    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

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Not so different from other Apple keyboards

    Apple's keyboard (and other product) design choices have been polarizing since the original move to chiclet keys, and more so since the move to the new "butterfly mechanism" keyboards on the new MacBooks and Pros. These keyboard designs are just great for some people and horrible for others, and this keyboard won't change that. But it really isn't that much different than the previous model in terms of tactile response. As everyone has noted, the key travel is a bit shallower than the preceding model---but it is still deeper than on the 12-inch MacBook or the new MacBook Pros. I own both, along with this keyboard, and the Magic Keyboard is, in my opinion, far more similar in feel to the previous wireless Apple keyboard than to either of those laptops' keys. It's true that it lacks a numeric keypad, but it seems that would be something someone would already know about the product before making a purchase decision. Backlighting would be really nice, though.

    Definitely better than the last edition of the magic keyboard

    I like how low it sets and how sensitive the keys are. It feels good to the hand and forgiving to the fingers. The materials are on point and the charging feature really makes things way more convenient because I hated having to buy batteries. I actually plan on using this keyboard at work because I could get so much more done with it. I do not understand why some people hate this keyboard, I like the fact that there is no number pad because I'm not a big user of it anyways. I wonder though, would the controls be the same on a Windows PC? In all though this is my favorite keyboard by far and I'm glad my old keyboard short-circuited today.

    Upgraded my Apple Keyboard to New Magic Keyboard

    The new Magic Keyboard is wonderful, no problems with my MacPro finding it. The flatter design has helped me type better and there is less stress on my wrists. My original Apple keyboard stuck it out with me for 4 years without a problem. This is a great keyboard and very easy to adapt to. Thank you Apple.

    Perfect Norwegian/Swedish developer keyboard

    This keyboard has many "easy" shortcuts to developer characters such as "{", "}". I really often do programming with my MacBook Air wich is using this keyboard and it is awesome that it is so easy to get to the characters I want compared with other keyboard layouts.

    Amazing product

    Pairing with my late 2014 Mac Mini was a breeze. Build quality is good. No need to change batteries is a big plus. Easy to type. Coming from using a PC keyboard with my Mini, I can now use all the keyboard shortcuts properly.

    Fantastic Keyboard

    Whilst I understand that the keybed has a different feel to what many are used to, I find it almost impossible to switch back to any other board. Typing on keyboards that I used to be a fan of feels 'squishy' and requires much more extension to be certain of actuating the keys. The size and look are also great. I do wish that there was a version with a ten-key available as I would happily swap out the Magic Keyboard that I keep at work with that for much better spreadsheet execution. However, for my home setup I wouldn't swap the current Magic Keyboard for anything.

    Fantastic keyboard

    I've always been a fan of apple keyboards - in general, I type 20% faster on Apple keyboards than I can type on the typical logitech, microsoft, dell keyboard, for example. This keyboard does take some getting used to due to the minimal key travel. However, for keyboardists that have a light touch or can reduce the force with which they use to press keys, this keyboard will pay tremendous dividends in terms of reduced fatigue and increased productivity and typing speed. The only downside is for people who need a numeric keypad and of course the price. But, there is no better keyboard on the market.

    Good evolution of the keyboard

    My last apple wireless keyboard lasted 8 years. Love that this one has a rechargeable battery. Typing tactile feels great. Highly recommended.

    It works.

    Some context: I prefer to place my MacBook Pro laptop on a raised stand when I work with it. So a remote keyboard and mouse are essential to me. Also, because I move around quite a bit, portability is crucial.

    Now, my review.

    I've tried other keyboards, and they're fine. But I do prefer this new version of the Magic Keyboard for several reasons. First, it has a small footprint, is lightweight, and the internal battery seems to last for months. And second, I like the overall feel of the new keyboard mechanism and its flat profile. Not everyone will agree, of course - finding the right keyboard is like finding a correct-fitting shoe. But as someone who writes for a living in multiple locations, this has been a solid choice.

    Some folks love it, some folks hate. I happen to love it.

    I picked one of these up about a year ago just to add a bit more Apple to my Apple ecosystem and it has been my favorite keyboard ever since. There's a lot of mixed reviews on here, and it makes sense. A keyboard is something used heavily in computing. Everyone has a different type that works for them. Some of us like flatter keys, some of us love mechanical, some of us enjoy chiclets. If you enjoy big flat keys with little travel distance and don't mind a smaller keyboard, no num pad and so on, you might enjoy this. It pairs with my Mac wonderfully and instantly unlike most other bluetooth keyboard I have used over the years. Also pairs easily with Windows, Linux and TV box machines like the Apple TV 4 and others. If you're a fan of a larger keyboard, deeper key travel and so on, this might not be for you at all. If you're like me and enjoy a keyboard of this particular type, you might really enjoy this. Unsure? Give it a try out. You might just find a new favorite.
