    The best blend of flexibility and performance

    • Written by SCOTT B from los angeles

    I've tried 3 of the top keyboards and although i like the keys better like on the Logitech and bridge Bluetooth keyboards, the UX is terrible. To be fair that is just a bluetooth constraint.

    The apple keyboard just works, i love typing on it and being able to remove it in 1 sec all with it NOT adding much weight. its the clear winner.

    Wonderful keyboard, feels great, never worry about battery.

    • Written by Michael N from East Northport

    The 10.5” Smart Keyboard is a wonderful keyboard that feels great to type on. It’s very responsive and gives a satisfying click when you press down on a key.

    You never have to worry about battery life, as you just snap it to the smart connector. This is a huge improvement over Bluetooth keyboards and is worth the premium price.

    It can be used for a display mode or for typing, depending on how you fold it. It also protects the front of your iPad from scratching when its in a bag or being carried around.

    The microfiber is soft and feels great to the touch. It also lets you rest keyboard on delicate surfaces, and when not in use, you can rest your iPad on the microfiber, when laying the iPad flat.

    The best feature of the Smart Keyboard is that there’s no holes or gaps. So you can easily remove crumbs.

    Makes the iPad 100x more useful

    • Written by Chris S from Minneapolis

    I love tablet computing for what it is, but when you add this keyboard it really opens up what can be done on it. You can realistically sit and write a paper or correspondence or actually write code, which I found possible but difficult to do using the on-screen keyboard. For me, it's transformed the iPad experience for the better, and has enabled me to travel without the need to haul around a lot of computer gear.

    I tried out a few different keyboard cases as well and found this one not only to be the most comfortable to use, but also the least prone to error. Lots of other keyboards aren't quite large enough or the keys aren't placed quite in the right place which made me have to go back and correct a lot of errant key strikes. That said, I find this keyboard to be much better than the one on my 2016 Macbook Pro (which doesn't seem right, but it is what it is.) Additionally, the Pencil will magnetically stick to the outside of the keyboard case, which is a nice happenstance if it wasn't designed that way.

    As for the reliability aspect, I bought this in June 2017 and have had almost zero issues. A few months ago it appeared to have died, but I took it off the iPad, restarted the iPad, then reconnected it after and it has been working great since. In my opinion, it's a worthwhile accessory (maybe even necessary for me at this point) although a bit expensive.

    So far so good. It’s slim and not bulky. The keyboard is responsive and makes my iPad feel like a laptop. I have to say, I was a little hesitant of buying it after reading a few negative reviews. But thankfuly, not the case with me. I also got a great price match that saved me a few bucks. I love everything about the keyboard. Highly recommend it.

    Apple Quality Design and operation - Met every expectation and more.

    • Written by Michael J from Santa Rosa

    I travel 15+ days a month and tried 3 other cheaper keyboards. You get what you pay for and this keyboard beat the others hands down for functionality - auto connection (don't have to pair with bluetooth) to iOS, magnetic/rapid connect/disconnect feature, closest to a real laptop keyboard in functionality and keyboard feel of the three I tried, and sits at a good angle (and flat on table) angle for both typing and viewing when seated at a desk. Am not sure what the negative review for not lying flat is referencing because mine lies perfectly flat?

    Very Pleased with my iPad Smart Keyboard

    • Written by Jason B from Cameron

    I rarely write a product review but for this particular product I wanted to take the time and do so. I have had my Smart Keyboard for about 6 months and I absolutely must say that it was worth the purchase. I am an Active Duty Army Officer and work on the go a great deal. The iPad with Smart Keyboard is without question a productivity enable for me. I have written complete Drafts of papers, Orders, and Briefing Slides. It is almost as effective as being in an Office with full IT Suite, but unlike being in an Office I can pickup and move within seconds. I highly recommend this product to anyone that lives/works in similar conditions.

    Surprisingly good

    • Written by Corry W from Arcadia

    Looking at the reviews for this product is somewhat disappointing, because the iPad Pro smart keyboard is actually one of the most surprisingly good Apple products I've bought in recent memory. The keyboard gives great tactile feedback - in fact, much better than any third-party tablet keyboard I've ever used - and works seamlessly with the smart connector on my iPad. I still think it's insanely expensive ($160? Really??), but nonetheless it was a more than worthy purchase for me.

    I love this product. It is a snug fit and very lightweight, and I am glad that for the iPad Pro I can use either any Bluetooth keyboard or this one, even though I see no reason to buy a Bluetooth keyboard when this one works perfectly. If you're used to typing on a laptop, the smaller key space takes a little getting use to, but overall this product is great.

    • Written by Britt L from Santa Fe

    This is in answer to “Small But Serious Design Flaw.” Which states that the keyboard does not lie flat on a flat surface and I think the reviewer mentioned a desk or a kitchen table. My thought would be to look to that surface. I am using the Smart Keyboard on a lap desk and it is completely and comfortably stable. The keyboard is small and you must adjust to that, and I’m still challenged by three or four sections I must arrange in order to view the iPad Pro and use the keyboard, but that’s probably just a failure of dexterity rather than a design flaw. I am very happy with the whole arrangement.

    New purchase

    • Written by kevin D from Mechanicsburg

    I just purchased the smart keyboard today and so far I like it better then the logitec slim combo keyboard that I returned.
    I see alot of others complaining about it ans saying do not buy it.I am happy with the keyboard so far.I may not be as tech savoy as some people but I did ask questions before I bought the smart keyboard.
    I am going to give it 5 stars.

    Exceeds expectations

    • Written by Alison S from Magherafelt

    This keyboard is simple to connect and use. I haven’t had a problem with the so-called origami design. It is responsive and I can type really quickly on it. I wasted money on a Bluetooth one and wish I had bought this one first. You get what you pay for as the adage goes.

    Works Well

    • Written by Michael F from Scottsdale

    This keyboard cover is very thin and not too heavy. It is literally barely thicker than the regular cover. I tried using a bluetooth keyboard that came with my mac and not every keystroke would create a typed character. That doesn't happen with this keyboard as it makes a direct connection to the iPad. As far as typing goes, it is what it is. It is not a full size computer keyboard. But it is easy enough and comfortable enough to type on and it is much better than typing on the iPad screen. I really like it.

    OK, so some thoughts.

    • Written by William D from Mount Holly

    The keyboard is great. Using it for a bit and it’s so nice for work on a plane. Like the feel....Yama Yama Yama and all that.

    For the complains.

    It’s not back lit. So you iPad battery does not die.
    No back protection, seriously? It’s a tool, who cares if it gets a scratch.
    Like anything it may need some breaking to lay flat.

    The complaints? Ridiculously first world problems.

    Amazing design and product

    • Written by David M from vienna

    Keyboard does exactly what its designed for... to be a functioning ultra slim ultra portable keyboard and cover in one.
    5 stars.. 2 thumbs up.
    My advice... buy the apple leather sleeve and pencil too. The leather sleeve provides the slimmest portable protection, and looks and feels spectacular. This is why you have an iPad Pro and not a laptop... slim down the baggage.

    Great keyboard

    • Written by James C from Fountain valley

    I almost didn't get this keyboard because of the reviews. But I had a business trip coming up and had to get a keyboard last minute. The keyboard worked wonderfully for my trip. I was surprised how comfortable it feels given that it's a smaller form size. I'm a Systems Administrator and typing on a pc is all I do. I type surprisingly fast and accurate using the smart keyboard, with very little mistakes. I also like how it folds up nicely over the ipad's screen, and folds backward nicely when I want to just use the ipad like a tablet. This keyboard tipped the scale when I was choosing an ipad pro vs surface pro, and I'm very happy to have made the choice to go with ipad pro with smart keyboard. Highly recommended...or you should at least try it before being turned off by other negative reviews.

    Disregard the other reviews, this is a perfect keyboard!

    • Written by Monica A from Gainesville

    I spent a lot of time shuffling through reviews to find the best keyboard for my iPad pro and this one works amazingly. A lot of the reviews say that it malfunctions, but I've had mine for months and nothing has happened so I say to disregard those reviews. It's lightweight, portable, AND detachable so you can just easily take it off if you don't want to deal with it. If I had one complaint, it would be that you can only use a specific iPad case with the keyboard. Personally, I would feel more comfortable having my iPad in a drop-proof case like an Otterbox, but it's not that big of a deal. I just carry my iPad in a sleeve.
