      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.

      Best iPad Pro Keyboard, Why the bad hype??

      So I was so hesitant on buying this keyboard because it had 3 stars on the Apple Website. Let me tell you the decision to buy it was a great decision. Yes the k So I was so hesitant on buying this keyboard because it had 3 stars on the Apple Website. Let me tell you the decision to buy it was a great decision. Yes the keyboard is a little on the expensive side at $200 for the iPad Pro 12.9”, however, that really is the only negative I can think of, and I’m used to Apple products being on the higher end of the pricing spectrum. This keyboard has been phenomenal, I got used to typing on it almost immediately, and I can type as fast on this keyboard as I can on my Mac Book Pro. I love how the almost cloth texture of the keyboard feels. I love how sturdy it is, it magnetically locks the iPad into place in the 2 orientations. It’s easy to use when you’re lounging around on a couch or in bed. Portable enough to travel with me everywhere. It greatly improves multitasking on the iPad Pro because when you’re using multiple apps you don’t have the clunky virtual keyboard taking up 1/2 the screen. This device in combination to the iPad Pro made me ditch my personal computer. For my personal task I just use my iPad Pro now. I still have a work Mac Book Pro, but there is really no way for me to get around that. I highly recommend this product to iPad Pro users who’re looking for a more laptop feel.

      Everyone else is way over-reacting

      I don't usually review products, but after seeing all the 1 and 2 star reviews for this keyboard I was very worried, so I've decided to counterbalance the massi I don't usually review products, but after seeing all the 1 and 2 star reviews for this keyboard I was very worried, so I've decided to counterbalance the massive negative sentiment. Yes, this keyboard is expensive - but it is an Apple product and they are all expensive. No, this keyboard will not provide protection if you drop your iPad - but really, if you are looking for drop protection, you should not be looking for a keyboard case!! Would you drop your laptop and then blame its keyboard for not adequately protecting it? You would not. Yes, this keyboard is held on with magnets - but it functions perfectly fine. And finally, yes, this keyboard does look and feel different than the average Apple keyboard - but everyone who has used more than one device at once over the last few years will be familiar with the sensation of having to relearn to location of keys on a keyboard. This product is great. It means I can use my iPad as a latpop, which is what I wanted to do. I have no idea why everyone is so hugely against it, butI think they're massively overreacting.

      Inconceivable...And I DO Know What That Word Means!

      Let's be perfectly honest, it's getting harder and harder to be an Apple fan, promoter and/or defender. This keyboard has its good qualities like the VERY stro Let's be perfectly honest, it's getting harder and harder to be an Apple fan, promoter and/or defender. This keyboard has its good qualities like the VERY strong magnets that hold the iPad at either of the two viewing angles; however, that's about it for the good news. The keyboard IS NOT BACKLIT. Inconceivable! When Steve was still alive, he seemed to know intuitively what people/fans would want in both the main product, i.e., iMac, iPhone, iPad, etc. AND the accessories for those products. Mr. Cook is, seemingly, more interested in changing his last name to Apple! Really? Someone at Apple needs to step forward and take the reins of the company. This keyboard is, truly, limited in so many ways but the primary one is not being backlit. Add to that NO protection for the keys and the high price for an inferior product and you have an over all loser. Fortunately, there are other keyboards that do both of these necessities and they will sell like hotcakes to discerning consumers who realize their beloved Apple is going down the wrong path as far as the simple baseline needs of consumers looking for accessories. Inconceivable.
