      Small But Serious Design Flaw

Instead, the weight of the 10.5" iPad tips the leading edge of the keyboard up about ¼", making it difficult to type on because the user must either hold the keyboard down on the desk or prop the iPad up from behind. Apple's legendary attention to detail seems to have failed them here. Do not buy this product unless you're prepared to hold down a keyboard that should not need holding down.

      Protection concern

I hope they plan to add a back that is compatible with the Smart Keyboard case. I have seen others question this on the site. Cant tell you how it works because my iPad won't arrive until next week. Its just the protection of the iPad that concerns me. It is quite an investment. Thank you

      New iPad Pro 10.5 Smart Keyboard

      So I was under the impression that the 10.5 version of the Smart Keyboard would have a redesigned key layout; this is not the case--the key layout is identical So I was under the impression that the 10.5 version of the Smart Keyboard would have a redesigned key layout; this is not the case--the key layout is identical to that of the 9.7 version. The picture for this product is a blatant, if not strategic, misrepresentation of what you will receive. SMH...

Got in contact with Apple support and was better off not even wasting my time. Save your money and get a different brand keyboard.

      Jony Ive should be ashamed of this design

      It's mystifying why this failure-prone product has remained on the market for so long. Seriously, Apple, given your sterling overall quality reputation, why are It's mystifying why this failure-prone product has remained on the market for so long. Seriously, Apple, given your sterling overall quality reputation, why aren't you ashamed of this dud? My wife and I have had two 10.5-in. keyboards fail, one just after the one-year warranty and the second recently at a year and 10 months. Fool me once, Apple, shame on you. I got conned into replacing the first at an Apple Store for another $159, but - this second time there'll be no shame on me - I won't be fooled twice. I've found a keyboard for $55. With a year of life expectancy, I can live with that. This keyboard isn't worth any more.

      Poorly built product

      I take excellent care of all phone and computer devices, but this keyboard has failed to live up to its promise... It worked well for a while, but now that I’m I take excellent care of all phone and computer devices, but this keyboard has failed to live up to its promise... It worked well for a while, but now that I’m out of warrantee, it fails to be recognized by my iPad Pro 2 or 3 times/day. A hard restart will usually get it going again, but this is time consuming and frustrating. After reading this very long list of complaints about the same issue, I’m extremely annoyed and disappointed with Apple for failing to back an over priced, poor quality product. I’ve been an Apple user for years, but am getting pushed in the other direction by high prices and quality issues.
