Just curious if anyone else is using the Logitech CREATE keyboard with your iPad Pro and are noticing some lag / keystrokes not being registered?

This is on iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2 PB4 that I have this problem. Starting to wonder if I have a bum keyboard.

*shrugs*, I have only used it when in a browser and not in any apps thus far, and being an Android fan boy, I mostly use Chrome. :p

ive a 128 lte model and once i tap on the screen to start typing, the keys register. not noticed any lag.

can you post some apps you are using so that I Can test this on my end? I could be just slow and not notice.. :p

I notice it the most when typing emails in the native mail app.

ahhhh... grasshoppa...

I have composed a few emails, but Im using Inbox from goog. I do have some POP/IMAP addresses that are setup in the stock mail app.

for grins, I just composed a message using the logitech in the stock mail app. once i tap on the screen to place the cursor i start typing and did not notice any lag.

I peck, so i will use one finger (index) on my left hand and 3-4 fingers + thumb on my right to type and again no issues thus far that I can see...

No, no lag here. I just tried it in both Mail and Notes, and it's instantaneous from keypress to appearance on screen. I'm a very fast touch typist and have been typing for 50+ years. I'll admit the lighted keyboard won me over. I just grabbed some copy and started reproducing it so it would be random and unfamiliar to me.

EDIT: I'm running iOS 9.1. That could be a difference.

I had problems with lagging and keystrokes missing when typing fast..i adjusted in settings and reduced the reponstime for next keystroke and turned off correction..never had the problem again.

Ah! I will look for the reduced response time for the next keystroke and see if that helps. Where exactly do I find that setting though?

I purchased iPad Pro and CREATE keyboard yesterday. First thing I did once I had iPad set up was update to iOS 9.2, so I can't blame the iOS because I don't know if 9.1 worked or not.
I'm about to go and see what the Apple Store says. I've called Apple Care and they said they've heard nothing about it being iOS 9.2. It may be a bad batch of keyboards!

Same here. Got my iPad Pro and CREATE first batch as soon as it came out. Been running iOS 9.2 beta since then, issue has gotten worse and worse. Intermittently though, mostly worse in Message and Facebook app. Notes is not bad.

Fortunately the Smart Keyboard seems to be fine under 9.2. Sad to see Apple screw up (the only) third party Smart Connector accessories which is very expensive. Not sure why this only affects the Logitech keyboard since ... What's so complicated with a keyboard?

I haven't really noticed any lag with the create keyboard.
I have more or less retired it by now though.
When I got the pro it was the only option out there with a Norwegian keyboard.
Now I just use an Apple keyboard when needed instead.

Almost immediately after 9.2 came out, my Create keyboard started misfiring. Big Time!!!! I called Logitech today and was told it was a known issue. The irony of this is that the keyboard was touted to have been developed hand in hand with Apple so that this wouldn't happen. Boo!!!!

There's a lot of reasons I choose not to get the create case and this just adds to it. Feel bad for the people that bought one that have to suffer through this though. Do we know if it's a software or hardware related issue?

Curious if anyone has tried the 9.2.1 PB1 release to see if it fixes the lag issue? Am planning on trying it out tonight - will report back if no one else replies.

I've made some adjustments but my milage is varying
