What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Apple Smart Keyboard For iPad 10.2-Inch, iPad Air 10.5-Inch, iPad Pro 10.5-Inch
  • It's very thin and light - good for sitting on a desk and looking good but flimsy and unstable on your lap.
  • Perfect fit and very light to hold and use. No charging is needed and it is a very versatile solution.
  • The keyboard is a nice size and my (limited) typing feels comfortable.
  • Really sleek/slim design, holds firmly onto iPad using the magnetic connection.
  • The keyboard feels super light, nice and has a surprising amount of travel.
Apple Smart Keyboard Folio For 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • There is enough weight to it that allows for it to feel protective but not overbearing.
  • Its so thin - I really was impressed how Apple pulled this off.
  • It is lightweight convenient to carry around and it gets its battery Life from the iPad so that’s one less thing to remember to charge daily.
  • The profile is slim enough to fit into a small bag and move with it.
  • I love how small the keyboard is and how useful it is but the magnet that holds iPad needs to be stronger.

What customers say about "Keys"
Apple Smart Keyboard For iPad 10.2-Inch, iPad Air 10.5-Inch, iPad Pro 10.5-Inch
  • It’s slightly bigger than the latest iPad Pro keyboard case therefore it’s easier to type on.
  • A good keyboard for the iPad pro. Been using it for a while and its far easier than typing on the touch screen.
  • Really pleased with this keyboard. Very nice to type with.
  • It doesn't provide an ESC key which is really a miss for this kind of money.
  • Only thing I miss here is backlight, then it would be price worthy.
Apple Smart Keyboard Folio For 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • Typing it feels really smooth. Even though the keys aren't as tall on a laptop, it still provides enough ease to write emails or documents on.
  • You can fold the keyboard back around to the back of the iPad and none of the keys will work.
  • The keyboard is great for typing and as a stand for my iPad.
  • No backlight keyboard and not as much typing feedback as a classic keyboard.
  • The keyboard is not even real keys. It’s just a plastic thingy with raised letters.

What customers say about "Features"
Apple Smart Keyboard For iPad 10.2-Inch, iPad Air 10.5-Inch, iPad Pro 10.5-Inch
  • Great keyboard attaches to IPad easily and acts as protection for your screen also.
  • This is fab easy to use and acts as aprotective cover for screen.
  • Great bit of kit which takes its power direct from the iPad so no worries about separate chargers or cables.
  • The keyboard itself is easy to connect and does provide a good iPad cover too, as well as a stand. Well designed product.
  • The keyboard is cramped and not mechanical, it can't be used if detached from the iPad.
Apple Smart Keyboard Folio For 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • You don't need bluetooth or anything. It uses the smart connector so you just pop it on and go.
  • No dead batteries. Since it uses the smart connector instead of a bluetooth connection, you also never have to worry about keeping it charged.
  • It connects directly to the iPad, so there is never any lag or cables or charging needed.
  • There’s no spacing in between the keys, so even if I spilled something on it, it won’t damage my keyboard.
  • Super keyboard, easy to connect and configure, I recommend it.
