    Not Fully Compatable With Yosemite

    • Written by from ST. ANDREWS

    Worked great with Mavericks but there are many problems with Yosemite, I would not recommend this unless Apple can sort the issues.

    @ button in the wrong place

    • Written by from Chelmsford

    its all very well having this nice design and finish, but @ is in the wrong place and there is no delete button, which grinds my gears. After a few months of having it, I just want the extended version but its too long (and I havent looked into where @ is). Cant they just condense this one down so it includes all the extra buttons and fits in my clique dock. Having they keys half the size wouldn't bother me int the slightest.

    I like it, but......

    • Written by from Washington

    I would love to give this 5 stars because it looks great and it paired up with my ipad air, iphone 4s and apple TV no problem. The only thing that lets it down for me is that sometimes it will repeat the 1st character you press on the keyboard, usually when it's 1st switched on or when going to a different web site. It's a bit frustrating to have to be mindful of this as well as typing. Other than that, any shortcuts I have saved to my ipad work with the keyboard which I like as I'm not the fastest at typing. Hope this review helps

    All round, A great "little" keyboard!

    • Written by from Gloucester

    Again, a great piece of technology... Stylish, Fast, and I use the word "little"... Firstly, it looks great. Its aluminium housing fits in with all apple computers and notebooks, but still looks good with any computer. It has precision cut edges giving it a reel feel of quality. The keys are a perfect size, feel soft to the touch but strong enough for heavy use. The letter/numbers etc are sort of clear to see, I say sort of because they are quiet difficult to see when in a low light environment which brings me to my only negative point which I will explain below. They are also in a perfect layout, not too close together while not to far apart, leaving ugly empty spaces, which you find on many keyboard today, so it doesn't make you hands/wrists ache after a long time typing as all the keys are at an easy reach! White is where the word little come in, As the keys are placed and arrange they way they are, apple have been able to keep the keyboard small, making it fit onto almost any environment and again keep it looking stylish. As for fast, it connects almost instantly and I have yet to see it buffering/lagging when typing. Battery life I have yet to discover as I have only had the keyboard for 2 weeks. But many other reviews say it last a good amount of time before batteries need replacing. I now come onto my only negative point, which I would say is quite a big one... Backlight... This keyboard would really benefit from a backlight, as seen on the MacBooks... Yes, it would greatly shorten the battery life, but apple could give the keyboard some form of a rechargeable battery that you can recharge by usb for example... But, this aside, its a great "little" keyboard!

    Pros:
    Style
    Size
    Feel
    Layout
    Connectivity

    Cons:
    No Backlight

    Wireless Keyboard design flaw

    • Written by from SURBITON

    I've had my wireless keyboard now for about 2 years. In essence it is fine but a design fault appears to be if and when the AA batteries inside corrode - they get stuck and seems impossible to them get out. It's a shame to have to keep replacing peripherals because of design flaws. I shall go back to an Apple wired keyboard when I visit the store tomorrow to replace it.

    Replacement for badly designed previous model

    • Written by from London

    If anyone's looking at getting this keyboard because they're previous (3 battery) one has died - try inserting a little roll of tinfoil in before the batteries. This is a common fix for supposedly 'dead' bluetooth keyboards (badly designed by Apple).

    Unfortunately mine has complete died while changing the batteries, which isn't great. £60 down the toilet, for something I looked after well. How can changing a set of batteries kill a piece of 'high-end' electronics? Oh, that's right, it's cheap rubbish that looks nice...

    Very disappointing

    STYLE AND PRACTICALTY

    • Written by from LEICESTER

    I haven't had this very long but am already in love with it. I use it it with my iPad and prefer it to the pop up keyboard. I'm still getting to know the keys and although it doesn't have the full functionality as when used with an Apple Mac it is still well worth the money.

    There was no problem pairing it with my iPad at all so I was up and running almost as soon as it was out of the box! I have never had any problems connecting with it since pairing, as long as I remember to switch it on! The battery life is very impressive and as it turns itself off if means your not wasting them either.

    It is light and comfortable to hold , much lighter than the iPad itself. And not only that it is a good looking piece of equipment to boot.

    I would recommend this product without qualms.

    Great product!

    • Written by

    This keyboard came with my iMac in a nice package and the design of the keyboard was great. It was sleek and very impressive. It is very comfortable to type with, but since I am used to Windows PC keyboards, it took a few days to master as the size was smaller and slightly more cramped, but this you can overcome quickly. I am fairly quick typer and I could type on here with no errors even though the size is smaller than other keyboards. Setup was easy with a new Mac because it was connected to the computer at startup, and it probably is as easy to pair if you bought a replacement. The shortcut keys at the top of the keyboard are fast and easy to adjust basic settings such as brightness and volume and access mission control, launchpad etc. In fact they are quicker and easier than access via the multi touch gestures of the mouse (not sure about trackpad though.)

    Overall, I would highly recommend this keyboard for any Mac desktop user as it gets the job done perfectly, as well as incorporating added functionality and a sleek and attractive design.

    Making a move to OSX keyboarding

    • Written by from Dudley

    Making the move from Windows to OSX was something i never expected to be completely painless. However since the advent of windows 8 the choice was made for me, and so came the need to relearn how to use a Mac Keyboard. FACT like keys do different things. However after a short while of re-teaching yourself all becomes second nature. This was all made easier with the help of this apple cut down keyboard. none of the pesky shortcut keys windows forces you to use. so to the device, firstly it looks great, the same high equality finish so many try to emulate. The battery life is great and setup could not be more simple. the keys are response and well spaced.

    One word of warning this is a reduced key set keyboard like a macbook. If like a number of those giving this peripheral a low score you are to complain about the lack of page up/down keys or the delete key. Get the full size apple keyboard with numeric pad.

    This is what it advertises to be nothing more. it is however very good at doing this.

    Nice keyboard

    • Written by from Ystradgynlais

    Bought one for use with my Mac Mini after I spilled tea over my cheaper genreric bluetooth keyboard. Unlike that one the apple keyboard doesn't disconnect after being idle for 5 minutes. The sleek design looks good and the keys are good to the touch. Being a touch typist, my one gripe is the in the layout of the @ and " keys which are the "wrong" way around. Although this can be corrected by selecting Brtish PC as the input source, I am trying to see if I can get on with the layout as is. Another gripe, which applies to all UK keyboards, do we really need the $ key? This should be replaced, IMO, by the € key. A suggestion that Apple might consider on future keyboards.

    That said, it was still a good purchase.

    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.

    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.

    Lovely piece of kit

    • Written by from CARDIFF

    Superb keyboard, follows apple design and quality. To anyone complaining its too small, its the same size as all apple laptops, so when you switch from one to the other, your fingers always know where to go. How annoying would it be if every keyboard was spaced differently?
    Someone also mentioned no delete key!!? I type from left to right so theres nothing to ever need to delete on the right side of the cursor, simple but true.
    It sticks to my desk well, cleans easily and is everything i expect a mac keyboard to be.
    The photoshop keyboard shortcut covers also transfer from my macbook to this keyboard!
