    Latest MC184LL/B model function keys do not work with iOS 4.3.5

    • Written by from Blaxland

    Buyer beware - If they send you the latest version of the keyboard with the Lion specific function keys (MC184LL/B) none of the function keys will control brightness, media playback or volume on devices with iOS 4.3.5 (not sure about prior iOS versions). Specifically iPad 2 in my case but others have said iPad 1 as well. The remaining keys all seem to work fine though. Crossing fingers that an update to iOS will correct this.
    Everything works perfectly on a Mac running Lion so the issue is with the iOS device support.

    Perfect for me!

    • Written by from Portland

    I purchased this when I got my iPad a year ago, knowing I didn't want to have to dock the iPad on anything in order to type something on a keyboard. Best decision I could have made! The keyboard is amazingly small and light, yet large enough to type normally. I love being able to pick it up and start typing, no matter where the iPad is or what position it's in. Just wish it had some sort of lightly padded case so it could travel easily with me, but that's not a huge deal.

    Eats battery like crazy every 3 weeks

    • Written by from calgary

    Very stylish cool looking keyboard!! However the keyboard will eat a set of batteries every 3 weeks - very unenviromentally sound. I use this with a magic mouse and have short battery life issue with both. I run both macs and pcs have a number of wireless keyboards and mice. The apple wireless keyboard and mouse look great, but the short battery life is very big issue for me

    My other keyboard/mice will go 6-12 month without issues. I have pack of akaline batteries ready for my apple keyboard/mouse because I need to. I am amazed how big an energy hog these device are and why this product was ever produced. I had the keyboard replaced once at the apple store and also has the mouse replaced. I would not recommend this product and will likely go back to a wired setup.

    For more insight, google "short battery life mac keyboard" Many other users have had the same issue

    I love the wireless keyboard

    • Written by from Fresno

    I enjoy my wireless keyboard and have had no problem with it. I am curious though, this model number is new? I know they came out with new mice, but what is different from this keyboard and the previous?

    happy user of this on PC

    • Written by

    It's annoying to read all over that this keyboard "misses numeric keypad". Guess what: that's the reason I bought it in the first place. Regular writing in an armchair is very uncomfortable if it has numeric keypad. Still, you can clearly see before buying that this keyboard doesn't have numeric keys so what's the point whining about it?
    I did have connectivity issues but, somehow surprisingly, I resolved them by removing the bluetooth driver that came with my usb dongle and replacing it with default Windows XP driver. It works like a charm now, despite the fact that at the same time I use another bluetooth dongle for the network.
    The obvious disadvantage is the price. In Poland, where I bought it, it costs significantly more than 69 bucks (US is so cheap and yet you still whine about the price)
    To sum up, I'm not an Apple fanboy, I bought this for PC and I spend on it 10 times the price of my previous keyboard, but I would do this again cause Apple's competition is to shy to dump the numeric keypad and adopt minimalistic design.

    Number Pad

    • Written by from APO

    Apple needs to bring back the number pad on the wireless keyboard. Previous incarnations of the wireless keyboard featured a number pad and even the current wired one has it, why not the wireless? They just took a laptop keyboard and made it wireless when one of the biggest downsides of a laptop keyboard is the lack of a number pad.

    Don't get it wet!

    • Written by from Woodbury

    Got some water on the space bar and now the space bar does;nt work and there is no way to get into the keyboard to clean it.
    No way to fix it, unless Apple sends me some instructions; which I doubt.
    Otherwise it is a good piece of equipment.

    Can't use another keyboard after this...this becomes an addiction

    • Written by from GIG HARBOR

    Just trashed my original with a cup of coffee, tried to use an older keyboard but after an hour was hopeless...logged out of work and drove to nearest Apple Store, where I bought two: one to replace the original, a second to keep in a safe place. Doomsday preppers take heed!

    Keys stopped working

    • Written by from Washington

    One year and 2 weeks after purchasing this keyboard with a new 21" iMac several keys just stopped working, rendering it useless. I checked online and this seems to be a fairly common problem. I've been a Dell user for over a decade and last year switched to a Mac based on rave reviews from friends. So far I've been unimpressed. Six weeks after purchasing the iMac the hard drive failed. Now the keyboard has failed. I don't know what will fail next, but this is becoming the most expensive computer I've ever owned......and not because of the quality.

    Broke in one Year

    • Written by from Novi

    Nothing had been spilled on it ever, nothing unusual had ever happened to it. After a year, the left half of the keys stopped working so I couldn't log in to my user any longer. I am typing this from a friends computer. Other than this issue, It worked fine. But I'm thinking I may buy a usb keyboard to replace it instead of another copy.

    great little apple keyboard

    • Written by from Gahanna

    ultra-slim, very "macbook air-esque". I enjoy using it with my MBA closed and my 24" LED cinema display for a desktop feel. The keyboard has the "feel" of my MBA so transitioning back-and-forth is a breeze. A very nice accessory.

    NOT WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION

    • Written by from Decatur

    I have bought 3, YES THREE, of this product, and each time, one has failed me. The delete key breaks and stops working, the KB will go wacko and just unabatedly enter the same key without me touching a thing. And many others issues.

    I BOUGHT THREE OF THESE

    this must show it's a piece of junk. i like it's size and it's user-friendliness, and all the fancy aspects of it, but i have given up on it.

    Awesome for on the go

    • Written by from Summerville

    This is probably your best option for typing on your iPhone/iPod touch or iPad on the go. I use this keyboard every day along with my iPhone (using Evernote) to take notes in class. If you're looking for a desktop replacement however, I would look elsewhere. The function keys are great but it's a bit cramped for my liking. Still, this thing works perfectly and I highly recommend it for every iOS road warrior.

    Some keys seem to stick.

    • Written by from Ottawa

    This keyboard came packaged with my new IMac. Shortly after receiving it I noticed that a couple of the keys would sometimes not work when pressed. I took it back to the Apple Store but of course when they checked it with another computer it worked. Since then I periodically get this problem. Most of the time it works but sometimes it doesn't. Very frustrating. It doesn't seem to relate to the battery strength or proximity to the computer.

    Great but ...

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    The keyboard is nice and works well. It makes typing on the iPad much easier. However, I worry about traveling with it. I kept the box to protect it while carrying in my briefcase or carry-on. But it would be nice to have some way to protect and attach to my iPad for transport. Of course, I probably should have bought a case with a built-in keyboard.

    Best keyboard ever!!!!!

    • Written by from stirling

    This is the best keyboard I have ever typed on, in fact I'm typing on it right now. I love its smooth clicking keys, slim blueotth design, and the fact that i can stop/play, mute, fast forward and change the volume of my music. I can change the brightness of the screen and even bring up the on screen keyboard for my emojicons. There are no cons with this apple device, love it!

    keyboard

    • Written by from Oakland

    The button that holds the batteries for the keyboard in place easily works it's way loose and there does not seem to be a replacement part, instead it looks as if I have to buy an entirely new keyboard.

    Plus, does not come with a travel case for protection
