I'm using the Zagg folio right now for my Air and I love it.. I need for them to come out with one compatible with the 9.7 soon. Haha
My 9.7 keyboard often seem to not respond when you press the spacebar and i had to pull it off and reattach it to reset it . Would this be a smart connector problem or keyboard problem?
It may but I can't right now, I'm not capable of sitting or standing for that long at present. :shrug:So im guessing taking it to genius bar won't help?
Happening to me too. Even during the demonstration I was giving to a friend about how great the Smart Keyboard was. Doh!My 9.7 keyboard often seem to not respond when you press the spacebar and i had to pull it off and reattach it to reset it . Would this be a smart connector problem or keyboard problem?
I think the best keyboard for the iPad Pro 9.7 is Apple's very own Smart Keyboard. I have been using it for 3 weeks now and I have gotten used to it. Tactile feedback from the keys are good and comfortably soft. Initially I wasn't very happy with it because the keyboard is of a netbook size and adjusting to this size gave me a lot of problems. But now that I have accustomed to it, it's very nice to type with and I can now finally touch type on it at blazing fast speeds. The fabric material of the keyboard gives me a very warm touch as I type, very comfortable to rest my fingers on as compared to the other keyboards which have plastic keys which is cool to the touch.
It's the only keyboard that does not need to run on battery and thus no need for charging and no need to turn on/off and it's the only one that connects to the smart connector of the iPad Pro. This feature is really a winner IMHO. I have previously used Bluetooth keyboards with my iPad Air 2 and it was always a hassle to on/off the keyboard before and after I use the keyboard. Battery runs out halfway thru typing and had to switch to on-screen keyboard. Overall, I hated using Bluetooth keyboards but didn't have any other alterternatives so Apple's Smart Keyboard is a godsend to me.
It's attached to the iPad Pro all the time. I really like this feature because it is always there when I need it, if I don't need it I just fold it over and it's out of sight. Also, it is very slim so the bulk of the keyboard is not very noticeable to me.
This ONLY complain I have about this keyboard and I really do mean ONLY complain is the missing sleeve to house my Apple Pencil. I wished there was a place for me to slot my pencil somewhere on the keyboard cover so that it is always there when I need it. I believe that the iPad Pro, Smart Keyboard and Pencil inseparable and they need to be attached to each other one way or another.
This is just my personal opinion about this keyboard and I am sure some of you guys will disagree with me, that is fine as to each it's own. For those who is on the fence on which keyboard to get, I hope you read my post with an open mind and good luck in deciding the best keyboard for your new iPad Pro.
I use the logitech k811 with my IPP - I love it. It is a stand alone one - it is not a case, but it is a great size, the keys are nice, and I can easily switch using it with the IPP and my phone and ipad mini.
Does the shortcut keys work with the iPad Pro?I am using the Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard (Bluetooth) for my new iPad Pro 9.7 and a second one that I carry in my bag with my iPad Mini 4. It's great that this keyboard can control 2 different products. I have it paired to my iPad and iPhone so that it's easy to switch between either of them for typing. I thought that the fact that the keyboard is split in the middle in order to fold up would be a problem but I actually like that my hands are not squished together like with the Smart Keyboard. Never thought I would be using a Microsoft product but hey it works great and as I read a lot of ebooks on the iPad's I love that the arrow keys turn the pages.
