For the reviewer who said there is no place for Apple Pencil it is magnetized and it attaches to the side of the iPad and that will also charge it.

      Better than I expected

      This keyboard was a split-decision purchase when my 12” Macbook crashed. I already owned the 11” iPad Pro, so instead of spending another grand on a new laptop This keyboard was a split-decision purchase when my 12” Macbook crashed. I already owned the 11” iPad Pro, so instead of spending another grand on a new laptop right now, I decided the $170 for a keyboard was a little more reasonable. I am a college student so my main use for this is internet browsing and completing online assignments, nothing super heavy duty. The other night it was lagging a little bit as I was typing out a lengthy assignment, but I noticed it was lagging when my internet was also being slow, so I don’t know the mechanics of the keyboard but maybe it had something to do with my internet? As I’m typing this I am experiencing no lag. For those negative reviews, most of the complaints are things that the consumer knew BEFORE buying the keyboard, e.g. no backlit keyboard, comes in a dark grey, not multiple colors, etc. So in my opinion, why would you choose to buy it anyway if you know there’s things you don’t like about it? Yes it doesn’t have 360 degree protection, I own the Apple X Otterbox case they came out with for the protection aspect and it is great at what it’s meant to do. This is a keyboard, not a protective case, keep that in mind. As always I would recommend a glass screen protector, it has saved my iPad screen on more than one occasion. I can’t speak on the longevity of the the keyboard since I have only had it less than a week, but overall I am happy with the keyboard.

      Good Feel. Big keys.

      I wish Apple would make these “smart” keyboards with backlit keys for times when you are typing in low light situations. I knew this about the keyboard before I I wish Apple would make these “smart” keyboards with backlit keys for times when you are typing in low light situations. I knew this about the keyboard before I bought it, just hope that Apple reads these reviews and gives it some thought. Pros: 1. While the keys feel a bit spongy (not as crisp as the Apple Magic Keyboard), overall I would say it works nicely. Keystrokes are positive and true. 2. I like that the keyboard doesn’t require separate charging. 3. The stand, which has 2 slots for positioning the iPad Pro, has strong magnetic to hold the iPad in the stand and for securing it when closed. 4. Keyboard does put the iPad to sleep when closed Cons: 1. A little pricey 2. A lack of backlit keys (I know, neither does the Magic keyboard), but it would be a nice feature. 3. While my hands are clean when I use the keyboard, I notice that the iPad screen gets ‘smudged’ by the keyboard when closed.

      Great, but with this newest version iPad shakes??

      I have had an iPad Pro since their debut in 2015, both sizes, all interactions, always with a keyboard/folio combo. Lamented that the original 12” set up - wit I have had an iPad Pro since their debut in 2015, both sizes, all interactions, always with a keyboard/folio combo. Lamented that the original 12” set up - with the full cover that detached from the keyboard, was discontinued, but was a big user and fan of the new keyboard that came up with the 10.5 inch, which I have used avidly since 2017. Recently upgraded to the 11”. I love these keyboards and find them easier to type on than any MacBook keyboard I have, especially the new “butterfly” generation. So now that I have now my 3rd keyboard folio, I am all but shocked to see that THE IPAD SHAKES WHEN I TOUCH IT WITH THIS KEYBOARD!!! Has anybody else experienced this? It has totally detracted from the experience of the folio from the first moments of using it. Basically, when I reach for the screen with the iPad in either position, and tap at all, the entire iPad shakes. It’s like the back support of this case is too flimsily designed. Makes me feel like if I go to an expensive restaurant and sit down and the table wobbles because the legs are not balanced. This is a huge annoyance and I am not sure if this is something I can get used, and frankly I shouldn’t have to! I have combed the web for alternatives to Apple’s folios, even bought and tested Logitech and Brydge and ultimately deemed the Apple the best. This is an amazing disappointment. I hope they will fix this I’d pay another $170, as unreasonable as that is, to get the original Apple keyboard folio experience back. I am curious, anybody else finding this as annoying as me?
