use arrow keys often, I highly discourage this keyboard.

    Magic keyboard-5 star rating

    This keyboard has so much eased my typing like never before... I really think it's a wonderful product & pays out every dollar!! It carries a list of conveyances, but the number 1# upgrade I found in this keyboard is its flat keys making it so much easier to move on typing
    I recommend this product very strongly

    Great Buy For People Wishing To Use TWO keyboards to type a simple sentence

    I purchased two of these in the last few years. Why? Because the first one broke, then I purchased the standard keyboard - it also quit working, went back to the magic keyboard and now am using it to write this email along with my little character viewer. You might not be familiar with this cute little keyboard that can pop up on your screen, but if you buy one of these you'll get to know it well. What you have to do is....type the letters that work on your magic keyboard, stop...look for your little keyboard on the screen, and then type using that for the keys that don't work on your expensive replacement keyboard. I suppose if you are looking for a challenging brain, hand coordination activity this is the perfect product for you, otherwise it is an absolute as* pain.

    Very happy

    I have been using both versions of the Magic keyboards and after 6 months i must say i think the newer model is much better. Key are responsive and have a great feel.

    It does take a bit to get use o but if you can stick with it then i think you will be very happy using this keyboard.

    One thing i would like to see is a bigger version with the number pad added to it.

    It just works

    I'm not sure why this thing has such mixed reviews because mine works flawlessly and it is why I keep buying Apple products. They just work. It's the same size as the keyboard on my 15" MacBook Pro so I'm already used to the size. I bought it with the mStand that is also sold on here and now it feels as if I have a desktop computer but I get to keep my portability. 10/10 would recommend.

    Falls WAY short of expectations

    As other reviews have stated, this keyboard feels like using a cheap laptop keyboard. Honestly, the keyboard in my Early 2011 MBP felt more solid than this. With moderate pressure it bows in the center. The quality of this keyboard does not match the iMac that it came with.

    It is okay

    It works perfect with my Ipad pros most of time, except in the notes.

    Pairing with the ipad the caps lock key becomes the one used to change the typing. That means it is not convenient to capitalize letters on the ipad.

    But it is much better than smart keyboard, and more beautiful.

    Hopefully, there is a delicate keyboard case for it. It would be very popular.

    Love it...

    I just wrote one of these for my magic mouse 2 so on to the magic keyboard. I recently built a home office since I returned to college to finish my degree. I don't take technology purchases lightly and even though I read some bad reviews on here i went to the apple store and tried this out along with the mouse. Im using it on a MacBook air 13 inch with I7 processor that I have had for a year and it works flawlessly. The battery life is awesome just like the Mouse and I spend a huge amount of my day on here with online college classes, work, shopping, bills etc. As for the battery life I do not understand the bad reviews at all. It holds a charge for quite awhile. I also don't agree with the reviews on the size of the keyboard. It is the exact same size as my MacBook Air's keyboard, literally, except the keys are just a hair bigger but not truly measurable except with a mic. So I guess if your used to those sprawling huge keyboards of HP and the like it might seem smaller, but it you own a Macbook it is not. Grab one at the apple store and compare it yourself. Connecting it to my MacBook was the same as the mouse, just turn it on and turn on bluetooth=DONE. Dont listen to the bad reviews, it is awesome.

    Form over function, but I love that!

    This keyboard isn't backlit, doesn't have a numpad, doesn't have crazy travel distance or anything like that.

    But it does look very sleek! I used to have a Logitech G710 and I loved that thing, but for some reason I keep coming back to this keyboard.

    Yes, on paper it's a worse keyboard. But it's so sleek and elegant, I can't help but love it.

    Plus the perfect bluetooth and half a year battery doesn't hurt!

    A step backward

    As always, nice basic design and aesthetic, but...

    Ergonomics are terrible. Lies TOO FLAT, key spacing is TOO CRAMPED and both of these cause user fatigue and incessant typos. Also, why eliminate the numbers pod/area on the far right of the keyboard?? Who wants a separate peripheral just to input numbers? Although the late 2013 Keyboard was flat, it's got a slight angle, the keys are spaced better and there's a conventional numbers pod, so I went back to that one.

    Just terrible....

    It lies perfectly flat on the table and tweaks my wrists when I use it. Because it's so small, I am constantly missing keys.

    What's the point of an external keyboard that's no bigger than my MacBook's?

    Amazing quality, worth the price. Does have one small issue though!

    I bought this because I wanted to start using my macbook pro as a workstation connected to a couple of external monitors. I was using a old USB external keyboard, so I decided to get the Magic Keyboard to compliment my apple set up.

    First of all, the build quality is great. The keyboard is lightweight, but feels very solid. Once its on my table, it feels planted and doesn't move around. The keys feel great and are a joy to type on. The power button has some weight to it so I know it won't accidentally flip ON when I have it moving around in my backpack. Battery life seems pretty good. It seems to drop about 3-4% after a day's use (about 8 - 10 hours). Plus, the lightning cable (included) makes charging painless.

    There is however one small issue and it isn't really a fault of the product. Occasionally I am noticing some lag when I try to type. It might take a second or so for a key press to register but then its fine again. I believe this is due to the fact that I am living in an apartment and I am surrounded by 50+ wireless networks. There is a huge amount of interference from various 2.4ghz broadcasts around me, so I am assuming that is causing this issue. I tried using the keyboard at work where there isn't as much interference besides a couple of networks and a few phones, and it didn't have any issues at all. So, keep that in mind. I would give this a 5/5 if it wasn't for this issue. While it isn't a big deal, it can be very annoying and I wish there was some wizardry that would have gone into remedying this problem.
