      Small But Serious Design Flaw

Instead, the weight of the 10.5" i When resting on a flat surface (e.g. a desktop or table) with the iPad seated properly, the Smart Keyboard does not lie flat. 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

      So I was under the impression that the 10.5 version of the Smart Keyboard would have a redesigned key layout; this is not the case--the key layout is identical So I was under the impression that the 10.5 version of the Smart Keyboard would have a redesigned key layout; this is not the case--the key layout is identical to that of the 9.7 version. The picture for this product is a blatant, if not strategic, misrepresentation of what you will receive. SMH...

      iPad don’t recognize in 80% of the times

      iPad don’t recognize the keyboard in 80% of the times. You need to take it out and put it in a lot of times. It’s really a total lost of time and money

You get what you pay for and this keyboard beat the others hands down for functionality - auto connection (don't have to pair with bluetooth) to iOS, magnetic/rapid connect/disconnect feature, closest to a real laptop keyboard in functionality and keyboard feel of the three I tried, and sits at a good angle (and flat on table) angle for both typing and viewing when seated at a desk. Am not sure what the negative review for not lying flat is referencing because mine lies perfectly flat?

      The Best iPad Keyboard By Far - But There’s Still Room For Improvemenmt

      Pros - Great tactile response for such a thin keyboard - Smart Connector negates the need for any pairing or charging - it’s already ready for use, just lik Pros - Great tactile response for such a thin keyboard - Smart Connector negates the need for any pairing or charging - it’s already ready for use, just like a laptop keyboard - Unlike a laptop keyboard, it doubles as a cover that is always attached to the iPad, which makes the device extremely versatile. I can easily use it as a normal tablet even with the Smart Keyboard on, or I can easily remove the Smart Keyboard whenever I want to use the iPad alone. - At 0.5 pounds, it’s very lightweight for an iPad keyboard case, which usually weighs more than 0.8 pounds - Pretty stable for such a lightweight and thin keyboard case made out of fabric - It’s dust, water and spill resistant Cons - No backlighting (understandable because the keyboard needs to be thin enough to be used as a cover) - I wish it could be even lighter and thinner. The device itself is about 1 pound, so relatively spreaking Smart Keyboard is about half the weight of the device it complements. With the Smart Keyboard attached it becomes as heavy as the 12.9 inch iPad Pro. - Only one viewing angle for typing - Not extremely stable on laps, or other non-flat surfaces - No function keys (this is also understandable because having a function row will make the keyboard bigger and harder to use it as a cover) - Once in a while the Smart Connector doesn’t connect properly Overall, it’s by far the best keyboard accessory for iPad Pro if you do a lot of typing. It takes iPad productivity to a whole new level. But it still has a lot of room for improvement. It is definitely expensive, but I don’t think it’s overpriced. There is no other keyboard accessory you can get that matches the overall experience of the Smart Keyboard.
