    Will do for now...

    • Written by Paul K from Apple Valley

    For now, this will do until another vendor comes out with a better one. What I do not like:

    No caps lock light
    No backlit keys
    Cannot use voice recognition when the keyboard is activated <- BIGGEST ISSUE
    Keys on the table when opened flat

    Do not mind some complaints others have had, but the biggest is that I cannot use voice recognition.

    Had a way better one for my iPad 2 at a fraction of the price.

    Brought this along with the 11” iPad Pro - it is not secure enough! After a week of having it, my iPad slipped out and smashed.....I’ve wasted £1000 on a ‘premium’ product which I can now no longer use!! Absolutely useless!!!!

    Surprisingly Wrong!

    • Written by Brett H from Shelton

    I gotta tell you... I was more than a little skeptical of this keyboard for my 11-inch iPad Pro, mostly because I thought it would be too small and cramped to type on, and I didn't like the idea that when I wasn't using it, it would fold back on the back of the iPad with the keys exposed. But I was SURPRISINGLY WRONG about this thing! In fact, I love it. A lot. You'll be surprised to know that this is actually one of my favorite keyboards to type on now, next only to Apple's own Magic Keyboard 2. It's comfortable, I don't mind the keys being exposed on the back at all, especially since they provide protection for my iPad and, should I spill something on it while typing, the keys are protected by a sturdy lining too. Plus I've got a convenient keyboard always with me, even for those times I'm not expecting to need it. I was surprisingly wrong, and I'm pretty glad.

    Great Keyboard

    • Written by Nick A from St Helier

    Really impressed with this keyboard. It has allowed my iPad Pro 11” to truly be a laptop replacement. It does t bulk out the iPad and keeps the iPads small profile. Lovely to touch type on, has a great feel to it. The two positions work perfectly, and allows stable typing whilst on my lap, which was something I was worried about, but it does the job. It provides protection to screen and back whilst travelling. It attaches and detaches so quick and easily without the fuss of other products. I’m really impressed with the device it’s met my expectations and then some. I know some think it’s pricey, but given the quality, it’s performance and overall stylish design I think it is worth it and allows my iPad to become a true laptop replacement and a great road worrier. Highly recommended on all levels.

    Not worth the money

    • Written by Donald M from Gilbert

    I was so excited when I receive my new iPad Pro 11. I had high hopes where the keys to revive protection for my new iPad. I was wrong. The case has a couple of flaws. One, no protection for the sides of the device. Two, the case when closing at the magnet that holds the iPad in place is not strong enough to maintain its attachment to the case and the iPad will fall out. So far my iPad has fallen to the ground three times. All I can say is you would be better off taking the money you would spend on this case and burn it. Sorry Apple but it’s time for you to go back to the drawing board.

    Do not Buy, it will wreck your screen

    • Written by Will H from Wallsend

    £179 for the pleasure of having my screen scratched when the keyboard is closed. That’s over £1000 down the drain. A problem that would have been dealt with I’d it was shipped with a screen film or protector but of course the iPad Pro apparently doesn’t need one... very poor deign flaw! Ruined iPad!

    The outside or backside due to its texture is hard to wipe clean?

    • Written by Robin D from Milwaukee

    Disappointed that the smart keyboard folio doesn’t have a special shiny coating to help with the fingerprints, sticky fingers, etc Have to wipe it clean more often but somtetimes iit still looks dull and dirty. I would like to see a clear type of case to go over the smart follio part to help reduce the issues with keeping it clean. A shiny glossy type textuere is alot easier to wipe clean vs one that has a dull finish! The perfomance is fine but flaw of the outer backside makes it look ugly. Somtimes the magnegts don’t always hold and it falls out of the case.

    The best keyboard-case combo you can buy.

    • Written by Stephen H from Orange

    This is the best keyboard folio you can buy. It's fits perfectly and, more importantly, it fits snuggly. Too many other folios have too much play and tip over/slide around. Not this one.

    The only reason I didn't give it 5 starts is that at $180, it's priced about $50-$60 too high.

    Ignore the 1-2 star reviews. Clearly those individuals need to buy a MacBook Air, not a tablet with a keyboard portfolio attachment. Pro tip: The iPad Pro 11" is not a notebook and it never will be.

    Good keyboard, but need to be careful !

    • Written by Johan K

    Good keyboard, but need to be careful because it is easy to detach your iPad from your keyboard.
    My iPad has been detached from keyboard and the glass is broken (no warranty for the glass).
    Apple need to modify and make the keyboard not easy to detach from iPad

    Beats me why all the negative reviews

    • Written by Marvin P from LOS ANGELES

    I just bought one for my 11.9 iPad Pro. I liked it so much I went back and bought another for my 12.9 iPad Pro. First of all the keyboard is great. I mean to be so slim and compact it provides a great feel. I’m a touch typist and a harsh critic of keyboards. I did not have any trouble with it whatsoever. Second it’s thin. It’s almost as thin as the folio with no keyboard. So it fits in my backpack nicely. Third it feels well made. I noticed some people complained about it feeling cheap. Not so. It feels seamlessly fabricated. Could I HULK out and rip it to pieces? Sure, but I don’t think I have to worry much about that. Next it works. Automatically. No Bluetooth pairing. It just worked, to coin a phrase. Next I noticed that many people complained about not having keys that light up. I suppose if that sort of thing entertains you it can be very important, but give me a break. The screen lights up the keyboard if you need it. If you’re on the Internet a lot, you’ll find that it can become a big old echo chamber. Most of the negative reviews here echo each other. It’s almost as if there’s a script. I dunno. My only complaint is the price. But that’s Apple. So if you’re considering one of these devices, I recommend ignoring all of the reviews and heading down to the Apple Store. Sit down and try it out. You’ll see it’s actually a well made little accessory.

    Keyboard is nice, but offers no protection for 3 sides.

    • Written by ALLEN C from HACIENDA HEIGHTS

    Keyboard is functional and thin and now battery needed. But it offers no protection for 3 sides and all four corners. The iPad pops out almost every time when I pull it off the keyboard to close, once it pops out it's thin and slippery and it may fall to the ground (like I did, all four corners are damaged). I regret getting this.

    • Written by Bonnie C from Calgary

    This keyboard case doesn’t protect the iPad on the sides. Without strips, iPad can easily slip outside the case and drop. I broke the screen and dented the corner because my iPad slipped outside the case twice in a month. Product design should not comprise safety for style
    If you like this keyboard, I suggest to buy an extra protective case.

    Not worth the price (even if cost half what it does)

    • Written by Gary K from Acworth

    I bought this for my new 11" iPD Pro because nothing else was available. This is better than the first gen which I had on my original 12" iPad Pro but still leaves too much to be desired to justify the cost. The cover/keyboard sacrifices protection for thinness and lightness. The back does not stay on. Every time I try to fold or unfold the iPad the back pops off. You need bright light to see the keys. I wish I had taken it back and gotten my money back within the grace period. I will be getting the Logitech case/keyboard when it becomes available (with backlit keys).

    Great keyboard — other reviews are overly critical

    • Written by Devon T from Blacksburg

    This is exactly what I want in an iPad keyboard. Minimalistic enough to feel like you’re still using a tablet vs MacBook Air, no Bluetooth pairing required, and large enough to be comfortable to type on.

    There are also plenty of iterations from the previous design that make this keyboard even better. The back protection is a huge benefit to have. Not only does it provide additional protection for the device, but it also makes the device feel more like the portfolio feeling I like from alternatives. Also, the deeper/more defined wells where the bottom of the iPad rests make for less slipping which is nice.

    It amazes me that the reviews here put this keyboard at 2.5 stars and on every other outlet (Best Buy, Amazon, etc...) place the device at 4.5+ stars with even more reviews. I firmly believe that if this exact keyboard had the name “Logitech” on it instead of “Apple,” it would be rated 5 stars easy. Apple products just undergo way more scrutiny than any other base of electronics on the market.

    TLDR; Buy this. You’ll be happy with it.

    Great WHEN it works!

    • Written by Jacqueline F from Eau Claire

    I loved this for the first several months. Then it would quit working and I would wipe off the contacts and restart the iPad and all would be well for a short time. Now it has totally quit responding. I have had it about 1 1/2 years.

    Decent case but cover is starting to wrinkle

    • Written by Jeff H from Toronto

    The functionality of the case is okay, but the pencil sticks on the side and is not covered. it’s pretty easy to have the pencil get knocked off and makes it awkward to hold. Also, the cover is starting to wrinkle just simply from holding it which is a bit annoying. Overall, it’s really the only case we can choose from that isn’t third party.

    Cardinal Design Flaw

    • Written by Chris H from Charlotte

    If a keyboard case’s design has the keyboard resting on my iPad’s beautiful screen (which will lead to screen scratching through normal use) then the design is a complete failure. This case fails the test. Apple needs to redesign.

    Needs a backlight

    • Written by JEFFREY M from San Francisco

    Why on earth Apple created this keyboard and did not make it backlit I will never know. It’s a great keyboard as long as you don’t ever need to use it on airplanes at night or in any dark setting. In other words, you will not be able to use this keyboard 50% of the time. It needs a backlight.

    as bad as it gets!

    • Written by Doman G from Düsseldorf

    no real protection, no pencil cover up which makes holding the iPad while Pencil is attached awkward,not backlit, no real tactile. and extremely expensive!
    you can't really design a worse keyboard even if you absolutely go for it!!! 1 star since 0 is not an option!
