    Great Keyboard One Flaw

    We all know the issue about how the iPad won’t6 charge with the keyboard attached.

    That is NOT my issue.

    Mine has to do with the backlighting on the keyboard itself.

    No problems with the backlighting one of they best I have seen. The issue is the keyboard goes almost instantly when you stop typing. I do not understand why there isn’t a user controllable option to adjust the time-off to your personal preference.

    Excellent

    I’ve had this keyboard for around 2 months now, and have yet to experience any problems. I can’t explain some of the issues others have had with this product, but as far as I’m concerned this is the best keyboard on the market. I’ve tried almost all the other available keyboards in competition with the Logitech and this one is without a doubt the best one I’ve used. I have never had issues with the charging, smart-connecter apparatus, or buttons on the board itself. A+ in my book.

    Perfect for student/working mom on the go

    I bought this case because I wanted something more secure for my iPad Pro 12.9 than the apple keyboard which felt like a rubbery mess. This Logitech sold me on the pen holder and it has a backlit keyboard!! An added bonus that I wasn’t expecting. I love the soft keys and the fact that there is a hard shell protecting the iPad. The arm rest folds up and makes it great when your sitting on the couch. The kickstand is an added bonus since you can position the pad several different ways. As I am writing this review I am on the couch with a pillow on my legs and the kickstand holds up my iPad just fine. I recommend this keyboard to anyone who wants real life functionality.

    Great product...

    Whatever issues people have had in the past are non existent now. Best keyboard on the market for the 12.9 Pro.

    Logitech Slim Combo

    I use this keyboard daily. It has a lot of nice features, which many of the reviewers on this page have pointed out. Add me to the list of complainers, however, because of how difficult it is to charge my 10.5-inch iPad Pro while the keyboard is connected. The problem has become worse with the latest iOS 11 update. I also experience the intermittent problems with the keyboard not working, so I have to hit the lock key and disconnect the keyboard. It seems like Apple ought to be able to do something about this or stop selling this keyboard.

    Ok but not great

    I was so excited to get this new Slim Combo key board for my new 10.5” iPad Pro. Now a week into it, I have discovered what many other have also discovered, the darn thing does not charge when the keyboard is attached. Typically every night I recharge my iPad. The next morning, not recharged, I thought it was the plug or the cable. Turns out this is a fairly well documented issue with this case. In addition, the case tends to randomly just not work from time to time. What I have found it if I “hit” the lock key to turn the screen off, it will “awaken” the keyboard to then be able to use it on the iPad. Just a couple of minor annoyances for this keyboard case.

    Does not work

    I really wanted to like this keyboard, but it has a couple of serious flaws. First, it prevents the iPad from charging when it is attached and most times, the iPad simply does not recognize that it is connect to the device. I will be returning it and encourage others to consider other options.

    Prevents iPad Pro from charging

    I have two of these, now worthless, keyboards. Apple's update prevents the iPad itself from charging when connected to the keyboard. I bought these from Apple, at their recommendation. Apple should either fix their software or refund these keyboards. Logitech won't stand behind their products, but Apple ought to. Very disappointing!

    Flimsy brittle useless

    My husband bought this for me. The stand barely opens, everything feels cheap and flimsy. I couldn’t believe it was $150. Don’t waste your money

    Keyboard not very good

    This keyboard, when put in a briefcase, turns on the music app and uses the battery life and disables the iPad because it causes the iPad to put in numbers that locks it up. Very frustrating. Also, the help I received from the Apple store was useless. They told me to lower the speaker volume Really really bad

    Logitech has fixed the keyboard. It is now nearly perfect.

    02/01/2018: Many people are rightfully complaining that the Slim Combo for 12.9" iPad Pro was playing music due to the keyboard getting pressed against the iPad when closed. This problem has been fixed. I sent my case back to Logitech and the new case does not have this problem.

    With the fix, this case is the closest thing to a perfect case for iPad Pro. The backlit keyboard is outstanding, the kickstand provides an excellent range of viewing angles and the Apple Pencil holder is great. I have yet to find a case as versatile as this.

    Don’t do it

    I had my case in pink, my son ordered it for Christmas, and a month before the warranty was to expire it broke and this company is the worst company I have ever dealt with I would never buy another Logitech anything. So we are out 149 for a case that didn’t hold up and the company won’t send a new one.

    Causes Charging Problems with iOS 11.1 forward

    I would truly love this keyboard except for one issue: When the iPad is connected to the charger and I then attach the keyboard, it knocks the iPad out of charging state every time. To resume charging, I must disconnect then reconnect the lightning cable. A quick google search revealed that this is a consistent problem with the Logitech smart connect keyboards since the iOS 11.1 update in December. This has apparently been a known issue since then, and I am disappointed that Apple continues to sell this item through their store claiming it is compatible with the current iPads. (I purchased here in late December).

    Until this issue is resolved, I cannot reccommend this keyboard, although in other respects it has been a pleasure to use. The key action is wonderful, the backlight works well, and my keyboard has connected immediately each time I have used it. The kickstand on the shell case has proven to be a feature I use almost constantly. I have not experienced the music issue, but then I do not stream music through my iPad, so my music app is nearly always closed. However, the charging issue is a true annoyance that really needs to be addressed.

    Fantastic, absolutely amazing. Puts Apples keyboard to shame !

    Namely, i was very exctied to receive this keyboard. Arrived as expected within a day. I am blown away by the feel of this keyboard. It’s really fantastic for typing. I am MA student and i do alot of reading/writing so i do spend alot of time on my iPad Pro 12.9. I also have MBP 15” 2017 highest spec. I use it only for poweruser tasks when i need to. Otherwise i always use my iPad Pro and i am super satesfied. Big shoutout to Logitech for making such a lovely keyboard !

    Guess what I’m not typing this review with?

    I hate this thing, the keyboard never works for more then a minute or two. I haven’t had the music issue...but that’s probably because in general it won’t type. I can get to the home screen and change the brightness but that’s it. I’m not at all impressed...especially for the price. I do not recommend this product.

    Awesome case!

    I’ve been using this case for about 2 months and absolutely love it. The case works perfectly - the keyboard has a nice feel, backlit keys are wonderful in the dark, and it’s nice having a separate row of function keys, unlike the Apple keyboard. I also really appreciate having a place to keep my Apple Stylus. The adjustable kickstand is nice, and the ability to easily detach the keyboard and stand the ipad vertically is something very few cases have. It does add a bit of bulk to the device, which is unavoidable given the features/function it has. The only negative comment I have is that the keyboard doesn’t easily fold behind the screen without disconnecting. I carry it in my bag all the time and haven’t had any of the issues other people have described with music playing. Overall I’m totally happy with this case and would buy it again in a heartbeat.

    Stopped working 2nd day

    I was very excited with this keyboard because it was everything I wanted. However, this is the second day of use, and it is not working at all. I will have to return it. Very disappointing!

    I hate the music

    Wish I never bought this keyboard! This playing music is just a waste of battery! Logitech obviously can’t fix it. I find myself having to turn the IPad off all the time. I’m amazed Apple haven’t stepped in and said “Fix It”

    Almost a great keyboard... except for active play button when closed.

    When I first purchased this about 6m ago, I looked and looked for reviews addressing the active play button when the device is closed.

    I just revisited this issue and see that many users are encountering the same problem.

    Since Logitech seems to be ignoring this problem, I figured I'd pipe in and contribute to the volume of criticism.

    This is a fatal flaw for an otherwise well designed and relatively expensive keyboard for a high-end device.

    Design Flaw

    I just bought my iPad Pro and read many reviews on which case to purchase. As I am a Logitech fan, I opted for the Slim Combo; mainly for the protection it offered me plus it had a backlit keyboard and a pencil holder. Surely this was the best design out there.

    After installing my iPad in the case and putting it down, I just happened to catch sight of light coming from my iPad. I thought perhaps I had inadvertently hit the home button or did something else to wake the device. Then I discovered that it was the keyboard being activated simply by me handling the closed case. So, I started looking for an on/off button because, SURELY, this keyboard could NOT have been design this way. WRONG!!!! It was!!

    I needed avoid the horrors other reviews had with music blaring in the wrong places. Luckily for me, I still had the thin styrofoam sheet that came in the box with the Slim Combo. I cut a thin strip of this material and stuck it between the keyboard and Smart Connectors. This breaks the connection when the case is closed and the keyboard isn't activated when I handle the iPad.

    Who would have thought that such a low tech solution would have been needed to save my blushes from my high tech device coming alive at the wrong times.
