Are all of the electronics housed in the keyboard section of the case? That is to say, there is nothing but fabric and structural support in the lid portion?

I would really advise against this keyboard. I had this for my iPad Pro and the keyboard left some unsightly scratches in the screen from normal use. Thankfully, Apple replaced my iPad at no charge. If you google Logitech create and screen scratches you can see some other people have the same issues as I did.

I asked about electronics because I'm going to buy a used one and turn it into a stand alone keyboard (cut off the bottom) that I can use with my Smart Cover clone.

Would a screen protector have solved the issues people had with the Logitech case?

ive had the keyboard since launch day as well as the ipad pro.

i dont have any scratches on the tablet. obviously people handle their items differently than others, and i want to go on record to say that in my experience i have not seen any scratches on the tablet whilst using this product.

That is good to hear. I also handle my items very carefully and I did nothing to cause these indentations/scratches in the screen. Just wanted to go on record and say that as well.

I'm not sure because many users like myself have noticed that it's caused from the screen touching the metal parts of the keyboard when the case is closed. The iPad never leaves my desk so it wasn't pressed against anything that would have caused this other than the keyboard.

to say "I would really advise against this keyboard" is a bit over board. that just spreads fear and doubt in an otherwise stable and quality working device.

as we all know most folks post on these kind of forums looking for help (rarely do many people post up with positive posts out of the blue) and many mass produced items will be less than perfect off the assembly line, but highly advising against it just is a bit much since other users (myself included) have not had any issues with any abrasions or physical damage from using this keyboard daily since november. :)

I was just advising him to look at reviews on this case. No need to get aggressive. Have a great day and enjoy your case :)

OP, if you hadn't had a chance to look, I found a discussion about others having a similar issue here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7379484?start=15&tstart=0

But this probably shouldn't be a problem for you since you plan on cutting it in half. I wish I could've kept it. It's very reminiscent of the MacBook style keyboard. Good luck with your project!

Hey guys. I just got this keyboard case. I have a screen protector on my iPad so I am not worried about the screen scratching. So far, I love the way it types and feels and I like that it is always on when I connect it. My biggest problem with it is the keys dim way too quickly when I am not typing. I'm sure there aren't any setting I could change to make this stop happening, but seriously. I am a film teacher and I am in the dark almost all day. I lift my hands from the keys for 5 seconds and the back lights dim and I find myself squinting at it. Anyone else notice this, or know something I don't know about changing this?

Thanks!

Logitech just reviewed their new product for the iPad Pro and it's not a 9.7 keyboard. Boo!
