    Love the feel

    • Written by Paul L from Shaker Heights

    I love the feel of the keyboard. I really wished that the Macbook had this keyboard.

    It works great, and it's fantastic that it works as a wired keyboard if you need it to. It even works with a PC using the wired mode! And automatic pairing is amazing.

    Nice product (don't understand negative reviews)

    • Written by Ken C from Burke

    I've never written a review before but I do value the options of others so I always read the good and the bad. The bad reviews really gave me pause in purchasing this product. Instead of buying online, I went to the store first to try it out because I didn't want to make a mistake.

    Got to the store, everything seemed fine. (I'm a software designer and spend my whole day in front of a computer working on specs and designs so obviously a comfortable keyboard is extremely important.)

    I've been using it for a week now and I have no issues. The key travel is a little less than the previous version but certainly not uncomfortable and worthy of the scathing reviews and comments on poor design.

    Personally I find it to be a well designed and I have no issues with it at all. I'm happy I got it and in the future would buy it again.

    Does what it says on the can, except perform Magic

    • Written by Stephen C from Brighton

    I'm not sure what people expect from this, I think some actually are disappointed it doesn't perform magic. It's a small keyboard, it actually feels better to it's predecessor and feels more solid. Rechargeable battery is excellent, the only thing I would say is that there's not indicator for when the keyboard it fully charged. It's easy to pair with devices. I only have it paired to my Macbook Pro, I just wanted a small keyboard for when I used my TV as a monitor. I have big mitts, and the keyboard is perfect size for me, I'm not sure why there are so comments that it's too small. I think a lot more people should actually try before buying, go to an apple store, it saves a lot of pain. Again, too many comments about noisy keys, utter rubbish. It's no noisier than using the keyboard on my Macbook. Keyboard is well made, value for money.

    Nice compact keyboard

    • Written by Gison L from Scottsdale

    I bought this keyboard to use it with my MacBook 2019. I just like to use a separate keyboard from my portable. I like the light weight and wireless feature. It communicates instantly with the portable. After getting familiar with the layout, I will say that the quality and functionality is great.
    The keys are quite low and the travel is minimal. Therefore, it took practice to use it proficiently.
    The keyboard is well manufactured and I like how long the battery charge can last.

    Best keyboard I've used

    • Written by Ben H from York

    Pros:
    - Comes with a Lightning cable.
    - Looks great, I like the thin wedge shape.
    - Simple. I hate those gaming keyboards that light up all different colors and give you a headache. This is just a silver keyboard with white plastic keys.
    - Works great. Characters appear instantly on the screen without any latency.
    - Holds a very long charge and charges very quickly.

    Cons:
    - Not backlit like the notebook keyboards are.
    - Its almost too thin, so it has the tendency to bend a little bit if you press the keys too hard.
    - The keys are thin and close together which might take some getting used to.
    - Very expensive.

    Definitely better than the last edition of the magic keyboard

    • Written by Roberta T from White Lake

    I like how low it sets and how sensitive the keys are. It feels good to the hand and forgiving to the fingers. The materials are on point and the charging feature really makes things way more convenient because I hated having to buy batteries. I actually plan on using this keyboard at work because I could get so much more done with it. I do not understand why some people hate this keyboard, I like the fact that there is no number pad because I'm not a big user of it anyways. I wonder though, would the controls be the same on a Windows PC? In all though this is my favorite keyboard by far and I'm glad my old keyboard short-circuited today.

    Fantastic Keyboard

    • Written by Steven H from Seattle

    Whilst I understand that the keybed has a different feel to what many are used to, I find it almost impossible to switch back to any other board. Typing on keyboards that I used to be a fan of feels 'squishy' and requires much more extension to be certain of actuating the keys. The size and look are also great. I do wish that there was a version with a ten-key available as I would happily swap out the Magic Keyboard that I keep at work with that for much better spreadsheet execution. However, for my home setup I wouldn't swap the current Magic Keyboard for anything.

    Love the new keyboard.

    • Written by Joseph G from Mayfield

    Others have complained about the keyboard being flat but I prefer it as it now more closely resembles the keyboard on my Macbook Pro.
    I really like the short travel to the keys and for me I find that I make fewer typing errors with it. Not having to constantly replace batteries is a real plus. The only thing that I find a little inconvenient is that I now have to press the function key to raise or lower the speaker volume but I'm assuming that is so the function keys can be used primarily as function keys. It's probably the way it should have been on the older keyboard so I got spoiled. But I am quickly getting used to it.

    love it

    • Written by Lev D from New York

    I've used this keyboard for over 2 years. I've used it's predecessor for 3 years. This one is my favorite. Without the numpad, the travel distance from keyboard to touchpad is very short and therefore very convenient. The keyboard+touchpad surface area on my small desk is small enough for a cup of coffee. Internal battery life is superb. Keys are perfect.

    Looking forward to the space gray version!

    The MacBook Pro should have this keyboard

    • Written by David K from Basalt

    This is the best keyboard I've used. I'm a loud typer and make people crazy with the sound of the last generation MacBook Pro (worse keyboard ever). I use this standalone on both my iMac and MacBook pro. Huge improvement and super fast typing. I'm not sure what additional functionality people were expecting. What you see is what you get. If you want a trackpad or a 10 key order them separately or order the huge bluetooth keyboard. APPLE, please listen and fix the cheap sound of the MacBook pro keyboard - it doesn't need to make any noise at all and in quiet meetings it is totally obnoxious.

    9/10 good keyboard

    • Written by Susan C from Springfield

    good, reliable keyboard.
    also good battery life

    I have two suggestions for the next gen magic keyboard:
    -Backlight Display
    -Little heavier

    some might not like the weightlessness, can be unsteady in certain situations ex: typing on your lap

    I love this keyboard

    • Written by Michael A from Oberlin

    While totally a matter of personal preference, I think the new keyboard is great. I prefer it to the old wireless keyboard and the keyboard on my MacBook Air and older (pre-retina) MacBook Pro. The keys feel less squishy and depress more evenly, they give a satisfying click when typed. I thought I'd be annoyed by the lower key travel, but quite the contrary—I quickly grew to like it. I also thought I'd be annoyed with the lack of elevation, but I find this more comfortable. It's more like typing on a laptop (which I've grown comfortable with), and I no longer see any reason for the keyboard to be elevated. Why should it be? Seems like one of those things we assume matters since every mediocre keyboard has some sort of elevation, but I have yet to hear a compelling argument for its being better.

    So: five stars.

    No Battery Keyboard is great

    • Written by Maureen V from DuPont

    I like the keyboard. I have been typing for many, many years. I had no issues getting used to the touch and angle of it. It is a little different than the first wireless keyboards, both the touch and the less of an angle. But no issues for me.

    Magic keyboard-5 star rating

    • Written by avrom S from Broooklyn

    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

    I like it - works very well . .

    • Written by NICHOLAS D from SCOTTSDALE

    My old trustee Apple Bluetooth keyboard, the one with batteries in it, finally started showing its signs of age and it needed to be replaced so I ordered what I thought was the same keyboard only to find that it's the new version, no batteries, connects via USB for charging, is FLAT, and has slightly different upper and lower arrow keys.

    Now I'm not an extensive typist but I type every day, reports, tons of emails, etc. so as soon as I opened the box and discovered that the keyboard was a different design and style I immediately went to the reviews and started to read them. And boy, there is no shortage of negative reviews, the keys, the keyboard, failure, you name it. I always pay attention to the negative reviews and certainly the number of negative reviews versus positive reviews.

    Well, of course all I can speak is for myself and I immediately LOVE IT! For me the typing is smoother, the keys are smoother, it just feels better and easier to use. I know that certainly is subjective but to me there's a tremendous difference between my beloved old battery keyboard and the new version. I fully expected not to like the new version but I'm pleasantly surprised.

    My advice to you is simple, try it for yourself. Not everyone has the same experience and likes the same things. For me the new keyboard is PERFECT!

    Best Bluetooth Keyboard for iOS & "Android"

    • Written by Trevor I from Stuarts Draft

    After asking around for the best keyboard for an Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S2), I was discouraged that I would not be able to find a decent keyboard. I got a used iPad Air from one of my family members and decided to switch from Android M to iOS 10. The transition was not without it's quirks, but I finally have managed to really like my new iPhone (6 Plus) and iPad Air. The Magic Keyboard, by the way, is excellent. Great feel, and amazing battery life. I have used it for a couple of hours every day for the last week, and it's still at 100%!!

    I love the fact that this keyboard works so well with iOS.

    But...... Apple has either lied or not researched the exact compatibility with various OS's. This keyboard works for Android!! Dare I say, better than iOS?
    An Apple specialist that I chatted with online said that it would not work with Android. So, now that I have bought various adapters and spent a good portion of money trying to transition from Android to iOS, and I find out that I didn't have to do so in the first place, I'm kind of ticked off.

    I could have easily got the keyboard for my Samsung tablet (Which is an amazing tablet, by the way), and given Apple my business as well.

    I think that Apple is a good company that builds great products, but someone somewhere needs to update the compatibility info for the Magic Keyboard. It does work with Android!! And, there's nothing wrong with spending $100 for an "Apple" keyboard with a "Google" Operating System.

    Great keyboard, but Apple doesn't even know their own product. And they don't tell the truth about compatibility.

    Fantastic keyboard

    • Written by David W from Chandler

    I've always been a fan of apple keyboards - in general, I type 20% faster on Apple keyboards than I can type on the typical logitech, microsoft, dell keyboard, for example. This keyboard does take some getting used to due to the minimal key travel. However, for keyboardists that have a light touch or can reduce the force with which they use to press keys, this keyboard will pay tremendous dividends in terms of reduced fatigue and increased productivity and typing speed. The only downside is for people who need a numeric keypad and of course the price. But, there is no better keyboard on the market.

    Some folks love it, some folks hate. I happen to love it.

    • Written by Desmond M from Amsterdam

    I picked one of these up about a year ago just to add a bit more Apple to my Apple ecosystem and it has been my favorite keyboard ever since. There's a lot of mixed reviews on here, and it makes sense. A keyboard is something used heavily in computing. Everyone has a different type that works for them. Some of us like flatter keys, some of us love mechanical, some of us enjoy chiclets. If you enjoy big flat keys with little travel distance and don't mind a smaller keyboard, no num pad and so on, you might enjoy this. It pairs with my Mac wonderfully and instantly unlike most other bluetooth keyboard I have used over the years. Also pairs easily with Windows, Linux and TV box machines like the Apple TV 4 and others. If you're a fan of a larger keyboard, deeper key travel and so on, this might not be for you at all. If you're like me and enjoy a keyboard of this particular type, you might really enjoy this. Unsure? Give it a try out. You might just find a new favorite.

    Excellent Product

    • Written by Richard M from SAINT-BRUNO

    I don't know why people are complaining, I just got mine, paired in less than a few seconds and like all Apple products, it just works. Upgraded from the battery powered keyboard, it was a pain in the a** replacing batteries. This one came 80% charged and took less than a couple of minutes to charge up to a 100%.
