    I received the Smart Keyboard for 12.9 iPad Pro on Monday. It is a joy to type on.

    However, upon unboxing; I immediately saw wrinkles in the fabric around the keys. To some degree, there are wrinkles around all the keys, but it is particularly heavy just below the 4 arrow keys. It is as though you see a cross hatch of wrinkles from where a machine pulled the fabric tight, but not tight enough to prevent the wrinkles.

    Is this how all of them look due to the fabric covering?

    Thank you for letting me know if you see a similar phenomenon with your Smart Keyboard. I think Apple did a really nice job on this product, yes the price is quite steep, but if someone needs to type, this feels great. You are not slowed down the least bit by this keyboard.

    No wrinkles here.

    I agree, the price is a bitter pill to swallow but relatively speaking, it perhaps the best keyboard cover for any tablet.

    You had a Surface Pro, right? How does typing on the Smart Keyboard compare to typing on the Surface keyboard cover?

    We're going to need pictures. Mine doesn't have it I think.

    Return it. There shouldn't be wrinkles.

    Yeah mine doesn't have wrinkles either. You shouldn't buy a keyboard that looks like a 90 year old man's face. Return it and exchange it for one that is wrinkle free

    Thank you to you and all the other replies. I will go ahead and try to setup an exchange with Best Buy then. I'm glad I checked before committing to keeping it. That's what makes this forum great!

    No prob, Mr book. Hope you're enjoying your new iPad besides the little keyboard issue!
