      Small But Serious Design Flaw

Instead, the weight of the 10.5" iPad tips the leading edge of the keyboard up about ¼", making it difficult to type on because the user must either hold the keyboard down on the desk or prop the iPad up from behind. Apple's legendary attention to detail seems to have failed them here. Do not buy this product unless you're prepared to hold down a keyboard that should not need holding down.

      Protection concern

I hope they plan to add a back that is compatible with the Smart Keyboard case. I have seen others question this on the site. Cant tell you how it works because my iPad won't arrive until next week. Its just the protection of the iPad that concerns me. It is quite an investment. Thank you

      New iPad Pro 10.5 Smart Keyboard

The picture for this product is a blatant, if not strategic, misrepresentation of what you will receive. SMH...

      The perfect complement to your iPad Pro

      This is Apple's case that they want everyone to use. It's an evolution on their Smart Cover if you have ever used one. The keys actually feel pretty good, bette This is Apple's case that they want everyone to use. It's an evolution on their Smart Cover if you have ever used one. The keys actually feel pretty good, better than the keys on the 9.7" iPad Pro even though you think it wouldn't make a difference. I love the soft cloth type material that lays against the screen. Call me crazy but I think it helps wipe smudges off the screen when I close it. The stand is also surprisingly stable, I can push on any part of the screen and it doesn't wobble. It also sticks to the desk decently well and doesn't slide around. It has a small footprint when it's open. It also works well sitting Indian style (my favorite seated position), seated at a desk and when sitting on a couch. It does not work as well when laying in bed though due to it's fixed angle. I found that the angle works in most places but it just doesn't when laying down. I found myself holding it to get the perfect angle. The keyboard also has the option of folding around to the back of the case when you want to use the iPad like an iPad instead of like a laptop. Overall, the case looks good and functions well. It shows off the beautiful design of the iPad and doesn't add much weight. I do wish that they made an option with leather or gave us color choices to the keyboard. There is no backlighting but that doesn't bother me that much. I've known the keyboard for most of my life and all the keys are where they should be, if you need to look down the light from the iPad screen is enough to see them. The keys sit close to the screen and you can easily reach up and touch the screen while using the keyboard. There is no Apple Pencil holder, it would be so easy to add it somewhere but they want you to buy the sleeve. However, using the Apple Pencil was a joy when you can just fold the cover back or just pop it off. I just used an old Microsoft Surface Pen Loop (ironic?) on my iPad to hold the pen. It's the perfect case for someone who wants to use the iPad as a tablet with a keyboard.

      Better than the only other option (to date)

Tried this one next: it importantly succeeds where the Logitech fails. This one attaches to the iPad with strong magnets when open and when closed - the opposite of the Logitech disconnected halves that never close securely. Would like some back protection (thin!) and backlight - but as better of two options on the market to date, this one wins. Either way, i *am* hooked on Smartconnector (both Logitech and Apple have this) - no need to charge the keyboard separately. If Apple could work out backlighting and perhaps provide a very thin silicone back cover option, this would be the clear winner.

      Works Great

      I find it hard to knock stars of something that is not supposed to be a back cover because it is not a back cover.

I also would like a back cover, but I was under no illusions that it would be. I used to have the 12.9 with the Smart Keyboard as well and this one works easily as well. I find it a bit to small for my big hands, but at the same time it has to be the size of the iPad so that's what I get. It does it's job well. The smart connector and magnetic closure works flawlessly. I also like that it magnetically attaches to the back of my naked iPad. It is a great accessory to have for productivity for me, I can type much faster, view my iPad better and overall just find it more functional than an onscreen keyboard. I also am not sure about others issues with it not being flat on the table. At first I thought mine had the same problem, but once it is sitting on a table I just adjust the iPad itself for a moment and it sits flat like it is supposed to. If you order one and you cannot seem to get it to lay flat, exchange it. If you are nowhere near to an Apple Store I would not be afraid to order it, it works as its supposed to.
