    Started Great but nosedived

    Loved the product at first but now it is a waste of money as it hardly ever works without rebooting 2 or 3 times.

    That said the iPad itself is not as good as my previous ones

    Keyboard leaves critical features out

    Keyboard leaves critical features out. You cannot speech dictate when the keyboard is connected and you have to disconnect the keyboard in order to dictate your messages and emails etc. the keyboard doesn’t allow you to select emoji’s so all in all I give a three.

    Frustrating beyond belief

    Works maybe 30% of the time. After 47 attempts you arrive at the magical illusive impossible to find position ...and then for no reason the device stops working again. Complete disaster in a professional setting - worst apple product I have ever owned - Steve Jobs would be rolling over in his grave if he knew about this. Complete worthless garbage. Shame on you Apple.

    Keyboard fails

    With the latest iOS update my keyboard has started to fail consistently “Device Not Supported”. If I remove it and reconnect a few times it finally works like it did prior to the iOS update. In addition, in the middle of a typing session it will stop working. There are several posts in communities on how this keyboard fails and nothing from Apple related to such discussions. This is very typical of Apple, and I would highly recommend seeking an alternative.

    In addition - this keyboard does not have any means of backlighting, which several competing products have.

    Love this keyboard!!

    The are some bad reviews on this. Ignore them. I get it some have had one which may not have laid flat, but they do. In fact, I’m typing this review using mine. If you get one that doesn’t, exchange it. I’m really happy that I bought mine!!

    Very Happy I did not listen to the Reviews

    I have had my Ipad Pro with Smart Keyboard for over 2 months, the Keyboard makes the Ipad amazing. I was at the beginning very skeptical because of all the negative reviews. I decided to ignore them and purchase the Smart Keyboard anyway. The Keyboard has worked perfectly, I find it very hard to believe some of the reviews. I can only strongly recommend the Keyboard it really adds to the experience of the Ipad.

    Nice and light

    I'm pleased with this keyboard. I find it easy to type on and it's very light. I like that I don't have to charge it separately. I also like that there is no lag time before I can start typing on it, as there was with my old bluetooth keyboard. It would be nice if it also allowed using the iPad in portrait orientation, and had a pocket for an apple pencil.

    Great Product but small-ish keys

    Bought this recently, and can honestly say I’m very pleased with it. Tactile surface and great key response. Only downfall is that the keys could have a bit more surfaces area, as they’re on the smaller side.

    The perfect addition!

    This unique keyboard is a true delight! It takes a little adjusting from using normal keyboards but soon you’ll get in the swing of using it. Typing is efficient and quick. Once you get your head around setting the keyboard to your iPad, you’ll be flipping it out in no time. The feel of the key board panels are nice and smooth, only draw back would be the back space not being quick enough when going back on text. Other than that I am enjoying using the iPad Pro and this keyboard very much!

    A must-have for iPad Pro users

    If you have an iPad Pro you really need to get a keyboard. Pairing this with your iPad really turns it into a laptop replacement. The feel of the keys are great, despite being small, I find it enjoyable to type on. My only complaint is there is no way to tell the state of the caps lock. The cover folds into various positions to allow for laptop style typing, up-right movie watching, or horizontal drafting table position. Being magnetically secured it easy to remove and attach. I like reading without the extra weight / bulk of a cover.

    I purchased the 10.5 iPad Pro this week along with the Smart Keyboard. Even after reading the reviews here, I still wanted to give it a try. Granted, it’s only been a week, but I absolutely LOVE my keyboard. It’s slim, and the keys feel so comfortable making my typing experience more enjoyable. I actually type faster using this keyboard. Unlike other comments, it lays flat without problem and connects immediately. I rated it 4 stars for lack of protection for my iPad back and loud keys. I love the feel of the keys, but I’m going to be pretty conspicuous in meetings with my loud typing...lol. I just ordered a 3rd party slim, clear cover for the back compatible with the Smart Keyboard. Overall, I’m extremely pleased. I’ll update this review periodically after I’ve used it more.

    Great so far..

    When I bought my iPad Pro I also bought the keyboard, but sent it back as I hated the lack of protection for the back of the tablet. So I bought a complete case similar to the Smart Case Apple used to make for my previous iPad Air.

    I still wanted a keyboard so bought a Bluetooth keyboard and case, but that made the whole thing just too big and heavy, not acceptable at all.

    I then discovered a back case cover designed to work with the Smart Keyboard so bought this keyboard again. This makes a much more satisfactory ensemble, and so far all is sweetness and light.

    I still think this is well overpriced, but the convenience of not having to charge it is very clever. Getting it into typing position is a bit of a juggle, but once mastered it’s OK. I needed to set up the fingerprint ID to work with both thumbs as the home button/sensors can be the right or left depending how you use it, but at least iOS gives you the extra ‘digits’.

    What a waste

    We brought this expensive keyboard and no protection for your ipad. I wish we got a refund and brought Logitech instead. This product is overpriced. Most of my stuff are apple but this one is a failure. No pen holder either.��

    Much better products out there

    The Smart Keyboard looks nice but there are much better products out there. I have the logi by Logitech and it is much better at a lower price. It has full protection for your iPad Pro. More comfortable realistic keys with a Smart Connector.
    Apple, if you are going to charge more for your products, at least make them better. Even the Apple Store sales people think Logitech is better.

    Great slim Smart Keyboard case with a few compromises

    The keyboard is slim, light and functional. Very easy to use and has a strong magnetic attachment. For the price of $160, Apple could have at least made the keyboard backlit. That’s a bad apple on their part. In addition, a variety of color options would have been nice to match the different color iPads. The downfall of its slim profile is that the keyboard case does not fully cover the iPad from falls leaving the back and edges exposed. If you intend to use this as a case for your iPad, look elsewhere. Logitech and Brydge both sells keyboard/case combination for far less and provides more features for the money. A great keyboard with a few compromises...

    Fittingly, I write this review using the product in question.

    Excellent quality and feel out of the box, neatly presented as you would expect. Arrives essentially without instructions, which is testament to its straightforward operation – a strong magnetic connector pairs the keyboard with the iPad instantly, providing everything it requires and freeing you from any need to charge the thing independently. Both of its sanctioned positions (upright, with and without keyboard) are easy to get in and out of, and provide a solid footing and tolerable working angle.

    It’s interaction with the software (on screen) keyboard is well thought out and intuitive – the software automatically hides itself when you’re using the Smart Keyboard as you’d expect, but handily reappears when you want to use emoji etc. Hold ⌘ to view keyboard shortcuts for the current app. ⌘ + space to open Spotlight on the Home Screen makes it easy to jump to apps without needing to poke at the screen.

    I find the keyboard itself pleasant enough to type on. It certainly has more travel and click than I had anticipated considering its form. I’ve tried it out on a table, on the floor, in bed and on my lap – all painless enough, though you might expect to miss a key or two on the softer or more uneven surfaces, as the plastic construction and ‘hinged’ assemblage does have some give in it.

    All around a solid device that makes a great productivity-boosting addition to iPad Pro. A star docked for its lack of a place to put Apple Pencil, and for being a touch heavier than would be ideal. A little pricy too but, provided it lasts the test of time, a cost that I expect to be repaid by its contribution to versatility and convenience.

    Makes the iPad a different device

    I thought I'd just use this cover when traveling without my computer. It turns out I'm hooked. I use it all the time and the keyboard works great when I need one. When I don't, the extra weight hasn't inconvenienced me much. In short, this cover has turned my iPad into a terrific ersatz computer.

    What a great keyboard

    It is great to use all of the time, it is very thin and easy to carry around.

    Does not work

    I have had this less than 9 months before it ceases to recognise the iPad - or vice versa without reboots and prayers. It is inconsistently rubbish which is perhaps worse than always rubbish. Buy a 3rd party solution instead.
