    im frustrated that Apple aren't offering a UK layout of the iPad pro keyboard.
    Obviously a cost cutting measure but Apple are hardly a company with a small budget.

    @ and " keys reversed and £ not $

    The lack of a € doesnt affect us quite as much.

    Hardly a biggie overall really.

    Even MacBooks have the @ and " the American way round... Not checked for the £. It's just part of using a Mac - within a couple of days its fine and not an issue ?

    The @ bit through me initially when I got a Mac but honestly everythingg is there just a bit different. There are bigger limitations with Apple than that.

    But I do get your basic argument about catering for markets outside the US. One of my biggest gripes I Apple focuses too much on the domestic market and not enough on its global ones. UK and EU especially. Probably cos Android is so prominent here.

    I would just like to know how the Pro keyboard cover feels. Tactile feeling on a keyboard is very important to me.

    £ is on 3 the same as a MacBook. € is on 2 the same as a MacBook. The only difference is the keys do not show this. This is if you have selected "English (UK)" in the hardware keyboard settings.

    Suprisingly good. I generally use my rMBP at a desk, and use an old A1016 (the pre aluminium apple keyboard) as I like keys with lots of travel, but the smart keyboard feels quite nice to type on.

    I always thought the biggest difference was just the shape of the return key between US and GB

    Are they? Mine is set to English UK. How do I get the pound and Euro symbols?

    Shift + 3 is £. Alt (option) + 3 gives the #.

    Alt (option) + 2 gives €.

    Hmm I can't get that to work. On the IPP smart keyboard right?

    Yes, my post was typed on one. My hardware keyboard is "English (UK)". Under there I have selected British, which might be the cause of the difference.

    £ ah! (Option + 3)
    ¢ (option + 4) I assume that is supposed to be a Euro symbol? No, it's a US cent I think. Can't find the Euro.

    Interesting, must be a setting difference somewhere between us. ¢ is the same though.
