      My least favorite Apple product (of all time)

      This may be the only item I've ever been compelled to write a negative review about, for anything, ever. My dislike stems from the fact that, as others have poi This may be the only item I've ever been compelled to write a negative review about, for anything, ever. My dislike stems from the fact that, as others have pointed out (some in a positive light), that it feels just like using a laptop keyboard. Yes, it feels exactly like that. I didn't buy a standalone keyboard for it to feel like my MacBook Air (which, btw, I love). I wanted improved functionality, along with minimal cordage on my cramped desk. Having used an earlier version of the magic keyboard at work and finding it easy to use, I didn't have any qualms trading off the expanded functionality of the USB cable version for this smaller keyboard, though I suspected I'd miss it a little bit. So I was surprised to find out how different the usability of this keyboard is to the earlier magic keyboard I'd used before. The angle of the keyboard makes it difficult to type. The close positioning of the keys makes it difficult to type. The location of the fn key is constantly in my way. Oddly enough, when I'm on my laptop, I don't have any of these issues, like constantly losing letters I just typed or thought I'd typed), hitting the fn key accidentally when I want to use the control key, etc. This tells me it's not that I'm not used to a smaller size keyboard, it's that there are several major design flaws. Typing this review, even, borders on semi-painful. I'm a fast typer and a good speller -- if I were to submit this review as it were being typed, however, it would look like a 6-year-old wrote it (no offense to six-year-olds). Last but not least, I actually ALSO have a functional problem with it: the fn key doesn't work to allow me to interchange between fn keys and their other, more useful duties, such as sound control, screen brightness, etc. System preferences aren't making it work, so it's something else happening that I can't figure out. At least I can get my keyboard "fixed" ... but what I really wish I could do, is replace it entirely with the prior version of this, which may have had battery issues (or so I've heard), but at least was EASY TO USE for its intended purpose: TYPING. Sorry for the negativity. I just ... am so ... annoyed with this product.

      disappointed :(

It was perfect but it went nuts on me and would not hold a connection and would not type numbers.. it was old and it decided it to call it quits.. and I ran out to replace it today and thought that this would be the same but without batteries. Its so flat. I have had to write a report tonight and my wrists are killing me! Its not at all ergonomic.. why no legs? Why no back light ? I dont mind the keys being more shallow, i can live with that kind of a change but when it does not work for basic healthy typing position what is the point? I use an external keyboard because the keyboard on the lap top is not at an angle that is healthy to work on for long hours and a lot of typing, I am curious as to what was the rational for many of these changes ? Ergonomics are a huge issue in any work station. . I suppose i could prop it up on stuff but that is not a very good solution for mobile use. Total fail.. the old one had a very very smart user friendly design. The angle was created by the little round area where the batteries went in.. was quite brilliant. Maybe I can find little rubber feet and glue them to the back and then find something to keep it from sliding towards me, it was not designed for that but I may be able to make it work. APPLE do you have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

      Worst Keyboard I've Invested Time and Money In

      I've given this keyboard a 14 day trial run. I really forced myself to like this keyboard, but no matter how hard I tried to convince myself of this keyboard's I've given this keyboard a 14 day trial run. I really forced myself to like this keyboard, but no matter how hard I tried to convince myself of this keyboard's ability to be a great match with my mid-2015 15" rMBP it just wasn't. Well, I've returned this keyboard for a mechanical one at the same price point. I can now be productive again, work in the dark, limit my typos, not worrying about having to reposition my fingers, having the proper keys available to navigate files and web pages, and have the proper spacing of keys for accurate typing. For $100 not worth it! I would sell this for a maximum of $28. I'm sure it only costs $20 to manufacture anyhow. Thanks, Mark

      good for a mobile keyboard

      I use a laptop for my main machine, but when I travel around I use an iPad Mini.

I don't think I'd use this when I have my laptop setup with a desktop screen, I prefer something mechnical. However as a moible keyboarf for the iPad mini, this is really light weight and the typing experience is similar to my MacBook Pro

      Nice and compact

I have a 2017 MacBook Pro and have been using a full-sized last-generatio I think this is a good choice if you like Apple keyboards and need something compact. I have a 2017 MacBook Pro and have been using a full-sized last-generation Apple keyboard for several years when at my desk; I got this little guy for ergonomic reasons, to reduce my reach to my mouse. Compared to the MBP and the full-sized keyboard, features fall somewhere in the middle. Key travel is slightly greater than on the MBP but not as much as the last-generation Apple keyboard. Key noise is somewhat less than the MBP, about the same as the big keyboard. Key surface is smoother than the last-gen Apple keyboards but not as smooth as the MBP. Personally I prefer the feel of the last generation keyboards but this isn't horrible! One review here complains about tiny key size however except for the bottom row,keys are the same size as the bigger keyboard (top row is actually larger), and larger than the MBP keyboard. My issues come with the bottom row, which has the same layout as the MBP keyboard. This puts the Fn key on the far left and the cursor keys at the right with the up and down keys half-height. The Fn key is in a more convenient position than the last-gen full-sized keyboard however I keep hitting it when I want the Control key! I don't have an issue with the half-height up and down keys on my MBP however on this one I have more trouble; I think it's because the inside edges are more beveled than on the MBP which leaves less surface available. Battery life on this keyboard is excellent. I have been using it for a week since the initial charge and it still shows 96% charge!

      Apple keyboards get worse and worse with each new design

      The keyboard in Apple's series of designs is one aspect where form takes precedence over functionality to the detriment of productivity. It is utterly useless i The keyboard in Apple's series of designs is one aspect where form takes precedence over functionality to the detriment of productivity. It is utterly useless if you have ever typed on a real keyboard. There is nothing magic about this keyboard. It is more 'Mickey Mouse' of a keyboard. It looks nice with your gleaming Mac. But that's about it. Every second character will be the wrong one typed and you will find yourself constantly having to correct what previously transferred from the keyboard to your screen like magic. Perhaps Apple felt the need to emphasise what is lost with this new keyboard - the 'magic' of typing. Typing with this keyboard is nothing but a painful chore. I am thinking of replacing it with something more functional and perhaps framing this one to hang on my wall as an interesting example of design freakery run amok.
