Thanks for this.I am typing this on my new iPad Pro 10.5 with the Smart Keyboard and it is very stable. I have found that since the iPad Pro came out and I starting using my iPad with a keyboard that I use it MUCH more than I use to. I know keyboards existed prior to the iPad Pro but I never found one that I liked and while it sounds small, always having the keep another device charged didn't work well for me.
Also, I find that I stick a couple fingers through the "triangle" on the ride side where the keyboard folds up when you use it and use my thumb to scroll. It feels very natural and works well.
Long winded way to say.....I LOVE IT. On the lap on the couch, in the recliner, on the bed.....at the office, on a plane, everywhere. It's well worth the money for me.
There was a thread somewhere around this forum, maybe in the main iPad forum, where someone mentioned straightening it out themselves, and someone else mentioned an Apple Store manager fixing theirs by slightly bending it real quick on the table. The way they described it confused me, but seeing your message just reminded me to do it so I did. I took off the case and flipped it open, and turned it upside down. You'll notice that the keyboard won't fold back beyond a certain point if you go the opposite direction. What I did was pressed some of my fingers spread out along the hinge to apply a more even pressure. Then, taking my thumbs hooked around behind the corners, I slowly hyper extended it just a little bit, using slow movements, applying even pressure, and did it multiple times. It didn't take much, and my first attempt was successful. Total time to fix it: 30 seconds. I kid you not. Works beautifully and now the keyboard doesn't look stupid. Time will tell if it holds this form. Before doing this, mine was probably about 1cm or so out of alignment hovering above the table top. I didn't feel like I was applying very much pressure or anything. I'd be comfortable recommending this to anybody as long as they start slow like I did. Just don't be an idiot and snap it back or put a ton of pressure on it or on one spot or corner.What is the trick? I'm curious.
You, sir, are ingenious! I have been fighting to keep this thing stable for days since I got mine and this is a brilliant idea.Also, I find that I stick a couple fingers through the "triangle" on the ride side where the keyboard folds up when you use it and use my thumb to scroll.
