A few days ago I bought an iPad Pro 11”, a Pencil and the SKF, to replace my aging iPad Pro 10.5” (it was the 64 Gb version, almost full).
Im satisfied by the iPad, but i have a doubt regarding the keyboard. Sometimes I use the iPad as a tablet, without a desk, and I’m not sure how to put the keyboard. The most natural way to do that would be to reverse the cover and put the keyboard on the back, but I’m afraid the flexible cable connecting the keyboard to the back cover, where it takes power, will ruins that way.
is it ok, according to your experience, to keep the keyboard folded in that way ?
Thank you.

I’ve been using mine exactly how you’ve described above in tablet mode—with the keyboard folded all the way back—for over a year now and have had no issues.
