    LOVE this case!

    • Written by Anthony R from London

    LOVE IT! Never bought a Smart Keyboard for iPad before and very glad I bought this one. So stable to use and much more fluid to type on than the on-screen keyboard. PLUS - So easy to swap for the the Smart Folio case (Apple's other 11" iPad Pro case without the keyboard) when I want to just read or watch films.

    5 Star Product at a 4 Star Price

    • Written by Robert M from Brunswick

    I love this Smart Keyboard Folio (11-inch). It provides adequate protection for me since I also use a backpack and laptop sleeve to transport both my MacBook and iPad Pro 11-inch. After using this keyboard, I am able to type on it quickly and easily with just a short period of time needed to adapt to it. I'm a touch typist and really have no complaints with the typing experience. While the outer case (front and back) are a little plain looking, the folio serves its purpose well. As my review title suggests, Apple could bring the price of this accessory down some. It does seem to be somewhat overpriced for what it is. I can't speak of long-term quality yet, as I've only owned the keyboard folio for a week, but it does seem to be sturdy and wearing well so far. Very pleased with my purchase with only some minor irritation regarding the price.

    Disappointing

    • Written by Patty J from Indianapolis

    I purchased this keypad with my iPad Pro about 18 months ago. About 5 months ago I starting having problems with it and now it is almost useless. After going into the store to have it looked it it was decided to replace my iPad as the connector seemed worn. After one more day the keypad is still not working properly. Now I need to purchase a whole new keypad- it is expensive given the short time it works. Not happy

    Mediocre Keyboard

    • Written by Adrian S from Pfaffhausen

    At least on the 11” iPad the Keyboard is not that great, do not plan on writing more than a few sentences at a time on this keyboard, if you’re a fast typer. The price is absolutly bananas too. Less key-resistance would solve the problem.

    Keyboard

    • Written by Bruce L from brecksville

    After 6 months, keyboard worked intermittently, then not at all. Cover is fraying. Called support, did not get any answers. Checked with internet support, and many others are having the same problem.

    Good until the warranty ended

    • Written by Ashlin B from Toronto

    At first I was really happy with this product as it worked very well and served quite usefully. Although a year after I bought it it stopped working and I was really upset as I coudn’t use or fix it in any way after it broke.

    An okay keyboard case

    • Written by Kris S from Birmingham

    It fits nicely with the iPad as it should since it's made by apple.
    The case has kind of sharp edges which is annoying.
    Keys aren't backlit, since I've bought this, I've had time to try a few other keyboard options that are easier to type on.
    No side protection at all which is probably my biggest annoyance.
    The build quality does not seem to justify the cost at all. Feels very cheap.
    The keys are exposed on the back when I'm just using the screen on the pad only. The case does come off very easily so it's not a huge deal.

    Not so Smart Keyboard Folio

    • Written by Michael L from Duluth

    I just purchased this product yesterday and it leaves a lot to be desired.
    Pros:
    Fit is nice, pencil can be charged wirelessly, magnets were decent (not great but held up to normal use), keyboard felt good without being cramped
    Cons:
    No side protection, cheap feeling material, shows every little mark, when folded back the keys are exposed making for a very uncomfortable feel, price point is awful

    I ended up returning this and am currently searching for something better. The old keyboard may not have had back protection but they were smart enough to cover the keyboard when it wasn’t in use. I hope Apple comes out with more options in the very near future.

    Old one was more versatile

    • Written by Hung Jane H from Hillside

    I've owned the previous gen keyboard, was skeptical at first but found it was actually really great to use. Quick and easy to fold back when keyboard not in use.

    New one is just clunky and not great for interchanging different uses quickly. Don't like that the smart connector is in a different location, makes it difficult to mix and match cases now. The keypad is the same so it still feels nice to type in, and quiet which helps during meetings.

    I ended up refunding this new keyboard it because it was such a bother to use.

    Cheap Material

    • Written by Randall M from Watertown

    The keyboard is functional. However it has some flaws. The biggest one is that the material is cheap. Didn't see this as a problem at first which other reviewers pointed out. However Ive had the case for less than a month and its already starting to tear. Very disappointed.

    OK

    • Written by Jared J from Lynnwood

    This keyboard cover is OK. My main gripe is honestly fit and finish. It doesn't have a nice premium feel to it that you expect from Apple, especially for the $200 price tag. It just feels like cheap ish plastic on the outside. And boy does it get smudges and fingerprints and shows everything. I am a clean freak so this drives me nuts. And it doesn't clean easily.

    I do like the magnetic connection - although it is not super strong. Most everyday use it is fine - and I am very gentle on my electronic devices - but it does come out fairly easily when just doing normal things with it. It can be a little annoying sometimes. I like the viewing and use angles, no huge issues there.

    I do love the keys themselves. It obviously doesn't have the feedback that a normal keyboard has, but I like it and it works great. I don't find it too cramped or small either. Typing on my lap is OK - but not as comfortable as a normal laptop. I feel like my legs have to be just enough closer together it can be uncomfortable. But not terrible.

    Getting back to my first point, I am interested to see how this case holds up over time. I don't have high hopes that it will last two years+. But time will tell.

    Just OK

    • Written by Edwin M from FLUSHING

    The only problem I have with this case is the price :( other than that I love it! Works so well and it looks much better compared to those on amazon. The Rubber-ish thing is a bit odd I would have loved a leather version for this price and then maybe it would have been worth it.The keys take a bit to get used to but it happens with everything out there. The keys feel cute after using it for a while love the fabric feel of them makes it comfy and fun. Also viewing angles are ok, mostly for desk use which I have no problem with. I would love to give it a 5 star but there’s a couple of things that by now apple should have nearly perfected,

    Overpriced and not fit for purpose

    • Written by Mauro B from Rosehill

    This was the only keyboard available at the time so I was forced to buy it for some protection with a keyboard at AUD$269
    It has NO side protection, magnets do not hold the iPad safely at all, no storage or loop to hold the overpriced pen...
    This product was designed for office use on a desk and not on the go. Have had the iPad slip out multiple times while passing the device to others and packing up after a meeting. If the iPad as some dust on the back, it get worse.
    This product should have been AUD$69 to be worth its value. Cannot wait for Logitech to come out with an 11" version as their Slim Combo for the 10.5"

    PERFECT!

    • Written by Krista S from Rochester

    Not sure why some are not pleased with this keypad, how could you not adore a case that not only protects your iPad, but also seamlessly transitions to a keyboard when needed. I love that there is no need to sync up and it just turns on and is ready to go! I am loving this folio!

    Magnetic Attachments Failed and iPad Pro Now Shattered

    • Written by Julian F from Pembroke

    I purchased the new iPad Pro and Smart Keyboard on the day it was released and was surprised to find out that the iPad was only attached to the keyboard by three small magnetic attachments on the back. These attachments have since failed several times as I was walking around the house carrying my iPad in the keyboard out setting. Today my iPad fell on marble flooring and now my screen is shattered. If you are looking for any sort of protection for your iPad - DO NOT BUY.

    Sturdy, but compromised for the sake of design purity (again) :(

    • Written by Pierre R from Woodbridge

    The new keyboard cover has serious flaws. a) No protection on the sides, b) no position to write with the pen (a major feature/reason to buy the iPad pro), c) no position that allows the iPad to stand without the keyboard sticking in front.

    The keyboard folio cover for the previous gen iPad Pro was so much more versatile and thus better, I wish Apple would sometime "compromise" design for function, at the end of the day you're selling tools/devices to be used, not to win a design context. If that's what you're into you should get into sculpture or pottery not making electronics.

    Great keyboard, but some limitations

    • Written by Anonymous .

    This is honestly a great keyboard. It works seamlessly with no setup and it protects the back of the iPad as well as that camera bump. No side protection whatsoever. You won’t have to worry about the iPad slipping out of the case. The magnets are strong and even shaking won’t dislodge the iPad. Haven’t noticed any changes to my battery so it doesn’t use much power.

    Is it really worth the hefty price tag? Probably not. But its slim and sure looks good. It changes the way you use your iPad with nifty little shortcuts. Plus, it stands the iPad up so that it feels more like a laptop than a tablet. It adds weight to the iPad and makes it feel premium but still very light. While Logitech may come out with their keyboard, it probably won’t be this thin and look this good. The keyboard is made of silicone with a fabric covering the keypads. In my opinion, this fabric feels really nice to type on, but not everybody might like it, so make sure you head down the the Apple store and try it out for yourself.

    Here are some things that I really don’t like about the keyboard: the keys are not backlit, doesn’t work on a plane, the fabric scratches really easily (just look at the demo units at the Apple store), function keys would be nice, key travel is very limited, and how long will this silicone last? Only time will tell.

    Decide not to buy the 2018 iPad Pro because of the keyboard

    • Written by William T from Edmond

    My old iPad a Apple Smart Keyboard is near perfect. The new keyboard has numerous deign issues. 1) the keyboard when folded flat leaves the keys exposed. The old keyboard had the keys protected. 2) the keyboard will not fold up and let you use in what I call theater mode (no keyboard in front and will stand by itself). You had three folding options with the old keyboard. 3) the cover does not protect the iPad. Keeps coming off if dropped.

    I use my iPad for about everything and fly with it. The new keyboard design will keep me from buying the 2018 model. Need to offer the same functionality as the pervious model to get me to buy a new iPad. I give up to much functionality.
