Just wondering those with have the new pros even at your desk do you leave it attached to your iPad or by the side of your keyboard? You found any difference in battery life?

I only leave mine attached while my iPad is charging; otherwise, I leave it next to my iPad and only attach it to transport it from place to place.

I have both the Apple Keyboard Folio and the Regular Apple Folio. When on the move I use the Keyboard Folio. At home I switch out for the regular folio. Tried without anything on it at home on my 10.5 pro until I dropped it. Decided then to have something on it always.

I keep my pencil attached between uses. I do take it off when I put my iPad in my backpack or messenger bag. Apples magnets work really well but I’ve still had the pencil come off in my bag multiple times. Other than that I leave it connected.

I do as you do but have attached a pencil holder to the back of the case which I put it into when transporting it. The holder and keyboard case look like they were made together.

Thanks for the link!
They make great iPad cases as well. If I weren’t using the keyboard case on my new one I would absolutely put one of the Zugu cases on it. I may still do so if I don’t find myself neeeding the keyboard as much as I thought I would.
