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.

      Amazed it has not been recalled

      It was great when I first got it but in about 7-8 months it has almost stopped working entirely. I use my iPad for school notes and I cant keep up with the clas It was great when I first got it but in about 7-8 months it has almost stopped working entirely. I use my iPad for school notes and I cant keep up with the class if I have to spend 5 minutes trying to get my keyboard to respond. It wouldn’t be so bad if the keyboard was about a third of the price but for the money apple ask for the Smart Keyboard it simply isn’t good enough. So many people seem to be having similar issues, I’m amazed that there hasn’t been a recall for these keyboards as their low quality and lack of durability make a mockery of the apple brand and insult it’s customers

      The faulty connections message fix.

      I have had the keyboard for just about one year and I’m getting a message saying accessory not supported. To all with this problem disconnect the iPad completel I have had the keyboard for just about one year and I’m getting a message saying accessory not supported. To all with this problem disconnect the iPad completely from the keyboard blow any dust of the side near the connections. (This issue is more common in the summer as the keyboard doesn’t cope with the heat very well) Then at an angle face down, push to the magnetic bar until it magnetically connects. Then tilt upright and it should work like usual.

      Keyboard doesn't consistently connect with the iPad

      I bought this to serve as a more practical solution for typing on the move i.e. it would be both portable, lightweight, convenient and easy-to-use. Unfortunatel I bought this to serve as a more practical solution for typing on the move i.e. it would be both portable, lightweight, convenient and easy-to-use. Unfortunately the keyboard does not form a consistent connection with the iPad - the three pins that magnetically connect to the side of the iPad appear to be misaligned, meaning I have to manually slide the keyboard left and right in order to get it to work. This is a constant frustration and given the high price-point, was surprisingly poor. I did contact Apple Support and they offered me a replacement keyboard - which suffered from exactly the same problem. Given the vast number of people that have complained online, I'm surprised that Apple haven't done anything to resolve the issue. The keyboard works great when the connection is stable, but I shouldn't have to realign the connectors every time I want to use it.
