    Feels good, but never sat right from the start

    The case itself is fine. The keyboard feels good. What is horrible is when put in keyboard mode, the horizontal part (the whole keyboard) never set flush against the surface it is sitting on, the front edge sits 1/4 above the surface. Which leads to not really being able to type efficiently or at all because it wiggles the whole time. It makes it nearly unusable for me. I didn't mention it or take it back because I thought it was just a normal thing. Until my mother in law got one and hers sits flush. Huge difference! I guess I just got a bad nut.

    So Far So Good

    I love the keyboard so far. I read all of the reviews, and bought it. Granted, it's only been a month. I had the IPad Pro smaller version before I upgraded to the new Pro 12.9. Yes, it is missing a spot to secure the pencil, but I didn't let that sway me. I have a nice case to hold it or a strap to attach it if I want to. I do wish there was a back cover and a number pad. What I really miss, in case anyone at Apple reads these, is a backlight function. I do a lot of nighttime reading/typing and would love that. Unless it is here and I am missing it. But so far it connects immediately, I've not had any issues there, it's light, keys are easy to use. Maybe the next one will have a little scroll pad on it haha, then I would probably never use my laptop again.

    "Device not supported"

    7 months old and no longer works. Keyboard gets hi-jacked. Concept was awesome, but execution epic fail... I expect more for what I paid for this. Looking for a more reliable replacement.

    I defraud myself

    It's the worst investment I've ever made, I've had to change it for two months and pretty much the same thing. Life time 9 months. Nor is it worth this keyboard. It did not meet my expectations disappointed me.

    Stopped working :(

    Really loved this at first, yes it was great. But I've now had it for over a year and its now only a very expensive flip case. Doesn't even work with Apple services anymore. Totally dead. For the money i would have thought it would last longer. Extremely disappointed, will not be buying a replacement.

    Rapid deterioration in fit with the iPad Pro ....

    ... over the past few months. This keyboard is now highly unreliable. Apart from inconsistent messaging - sometimes it comes up sometimes it doesn't - saying it is not suitable for the device and allowing use of the screen keyboard only, it has also developed an inconsistent tendency to back-delete as if the button were being held down. The only way not to arrest its progress as it deletes text is to back out and save the document as fast as possible. In short, don't buy this until Apple can categorically assure you that these problems have been fixed.

    Love the keyboard and the pencil

    I write novels and I love the keyboard. I can now write anywhere. I use the pencil to make notations and scribble ideas when I'm proofreading. I can't say enough about how easy the keyboard and the pencil are to use and how much easier writing has become for me.

    Very unreliable

    Started off loving this keyboard. Simple and elegant. However after using it for a while it keeps breaking down and every 3-5 minutes I get an error on the screen saying This accessory is not supported. Seems there are lots of similar complains in the apple forums. The standard advice of cleaning the contacts does not work. This product is faulty.

    Never Buy One of These

    Broke a week before the guarantee expired. I went to the store afterwards, (my bad) and the recommendation was for me to buy a new one. Let's see, a device that never fell on the floor or something like ir, breais in less than a year and the suggestion is to buy a new one? ������ Never again. This is disposable gadget!!

    Device not supported!

    Loved the design and have all of the Apple products. This is the first product I have to tell my friends not to buy. Failed just after warrenty and I would not ever buy another one. Sorry, Apple you missed big time on this one.

    A FAST keyboard! "Like butta!"

    Given the right equipment, I type fast enough to make the keyboard smoke, and this keyboard is definitely smoking. You will find that the keys are perfectly placed for fast typing and minimal errors. The "touch" is subtle enough to seemingly read your mind. There appears to be plenty of room for large fingers.

    Now some advice. I got the iPad Pro 12.9" to be used primarily for art and photography projects. However, it has served temporarily as a stand-in while my Macbook Pro is being repaired. I didn't expect it to match the functionality of the MacBook Pro, which would be considered a real workhorse by comparison.

    But then, necessity is the mother of invention. After tweeking the setup, my iPad Pro is as functional as any laptop.

    First, I got a strong, thin board with a footprint slightly larger than my iPad and keyboard together. Then, I duct taped my iPad and keyboard all around, to secure everything into position and to eliminate shifting. This includes taping the keyboard into the correct triangular shape that props the iPad up.

    Now I can work on my iPad keyboard without limitations, even if I'm hanging upside down, no problem.

    For those who want to fold their iPads up frequently for travel, the next design steps will be theirs to develop. I've got what I need, so I'm done.

    One troubleshooting pointer: if your keyboard connection becomes intermittent, this is because the three-point connection requires the iPad and keyboard to be resting on a flat surface. If your iPad and keyboard are on your lap or are being jostled around, you'll have problems. The solution is to keep something firm and flat, right under these connections. Do this, and all should be well.

    Works perfectly

    I also agree to the guy before, don't listen to the negative reviews. I'm working with external keyboards since day 1, different manufacturers. This is by far the best one!

    EXCELLENT AND CHEAP

    I really like this keboard, it's portable for using it wherever I want. I recommend this product specially for students, as it is fast and light for all the schools task.

    I haven't experienced any trouble with this keyboard, but thats normal for nowadays technology. You may not have the same keyboard and Ipad more than a year, thats why Apple launches every year a new Ipad and keyboard.

    I am actually writing this review with the keyboard.

    Great keyboard but now having issues

    I bought this item just over a year ago. It has a great feel to the keyboard, although it did take a bit of time getting used to the flatter keys. I use it all the time for uni work and it has been great. No need to worry about the battery going dead as it runs off the iPad and the connectivity has been great.
    However since I have done the last update on my iPad I seem to be having issues every time I come to use it. It constantly gives me the message that the 'accessory is not supported'. The only way to get it to work again is by restarting the iPad with it disconnected. I really hope that this can be sorted in the next software upgrade as at this price and an apple product I would expect more

    Smart keyboard SYOPS working!

    I LOVE all things Apple, but when this keyboard just stops working for NO REASON at all and you try to have it repaired and the Apple Care just expired and well, that is TOO BAD for you! Just stops working and get an error message "device not supported" and apparently this is a problem many people have seen. Too bad, as much as I love Apple I am NOT HAPPY!
