    Big price for bad quality

    • Written by Kaloyan A from Swansea

    Have had it only for a few days and the polyurethane already looks weird and scratched up and the edges are weird and imperfect. My partner has the 10.5 Pro and his has threads sticking out of the fabric edges.. that’s just ridiculous

    Would absolutely not recommend for the price.

    Worked great...for about a year

    • Written by Mark W from Hayward

    I really thought this was a good keyboard/folio case. However after a year, it started going berzerk. Stopped working, only worked occasionally, and also cause my iPad Pro's battery to drain fast. I had to stop using it. Now I am ordering another non-apple keyboard for my iPad Pro. Will see how that one works.

    I would stay away from this one, however. It's very expensive (1.5x the price I paid for the replacement) and unreliable. I think it would work better if I had not used it in bed and only used it on a desk or something, but that just doesn't seem practical.

    Steer clear!

    Doesn't hold onto the IPAD AT ALL

    • Written by Shannon R from Cheyenne

    I was excited to get this for my new iPad, but it has no ability to hold the iPad in place. So essentially, the iPad slides all over it. You can use the groves on the bottom (the keyboard side), but the back of the casing doesn't have any magnets, clasps, ANY way to hold the iPad in place. I needed a keyboard to travel with and not just use in one precarious position. This is ridiculously low quality for this price range and for Apple to carry in general. I don't know how well the actual keyboard works because it is useless to me if there is no way to secure the iPad to it.

    Disappointing from a protection standpoint, types amazingly well

    • Written by Adam N from San Diego

    I bought this keyboard folio less than a month ago, along with my new 11 in iPad Pro. The keys, and typing experience are very good. What is not good is the lack of protection this offers your very expensive iPad. Within the first month, the magnets failed to hold my iPad and it slid out of the folio completely, hitting the floor and putting a sizable Knick in the bottom corner of my 1200 tablet.

    Apple is breaking their 14 day return policy for me to take back this inferior product and allow me to try the Logitech Bluetooth keyboard which appears to offer much more protection for the iPad at a much lower price. I am hopeful that it will type just as well and offer more protection to my tablet. The fact that it is less than a month old and has battle scars already is quite irritating.

    Why all the hate?

    • Written by Guy G from Colchester

    Picked one of these up for my new iPad Pro 11 and I can't grasp why so many people are complaining. For the last 2 days, I've been trialing whether or not I can replace my MBP 15 with this while traveling/flying on businesses. So far, YES I CAN, this keyboard has enabled me to work so much quicker and is only made better with the iPadOS beta just released, the angle of the iPad and screen is just perfect. Another thing I love about this case is the magnets. I hate cases on my phones, laptops and iPad at the same time as I am OCD about scratches. I always felt the cases for iPads scratch when you clip unclip clip unclip etc. With the magnets, these days are gone. Some points to what I've read and heard about this case:

    "It makes my iPad bulky" - Well yes, what did you expect... you're adding an entire keyboard, its not that thick, we're talking roughly the thickness of the latest MacBook Pro

    "It won't protect my device if I drop it" - True if you drop the iPad on its side it won't, but common guys, you have an £1100 device. Take care of it.

    "its expensive" - It is Apple.... what did you expect. also in apple tradition, while expensive. "It just works" no charging, no clipping it into place, just slap it on, and you're good to go.

    Best Apple accessory I've bought to date.

    Do The Thing

    • Written by Lexi B from Toccoa

    After major research and sifting through numerous reviews and comparisons of this product in relation to third party keyboards, I first decided to go with a bulkier third party keyboard. While it had some benefits like additional protection and backlit keys... it was anything but a seamless experience. The case added a lot of weight that in my eyes defeated the purpose of having a such a beautiful, portable, cutting edge iPad Pro. After only a few days, I returned it and decided to go out on a limb and give this bad boy a go. Putting the case on was effortless and it instantly connected to my iPad. I personally love the look and feel of the case and keys. It’s modern, convenient, and keeps a low and light profile which is essential for a college student on the go. In short - make the right choice the first time around and pick up this keyboard. I was pleasantly surprised and find it to be everything i hoped for and more.

    Adequate keyboard. Horrible case.

    • Written by Derek M from Houston

    Buy this case if you don't value your iPad's safety. This case relies on a single magnet to hold the iPad in the case. Meaning, if for some reason the magnet doesn't grab on to your iPad, your iPad will come out of the case and break on your tile floor. Furthermore, Apple will not stand behind their products when they fail and you will have to pay the full 499 to repair the screen. They will tell you the folio is not designed to protect the iPad. Good luck getting them to explain how else to protect it while using this folio, other than buying AppleCare.

    Avoid the highway robbery charge for repair. Get a keyboard case that will actually protect your device.

    The keyboard itself is adequate and otherwise functions fine.

    I really wish I never got this

    • Written by Brandon W

    This keyboard was so expensive for what is does, Now having it for a few months, I can say that the typing experience is not awful. However, I have almost broken my iPad several times because it does not stay put in the case very well. if you are stationary for a lot of time, then this keyboard may work for you. There are other keyboards that are now available that may be worth trying.

    Easy to type, NO protection

    • Written by Tyler S from Alpine

    This keyboard is okay, it is definitely more about form over function as it has zero protection for your iPad. I would avoid this keyboard altogether and get the Logitech one or the new Brydge. They’re both Bluetooth but work better and have way more protection. Apple’s use of the smart connector on the BACK of the device is dumb and not useful whatsoever. AVOID this keyboard as it is overpriced and not protective AT all.

    Will do for now...

    • Written by Paul K from Apple Valley

    For now, this will do until another vendor comes out with a better one. What I do not like:

    No caps lock light
    No backlit keys
    Cannot use voice recognition when the keyboard is activated <- BIGGEST ISSUE
    Keys on the table when opened flat
    Price

    Do not mind some complaints others have had, but the biggest is that I cannot use voice recognition.

    Had a way better one for my iPad 2 at a fraction of the price.

    DO NOT BUY!

    • Written by Hannah S from Sudbury

    Brought this along with the 11” iPad Pro - it is not secure enough! After a week of having it, my iPad slipped out and smashed.....I’ve wasted £1000 on a ‘premium’ product which I can now no longer use!! Absolutely useless!!!!

    Surprisingly Wrong!

    • Written by Brett H from Shelton

    I gotta tell you... I was more than a little skeptical of this keyboard for my 11-inch iPad Pro, mostly because I thought it would be too small and cramped to type on, and I didn't like the idea that when I wasn't using it, it would fold back on the back of the iPad with the keys exposed. But I was SURPRISINGLY WRONG about this thing! In fact, I love it. A lot. You'll be surprised to know that this is actually one of my favorite keyboards to type on now, next only to Apple's own Magic Keyboard 2. It's comfortable, I don't mind the keys being exposed on the back at all, especially since they provide protection for my iPad and, should I spill something on it while typing, the keys are protected by a sturdy lining too. Plus I've got a convenient keyboard always with me, even for those times I'm not expecting to need it. I was surprisingly wrong, and I'm pretty glad.

    Great Keyboard

    • Written by Nick A from St Helier

    Really impressed with this keyboard. It has allowed my iPad Pro 11” to truly be a laptop replacement. It does t bulk out the iPad and keeps the iPads small profile. Lovely to touch type on, has a great feel to it. The two positions work perfectly, and allows stable typing whilst on my lap, which was something I was worried about, but it does the job. It provides protection to screen and back whilst travelling. It attaches and detaches so quick and easily without the fuss of other products. I’m really impressed with the device it’s met my expectations and then some. I know some think it’s pricey, but given the quality, it’s performance and overall stylish design I think it is worth it and allows my iPad to become a true laptop replacement and a great road worrier. Highly recommended on all levels.

    Not worth the money

    • Written by Donald M from Gilbert

    I was so excited when I receive my new iPad Pro 11. I had high hopes where the keys to revive protection for my new iPad. I was wrong. The case has a couple of flaws. One, no protection for the sides of the device. Two, the case when closing at the magnet that holds the iPad in place is not strong enough to maintain its attachment to the case and the iPad will fall out. So far my iPad has fallen to the ground three times. All I can say is you would be better off taking the money you would spend on this case and burn it. Sorry Apple but it’s time for you to go back to the drawing board.

    Do not Buy, it will wreck your screen

    • Written by Will H from Wallsend

    £179 for the pleasure of having my screen scratched when the keyboard is closed. That’s over £1000 down the drain. A problem that would have been dealt with I’d it was shipped with a screen film or protector but of course the iPad Pro apparently doesn’t need one... very poor deign flaw! Ruined iPad!

    The outside or backside due to its texture is hard to wipe clean?

    • Written by Robin D from Milwaukee

    Disappointed that the smart keyboard folio doesn’t have a special shiny coating to help with the fingerprints, sticky fingers, etc Have to wipe it clean more often but somtetimes iit still looks dull and dirty. I would like to see a clear type of case to go over the smart follio part to help reduce the issues with keeping it clean. A shiny glossy type textuere is alot easier to wipe clean vs one that has a dull finish! The perfomance is fine but flaw of the outer backside makes it look ugly. Somtimes the magnegts don’t always hold and it falls out of the case.

    The best keyboard-case combo you can buy.

    • Written by Stephen H from Orange

    This is the best keyboard folio you can buy. It's fits perfectly and, more importantly, it fits snuggly. Too many other folios have too much play and tip over/slide around. Not this one.

    The only reason I didn't give it 5 starts is that at $180, it's priced about $50-$60 too high.

    Ignore the 1-2 star reviews. Clearly those individuals need to buy a MacBook Air, not a tablet with a keyboard portfolio attachment. Pro tip: The iPad Pro 11" is not a notebook and it never will be.

    Good keyboard, but need to be careful !

    • Written by Johan K

    Good keyboard, but need to be careful because it is easy to detach your iPad from your keyboard.
    My iPad has been detached from keyboard and the glass is broken (no warranty for the glass).
    Apple need to modify and make the keyboard not easy to detach from iPad

    Beats me why all the negative reviews

    • Written by Marvin P from LOS ANGELES

    I just bought one for my 11.9 iPad Pro. I liked it so much I went back and bought another for my 12.9 iPad Pro. First of all the keyboard is great. I mean to be so slim and compact it provides a great feel. I’m a touch typist and a harsh critic of keyboards. I did not have any trouble with it whatsoever. Second it’s thin. It’s almost as thin as the folio with no keyboard. So it fits in my backpack nicely. Third it feels well made. I noticed some people complained about it feeling cheap. Not so. It feels seamlessly fabricated. Could I HULK out and rip it to pieces? Sure, but I don’t think I have to worry much about that. Next it works. Automatically. No Bluetooth pairing. It just worked, to coin a phrase. Next I noticed that many people complained about not having keys that light up. I suppose if that sort of thing entertains you it can be very important, but give me a break. The screen lights up the keyboard if you need it. If you’re on the Internet a lot, you’ll find that it can become a big old echo chamber. Most of the negative reviews here echo each other. It’s almost as if there’s a script. I dunno. My only complaint is the price. But that’s Apple. So if you’re considering one of these devices, I recommend ignoring all of the reviews and heading down to the Apple Store. Sit down and try it out. You’ll see it’s actually a well made little accessory.
