    Pairing Issues

    • Written by from Baden

    While the keyboard itself is very nice, lightweight, sleek, and overall an excellent design, it does not connect to devices very well. If your keyboard drops the signal you are in for one heck of a nightmare to get it to reconnect to anything at all. I have read tons of forums to try and fix the problem but nothing seems to work. I have had it for not even a day and I have spent the last 3 hours trying to get it to reconnect to no avail. It is very frustrating, and overall very unhelpful when there is no direction in the instruction manual to resolve these issues

    Well rounded wireless keyboard

    • Written by from huntington

    This keyboard is quite near compatable with every Macintosh, Classics suchs as eMac g4 with usb bt chip, Any device that can take a Bluetooth keyboard,
    The only problem I have had with paring has been with Samsung devices, Rooted and custom rom did not resolve the problem..
    I recall a difficult time to pair with the Samsung 7 inch tablet. "shows for 2 seconds out of 245563 attempts"
    My current cellphone is an android lg-e973 and pairs like cake
    My only problem is the life of the board, Guess I should use lithium's or get a better rechargeables

    Oh wait the major fail on apples part is the genius is how to replace the cells
    0. find a coin bigger then a dime
    1. use coin to remove small cover
    2. change the 3 cells
    3. lose the small cover some where's in the r0om.

    Why do I love the PlayStation 3 controllers sell so well?
    Standard usb charger port and blutooth and able to charge+play with usb, and compatibility as wide as this keyboard.
    Why I compaired to ps3 controllers? Because its user friendly human interface and I want apple to use this in there next keyboard upgrade

    I would glady buy a new keyboard if it had a mega battery life, and was able to work via usb while charging,+ having and be able to pair to a set device by pressing a number key. if I could plug my phone in to the keyboard and have the phone charge
    that sysadmin guy would buy with my features.

    Not worth the materials its made from

    • Written by from Leduc

    This is the single worst keyboard i have ever owned, and i have own something out of the 80's with half the keys missing. It is an absolute nightmare to try and pair it with anything. Macbook says "Couldn't connect to device", iPhone doesn't even see it. got it to connect on my android tablet but it disconnected itself 5 seconds later. i really can't tell how it feels to type on it because it wouldn't pair with anything to save its life. I think I'm going to melt it down and make some sort of modern art piece.

    Unreliable

    • Written by from Cambridge Park

    This keyboard is very fragile and unreliable. Not suitable for heavy use. Expect an early keys malfunctions - mine started printing Y when SHIFT was pressed and produced intermittent spaces, then stopped pairing and died.

    Great

    • Written by from broadway

    Am currently using keyboard now. Have had no issues what so ever with it and managed to pair with my ipad in less than 1 minute. Keyboard has soft keys which are easy to touch compared to other keyboards. I would thoroughly recommend this product

    Light and compact, but lacking in functionality.

    • Written by from London

    Beyond the obvious benefits of wireless technology, this keyboard unfortunately sacrifices too much functionality to achieve its slight, compact form.

    Fine for casual use, although anyone with average to large hands may find even this to be a struggle.

    It excludes a number of keys, which in my case is a deal-breaker.

    Lacking are: home/end, page up/down, delete and F13 keys, as well as numeric keyboard (with associated keys and layout)

    It also has a single ctrl key (on the left) instead of the usual two.

    Inadequate for workflows associated with a lot of keyboard shortcuts, and not great for number crunchers either.

    Best keyboard for iPad

    • Written by from Belleville

    I've had scores of other keyboards. But the fact that this one is a full sized keyboard (unlike Logitech, whose design I like for case and keyboard but the keyboard is not very functional for someone who types a great deal) is a plus. The only real down side is that there's no case for the iPad and keyboard. I ended up purchasing the origami case for the keyboard (after carrying it around with me in the original box for YEARS) and a case for my newly upgraded iPad Air (upgraded from an iPad 2).

    I wish Apple would get with the program and design something for both or come up with a new keyboard/case for it's product.

    2 keyboards-batteries corroded inside, can't even open battery door on one

    • Written by from New Orleans

    There must be a design problem here - never had a device that corrodes batteries to this severity when not used. Will see if duracell pays to replace it, but it seems to be a design problem since it has happened to every apple blue tooth keyboard I have owned. So while it is a great functional design and pleasant to type on, having to remove your batteries after each use makes the design kind of flawed. One can find this issue in multiple threads of apple support forums.

    Beware of iPad lockouts with this keyboard

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This review is to warn iPad users that the keyboard may result in a major headache. I bought it two days ago and easily paired it with my iPad. So far so good. Then I decided to take it on the road, and little did I know... I put it in my bag, after switching it off, and went to the library. During transport, although the keyboard should have been off, pressure on the keys entered a wrong pass code on my iPad *multiple times*. So many, in fact, that by the time I got to the library my iPad was permanently disabled. I am frankly appalled that something like that could happen for no fault of my own. I hope that Apple will add a warning to the product description. The only safe way to transport it with an iPad in the same bag is to disable the Bluetooth function, since there is no guarantee that it won't turn on by itself. I have some important transcriptions of archival material that I did not back up in the past two days, and if this results in data loss when I restore my iPad this evening, it will mean I'll have wasted many precious hours of work. This is a very significant flaw, well known to the Apple store people I talked to today. Hopefully when Apple redesigns the keyboard or updates iOS they'll fix it. But for now, user beware!

    • Written by from Manchester

    apple wireless blutooth Keboard

    • Written by from Horsham

    The apple Keboard is good, but they could make the Keboard backlit lit, like the mac book pro, it feels really nice to use., it has good range, and can connect very quikly to your device.

    Waste of money for $75. Connection is not stable. Has no keypad

    • Written by from Beaconsfield

    No numeric key pad. No back-lit effects. Very unstable Bluetooth connection. Not worth the money. Use a wired keyboard for half the price.

    Just love this keyboard!

    • Written by from Glendora

    I use this with my MacBook Air when I have it at home and use it like a desktop. It's very light and the keyboard has a great touch. I type very fast and there's no lag whatsoever. It's also very portable. I can just throw it in my bag when I take my Mac out. I use it with the wireless mouse and together they make a terrific combination. Also excellent battery life. I've used it every day for between 6-7 hours a day for almost 2 months and it's still at 100%.

    Excellent and Comfortable Keyboard

    • Written by from Singapore

    For those who are looking for a great keyboard on which you intend to type a lot on, GET THIS. It can pair to your IOS devices, and pairs really easily. It feels comfortable, and it is tilted slightly, creating an easier environment to type with. Keys are not too chunky [like most other keyboards] and not too thin [like MB keyboards]. Battery lasts really long [My battery is at 100% from abt 1 mth ago].

    Soft aluminum

    • Written by from Miami

    Very soft aluminum magnesium alloy material that is used for the keyboard frame makes it very susceptible to damage if dropped and rendering it useless especially in the area of the power button. Cool and sleek design at the cost of durability and reliability. I owned my keyboard for less than 24 hours before I found out how quickly I can waste $70

    So far so good, but......

    • Written by from UNDERWOOD

    I bought it today and it is very comfortable for using on ipad. However there are not too much functions button support for iOS system such as back to home screen and so on.

    So I hope apple can improve the support more functions for ipad by using the apple wireless keyboard.

    Perfect for my needs

    • Written by from LONDON

    Really perfect keyboard for my needs - the responsibility of the keys is the best I ever experienced, ideal for even longer writing;
    the execution of the materials is just superb.
    Flawless connection with my iMac and as it is wireless easily movable wherever you need it to have it.
    Love it!
