      What a disappointment!

      I was very excited to see that Apple had redesigned this product. None of my previous 3 Apple iPad Keyboards made it through their first year with disconnection I was very excited to see that Apple had redesigned this product. None of my previous 3 Apple iPad Keyboards made it through their first year with disconnection problems. I opened this one to find the finish felt like a very cheap plastic. There were bubbles all over the finish and it was discolored in several spots. When I called Apple support, they said they couldn't send me a new one until this one was returned to their warehouse. I can't even order a replacement because they are now several weeks out on backorder. I'm not left with no way to protect my even more expensive than the last model iPad Pro. What has happened to you, Apple?

      Not worth $200 on any planet. Wait for Logitech or Brydge or other keyboard

      Got it because it's the current Day-1 "only" option. It WILL be going back. It was my fault for not reading that it does not have a backlit keyboard. Which b Got it because it's the current Day-1 "only" option. It WILL be going back. It was my fault for not reading that it does not have a backlit keyboard. Which begs the question. WHAT? WHY? If not, why so expensive? A lesson I already knew. Buy the main Apple products, but get the accessories somewhere else.

      Big design flaw - Why would you leave the keys exposed?

      Got this earlier today. I can’t figure out why they removed the flap that covers the keys up for when the cover is closed. It seems like the keys are going to Got this earlier today. I can’t figure out why they removed the flap that covers the keys up for when the cover is closed. It seems like the keys are going to attract a bunch of dirt and get scratched up when its fully opened and not in “keyboard” mode and the keyboard is just facing down on your work surface. And then when the keys are dirty or are scratched they will scratch up the iPad display when the cover is closed. I think this is a serious design flaw. It does seem more solid and durable than the previous version which I went through a couple of as they seemed to lose their connection to the smart connector on the previous iPad Pro model.

      Huge step backwards

      I just upgraded from a first gen 12.3 to the 3rd gen. I had the Apple keyboard case for it. Yeah, the whole thing was bulky, but it was very practical and wor I just upgraded from a first gen 12.3 to the 3rd gen. I had the Apple keyboard case for it. Yeah, the whole thing was bulky, but it was very practical and worked well. Even the price wasn't too much of a stretch for the quality. But this new one is overpriced junk. There are a lot of reasons listed in these reviews that I won't go over again, but much of what is mentioned, I agree with. My major complaints are that the material feels cheap, compared to the old one. The edges are sharp, like the just left any extra plastic that squeezed out from the mold on the case, without removing and smoothing it down. The edges of the iPad are not protected at all. If you drop this on a corner, that's pretty much the end of your iPad, because the iPad itself is structurally weaker than the first gen. Lastly, whoever designed the keyboard needs to be retrained. The first gen smartly folded away to protect it when it was not needed. This one stays exposed and can get gummed up pretty easily, transferring whatever it's sitting in directly on to the screen when closed up. Returned mine. For $200, a keyboard cover and case should be nearly perfect. This is far from it. I know Apple likes an attractive design, I do as well. But why they keep making beautiful products that can't do the job is beyond me.

      Poor

      Works fine but only attaches magnetically, should have read the fine print. Also, the molded edges are sharp enough to slice you fingers or hand if you run alo Works fine but only attaches magnetically, should have read the fine print. Also, the molded edges are sharp enough to slice you fingers or hand if you run along the edge quickly when folded back completely. Very poor molding/finishing, expect better from Apple especially at $199.
