Apple has a support note that says it does, so maybe mine was defective or there are software bugs that need fixing. But whatever the reason, it did not work, in two important ways:
1. It would go to sleep after 45 seconds of no typing, and then the next thing you type would lose the first couple of characters. Pauses that long when you are tapping, swiping, reading, thinking, on the phone, etc. happen a hundred times a day, which means the keyboard constantly fails to type.
2. Fn-Delete (forward delete) does not work. Just does nothing.
I have heard the issues are the same for any iPad, not specifically the Pro.
Apple's previous-generation wireless keyboard did not have the sleeping problem, but forward-delete still failed (but differently: it brought up the Emoji at the same time it was deleting--sounds like a software bug to me).
