      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...

      Much better than the 9.7

The magnets are stronger, the cover itself feels firmer, and there's no annoying line on the screen where the keyboard folds down.

      Looks like the picture, lies flat, even holds Apple Pencil

      It's a keyboard that doubles as a screen protector. If you want protection for the back, you might need to get a case instead. But, consider getting this keybo It's a keyboard that doubles as a screen protector. If you want protection for the back, you might need to get a case instead. But, consider getting this keyboard and a decal or shell for the back of your iPad (but also, be careful of adding weight - I don't miss my old case). This keyboard is lightweight, attaches firmly enough to let you use the iPad on your lap, and *does* lie flat. If yours "floats" in the front and doesn't settle in a day, take it back to Apple and they'll (likely) replace it (happened to my wife). Added bonus I discovered: put the Pencil near the opening edge when the cover is closed, and it'll stick magnetically, firmly, in place. Note for developers: There's no escape key or row of function keys. For me, the weight and ability to use it on my lap override the need for the extra keys, and I work around it with the on-screen function keys most development apps provide. There's also no backlight - but again, it's lightweight. Lights add weight and reduce battery life. For me, this keyboard strikes the right balance.

      So disappointed

      I do not understand why apple would make such a nice keyboard for the I Pad pro and then have no way of protecting the back of the i-pad. Such a beautiful acc I do not understand why apple would make such a nice keyboard for the I Pad pro and then have no way of protecting the back of the i-pad. Such a beautiful accessory until you realize that there is no protection on the back. I guess they feel if you ever drop it it will always land on the keyboard side. Such a disappointment . Hopefully they will change the keyboard case or sell a back that could be nicely incorporated .
