    iPad and the Apple Wireless Keyboard - AWESOME

    • Written by from Cumming

    This keyboard is the perfect companion for the iPad. Pairing up is a snap and it makes typing on the iPad so much easier. The iPad itself has a pretty good screen touch keyboard. But when I am sitting at the kitchen table, I can prop up the iPad and the sit back with the Apple Wireless Keyboard in my lap or move the keyboard anywhere I like. I think this is a better configuration than the iPad dock with the attached keyboard.

    Typing on the keyboard is smooth too. Will I take the keyboard with me when I travel with the iPad, probably not , but the keyboard is very light and small enough to take with you if you wanted to.

    Bottom line, purchasing the Apple Wireless Keyboard will be a purchase you will not regret.

    Love at first sight !!

    • Written by from Hatboro

    A few weeks ago when I had purchased my new Mac mini, I included the wired keyboard with numeric keypad.

    Immediately after using it, I realized how much better this keyboard is than my old one, so I placed an order for this wireless keyboard for use with my iPhone.

    Now, I simply mount my iPhone on a portable tripod and with this keyboard, I have a mini-computer!

    Typing in Pages or Numbers on my iPhone with this keyboard is just incredible!

    The keys click the moment they are pressed with such a satisfying sound that is music to my ears that encourages me to type faster.

    Apple has done such a perfect job with the quality of the aluminum base, this keyboard makes the others (made out of cheap plastic) look cheap in comparison.

    In other words, there is no competition!

    If you want the best, you found it -- just click to purchase like I did.
    Satisfaction guaranteed!

    Not enthralled

    • Written by from Toronto

    I like not having the cord, but the action isn't great on this thing. The keyboard has this really cheap, hollow, plastic-like feel to it. It's more Fischer-Price than Apple. I've had the wireless for about a month. I'm trying to like it, but I just can't used to the feel of the new keyboard. If I had a chance for a do-over, I wouldn't have bought this thing.

    Great keyboard ... but I want more :-)

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Really great keyboard, but having a MacBook experience makes it "not so good" without the backlight.
    Also, as an active iPad user, I hope to see more support from iOS guys! For example, the ability to change active apps with COMMAND+TAB, etc.

    A must have for MacBook Pro users

    • Written by from GOLDEN

    When it comes to writing in a text editor, programming, graphic design, or even just basic control of your computer, The Apple Wireless Keyboard is a must have. Especially if you are a MacBook Pro user. This wireless keyboard would definitely make a great tool for using your laptop, especially when you want to sit back and use your computer from the couch as it sits on the coffee. Table. This is definitely a must have Apple product.

    Best Keyboard I Have EVER Used!!

    • Written by from Tompkinsville

    I bought this keyboard to use with my iPad and it works fantastic.It is also very light and sleek. I use it every day to type up my notes for class. I don't know how the batteries are because I have only had it about a week but I already love it.

    Bluetooth keyboard

    • Written by from Horsham

    Well made product for the 'average' user although I have had no problems yet I am sure that with heavy use it will be more likely to fail in certain crutial ways.
    Otherwise its a great product.

    Cons: I wish it would turn on and off quicker because like most people, I dont like to wait.

    Fantastic

    • Written by from Kirkland

    Got the actual thing after replacing a knock off that kept dropping the signal. I can tell you this keyboard is perfectly spaced, the keys feel very nice and smooth, and it's some of the easiest typing I've ever done. Within the first hour of using it, it has become my favorite keyboard.

    FABULOUS!!!!

    • Written by from MIAMI

    I LOVE this keyboard. I was hesitant because of some reviews, but went ahead & deciede to get it and give it a try. I use it with my iPad 2 & iPhone. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!! Yes, some of the functions on top row don't work, but was told at the apple store this may change with updates coming up later this fall. Either way, it does what I want. I type on my iPad virtual keyboard, but for documents/longer emails I prover to use a keyboard.
    One of my concerns is that it doesn't have a case and was wondering how I would protect it... well, they sell a case that fits PERFECTLY and is made for this keyboard. It's they Origami case by incase. That is definitely worth the purchase. It also serves as a dock for your ipad while you are typing,. I use it more for the protection of the case. It is made for the keyboard and snaps into place. Hope this review helps. :)

    Great product, but four little nits to pick

    • Written by from ARLINGTON

    The Apple wireless keyboard is a great product. Reliable. Useful. Compatible. Its software even tells you when the batteries are running low in plenty of time to replace them. I use my keyboard as part of a desktop setup with a MacBook and I've also used it with an iPad.

    What don't I like?
    1. No reminder on which way to insert the batteries.
    2. No number keypad.
    3. No "forward delete" key. You have to use FCN+DEL for forward delete.
    3. Can be just a bit dodgy on the initial pairing and the return pairing if the keyboard and its host machine have been separated.

    Amazing!

    • Written by from Sherwood Park

    This is a really excellent keyboard. I have it paired with my iPad (I'm using it to type this review) and it does the job quite well. The only issue I have is the fact that there are many useless buttons. I know this keyboard is for iMac, but they could at least make it so that the keys can be used. Also, it's really hard to tell whether it's on or off. Overall, well worth the price.

    Best Keyboard Ever

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I just finished cleaning up a full glass of water that spilled everywhere. This keyboard still works. I have spilled so much on it and I am ready to declare it waterproof. It is light, easy to type on, and looks great. The batteries last a while and it is convenient for travel if necessary. I love this keyboard and would never buy anything else now.

    Needs to have a numeric pad etc.

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I like the type-ability of this keyboard but it doesn't have a numeric pad like the USB-wired one does. This is really dumb. i use my keyboard for business and filmic needs and have to have a numeric keypad. I ended up going back to my old wireless one.

    Can't understand why there is no full sized wireless keyboard.

    good keyboard, bad build

    • Written by from Prospect

    i recently got a 27 inch iMac with the keyboard and trackpad, i thought they were both really great, i moved them a lot, because i was in the process of getting a new desk, i had it set up on a table in front of my bed, and when i moved the keyboard and pad from the table sometimes, i noticed chips in the aluminum body, in both the keyboard and the track pad. other than that, i thought they were pretty good.

    Apple keyboard and iPhone

    • Written by from Jeffersonville

    Works great and was easy to pair with the iPhone. It comes with batteries installed and ready to go. Took only about five minutes to go through the manual. Now, looking for a carrying case!

    I though this was an iPad accessory? Barely any support!

    • Written by from Ventura

    I purchased this keyboard based on the assumption it would perform multiple functions. Some fuctions touted by Apple include being able to control brightness, volume and to change tracks in iTunes. None of these features work with the original iPad. Apple generally has very good support and products, however this one comes up short. It has about three out of five stars on the Apple website. Currently the keyboard is only good for using the letter keys and typing only - no other fuctions work. I know that's the main reason you want one, but as you're working and you suddenly decide your music is a little loud, or you want to skip a track, having the ADVERTISED FEATURES work would be nice. Also, so many fuctions are overlooked, its really almost shoddy of Apple. There is no way to scoll on a webpage (despite having arrow keys) or now way to go back or forward through web pages (despite a multitude of buttons available for such functions). This keyboard may work fine with a full-fledged mac, but because it TOUTED AS AN IPAD ACCESSORY by Apple, you would think they would make it actually perform with an iPad, instead of it being useless for anything but typing. Think hard before your purchase this. It FEELS like you suddenly has a full-fledged laptop in front of you with a dedicated keyboard -- unfortunately the Apple Wireless Keyboard does next to nothing to control the ipad. Major disappointment Apple.

    Simply beautiful.

    • Written by from bloomington

    I use the wireless keyboard for my iPad 2 and i had no trouble syncing it with my device. It is small enough to store in my desk, and light enough to put in my bag without me even noticing it. It is so thin yet it doesn't worry you it you drop it. I think that this is the best keyboard I have ever owned, and I have even bought them as presents for friends. Apple did an outstanding job with this.
