    Fantastic—but ruined by arrow keys.

    I love everything about this keyboard with one exception: the up and down arrow keys are condensed to the size of one key. I've tried painstakingly to adjust to the change, but I can't do it. Sadly, I have to find an alternative. If you use arrow keys often, I highly discourage this keyboard.

    Magic keyboard-5 star rating

    This keyboard has so much eased my typing like never before... I really think it's a wonderful product & pays out every dollar!! It carries a list of conveyances, but the number 1# upgrade I found in this keyboard is its flat keys making it so much easier to move on typing
    I recommend this product very strongly

    Great Buy For People Wishing To Use TWO keyboards to type a simple sentence

    I purchased two of these in the last few years. Why? Because the first one broke, then I purchased the standard keyboard - it also quit working, went back to the magic keyboard and now am using it to write this email along with my little character viewer. You might not be familiar with this cute little keyboard that can pop up on your screen, but if you buy one of these you'll get to know it well. What you have to do is....type the letters that work on your magic keyboard, stop...look for your little keyboard on the screen, and then type using that for the keys that don't work on your expensive replacement keyboard. I suppose if you are looking for a challenging brain, hand coordination activity this is the perfect product for you, otherwise it is an absolute as* pain.

    It just works

    I'm not sure why this thing has such mixed reviews because mine works flawlessly and it is why I keep buying Apple products. They just work. It's the same size as the keyboard on my 15" MacBook Pro so I'm already used to the size. I bought it with the mStand that is also sold on here and now it feels as if I have a desktop computer but I get to keep my portability. 10/10 would recommend.

    Falls WAY short of expectations

    As other reviews have stated, this keyboard feels like using a cheap laptop keyboard. Honestly, the keyboard in my Early 2011 MBP felt more solid than this. With moderate pressure it bows in the center. The quality of this keyboard does not match the iMac that it came with.

    Love it...

    I just wrote one of these for my magic mouse 2 so on to the magic keyboard. I recently built a home office since I returned to college to finish my degree. I don't take technology purchases lightly and even though I read some bad reviews on here i went to the apple store and tried this out along with the mouse. Im using it on a MacBook air 13 inch with I7 processor that I have had for a year and it works flawlessly. The battery life is awesome just like the Mouse and I spend a huge amount of my day on here with online college classes, work, shopping, bills etc. As for the battery life I do not understand the bad reviews at all. It holds a charge for quite awhile. I also don't agree with the reviews on the size of the keyboard. It is the exact same size as my MacBook Air's keyboard, literally, except the keys are just a hair bigger but not truly measurable except with a mic. So I guess if your used to those sprawling huge keyboards of HP and the like it might seem smaller, but it you own a Macbook it is not. Grab one at the apple store and compare it yourself. Connecting it to my MacBook was the same as the mouse, just turn it on and turn on bluetooth=DONE. Dont listen to the bad reviews, it is awesome.

    Form over function, but I love that!

    This keyboard isn't backlit, doesn't have a numpad, doesn't have crazy travel distance or anything like that.

    But it does look very sleek! I used to have a Logitech G710 and I loved that thing, but for some reason I keep coming back to this keyboard.

    Yes, on paper it's a worse keyboard. But it's so sleek and elegant, I can't help but love it.

    Plus the perfect bluetooth and half a year battery doesn't hurt!

    A step backward

    As always, nice basic design and aesthetic, but...

    Ergonomics are terrible. Lies TOO FLAT, key spacing is TOO CRAMPED and both of these cause user fatigue and incessant typos. Also, why eliminate the numbers pod/area on the far right of the keyboard?? Who wants a separate peripheral just to input numbers? Although the late 2013 Keyboard was flat, it's got a slight angle, the keys are spaced better and there's a conventional numbers pod, so I went back to that one.

    Just terrible....

    It lies perfectly flat on the table and tweaks my wrists when I use it. Because it's so small, I am constantly missing keys.

    What's the point of an external keyboard that's no bigger than my MacBook's?

    Amazing quality, worth the price. Does have one small issue though!

    I bought this because I wanted to start using my macbook pro as a workstation connected to a couple of external monitors. I was using a old USB external keyboard, so I decided to get the Magic Keyboard to compliment my apple set up.

    First of all, the build quality is great. The keyboard is lightweight, but feels very solid. Once its on my table, it feels planted and doesn't move around. The keys feel great and are a joy to type on. The power button has some weight to it so I know it won't accidentally flip ON when I have it moving around in my backpack. Battery life seems pretty good. It seems to drop about 3-4% after a day's use (about 8 - 10 hours). Plus, the lightning cable (included) makes charging painless.

    There is however one small issue and it isn't really a fault of the product. Occasionally I am noticing some lag when I try to type. It might take a second or so for a key press to register but then its fine again. I believe this is due to the fact that I am living in an apartment and I am surrounded by 50+ wireless networks. There is a huge amount of interference from various 2.4ghz broadcasts around me, so I am assuming that is causing this issue. I tried using the keyboard at work where there isn't as much interference besides a couple of networks and a few phones, and it didn't have any issues at all. So, keep that in mind. I would give this a 5/5 if it wasn't for this issue. While it isn't a big deal, it can be very annoying and I wish there was some wizardry that would have gone into remedying this problem.

    The best small keyboard out there

    I am a liker of small, notebook-feel keyboards. I guess most people who have reviewed this keyboard are not. It takes a little getting used to, and I mean very little - like the first hour or two. I like it so much better than the Logitech I got to replace my first magic keyboard, which died on me. If you're a coder or somebody who's used to big keyboards, I wouldn't recommend. I love it.

    I like it - works very well . .

    My old trustee Apple Bluetooth keyboard, the one with batteries in it, finally started showing its signs of age and it needed to be replaced so I ordered what I thought was the same keyboard only to find that it's the new version, no batteries, connects via USB for charging, is FLAT, and has slightly different upper and lower arrow keys.

    Now I'm not an extensive typist but I type every day, reports, tons of emails, etc. so as soon as I opened the box and discovered that the keyboard was a different design and style I immediately went to the reviews and started to read them. And boy, there is no shortage of negative reviews, the keys, the keyboard, failure, you name it. I always pay attention to the negative reviews and certainly the number of negative reviews versus positive reviews.

    Well, of course all I can speak is for myself and I immediately LOVE IT! For me the typing is smoother, the keys are smoother, it just feels better and easier to use. I know that certainly is subjective but to me there's a tremendous difference between my beloved old battery keyboard and the new version. I fully expected not to like the new version but I'm pleasantly surprised.

    My advice to you is simple, try it for yourself. Not everyone has the same experience and likes the same things. For me the new keyboard is PERFECT!

    Works keyboard in history

    Not much to add. Bluetooth works perfect. It never fails. Love that. However, i don't think I've ever made as many mistakes as I made when typing here. Over and over. I can't get used to it. I've had other Apple keyboards and I've had 4 laptops. Nothing was as bad as this. Except maybe the MacBook Pro 2017... i can't believe Logitech has a MUCH better keyboard. The feeling is better and I don't get have to correct all the time. Love it the logitech keyboard for iPad pro. Please, Apple, just copy that technology.

    Best Bluetooth Keyboard for iOS & "Android"

    After asking around for the best keyboard for an Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S2), I was discouraged that I would not be able to find a decent keyboard. I got a used iPad Air from one of my family members and decided to switch from Android M to iOS 10. The transition was not without it's quirks, but I finally have managed to really like my new iPhone (6 Plus) and iPad Air. The Magic Keyboard, by the way, is excellent. Great feel, and amazing battery life. I have used it for a couple of hours every day for the last week, and it's still at 100%!!

    I love the fact that this keyboard works so well with iOS.

    But...... Apple has either lied or not researched the exact compatibility with various OS's. This keyboard works for Android!! Dare I say, better than iOS?
    An Apple specialist that I chatted with online said that it would not work with Android. So, now that I have bought various adapters and spent a good portion of money trying to transition from Android to iOS, and I find out that I didn't have to do so in the first place, I'm kind of ticked off.

    I could have easily got the keyboard for my Samsung tablet (Which is an amazing tablet, by the way), and given Apple my business as well.

    I think that Apple is a good company that builds great products, but someone somewhere needs to update the compatibility info for the Magic Keyboard. It does work with Android!! And, there's nothing wrong with spending $100 for an "Apple" keyboard with a "Google" Operating System.

    Great keyboard, but Apple doesn't even know their own product. And they don't tell the truth about compatibility.

    Great keyboard, quit with no warning after 6 years

    I've had this keyboard for about 6 years with absolutely no issues, but it quit without warning. I originally bought it to go with my Mac Mini. In reading through some of the reviews, this seems to be what happens. Very inconvenient as I was in the middle of an important document and had to borrow a larger Microsoft, corded keyboard from my husband to finish; thankfully it worked just fine. Throughout the past 6 years, however, the Apple keyboard has worked flawlessly and met my needs for a small keyboard as I have a small desk space. Love the chiclet keys! I'm not happy about the expense, but if it lasts as long as the last one, I will be very happy. My one wish, though, would be for a backlit keyboard like my MacBook Pro.

    horrible

    It is basically kind of like a laptop keybord in both size and functionality. For a full-size Mac, I'd like a much bigger keyboard, and I'd like to avoid having to use the Fn key. The fact that it's wireless does not make it any better for me.

    Great, except for arrows -- Get an older model

    The keyboard is fine, except for the arrows. I cannot get used to them, and cannot touch type anymore. I HIGHLY recommend an older bluetooth keyboard model which has the proper arrow keys. These are useless, and I keep hitting shift, or the wrong arrow, or just plain cannot find them. It turns out this is SUPER FRUSTRATING.

    Nice keyboard, but...

    The keyboard is nice, but it has a major problem to me: I continuously mistype arrow up instead of down and viceversa.
    This is a big issue.
