      Very poor quality for the price

I'm not alone there are hundreds of people experiencing the same fault on Apples support communities site. £169 for something that can barely last a year is very poor indeed.

      Expensive but worth it for some

While I didn't want a case per say because I wanted to remove it when I was say using the iPad as a tablet. The Logitech keyboard for the Pro I had heard some issues with scratching the screen, so avoided that and splashed out on this keyboard. It does take some time to get used to typing but hey, was able to code up a website with no trouble. Pros: It feels like quality materials, looks beautiful and doesn't add as much weight. Cons: It is clunky, because it folds back in on itself so the keys don't touch or damage the screen there is a flap that may annoy.

      Good laptop alternative

      I purchased this keyboard as I'm about to start university and it was an alternative to a new lightweight laptop. I must say I am impressed with the overall des I purchased this keyboard as I'm about to start university and it was an alternative to a new lightweight laptop. I must say I am impressed with the overall design, whist the iPad is stood there is no question of it's stability if you're tapping the screen. The keys have a nice feel when you're typing, just like a laptop and they're covered in a fabric that seems pretty hard wearing. The fact that it's connected via the Smart Connector means it saves time that you would use connecting to Bluetooth keyboards. The one extra this item might benefit from is a backlight however the light from the iPad screen keeps it lit pretty well. Considering everything I would be more than happy to recommend this keyboard to any of my friends or family.

      Completely disappointed

      I got talked into buying one of these from 02 when buying the iPad Pro 12.9 When it arrived I was quite impressed but this quickly changed, it’s got so many f I got talked into buying one of these from 02 when buying the iPad Pro 12.9 When it arrived I was quite impressed but this quickly changed, it’s got so many faults , the fact it doesn’t cover the back of the iPad is a bad design so you have to buy another case to go with it, the thing falls off every two minutes when moving it and the keyboard bearly works without taking it off and putting back on again, when watching tv it’s hard to get the screen to sit at the right level it’s always tilted back to far and needs something wedging in the case to sit upright more, for 169.00 this a rip off and not worth the money . Apple I love your products but this one is bad in so many ways , to be honest I only have one good thing to say about it and that’s the fact it didn’t need extra power and worked off the iPad which means zero messing around. If anyone is reading this thinking about buying it DONT save your cash and buy a better version online, unless apple do an updated version in the future.

      Not well thought out ...

      It seems to me that Apple launches a product and somewhere along the customer journey they seem to miss out on how the customer will actually use the product. T It seems to me that Apple launches a product and somewhere along the customer journey they seem to miss out on how the customer will actually use the product. The case is clumsy and toppled over very easily if you are using it to just view the screen. There is nowhere to keep the pencil which has now become redundant as I dislike carrying separate pens. Other alternative cases seem to be able to carry the pencil but you cannot attach the keyboard. Others will catch up ... Apple must remain true to one of its core values ... customer first.
