Reviews & Questions

Slim Book for the Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I bought another brand cover for my iPad but was very unhappy with it. The slim book is so versatile it allows me to use the iPad on my lap with out keyboard, or on my lap with the keyboard. It is extremely heavy duty to protect from falls. Overall absolutely great addition to my iPad. By the way it fits the latest generation iPad Air perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect protection and accessory! This is my second Zagg ipad protection product and I love this one even more! Lighter, slim and sleek... and awesome features (some I didn't think I'd use, but found out how wonderful they are!). Love the textured outside (would love to see this in other colours, but the charcoal grey is elegant!); the backlit keyboard is awesome; and the key-based features are terrific. My only regret -- waited a week while debating another brand. Should have known... buy the Zagg!! Glad I did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The clear winner on features & benefits! Over the span of many many years, since the introduction of the first iPad, I’ve had a Rugged case and am very pleased to remain a long term Zagg customer for numerous products and their awesome customer support. With the Rugged Slim Book case, the most appreciated features follow; a relief space for all 4 speakers, a strong magnetic grove / hinge, no need for a “kick stand” to support the screen, and the ability to activate 2 separate Bluetooth devices by depressing either button #1 or #2. For me this case is as close to perfection as I’ve been able to find and I’m a very proud owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Much More Than An iPad Now! This case has given me a really nice looking protector for my 10.5" iPad. It is so sturdy and yet lightweight! I wish it came in purple but it is so nice I won't complain. The fact that the Apple Pen/Pencil is easily stored in the case is awesome. I have lost two Apple Pens because I don't use them all the time, but the fact that the pen has its own locking/holding slide on the top of the case is wonderful. I highly recommend this case. It actually makes my iPad more like a laptop now. Thanks, Zagg, for meeting all my protection for my electronic gadgets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and great service I love Zagg’s cases. I buy one every time I purchase a new iPad.
Date published: 2019-04-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my second one! I received my first one about a year and a half ago, and loved it to death. I will say that there was a short lag of the keyboard right after it woke up that caused it to miss the first couple of letters typed, which was irritating. This new one still has a lag, but it remembers the intitial letters and shows them after a second of lag. I had to order the new one because I dropped the old one on a hard floor, right on the back spine. It caused the case to separate and not work correctly—by that was my fault. I love the Slim Book and all it’s features. Makes your iPad as good as a laptop computer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection and keyboard This is the second slim book cover for an iPad that I have purchased and this one is also very well made and the keyboard is excellent as expected. I basically use the iPad as a laptop replacement and find typing much easier than the virtual keyboard. My only complaint is that this version is a bit heavy compared to the previous one (though that is partially due to the iPad being larger to begin with). I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in protecting their iPad, especially if they like to type.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome It fits well. It looks good. It has a little weight to it proving It is a quility item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protection and versatility all in one package. This Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro offers plenty of protection to my iPad and excellent positioning when in use. The functionality is like having a laptop in my pocket! Well made and smooth around the corners so as not to damage other stored items in my briefcase. I am a very satisfied customer with the construction, quality, and price of this Slim Book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keyboard I purchased this for my husband for Christmas and he loves it. However, it would be perfect if it had a kickstand on the top portion to hold your tablet upright while you are working on another surface similar to the rugged pro for the 9.7

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Protection! I bought this month ago for my new Apple iPad Pro 10.5". I utilize my iPad for personal use, in the classroom as a teacher, and as a fire chief in business settings and on active incident scenes. The Slim Book provides excellent protection for my iPad and with the detachable keyboard, it becomes quite versatile depending on the setting I am using it in. I have read of other customers who complained about the hinge of the keyboard cracking, but I have found no issues with this as long as I am careful and pay attention when I am taking it on an off. My only complaint is the weight of the case when the keyboard is attached and folded behind the iPad. It makes the tablet heavy and clunky. However, it can be removed and most times in the classroom when I am teaching or allowing students to complete examples I have it removed and the weight is perfect. Otherwise, this is a great product that works well with the Latch II by Otter Box both in the classroom and in the field of firefighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn’t be better! Must be I’ve used Zagg keyboards for 5 years or more. There are significant upgrades to this one including how versatile and easy to use it is while protecting the iPad. The keyboard is so quick and responsive that it makes typing a breeze. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would not go without it! As a continual user (and believer) of Zagg products, I just love their keyboards and screen protectors. As devices are so expensive, I won’t carry them outside the house until they are protected with both. The keyboards are perfect for on-the-go functionality, the battery lasts a long time, and they are very durable.
Date published: 2018-08-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I have had this product for about a month now and I really like it. Does a great job of protecting my iPad and gives me the versatility of an easy to use keyboard when I need it, as well as other controls above the keyboard. It’s easily removable from the keyboard when I need it to be, and I’ve yet to have any problems with it. I don’t understand the many reviews which say that the hinge is poorly made and cracks easily. It definitely is made of plastic but it’s a very firm and hardy plastic which works like it’s supposed to as long as you put it in and take it out per the instructions. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it This is my 3rd Zagg and my 2nd iPad. Each one is better than the last one. I have dropped my iPad several times with no damage. Keyboard works great, everyone connects on my little laptop and wants to know where to get one.

I read somewhere that Zagg keyboard cases don't work with ios 11?? Is this true. I was looking at the Messenger or the Slim Book.

Asked by: Gershep2
Well I am on iOS 11 and typing this response with my Zagg Slim Book for iPad Pro 10.5 so I would say that they do work with ios11.  Furthermore the Slim Book is by far the best case/keyboard for the iPad Pro 10.5.  It works exactly as advertised and after going through several other keyboard cases for my iPad Pro I finally found one that does what I need it to do!  I even tried the Rugged Messenger for my iPad Pro and while it provided superior protection, the flap was annoying, did not work comfortably on my lap, the screen continually slipped down and did not stay secure in the limited angels it supprts and created a footprint making it hard to fit on a airplane table.  The Slim Book on the other hand solve all these problem.  The screen securely stays in whatever position I put it in, the footprint is small for table surfaces, the outer shell is textured for a nice feel and the pencil holder is a nice touch!  The keyboard itself is like all other Zagg keyboards - reliable with a long lasting battery.  And of course like all the Zagg iPad keyboard cases,  magnet make it extremely easy to remove the iPad from the case with a simple tug for convential iPad use.  All in all I give this keyboard 5 stars - not sure why I cannot post a review anywhere else but in this question forum.     Zagg - you have a definite winner here over the competition - you need to make more of these cases!  And more advertising!

So the keyboard is wireless but there is no stand aspect to the iPad piece? If you went to separate them and use the keyboard it will be with the iPad laying flat on the surface?

Asked by: calhoun4
Yes your right. I'm not sure why they removed the kick stand from the setup. A major over site in my estimation. I have bought a competitors setup because of no IPAD stand. When they create a setup with a Ipad Kickstand, I'll switch back from their competitor.
