Reviews & Questions

Messenger Folio Case with Non-Backlit Keyboard for the Apple iPad Air/Air 2/9.7-inch iPad Pro (English US) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keyboard case an excellent investment! This is my second Zagg keyboard case and I wouldnt own an IPad without one! It protects the IPad plus makes it much more useful. My first one is from 5 years ago and still works great and that IPad looks like new. You won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the sleekness! I bought this keyboard and cover combo last year for my iPad Pro 9”. Fits wonderfully and is really sleek. Fits in my full size handbag for easy travel by air or by car. I did not opt for a lighted keyboard but the key board is fluid and very comfortable. I would recommend to a friend and the warranty is 100% fast and efficient. The tab near the “on/off” button broke but i placed a call and it was quickly replaced. Register your product and keep the receipt filed if you don’t buy direct. Thank you ZAGG for a reliable product. I also own screen protector for my iPad too - no bubbles! Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice keyboard case If you have been looking for a cover for your iPad Pro 9.7, you know that the options are very limited. So I am glad that Zagg is offering several models. I picked this one because I need it to fold back and the other models didn't look like they would do that. Unfortunately, this one does not have a backlit keyboard and when you close the cover it does not put the iPad to sleep. Positive features: nice cover, professional looking, sturdy, paired easily and quickly, reasonable price point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke in less than 6 months I bought this to replace a case that did not originally fit my ipad. I treat all of my technology with respect because it is so expensive to replace. I bought this case in hopes of protecting my ipad and using it as a mini laptop. This was poorly manufactured because the plastic piece that holds my ipad in place, BROKE. It will not hold my ipad up any longer. So disappointed and I want to purchase another one but I am too afraid of spending more money for another poorly made product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Isn't worth the money....for what's available nowa I bought this about a week ago. It's petty expensive for what it is. No backlighting, and it doesn't stay connected when you close it. Everything works pretty good though. The keystrokes don't lag on the way to the screen, and the key travel is pretty good too, I can type on it and it feels good. The biggest thing is no trackpad...and that's not Zagg's fault, Apple really dropped the ball with not trackpad intergrated. My biggest gripe is that the bluetooth has to be reconnected every time I open it up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work after first week. This was replacement for previous unit that broke. Now the replacement does not work after using just 1 week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disapointed with product. I have purchased many thing from Zagg. Their customer support and warranties are fantastic. Having said that, I was very disapointed with the folio. It is clear that these are "left over" ipad air 2 cases repurposed. The magnets are horrible, it does not shut off and their is some type of gap left in between case and keyboard. Wasted expedited shipping becuase I was excited this was for a iPAD Pro, which it clearly not.
