    Not worth it

    • Written by from SANDHURST

    I'm very disappointed with this device. I got this along with a brand new iMac and it really lets the side down. Basically Apple have put design above functionality and for daily users this is a real bind. I waited over a month after getting this to see if I'd get used to it, but sadly no, its PANTS. I'm sad to say there are better keyboards than this.

    Negatives :

    Way too small. I find I make loads of typos using the small keys and find I have to go back and re type. Its knocked my productivity on the head and I've now replaced with a third party keyboard.

    No delete key !! Come on Apple 'What on Earth are you doing here ? '. This is unacceptable to expect users to press two keys to do the same as we did before with one key. I hope you listen to this for the next keyboard.

    Not up to the same standard as the rest of my Apple products.

    Positives :

    Its wireless and the wireless works well.

    Nice design.

    An expensive toy - no good for typists.

    • Written by from Bourne

    Zero stars for this keyboard. It's fun as a toy – 'look, no wires Oooh! - but does not stay connected, even when used within 30cms of the computer, and when all likely causes of interference are removed. And when it re-connects, the gadget runs amok and will often write a string of repeated letters, or worse, run backwards and delete chunks of text.

    For professional users and for rapid touch typists, it's hopelessly slow and frustrating to use. I would not recommend it to anyone and particularly not to anyone who uses a keyboard for more than a couple of minutes at a time.

    Apple should produce a wireless keyboard which is full sized, ergonomically comfortable and which works reliably. This current product is not one I'd recommend to anyone.

    The wireless mouse, though slow, is a little better.

    If I could give it less than 1 star I would.

    • Written by from STOURBRIDGE

    A truly useless keyboard. Keys get stuck on such a regular basis I spend more time deleting than typing. But then delete gets stuck and erases everything anyway. The old bluetooth keyboard was far superior, lasted years instead of months like this one and who decided to do a away with the number pad? I use a logitech mouse which is awesome I'll be getting a logitech keyboard soon enough, this thing is a joke. Apple, just because it's pretty doesn't mean it isn't rubbish.

    Pretty to look at but key features are missing

    • Written by from Watford

    While the keyboard might be more compact there are serious deficits.

    The keyboard is good to look at, light and very nice to type on but this does not make up for the fact that keys are missing that are required for those of us that actually need to do work on their iMac.

    I do a lot of Word Processing and Spreadsheet work so the loss of page up, page down, end, home, the numeric keypad and delete (seriously who looks at a keyboard and think that not putting that key on a keyboard is a good idea) is too much.

    The poor functional design of the keyboard outweighs, for me at least, the atheistic design.

    I am now in the market for a new keyboard. I would prefer one with a numeric keypad, certainly has to have delete, this is pushing me either toward the Logitech K750 (for Mac) or the Apple wired keyboard.

    I know which one is currently winning and it isn't the one with the wire.

    Back to the bomb-proof keyboard!

    • Written by from CALNE

    I have had this keyboard for a little over 6 months now and I am less than impressed to say the least.

    The caps button has broken and so the light shines even if I have caps turned off. This in turn drains the battery quick and I have had to resort to turning the keyboard off when I shut down.

    I am constantly loosing connection even with fresh Duracell batteries and my mac being less than 2 feet away. My 'm' and 'u' buttons have packed up so when I try to hold shift for a captial 'U' I get 'IORTUY' instead of the desired character. Frankly I'm appalled by the quality of this product and have had ro revert back to my solid old mac keyboard.

    I am not a heavy typist and have always taken very good care of my apple products due to how expensive they are, but they have taken the mickey a bit with this one! I shall not be buying another new gen apple keyboard in the near future.

    Poor quality impossible to work on!

    • Written by from London

    I had this for about 18 months now and it's already almost unusable. It keeps losing the connection to my iMac every 20-30 seconds so I have to reset. I exchanged batteries and done everything. Very disappointed since I love Apple for making everything so easy to use and good quality. This fails both of those criteria.

    Caps lock broken..

    • Written by from London

    Caps lock - fairly random as to whether it would work (found only using the far right of the button had a better success rate). Now the light is just showing as on - irrespective of whether it is. Seems this is a common fault on both the wired and wireless keyboards form reading the reviews.

    The lack of basic buttons (Delete, page up/down, home, end) is very frustrating and now i am trying to use my Mac more for word processing etc makes this product pretty awful.

    Connectivity also seems to be an issue; as it regular becomes unconnected for 20 / 30 seconds.

    Keep a USB keyboard handy

    • Written by from Dubin 14

    Great keyboard until you are reduced to sacrificing chickens to get it to pair with a Mac Pro. It's happened several times over the last year. Normally I can re-pair thru Bluetooth preferences but the last time around the keyboard refused to enter discovery mode. The only fix was to physically walk it away from the house until the led started to blink again then turn around and go back home! After that it paired successfully though that's not a word I'd bandy about for this product.

    Luckily I had an old USB keyboard lying around or there would have been no way to log in.

    Apple Wireless Keyboard - Disappointing

    • Written by from Elsfield

    I have this keyboard approximately 4 weeks and use it with my macbook pro 13.5. I lose connectivity every few minutes and when doing so, it's as if the keyboard sticks and types anywhere between 25 and 50 of the one letter across the screen like thhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (it actually just did that of it's own accord at the exact poinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnt I was going to type it in. I will be sending my keyboard back. It is a complete waste of money. The above is an example of whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhat it is like trying to use my keyboard.

    Waster of money

    Never works properly always having to pair keyboard with Macbook and never works with bootcamp. This will soon go the way of the Apple Mouse with an axe through it.

    Do not buy

    • Written by from Ballasalla

    I have got one with the iMac that I bought few years ago. I was not happy at all. Very energy hungry, if you are doing something more than just searching the web, it will be really annoying to replace batteries every few weeks. Why on earth they are pushing this piece of junk with an iMac which, I guess, is probably being bought mainly by the guys who actually want to do something more than just consume media (those guys will perfectly do with a tablet only). Anyway, to make long story short, I bought a 'no name usb keyboard' for about 20 pounds, it is not perfect, but at least it works without batteries.

    No delete key

    • Written by from Cobh

    Terrible keyboard - rubbery keys like on the original Sinclair ZX of the early 1980s. Too small and lacks a DELETE key. Can you imagine! Very disappointed. The lack of a DELETE key forced me to look for an alternative keyboard as I made too many typos with it.

    Delete home end

    • Written by from brønshøj

    WHAT no delete key. Bravo probably the most used key on a normal keyboard
    No page up, page down, home, end keys.
    I just do not relax when using the keyboard, just to small.
    Design before functionality. Its a no go keyboard!

    Another overpriced shiny pretty thing that's awful to actually use

    • Written by from Teddington

    A keyboard that:
    1) for no good reason has special characters in different places from any standard UK keyboard you're likely to use;
    2) doesn't have a dedicated key for #;
    3) doesn't have a delete button - only a backspace/delete
    These are not quirky, amusing little Apple idiosyncrasies but just plain old poor design
    Oh and I've yet to find an application where the volume controls on the keyboard actually alter the sound level
