      Don't listen to the haters....This is a fantastic "keyboard"

      Love at first use. This keyboard is amazing. Yes, it does only cover the front, but so what. Yes, there is no holder for the pencil, but, so what. Yes, the Love at first use. This keyboard is amazing. Yes, it does only cover the front, but so what. Yes, there is no holder for the pencil, but, so what. Yes, there may be some functionality glitches, but again, so what. This Smart "KEYBOARD" for iPad Pro rocks. Apple only promised us a keyboard, and that's what this is. The whiners probably shake their birthday cards for money before they read them, so sad. This is by far the best peripheral keyboard I've ever used in terms of feel and accuracy. Oh, and the feel/look of the materials/design is far from cheap, as mentioned in some other reviews. They nailed it, AGAIN!! Thanks Apple. Bottom Line - Drop the coin and don't look back. This keyboard will transform your iPad Pro into a monster of mayhem.(in a good way). Cheers!!

      After 35 years of computing, my favorite keyboard of all time.

I make virtually no typing errors on it, and it's proximity to the display makes the combination of a keyboard and the touch screen really work. With my other iPads, I used several aftermarket keyboards and typically abandoned them in a short time. I love this one, and hope that the shortcomings will be resolved soon in software.

      Best keyboard experience

      The keyboard might seem a bit on the higher end when it comes to the price, but then it is a pleasure to use. Based on my past experience with Logitech keyboard The keyboard might seem a bit on the higher end when it comes to the price, but then it is a pleasure to use. Based on my past experience with Logitech keyboards, I was a bit sceptical in using a keyboard at first but so far have not been disappointed. The quality is excellent, the keyboard works and integrates well with the iPadPro. Some people might want a trackpad - but given it is an iPad, you really do not need any. I recommend to get an Apple Pencil as well.

      Doesn’t Work Consistently

However, it does not have backlighting, has very limited angles and what is most fustrating is that it does not work consistently. I have tried two of these keyboards on more than one iPad Pro. The results were consistent. I had to adjust the keyboard often just to get a connection. Each time I took the tablet/keyboard out of “Type Mode" and put it back into “Type Mode”, I would have go through this routine of trying to adjust the tablet to get it to connect. Needless to say this is not very fun...nor very productive. Not sure what the issue is but it would be great if Apple looked into it and fixed the problem.

      It's a keyboard people, and smart cover.

      Don't overthink it. No, it doesn't have a holder for the pencil, or a back cover. GOOD. I don't want bulk and unnecessary bits in my way. It works as a smart co Don't overthink it. No, it doesn't have a holder for the pencil, or a back cover. GOOD. I don't want bulk and unnecessary bits in my way. It works as a smart cover, the keyboard is easy and precise to use AND it fits inside my leather sleeve which has a pencil holder. All the protection I need plus it's not too bulky so if I travel, I can easily slide it inside my carryon. No charging the keyboard, no needing an extra cable, no extra bulk. Does what I need it to do. Functional and simple. I'm satisfied.

      Worthless

      I would have given this keyboard a zero rating if possible. It is hopelessly useless.

The message “device not supported” is the only thing I get when I try to use this keyboard. Apple should be ashamed that they would vend such a flimsy product. I have tried cleaning the contacts dozens of times. I have followed other on-line instructions to correct the problem, including using a magnet to activate the so-called “Reed switch’ in the guttering above the keyboard. Useless like the keyboard. Apple should be ashamed.
