      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.

      Great, in person the keyboard is just perfect.

      While I can surely understand some individuals issues with the keyboard such as price and keys touching screen......I just have to disagree. Since typing on While I can surely understand some individuals issues with the keyboard such as price and keys touching screen......I just have to disagree. Since typing on a keyboard requires me hardly ever to actually look at it.......being backlit is just not an issue. Fit and finish is perfect. No signs of discoloration etc......... this is a new take on the keyboard for iPad. It is all about the magnets. This function just like the apple cover. Just drop the back onto the inside cover and done. Big things that I really like. 1. The iPad sits very firmly into either of the two notches. It takes both hands to lift it out of the notches. Super firm. Will not slip off while on lap, in car, on a train or on a plane. 2. When closed for carry the keyboard does not flip down. 3. Want to fold back totally? Not a problem.....once again magnets keep it firmly in place. In the end this light weight keyboard is perfect. Try it out before you follow the pack on the negative reviews. If you are a professional who knows how to type and knows key locations You will be happy with this extremely minimalistic keyboard/cover.

      I don't really understand the poor reviews - Good Keyboard

      I see people complaining about the lack of a back lit keyboard. I don't understand this. I would say that 99% of people using the ipad pro, have been using a ke I see people complaining about the lack of a back lit keyboard. I don't understand this. I would say that 99% of people using the ipad pro, have been using a keyboard for over 10 years. That being said, How do you not have the standard keyboard memorized? I guess that's just me, but I think the keyboard is fine. I like that it protects the back finally. I see others also complaining about "scratches on the screen". I don't think that is going to happen because of the much improved gorilla glass. I guess for some people, if you're going to pay $200 for a keyboard then you should get all the bells and whistles and I can't disagree with that. This keyboard should be $129 & that is why I won't give this 5 stars. To the people who DO complain about spending the $200, why did you buy it? If you "need" it, then why did you buy the ipad pro, only to complain? Logic seems lost with some people. The keyboard is good. Not $200 good, but it is good.

      Price doesn’t match the product

      For a $200 case, the fit and finish isn’t what I expect from an Apple product. I like the thinness of the case, and unlike some other people the keys being fold For a $200 case, the fit and finish isn’t what I expect from an Apple product. I like the thinness of the case, and unlike some other people the keys being folded back doesn’t bother me. However, the edges of the case are really sharp, so sharp that they make the device uncomfortable to hold with the case on. Also, compared to my old Logitech case, it’s missing the buttons for volume, brightness, lock, and unlock, and a few others. I’m going to wait on Logitech, This has to go back. I would not recommend purchasing it.
