      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...

      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.

      Poor execution

      The back isn't protected and it's flimsy. The logitech is also horrible and these are the only two on the market that uses the smart connector. Too bad that I The back isn't protected and it's flimsy. The logitech is also horrible and these are the only two on the market that uses the smart connector. Too bad that I bought the Ipad pro 10.5 The 9.7 has more accessories and the extra 0.7" doesn't matter. This will be my last Apple purchase. Your creativity and design died when Steve Jobs passed away. Apple is no longer the same company and it's sad.

      Fix the problem Apple - I’m walking.

Own up Apple, own the problem and get the compatibility issue sorted. Stop telling people that it isn’t a problem - you know that it is. I’m so frustrated I’m going to head to a PC - Surface Pro seem more reliable - so disappointing as I’ve been an advocate for Apple for years.
