      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!

      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 thin 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.

      Pointless and an utter waste of money!

      I purchased this Smart Keyboard to use with my new 9.7 iPad Pro and was at first very excited to use it. The new look keyboard felt very nice to type with and I purchased this Smart Keyboard to use with my new 9.7 iPad Pro and was at first very excited to use it. The new look keyboard felt very nice to type with and the Smart keyboard only added a little bit more weight and bulk to my iPad Pro. I then gave it a try in 'Watch' mode and this was when it completely and utterly fell apart. The viewing angel was all most straight up direct and made watching anything on my iPad virtually impossibly. I went to my local Apple store and looked at other keyboards and they all had this issue. I find this utterly and completely pointless and a very poor design flaw by Apple. For the price of this Smart keyboard I would have expected it to be perfect but its far from it. Apple's accessories at the moment are really poorly designed, not what I have come to expect from Apple.
