      Not worth the money

      OK, so it is in the small print, but don't expect to be able to find a UK GPB symbol and other 'symbols' are located on different keys, it is a US keyboard layo OK, so it is in the small print, but don't expect to be able to find a UK GPB symbol and other 'symbols' are located on different keys, it is a US keyboard layout only. When using it, if you brush against the screen, you have to fish around to find the script you were typing because it will change screen. It doesn't cover/protect all the ipad. I'm returning mine.

      Expensive Smart Cover

      Although I've had the keyboard less than 24 hours, I've posted this review on the basis that I think the item is unlikely to spring any additional surprises! P Although I've had the keyboard less than 24 hours, I've posted this review on the basis that I think the item is unlikely to spring any additional surprises! PROS: On the positive side, the item does what is described by Apple. Nice strong magnets hold the keyboard firmly to the iPad Pro and it connects without fuss. The keyboard action has a nice feel and as one would expect there is no delay during typing. When folded up it's extremely neat. Yes, it will support the iPad Pro so you can watch a video* CONS: *It is extremely awkward (unsteady) to use on one's lap. So it would not be practical to use anywhere that doesn't have a level surface. The keyboard shortcuts are EXTREMELY LIMITED. As there is no mouse or trackpad to help locate the cursor, the keyboard doesn't add any form of extra functionality. And although this will not effect the majority, it is NOT designed for the left-handed! I use my left fingers or thumb to unlock the iPad so that is on the wrong side when the keyboard is attached.

      Fantastic integrated addon

The Smart Keyboard is lig Having owned all previous 9.7 inch iPad's I have always had to make do with heavy, awkward keyboard cases that added a lot of bulk. The Smart Keyboard is lighter, has no need for any Bluetooth function to be on and is easy to type on. It folds very neatly whether in keyboard mode or just folding back like a normal Smart Cover. Only downsides are the ease to which the case often comes off and the fact you still need a separate case to cover the back of the iPad. That said this has made the iPad feel for the first time like a proper little mini MacBook!

      It's good news and bad news

The pros are that it's lightweight, nicely designed and it greatly enhances the usability of the ipad to the extent that I can more often leave my Mac at home. (Alright it's not backlit but it's supposed to be portable for God's sake). However the cons (or con) is that it WILL stop working - somewhere between 12 and 24 months after you bought it and usually just after the warranty runs out. This happened to me, it happened to most of the reviewers on this site and the forums are littered with complaints by people who have suffered the same thing. The problem appears to be with the magnetic coupling which becomes de-magnetised after a period so that the keyboard is no longer recognised. This is not an isolated problem. It happens A LOT - to the extent that this begins to look like built in obsolescence on Apple's part. It's a problem that really should have been fixed by now. That said, I have just bitten the bullet and bought my second one of these gadgets because I simply find it that indispensible. It took a bit of soul searching to fork out another £140 knowing that this will probably happen again but in the end I figured it was worth it - just. This really would be a much better product if it was just a little bit more reliable - I have cartons of long life milk that have lasted longer than this.

      Rubbish

      I cant believe I am saying this about an apple product, but this is rubbish.

The keyboard doesn't lie flat The keys make typing very difficult The whole thing feels very unstable. The Logitech Create is a far superior product - yes it might be heavier but it is well worth the extra few grams. I probably wouldn't have even bothered leaving a negative review, but for the fact that Apple don't really want it back. It was a gift - but apparently I have to get the person who purchased the gift to call them - have you ever heard of anything so stupid. It is not even as though they will give anyone a refund - just vouchers!

I find it easy to type on, very portable, like the material and the fact you can wipe it clean, no batteries to worry about, can comfortably balance on crossed legs. Cons: A bit on the expensive side, it would be nice if it cam in other colours instead of just grey.
