Folio Case with Backlit Keyboard for the Apple 9.7-inch iPad Pro (English US) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 124.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Pleased with keyboard. Easy to install, perfect cover for ipad. Zagg sent me a replacement cable at no cost when I reported I'd misplaced mine. Excellent customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally a must have!!! I had bought this item a couple months ago and it has been the most convenient case/keyboard you will have for your iPad. It has taken multiple accidental drops and my iPad is still in perfect shape. The keyboard alone has great Bluetooth capability. I have the 9.7 iPad Pro and people will mistake it for a mini laptop. Myself I love the size because it's not bulky and very slim. Also it is light in weight to carry around in a bag or purse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the backlight! So happy I got this product. Having the backlight is by far the best feature and so worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect case! This is my second Folio... 1st one failed (broken hinge after about 6-7 months) & I'm hoping this lasts longer. Love the features of this case--backlit keys (if needed), nice-sized keyboard, a sturdy case. Great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product! I've had my Zagg for almost a year and it is the boss. The case is very sturdy. The keyboard and features far outclasses the iPad's keyboard, that's for sure! I have actually written long short stories with no problem. I recommend it as well as the glass cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this keyboard The battery lasts for months and months and the keyboard is user friendly. The only thing I don't love is the hinge. I've had one break, but Zagg did replace my keyboard for free since I hadn't had it 1 year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ease of the keyboard is my greatest love. This is my second one and I went right back to it and didn't even bother looking at alternatives. The keyboard has good sized keys and the keyboard organization fits with what I am used to. (I have an iPad Pro)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Zagg Keybaord and the Customer Service! I have been using the Zagg keyboard everyday as an outside sales representative since Feb 2017. I will never use a IPad any other way. I love the ease of use. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best quality cover This is the second folio I've bought for my iPads. I love this product and always recommend it to my friends. I've dropped my iPad several times but there is never any damage done to the iPad or the case. Great great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Case for IPAD Pro 9.7 This has made me use my IPAD Pro 9.7 so much more than I have used any IPAD in the past and I have owned every generation of IPAD. I have had other keyboards and cases on my IPADès and I have only liked one other one, the logictech cover, but found it hard to read with the ipad because the case was so bulky. This case is so thin, it makes it easy to read with. It is great to type on, has only been charged once & I have been using it for months! My favorite thing about the case is the toughness of it. I feel it will protect my ipad pro 9.7 for the lifetime of the ipad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this so much I am actually writing a review I recently bought an iPad Pro to use as 'my computer'... for, I have been using my iPhone for everything for years... this keyboard is amazing!!! It completely blew my expectations out of the water. I am beyond satisified. I love the backlit keyboard (and, it changes colors and brightness~ what!?!?!). My iPad fits perfectly into the case, I can carry it around with the case open without having to worry about my iPad falling out. This set up is perfect for either being on the go or being in the comfort of your own home. I definitely recomend this product to anyone looking to buy a keyboard for their iPad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Thought about the smart keyboard but so happy I decided on the Zagg Folio. The keys are a perfect size and I love the fact that the case protects the IPad as well. It also never loses it connection with the IPad. I use mine alot at night so the backlit keyboard comes in handy as well. It was the perfect choice for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First-rate keyboard case for iPad Pro 9.7 Size of keys, responsive touch, and backlighting (in a variety of colors) makes this a perfect companion to the Pro 9.7 and its terrific screen. The case itself is durable without being bulky or heavy. You can take your iPad in this case and do serious work anywhere. Best case I have found to date. 5 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like it Works as expected, love the different back light key colors Keys are spaced far enough appart to make accurate easy Speakers being covered is not a problem for me
Date published: 2016-05-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have gone through 4 different keyboard cases for my iPad pro. None were any good. 3 stars at best. The new Zagg is the best keyboard case available. Backlit keys, great protection for the iPad pro, easy to handle and cary, multiple viewing angles (same as a laptop). This is well worth the money and is the best keyboard case solution available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The folio works great with my ipad. It provides great protection and makes working on my ipad so much easier.
Date published: 2019-01-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I now have my second keyboard. I purchased the first one nearly a year ago, and after a few months, the hinge started to become damaged and it eventually nearly broke in two. I am gentle with my possessions and question of there is a defect in the way it is designed. I will be equally as careful with my second one and hope it endures better. Other than that, I very much like my keyboard.
Date published: 2018-01-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Keyboard and system but bad hinge system. In the past using this keyboard case system I loved but over time the hinge would bust and I would have to contact ZAGG for replacement. They have been very good in replacing product for me. I just heard that the IPad is heavier than the keyboard side and it put a lot of stress on the hinge. Supposively the case was reengineered and is better hopefully the new case they are sending me is different.
Date published: 2017-12-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it, However I really love my Folio for my iPAD Pro 9.7. It really give me the feel of a laptop. However, the hinge is the weak point, you need to be careful when opening the folio, do it slowly.

What is difference between 9.7 iPad pro keyboard covers...folio and slim book?!

Asked by: Calico
The Slim book has a detachable plastic case, and the keyboard is made out of metal, and It weighs ALOT more, about 200% more than the folio, it also has backlit keys The Folio is backlit and entirely made out of plastic, but is MUCH lighter, but it CANNOT be detached, it turns your Ipad into a touchscreen laptop basically. Personally, I travel alot, and can afford two Ipad cases, so I suggest buying the Folio, as the weight difference is huge, and the keys feel just as good Hope this helps! -Chandler

Your Folio features a powerful lithium polymer battery that lasts for up to two years of normal use between charges*. *Normal use is approximately one hour of use per day without the backlit feature. Using the backlit feature will impact battery life and will require more frequent charging.

Will this cas/keyed work with an iPad 1?

Asked by: Lsagaert
Heya Lsagaert! This Keyboard case will not work with an Ipad 1, as it's far too thick, it only supports the Ipad pro 9.7 and the Ipad air 2. It also will maybe fit an Air 1, but I wouldn't suggest it. Hope this helps! -Chandler

My Folio for the iPad Pro 9.7 is missing the 4 cutouts on the sides to expose the speakers.  It's also missing the wall adapter for the USB cable.

Asked by: Judy B
This is by design. In order to create the speaker openings without sacrificing quality, we made it so that there are small sound channels built into the plastic that channel the sound to the front of your iPad. The sound is no different than if there were speaker holes. If you look, there are small cutouts in the plastic where the speakers are located. Please contact customer service with any additional questions. Thanks!
