      An unwelcome cover on a good book

The sta As a keyboard and cover it does the practical requirements. The keyboard is great quality - buttons are satisfying to type with and respond really well. The stand gives a reliable snap when putting the iPad in one of the two viewing angles, and the magnets hold the folio in place well. The problem is that it feels totally wrong - a plastic feeling outer material takes away from the iPad which is inside, and leaves a beautiful device feeling cheapened by what should be a touchable addition, rather than something which I quickly fold behind the display out of sight.

The keyboard is functional but to have to feel the keys when in a normal browsing orientation feels so very un-Apple. Also it feels like an oversight not to have function keys on an accessory for a 'pro' device. Please, please, please create a superior keyboard folio for the professionals you marketed the new iPad to.

Its not a mechanical keyboard like others available for the older model, and it has no backlighting either, but it feels pretty good to type on. Handy for longer emails and other duties. My main issue with the design is not the lack of lighting or the keys, but the fact that if you hold it in a traditional tablet way, you end up with your fingers that would normally rest on the back of the tablet hitting the keys. Thankfully that doesn't mean the key presses register as apple disable the keyboard in this position, but it feels awful. It also adds a fair bit of thickness to the overall shape. I would like to see the new model from Apple at least featuring some kind of backlit on the keys, for less than ideal lighting conditions. I appreciate that would likely reduce battery life a little, but having the option to have even a minor glow would be great. I think its pretty overpriced for what you get, and really only useful for those who need to type a lot on the iPad on the move, and who wont want to carry around a (typically better) bluetooth keyboard with them.

      An excellent If somewhat expensive product

As a case I love it, whether balancing on one’s knee for typing or positioned on the bed or other soft surfaces to watch movies it’s ideal. The perfect package for me would be the Keyboard Folio without the keyboard as the design is far superior to that of the Folio which offers little stability on soft surfaces due to the narrowness of the stand but unfortunately that’s not an option. So for me it was a little expensive as I only occasionally use the keyboard as the screen keyboard on the 12.9-inch iPad is so good. Having said that I don’t regret the purchase and to be honest any third party Folio will have to go some to encourage me to change from what is an excellent product.

      Basic keyboard at a ridiculous price

It’s not backlit at all, has no shortcut keys like the Logitech one did for the 1st & 2nd gen iPad pro’s. The Ipad pro itself is ridiculously supplied with a 1m cable, which is absolutely inadequate. This keyboard is so overpriced & so not worth it........ Save your money until a third party company brings out a keyboard that does the job much better & for nearer half the price. Shame on you Apple you are pushing us all away.
