    I defraud myself

    • Written by Daniel O from San Juan

    It's the worst investment I've ever made, I've had to change it for two months and pretty much the same thing. Life time 9 months. Nor is it worth this keyboard. It did not meet my expectations disappointed me.

    Rapid deterioration in fit with the iPad Pro ....

    • Written by Jeremy W from Bishops Stortford

    ... over the past few months. This keyboard is now highly unreliable. Apart from inconsistent messaging - sometimes it comes up sometimes it doesn't - saying it is not suitable for the device and allowing use of the screen keyboard only, it has also developed an inconsistent tendency to back-delete as if the button were being held down. The only way not to arrest its progress as it deletes text is to back out and save the document as fast as possible. In short, don't buy this until Apple can categorically assure you that these problems have been fixed.

    Love the keyboard and the pencil

    • Written by Mary Jane B from EDMONTON

    I write novels and I love the keyboard. I can now write anywhere. I use the pencil to make notations and scribble ideas when I'm proofreading. I can't say enough about how easy the keyboard and the pencil are to use and how much easier writing has become for me.

    Very unreliable

    • Written by Kevin K from Chester

    Started off loving this keyboard. Simple and elegant. However after using it for a while it keeps breaking down and every 3-5 minutes I get an error on the screen saying This accessory is not supported. Seems there are lots of similar complains in the apple forums. The standard advice of cleaning the contacts does not work. This product is faulty.

    Never Buy One of These

    • Written by Thiago R from Rio de Janeiro

    Broke a week before the guarantee expired. I went to the store afterwards, (my bad) and the recommendation was for me to buy a new one. Let's see, a device that never fell on the floor or something like ir, breais in less than a year and the suggestion is to buy a new one? ������ Never again. This is disposable gadget!!

    A FAST keyboard! "Like butta!"

    • Written by Elizabeth J from Maplewood

    Given the right equipment, I type fast enough to make the keyboard smoke, and this keyboard is definitely smoking. You will find that the keys are perfectly placed for fast typing and minimal errors. The "touch" is subtle enough to seemingly read your mind. There appears to be plenty of room for large fingers.

    Now some advice. I got the iPad Pro 12.9" to be used primarily for art and photography projects. However, it has served temporarily as a stand-in while my Macbook Pro is being repaired. I didn't expect it to match the functionality of the MacBook Pro, which would be considered a real workhorse by comparison.

    But then, necessity is the mother of invention. After tweeking the setup, my iPad Pro is as functional as any laptop.

    First, I got a strong, thin board with a footprint slightly larger than my iPad and keyboard together. Then, I duct taped my iPad and keyboard all around, to secure everything into position and to eliminate shifting. This includes taping the keyboard into the correct triangular shape that props the iPad up.

    Now I can work on my iPad keyboard without limitations, even if I'm hanging upside down, no problem.

    For those who want to fold their iPads up frequently for travel, the next design steps will be theirs to develop. I've got what I need, so I'm done.

    One troubleshooting pointer: if your keyboard connection becomes intermittent, this is because the three-point connection requires the iPad and keyboard to be resting on a flat surface. If your iPad and keyboard are on your lap or are being jostled around, you'll have problems. The solution is to keep something firm and flat, right under these connections. Do this, and all should be well.

    Works perfectly

    • Written by Juergen S from München

    I also agree to the guy before, don't listen to the negative reviews. I'm working with external keyboards since day 1, different manufacturers. This is by far the best one!

    EXCELLENT AND CHEAP

    • Written by Nicolas L from Bogota

    I really like this keboard, it's portable for using it wherever I want. I recommend this product specially for students, as it is fast and light for all the schools task.

    I haven't experienced any trouble with this keyboard, but thats normal for nowadays technology. You may not have the same keyboard and Ipad more than a year, thats why Apple launches every year a new Ipad and keyboard.

    I am actually writing this review with the keyboard.

    Smart keyboard SYOPS working!

    • Written by Victoria C from Morriston

    I LOVE all things Apple, but when this keyboard just stops working for NO REASON at all and you try to have it repaired and the Apple Care just expired and well, that is TOO BAD for you! Just stops working and get an error message "device not supported" and apparently this is a problem many people have seen. Too bad, as much as I love Apple I am NOT HAPPY!

    Silicone back for Gen 2

    • Written by Kevin L from Alpharetta

    Considering purchasing this product, but does not look like it covers the back of the iPad. My father has the iPad Pro 1st Generation case and he has the silicone case to cover the back as well. I really want to buy this Apple Keyboard but only if Apple can release a silicone back for the 2nd Gen iPad Pro like the 1st Gen one. I hope they pay attention to this post because I can't be the only one who wants to see this.

    Five stars all the way. And I've tried others...

    • Written by Brianna L from Ogden

    The Smart Keyboard is a must have for iPad Pro. It is ideal. Compact, easy to use, does exactly what I would expect it to. I misplaced mine and bought a couple others and just ended up returning them. Lesson learned. Stick with the one that was made for it.

    Great Keyboard!

    • Written by Perry N from Rosemount

    I purchased the 12.9 inch iPad Pro and the Smart Keyboard in place of a laptop for my Masters program and it has been a great decision. I have yet to have a situation where I wish I had a laptop instead. Having an iPad that is so responsive and can do really anything I need, as well as something that is highly portable, is a must have for any graduate student. The keyboard is a great addition to the rig. It is highly responsive and I can actually type faster with the iPad keyboard than on my desktop keyboard at work. I highly recommend the product.

    Another Sign of the Decline of Apple

    • Written by Deborah O from North Las Vegas

    This keyboard is a waste of money. Yes, it works great once you get the iPad to recognize it, but that can take some doing and a considerable amount of time and fumbling. I guess for people who use the iPad for fun, it's OK. But it's a WORK tool for me, and an undependable work tool is worse than no tool at all. I've bought several keyboards for iPads, none of which worked very well and were just one more piece of stupid technology I had to haul around, which is what technology has turned into. I thought since Apple made this keyboard, it would work. It does when it feels like it, similarly to the way cats follow commands. But unlike cats, computers are an unfortunate necessity in the workplace, and if they aren't reliable, they're useless. This is one of three pieces of equipment I've purchased from Apple in the past two years that does not do what I very SPECIFICALLY said it needed to do. That's over $5,000 I've spent for tech that is basically used as a doorstop and a paperweight. Apple's sales team can no longer be trusted. Like most sales in the U.S., they will say anything. Thank God for Apple Care. They can't fix the $5,000 of lies, but they will at least tell you the truth. Of course, by then, you've wasted the money.

    Love / Hate Relationships

    • Written by Kelly S from Midland

    I started out really liking this keyboard. It was responsive, reasonably sleek as a cover, not to heavy. The keys felt good if not quite what I prefer, a little flat but a good size.

    At some point, maybe the release of iOS 10, it became 50/50 or 30/70 whether it worked or not. "Accessory Not Supported" was the taunt from my iPad, leading to restart, removal, cleaning of contacts, and seeing if it worked. None of these steps improved the performance.

    Apple has a problem that as of when I stopped using the keyboard they hadn't addressed. Caveat emptor, folks.
