      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...

      No FN key so no forward delete option at present

      Maybe emojis are something everyone really loves to use. Me, I like to work with my devices and get stuff done. I like Apple products and software quite a bit, Maybe emojis are something everyone really loves to use. Me, I like to work with my devices and get stuff done. I like Apple products and software quite a bit, but also use Windows and PCs a lot as well. One of the things I’ve tolerated on the MacBooks over the years is the absence of a real delete key in favor of only backspace. At least you can work around this by using FN+Delete to get a real forward delete key. Not on this keyboard. It’s not only not possible with that key combo that most any power user would know, it’s not possible at all at present. There is no key combo that does forward delete on this keyboard. Similarly, there is NO control for media playing. No pause. No “next track.” No volume up or down, and apparently, no key combination that will perform those functions. I do not get this. The keyboard itself seems exceptionally well made. It’s not all that pleasant to type on. I would never type a lot with this thing, but it’s so minimal and light that it’s great to have to dash off a tweet or a quick email. Serious work tool for this super powerful iPad? No way. Plan to pack an extra keyboard for that. This won’t do. It’s. A little jarring in terms of feel on fingers. But, it does seem sturdy, dirt impervious, water resistant, and easy to have on you at all times you have your iPad. So, it’s useful for that. Just not for any type of serious work.

      All of the Smart Cover protection with an added ability.

      Yes, it might be a bit expensive, but it offers protection and it is surprisingly easy to type on. I use mine with the Tech21 Impact Clear Case when out of the Yes, it might be a bit expensive, but it offers protection and it is surprisingly easy to type on. I use mine with the Tech21 Impact Clear Case when out of the office. When I am in my office I can take off the Leather Smart Cover and set my iPad down on my Logitech iPad Pro Stand and use the Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. This has made an all around useful professional tool for the office and the cockpit where I use my iPad for flight planning and more. I am crossing my fingers that the iPad pro line gets support for Mac OS or at least cursor support. It is great for productivity as it is, but It has the power now to do so much more.
