    Has anyone yet reported the weight of the folios and keyboard folios? I’d really like to know how much weight they’re going to add.

    No actually measurements yet.

    They're going to add significant weight and thickness because the folio covers both front and back. That's not a problem for those who typically use full cases, but for those of us who go smartcover-front, naked/skin-back, it will be noticeable.

    That's where I'm concerned. I currently use an Air 2 with a smartcover and a skin and am happy with the weight. The 11" isn't too much heavier than the Air 2, but there's a lot more "cover" in the folio. And I assume the keyboard folio is heavier still.

    Is this for the 11” or the 12.9”?

    Sorry to hijack the thread, does anyone have the weight for the 11” keyboard folio?

    Oh gosh, that's really heavy. I just realised the 242grams figure given above is for the folio, not the keyboard folio. If the 11" keyboard folio is 296 then the 12.9" one must be closer to 400. With the 12.9 Pro being 632 grams it will go over 1kg! That's too heavy.

    Does anyone have the weight of the 12.9" Keyboard Folio?

    I’ve decided to stick with the folio and send back the keyboard, it just made the iPad heavier and stops it from being the take everywhere device that I want! If I’m desperate for a keyboard I’ll rethink but the price put me off too!

    The folio for the iPad Pro 11” weighs *running off to find kitchen scales* ... 168g
