      Small But Serious Design Flaw

Instead, the weight of the 10.5" i When resting on a flat surface (e.g. a desktop or table) with the iPad seated properly, the Smart Keyboard does not lie flat. Instead, the weight of the 10.5" iPad tips the leading edge of the keyboard up about ¼", making it difficult to type on because the user must either hold the keyboard down on the desk or prop the iPad up from behind. Apple's legendary attention to detail seems to have failed them here. Do not buy this product unless you're prepared to hold down a keyboard that should not need holding down.

      Protection concern

I hope they plan to add a back that is compatible with the Smart Keyboard case. I have seen others question this on the site. Cant tell you how it works because my iPad won't arrive until next week. Its just the protection of the iPad that concerns me. It is quite an investment. Thank you

      New iPad Pro 10.5 Smart Keyboard

      So I was under the impression that the 10.5 version of the Smart Keyboard would have a redesigned key layout; this is not the case--the key layout is identical So I was under the impression that the 10.5 version of the Smart Keyboard would have a redesigned key layout; this is not the case--the key layout is identical to that of the 9.7 version. The picture for this product is a blatant, if not strategic, misrepresentation of what you will receive. SMH...

      Nice and light

      I'm pleased with this keyboard. I find it easy to type on and it's very light. I like that I don't have to charge it separately. I also like that there is no I'm pleased with this keyboard.

I also like that there is no lag time before I can start typing on it, as there was with my old bluetooth keyboard. It would be nice if it also allowed using the iPad in portrait orientation, and had a pocket for an apple pencil.

      A must-have for iPad Pro users

      If you have an iPad Pro you really need to get a keyboard. Pairing this with your iPad really turns it into a laptop replacement. The feel of the keys are great If you have an iPad Pro you really need to get a keyboard. Pairing this with your iPad really turns it into a laptop replacement. The feel of the keys are great, despite being small, I find it enjoyable to type on. My only complaint is there is no way to tell the state of the caps lock. The cover folds into various positions to allow for laptop style typing, up-right movie watching, or horizontal drafting table position. Being magnetically secured it easy to remove and attach. I like reading without the extra weight / bulk of a cover.

      Excellent!

      I purchased the 10.5 iPad Pro this week along with the Smart Keyboard. Even after reading the reviews here, I still wanted to give it a try. Granted, it’s onl I purchased the 10.5 iPad Pro this week along with the Smart Keyboard. Even after reading the reviews here, I still wanted to give it a try. Granted, it’s only been a week, but I absolutely LOVE my keyboard. It’s slim, and the keys feel so comfortable making my typing experience more enjoyable. I actually type faster using this keyboard. Unlike other comments, it lays flat without problem and connects immediately. I rated it 4 stars for lack of protection for my iPad back and loud keys. I love the feel of the keys, but I’m going to be pretty conspicuous in meetings with my loud typing...lol. I just ordered a 3rd party slim, clear cover for the back compatible with the Smart Keyboard. Overall, I’m extremely pleased. I’ll update this review periodically after I’ve used it more.
