      What a disappointment!

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.

      Wish there was another option for Keyboard by anybody

      I really don’t like this Keyboard. My biggest complaint is the magnetic attachment. Anytime I move my screen forward while on stand, the iPad pops off the mag I really don’t like this Keyboard. My biggest complaint is the magnetic attachment. Anytime I move my screen forward while on stand, the iPad pops off the magnetic hold. Anytime the screen isn’t laying flat on a surface, the magnetic hold breaks and the keyboard falls off the iPad. I can’t see how this would protect the iPad at all in a fall. I have had a Logitech Keyboard for an iPad Air and it actually snaps into place and holds well. There isn’t a good way to fold the keyboard away, the only way is to flip it back on itself which keeps the keys exposed and is not convenient. It feels weird that while you are trying to hold the iPad you keep pressing keys. I also really wish there were multiple colors to choose from. You can have any color you want as long as its black. As others have pointed out, it is VERY expensive for what you get. Once Logitech or someone else developes a better keyboard for the iPad Pro 12.9 I will absolutely be ditching this one and getting it. The reason I didn’t give this just one star is the keyboard works very well. The typing feel is vey good. However I just can’t recommend this keyboard due to the weak magnetic hold and annoyance it causes every time it breaks its hold and falls off.

      Many Issues, But Also Some Great Features

      On my keyboard case, the spacebar has a noticeable discoloration or “wear”, right where I click on it all the time. I started noticing this after only a month a On my keyboard case, the spacebar has a noticeable discoloration or “wear”, right where I click on it all the time. I started noticing this after only a month after I got this product (the warranty does not cover cosmetic damage...). This is only a big deal when the lighting conditions are right, but it seems unacceptable given the price you pay for this. Another thing I don’t like is only having two viewing angles. I rarely use the angle where the iPad is almost 90 degrees, and the second angle is only good if I use the iPad on my lap, not on a desk. This case also makes the iPad Pro 12.9” noticeably heavier and inconvenient to hold for a long time while using. The color is overall boring, and I wish there were more color options. Also, why no backlit keys? The thing I like about this case is the keys are nicely spaced, pleasant to click on, and give a nice, quiet click. I also like how the entire case easy it is to clean (the material dries really quick!). The iPad is easy to remove from the case since it’s only attached via magnets, and I love how secure it is when it is in keyboard mode. I discovered from a YouTuber that if you flip the keyboard on your desk so that the letters are facing upside down, you can use this setup for drawing for example (although it looks ridiculous). Overall, I would not recommend this product unless you plan on using your iPad on your desk most of the time, want the convenience of having an all-in-one keyboard, case and stand, and don’t mind the questionable, low quality especially at this price. Apple seriously has a lot to learn and improve on with this product, but there are some things it does well. Hopefully future keyboard cases will be less expensive (while having better quality somehow) and address the common issues.

      Perfect Blend of Form and Function

I don’t really write reviews but felt the need to defend this product. For me, the keyboard case is perfect. It’s lightweight, comfortable to type on, extremely convenient/flexible thanks to the powerful magnets, and I actually like the material. This is not a protective case. For me that’s a good thing because it preserves the aesthetic and overall experience of an amazing Apple product (buy AppleCare+ if you’re worried about dropping your iPad). I’ve worked several full days using this keyboard and feel like it’s the perfect blend of form and function. It is pricey, but I think if you prefer overall experience above all else like I do, then you won’t be disappointed with this purchase.
