      Excellent keyboard

      Before buying this I checked out reviews and I was undecided between buying this or the cheaper Logitech Create Keyboard. On seeing them in person the Logitech Before buying this I checked out reviews and I was undecided between buying this or the cheaper Logitech Create Keyboard. On seeing them in person the Logitech just seemed the wrong choice, it may be cheaper but it effectively turned the iPad into a laptop, which defeats the point. The Smart Keyboard is lighter and yes it doesn't add protection to the back of the iPad pro it is actually a better keyboard. It feels good when typing and unfolds in seconds, the keyboard can be detached in seconds, unlike the Logitech which takes some effort to snap out of the case. Many of the reviews say the keys on the Smart Keyboard are too noisy, that is rubbish. I bought the silicone case to protect the back. This adds a bit of weight to the iPad Pro, but not as much as Logitech Create does. The only thing I can criticise is the price, but I am not going to mark down my rating because of this, I feel I actually paid for what I have purchased. It's a great keyboard.

      Ipad pro keyboard

      When I was bought the iPad Pro for Christmas I was told not to open the box unless I was sure I wanted to keep it, as the store would swap it for a macbook if I When I was bought the iPad Pro for Christmas I was told not to open the box unless I was sure I wanted to keep it, as the store would swap it for a macbook if I would prefer a laptop. I was torn, knowing I should go into the shop after Christmas and properly weigh up which I should have. Curiosity got the better of me. Even though i have a mini and an air, I wanted to see the Pro, so I justified keeping the pro by ordering the smart keyboard claiming that this would be the best of both worlds. It was very annoying that there was three week wait and that no stores anywhere close by stocked them. As an impulse buyer these sort of waits really annoy me. I admit I was dubious, having had a cheaper keyboard for one of the other iPads and giving up on it after a few attempts. Also I sit back on the sofa and tend to rest the iPad on the arm of the chair. I doubted it would feel very stable and Id have to use the iPad on a tray. Despite all these concerns I am totally sold on the keyboard. It is incredibly easy to attach, you don't need to pair it, and importantly it doesn't come detached from the iPad all the time, like the smart covers tend to do on the regular iPads. It is also surprisingly stable when I am resting it on the arm of the chair. I can type away merrily on it without feeling like it might fall off any minute. For the first time, I am using an iPad for things I would usually save for when I am sat at the computer desk on the mac. I still can't decide if I should have gone for the mac book or not, though I think I would definitely have regretted choosing the iPad pro if I didn't have this keyboard. Its amazing how irritating not having a £ sign on the keyboard though. I shouldn't have to google how to bring that up and it drives me potty that I can never remember. I also think its way overpriced at £139. It would be nice if it came in different colours, though to be fair my other 2 smart covers are also grey and I did have a choice when buying them!

      Handy and useful

Is good quality but think the price could be a bit lower. But would recommend.

However the way the keyboard folds out is really awful! I can't imagine Jonny Ives designed this. It flops all over the place and getting it set up is like making origami.
