      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

      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...

      I really love this keyboard

      After reading a ton of so/so reviews of this keyboard, I just didn’t find another I was in love with. There are several online that may be less expensive, but After reading a ton of so/so reviews of this keyboard, I just didn’t find another I was in love with. There are several online that may be less expensive, but really, they feel clunky, and the keys are just too close for my liking. I have yet to find a keyboard I have actually used with any of my ipad’s. After purchasing an iPad Pro, i dove in a purchased this Smart Keyboard. It looks amazing. It doesn’t add too much weight or thickness to the iPad, and is very easy to type on. I wish I was able to type on my lap without a hard surface, but this keyboard just does not have the structure to sit on your lap alone. It is not a deal breaker at all. Just wish it was different. I also did not like the lack of protection for the back of the iPad, but i was able to find a cheap and nice looking cover to address this, so again, not a deal breaker for me. In fact, I like that it doesn’t look like ONE piece around the iPad. Overall, I wish I would have grabbed an iPad Pro earlier, and am very happy with the Smart Keyboard. Love it.

      Feels uncharacteristically cheap.

      Upside: the learning curve is not as steep as I’d imagined, and it does complement the functionality of the iPad quite well. Downsides: No escape key. Not all Upside: the learning curve is not as steep as I’d imagined, and it does complement the functionality of the iPad quite well. Downsides: No escape key. Not all apps respond to the keyboard (e.g. Netflix). No backlit keys. The worse offender: the fugly cheap coating. It’s baffling to see Microsoft create such amazing keyboards for their Surface line while Apple’s feel like a knockoff picked out from a back alley basket sale.

      Underwhelmed.

      Spotted it on display at COSCTO, and I figured that since it came from Apple, I just had to have it. Bad decision. Was first of all very disappointed that the k Spotted it on display at COSCTO, and I figured that since it came from Apple, I just had to have it. Bad decision. Was first of all very disappointed that the keys are not backlit. Or did I miss something. How come so many third-party keyboards come with backlighting? Secondly, no back protection. It's bad enough that Apple won't include at a minimum a simple vinyl cover for basic protection with the original iPad, instead you expect us to pay $30 to $100 plus for a decent cover. Finally, I buy this combination keyboard/cover and there's no back protection! Returning it today. Steve Jobs is looking down on you from above and he's not happy.
