Reviews & Questions

Slim Book Case with Backlit Keyboard for the Apple 9.7-inch iPad Pro (English US) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 251.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded Design / Light Weight and Protective I previously had a similar Zagg keyboard folio but the hinge design had issues and would eventually break. This new design seems to have corrected the hinge issues and has made using the new folio a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Clam Case When my ClamCase died - I knew it was time for a replacement. It would not connect with Bluetooth and needed constant re-charging. Ordered another ClamCase. Had a similar problem with the Bluetooth pairing. When I called for support, I was told it was a problem with my iPad. Returned it and starting doing some research. After reviewing over a dozen different cases, I determined that the Slim Book Case was exactly what I needed. Ordered directly ZAAG. Case delivery and easy setup. Would buy another one if I had another iPad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service, unfortunately, this is the second replacement due to plastic fatigue on the hinge which causes the unit to malfunction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second zagg dock I like the zagg dock series. This is the second that I have had in 19 years, and I have found this new one to be just as user friendly as the first. I have used the first very hard in 23 foreign countries as a foreign correspondent, with no problems at all. The new one, coupled with a new apple product, appears to be working just as satisfactorily. Keep it coming, you make a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lighted keyboard is great This is my third backlit keyboard from Zagg. I love these things. Granted, they last for two to three years, but I hate using the IPads keyboard. It’s also a case that holds your pad upright when your using it, then just flip it closed. As I am off grid, the backlit keys unable me to use the pad without having extra lights on in my cabin. Zagg is a decent company with good customer service too, highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Great Customer Service I’ve been working with this iPad Pro 9.7 Bluetooth keyboard case for 5 months and the product was working perfectly. I was using it 4-8 hours every day including weekends. It developed a problem with keys not working reliably. I contacted customer service via their chat feature on their website and they walked me through the warrantee replacement process, quick and easy. That was two days ago and my replacement is being delivered tomorrow. The test of a company’s customer service is when something goes wrong and they come through as professional, helpful, and fast. ZAGG measures up, I will be buying more ZAGG products in the future. Thank You ZAGG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Early Performance Review After researching a number of IPad cases with keyboard, I bought the Slim Book case for my 9.7 IPad Pro about two months ago. I had read a number of reviews both good and bad on this product. My early assessment of it is the quality is very good, keyboard works great and overall I am pleased with it at this point especially after some reservation due to several negative review which have not proved to be so.
Date published: 2018-10-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Pleasant Surprise Have been very pleased with this product. Didn’t realize how much I missed a REAL keyboard for the iPad until starting using this device. Very versatile and doesn’t add much weight or bulk to the iPad, over all. Still working on familiarizing myself with all the features of this device but gerenally pretty straightforward to use right out of the box. s far as I’m concerned, it good investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from having owned more than one slimbook cover on both IPad Mini & IPad Pro this is definitely the go to accessory for the Apple product. Works as if Apple designed it expressly for their product. Keyboard is quality and withstands hours and hours of typing. If anyone is looking to take their IPad to the next level of productivity the Zagg Slim Book is a must! Thanks for engineering a great product!

Date published: 2018-09-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged and Performs as Advertised I have had the slim keyboard for about a month. So much more robust that the Apple version. You can actually type on the keyboard as the action of the keys is similar to a full size keyboard. A number of reviews I read prior to my purchased made negative comments about the durability. I don't normally abuse my electronic equipment, but I see no reason why someone would have problems with its durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Can’t Live Without!!! I bought this about 90 days ago... had a little issue with the case part of this “tearing” where the tabs from the keyboard line up.. but contacted ZAGG.... and they completely replaced it for me.. and I can not live without this keyboard!! It’s so nice to finally have with all of the programs to make typing a lot faster than just the iPad keys.. Love Love Love this!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Customer associate's service was outstanding! I bought my ZAGG keyboard from Amazon. Even though I didn't register my keyboard, I still had a replacement shipped to me. As much as I love the Folio keyboard, the product (especially the hinge) breaks so easily. It should not break in 5 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant simplicity I had an iPad 2 until recently (yes, Dorothy, if you take care of things they will last almost indefinitely!) but it died and I moved up to the iPad Pro 9.7 inch model. With my old iPad 2 I had become quite used to my Zagg keyboard cover giving me the near-laptop functionality AND protecting the auld tablet. I like the idea of keeping my electronics properly protected (see comment to Dorothy above), so I began my search for the PERFECT case/keyboard combination for my new tablet. The Apple cover was nice and uses the integral connection, but doesn’t cover the back of the iPad; numberless other case/keyboards that covered the back of the iPad were available for unbelievably low prices and promised everything, but “too-good-to-be-true” is generally correct (and the reviews corroborated that perspective). Enter the Slim Book Case with Backlit Keyboard. The actual iPad case fullly protects the back of the iPad proper without restricting access to all the ports / switches, camera, etc., and cleverly channels all the sound output right towards the user without exposing the speaker openings. The keyboard offers a near-laptop typing experience (don’t caress the keys - tap them!), and when folded together, the iPad/case and keyboard look more like the afore-mentioned laptop than anything else. The fit and finish are top quality (as expected given the brand and the price) and the entire combination places a pleasant but not onerous heft in your hand. When desired, the iPad/case portion of the ensemble can be removed from the keyboard portion to use in a stand-alone mode. I’m still discovering some of the capabilities of the keyboard, but I’ve already found that it augments the iPad’s many functionalities. The attention that Zagg paid to the design cues on the iPad is obvious - this whole ensemble looks like a single, unified unit. Honestly, what’s not to like? Yes, it costs more than some of the other case/keyboard combinations, but you get what you pay for, and I would rather pay a few extra dolllars and get quality. Get it; you’ll be delighted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Customer service was fantastic! I bought this about a year ago. I noticed it had broken about 6 months ago. I happened to be talking to someone and they said that zagg would replace it for free. I thought no way, but when I called they were very helpful and really amazed me!! Great product, great company, great customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Customer Service! I bought the excellent Zagg Slim Book for my iPad Pro over one year ago and the plastic hinge broke on one side. I contacted customer service and they sent an improved case with a metal-reinforced hinge immediately. I love this case for it’s versatility and ease of use. Top notch product with great customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim Book - best iPad keyboard EVER The Slim Book for iPad Pro is a great product if you're looking for a full-featured keyboard. Easy to install and set up, and after that it's seamless. Keys have a great feel. It's a little heavy, but that's okay, because it's so easy to detach the iPad from the keyboard and use it separately. This thing is a home run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found best keyboard with case for my iPad Pro 9.7 I bought this slim book for my iPad Pro and I am very happy with it. It is so convenient while working it and when watch movies or using it as a table it is so easy to move it from the keyboard. Well done ZAGG

How much the does the slim book for iPad Pro 9.7 weigh?

Asked by: AndyH
I just received my slim book and weighed it on my postal scale.  It came in at 1 lb. 3.2 oz. (19.2 ounces).  With the iPad in it, it would be about 2 lbs. 2 oz.  It is a very sleek case and doesn't feel too heavy.  It has to have enough weight to counterbalance the weight of the iPad itself.
