      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...

      From Great to Terrible in 14 months

The magnets do not co Just read many reviews and have to echo the words and sentiments of those who found it to be a great keyboard for a short period of time. The magnets do not connect and I find myself going back and forth between the iPad screen keyboard and the detachable screen and cover. I have tried cleaning the magnets, taking the iPad out and replacing very carefully - nothing works. Lately it has begun skipping and advancing several lines, or getting hung up on a key and continually typing it on the screen until I have to get out of whatever screen I am in. I like to work or play games on my iPad in bed late at night sometimes, but now it will only connect with the keyboard if it is on a hard space and completely stationary. I love the fact that I do not have to recharge it, and it is light in weight. Oh, one other thing is the sound of the keys when I tap on them. If one has fingernails it makes a loud, clicking noise that is distracting. Was hoping they’d come out with something better, but alas...

      Not built to last

I’m not a heavy user and this keyboard stopped This keyboard could be great - but there are a ton of examples where it stopped working after less than a year. I’m not a heavy user and this keyboard stopped working several months after I purchased it with my new iPad Pro. I spent a ton of time trying everything I could to fix it, but ultimately I was left with a $160 bulky and non-functional cover. After hearing that Apple is offering an extended 3 year repair program, I waited an hour at the Genius Bar (originally quoted 10 minutes) for the tech to spend 30 seconds looking up the serial number and tell me that it is not covered under the repair program. Apparently Apple extended the warranty for all but the 10.5 size keyboard - even thought the 10.5 keyboard is exhibiting the same issues. The tech said I could buy a replacement at a “reduced cost” of $135. Frankly, while I really liked the keyboard, I could not see paying the exceptionally high price tag a second time for a product that potentially wouldn’t even last a year. I am a long time Apple customer and I pay the premium for Apple products due to their reputation for high quality. I’m extremely disappointed in the quality and support I received.

      This apple “Smart” keyboard self-destructs & turns into landfill garbage

      My apple “Smart” keyboard for ipad worked great for the first 8 months. Then it began disconnecting while I was writing, Then it began ERASING whole paragraphs My apple “Smart” keyboard for ipad worked great for the first 8 months. Then it began disconnecting while I was writing, Then it began ERASING whole paragraphs of my writing, with no way for me to recover my work!!! Cleaning the connections had no effect on it. I am extremely disappointed in Apple for selling me an expensive disposable keyboard with a short life expentancy. Apple should at least replace these defective products. AVOID!
