My reasoning for the low review is three fold:
1) It takes a really long time to wake up, wake up the iPad, and unlock the iPad. It will generally take 4+ keystrokes for the keyboard get working again. I don’t think I am being impatient, even going so far as to pause between each keypress to see if that helps. Nevertheless, nothing seems to expedite this process.
2) At its core, this is a Bluetooth keyboard. I have used an Apple Magic Keyboard with my iPad since the original came out. The number of keystrokes that are missed by this keyboard, truly is unacceptable. I could chalk it up to the more cramped keyboard space/smaller keys or the difference in key travel, but it seems to drop about 5-10% of my keystrokes. Typing this review on the device was painstaking as I watched auto-correct continuously add in missed characters or need to go back to correct words. I did not experience this with the Magic Keyboard nor other much cheaper Bluetooth keyboards.
3) Given the hinge design, one of the iPad features I use most is now impossible to use without not seating the iPad fully in the hinge. I use split-view constantly, but the hinge design moves the edge of the iPad below the edge of the keyboard, making it extraordinarily difficult to summon the split-view screen. I find myself sliding the iPad up and down in the hinge, which is annoying to say the least, dangerous to say the worst.
Lastly, and not a problem with this keyboard but something to keep in mind if you opt to purchase the back case as well: The optional back case does not support using the Apple Smart Cover. It would be a fabulous change to the back cover to remove the approximately 5 mm of case material and allow users to take the iPad out of the keyboard but still protect the screen when not in use. Since this keyboard doesn’t fully rotate, using the iPad as a tablet is cumbersome and having this as an option would be a big positive. I’m sure they have marketing reasons for this design choice, but seems like a missed opportunity.
I am 90% sure it will be returned given these issues, which is sad because it seems like a solid alternative to a poorly reviewed Smart Keyboard from Apple or the bulky options from Logitech. But when I am almost $150 invested in the product and having a poor experience, there is nothing else I can justify.
This keyboard looks and feels like it’s as good in quality as the iPad itself. It has some good weight to it and supports the tablet no matter how far back you lean it. It came packaged as beautifully as Apple packages their products (see photos), and I was able to register it for the lifetime warranty successfully. I honestly think that it’s built to last, physically.
Everything was super easy to use. The tablet grips are secure, yet at the same time it’s easy to slide the keyboard on and off of the tablet as needed. Connecting via Bluetooth was a ten-second process from start to finish and I never had problems.
The color is about as close as you can get to Apple’s pale gold, off by the slightest shade but undetectable unless you’re consciously comparing them side by side (see photos). This was actually pretty important to me and I was really very pleased with the color match.
However, after using this for a week, there are two significant flaws that, to me, make it not worth the money (even though I got it on sale and used a discount code).
First, the keys do require a little more “oomph” when pressing them, which I never really got used to. I had to watch what I typed because I constantly seemed to miss characters. Maybe mine was defective, but for the price, I expect better key responsiveness than that.
Second, with the keyboard attached, I am physically unable to reach the bottom of my tablet to be able to swipe up and access the dock (and use some other features such as split view). The keyboard physically blocks access to the bottom of the screen, so I have to slide the tablet up off the grips about half an inch before I can use that menu. To me, this is a huge design flaw. The dock is too important a function to be disabled with the keyboard attached.
I wanted to like this keyboard because it looks and feels really nice, but ultimately it just isn’t practical and I opted to return it. Instead I am now using the Earto, which, though much cheaper, is surprisingly so much better functionally.

Th next issue is that i have had serious reliabilty issues with it. The first one I gt, after a few weeks, there were several keys that i kept missing in my sentences. I thought maybe i was just missing the key (because its a bit cramped whih is totally acceptable considering the size of the iPad) but i took a closer look and saw that on some of the keys you had to press down harder tan on others. It was’t that the keys didn’t work, just that most of the keys you could type pretty fast on, but others you had to press a bit harder making sure that the key went all the way down (and then pressing down even a little more on some of them). If this was how al the keys worked then that would be understadable, you just have to be a more careful and deliberate typist (i.e. slamming each key one at a time). But I typ relatively quikly and so this was very frustrating. Consistency is important in a keyboard. So I got in touch with Amazon and they were really great about replacing th keyboard. I’ve had this one about 3 weeks now and i’m starting to find similar issues :( Particularly pronounced on the backspace key, but also on some of the other keys.
My battery is running a little low on it today (its actually got pretty good battery lfe) but i’m Finding that the backlight keeps turning on and off intermittently.. fair enough if the battery is low, turn off the backlight.. but its weird to keep turning on ad off when typing, and then not responding to pressing the button for the light.
The thing i find the most frustrating with it howeer is the mushy feel of the keys :( this is the one that’s really upsetting. All the reviews etc said that it feels like a MacBook keyboard.. it doesn’t. Thekeyoards on the Mac (the older ones, not the newer butterfly models) had a satisfying click feel to them. These ones have reall nice ke travel but then when they get down to the bottom, its like they’re cushioned or something.. its so unsatisfying to type on. It doesn’t need to be mechanical or anything (obv) but i had a £20 plastic keyboard for my 2018 iPad which was much lighter and actually had a much more satisfying click when the key went down. (To be clear, that keyboard had some major shortcomings too but they were more forgivable considering the price).
I don’t know if i will ask for another replacement and give it one mor go (like i said, I REALLY wanted to like this keyoard) or if i will get rid of it and go for the official apple one because i really, really like the form factor of this one. The design is great (the packaging too is fantastic!), the hinge is perfect (in that it is sturdy and goes back more than 180 degrees), and the battery life is pretty decent, its just disappointing when it comes to the actual typing... which is kind of where it counts...
The keyboard itself adds some bulk and weight to the iPad but the trade off is you get a really nice keyboard and the typing experience is as close to a real MacBook as Ive had from any keyboard. The set up is dead easy and it has all the shortcut functions you generally need which all work flawlessly.
I love the fact its made out of aluminium, and really official apple keyboard should have been something like this. The grip is sturdy and holds the iPad really well.
So if your in the market for a iPad keyboard and your trawling through reviews and YouTube videos, don’t, just get this one, you will love it, especially if their tyoping experience is your priority.
Doesn't go past 180°, which is a shame as I like that.
Sometimes a little slow to wake up and doesn't cache your key presses so you have to wait and let it catch up before carrying, which you would expect when you first turn it on, but it's a bit overzealous with timing out and going to sleep (perhaps you can alter that, IDK)
So probably a 4.5 but a 4 seems a little harsh, so 5 it is
