      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...

I tried to service the product but they don't repair these keyboards. Genius Bar and Customer Service were totally inefficient. I had to wait for almost an hour to get accurate information.

      Buggy for an Apple product.

      Oddly, this keyboard is weirdly buggy. Out of the blue it stops responding and I must detach then reattach it to my iPad. Likewise, it will get stuck on a key a Oddly, this keyboard is weirdly buggy. Out of the blue it stops responding and I must detach then reattach it to my iPad. Likewise, it will get stuck on a key and keep repeating it until I detach then reattach it again. At first I thought it was dirty or worn contacts but the contacts are clean and make a solid connection. I made the mistake of outfitting my whole department with these and more than half report the same issues. This is sad because the form factor is great. They keyboard is light, slim and quiet. When it works, typing is accurate, too. But dang is it buggy. I would use caution if buying it and needing for for real work. Yet again, another Apple product that suffers from the loss of their amazing leader. This seems to be a recurring theme with almost all products. Even a simple keyboard is not safe from lack of attention to detail. Luckily, the few Logitech keyboard that we have swapped out for work very well.

      Frustrated

      Here I have a keyboard that won’t connect or ‘isn’t being recognized’ by my iPad, not even a year old. iPad Pro 10.5 is a beast with this keyboard, thin light, Here I have a keyboard that won’t connect or ‘isn’t being recognized’ by my iPad, not even a year old. iPad Pro 10.5 is a beast with this keyboard, thin light, perfect. I am very gentle with my Apple products (I have a 2008 iMac and 2011 MacBook Pro that are nearly mint). This product has an issue it might as well be ‘smart connector gate’ or at least part of the ‘Apple Keyboard’ gate. Given as a gift to go back to school, so I did not receive bill of sale. I understand they can’t just have people busting up stuff and replacing it, but this product wears out so quickly. I had a Smart Cover for 2 years on my last iPad that looks newer than this thing. This month it decided to stop working. Called Apple, the person who helped me was very nice, but kept asking questions that made me question if he knew the product line. Brought me to another Specialist who I think hung up on my cause they were frustrated. Not pleased.
