    A good first effort, but lots of room for improvement

    • Written by Gero V from London

    A good first effort, but I think there is a lot of rooom for improvement on version 2. Quality isn’t fantastic - it feels like it will last, which is good, but its not very refined - for example, the edges of the case/keyboard are sharp enough to cut you. The finish is OK, but pretty basic - a fabric finish would have been nicer and more in keeping with the apple brand. It’s very noisy... really noisy.. enough that colleagues comment when you are tapping away in meetings (don’t sit next to the telecom mic!!). Hopefully I will get quieter with time! I think the lack of travel doesn’t really help. I don’t see why the keyboard could not have been larger - i’m Sure the origami design would allow for this and it would have been nicer to have at least 1 more row of keys for inclusion of short cuts (lifting your hand up to the screen is slow and cumbersome). The lack of backlit keys limits the lusefullness of the keyboard to. Overall, its basic, but get the job done in a portable design. If you are trying to get some serious typing done however, i’d Look for alternatives!

    Lovely keyboard if it lasted

    • Written by charlotte G from southampton

    These keyboards are fantastic to use when they are working. I like the feel of the keys to type on and light weight cover for the iPad. I agree a holder for the pencil would be useful. My issue is I have had 2 keyboards now and owned an iPad pro for 18 months, neither have lasted more than 9 months - the keys stop being picked up by the iPad and i get a symbol that says this accessory is not compatible. Its alot of money for so short a lifespan. Im currently looking for alternative solutions that may last a little longer.

    Completely overpriced - even for Apple standards

    • Written by Matthias M from Peterborough

    The keyboard is of very inferior quality if compared to 3rd party products. The overall feel is extremely cheap. It does not cover your iPad smoothly, and when used on an even desk surface it is wobbly rather than flat.
    The only good point, with it being an Apple product, it works flawlessly with the iPad from the first minute.
    However, it is nowhere near worth the crazy amount of money Apple is asking for!
