Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great so far. Would like so more keyboard shortcuts and a way to get to them easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenience, fantastic design on both ipad models Since I’ve never been impressed with a product enough to give a review - ever - I couldn’t find the place on the webpage which you indicate to leave a review. I hope you’re able to copy/paste what I write, or simply show me *exactly* where to press “leave a review” or whatever it is so that I may do so. Or, just tell your boss that one customer has been so impressed with Zagg products re: The IPad Pro, that he has switched to Apple products to do everyday work computing. Such is the ease and convenience of these products re: moving around and carrying a powerful tool quickly and quietly working without pause or inconvenience. No mean feat...switching my preference to iPaD from “normal” laptops after more than 20 years ... convenience is a big deal, and now the computer power is there... As I told you, I started with the smaller IPad Pro and its flexible, durable case which I’ve used for some time now, and used so often that it impelled me to buy the larger 12.9 inch IPad to use as a laptop haha. I immediately looked for a Zagg replacement for the keyboard. I was disappointed that it didn’t have the very strong magnetic attachment, which is a brilliant engineering choice for the small model, in my opinion, yet it is still an item which I carry around constantly to use as my preferred work choice. Apple owes Zagg a great debt, convincing a 24 year Intel veteran to secretly use an Apple device as his computing device of choice. (For presentations, email, and on-the-go communications.) Chuckle.. And management owes CS a debt for making a problem with a badly-working “d” key go away as neatly as a magician doing a trick. You simply asked me a couple questions, smart as they were, and had a return in the mail before I got off of the phone. Unheard of. One thing..... make the connection of screen to keyboard a stronger and more detachable magnetic like the smaller pro if it’s engineeringly feasible. That would get rid of any lingering doubt keeping me attached to any other “mobile” or “laptop.” Great work. Brilliant. Thanks guys.... thanks for getting me in and out, toay. I despise being on a phone forever, or dealing with bored kids. You’re clearly neither. Pleasure is mine - with you and with Zagg. This is my first an last review. Inform me of ANYTHING Zagg does. (And I don’t do mailing lists.) You guys broke the mold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Compact I previously had a keyboard (another brand) and found it very flimsy and cheap compared to Zagg, however the price wasn’t that much difference. I am very pleased with this keyboard, I feel my iPad is very safe and protected. Love the keyboard, very comfortably raised keys. I had a little trouble with pairing iPhone (toggle back and forth from iPad>iPhone but great customer service at Zagg had me hooked up in no time. Kudos to customer Zagg customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!! I have had 3 ZAGG keyboards for 3 different iPad models. They are flawless. When I purchased my new 12.9 iPad, I almost returned it when I found that Zaggs keyboard was out of stock everywhere. Nonetheless, I got one from another company (not Apple), and hated it every day. There are NO great keyboards out there except for the ZAGG. Lucky for me, it was back in stock and I am a happy camper! I don’t know what they do differently, but it works!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and durable iPad cover and keyboard I had a Logitech smart keyboard and cover that I bought when I got my iPad Pro three years ago. I liked it a lot, but when it stopped working and started shopping for a replacement. I chose this Zagg because I liked that I’d have a case around my iPad and be able to disconnect it from the keyboard when I wanted to just read. I also liked that I could turn it around with the keyboard to the back and it became more of a stand. I would not go back to the Logitech keyboard... no way. This Zagg one is great. It’s heavy, but it is super protective. And the bluetooth keyboard works great. Keys feel good to the touch and I have even used it with my iPhone. Excellent purchase!
Date published: 2019-04-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought one years ago and liked it so much I bought another. Built like a tank and versatile enough to detach screen from keyboard when less is more. Zagg Customer support is there when needed too even years later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Although I am returning this product, it is really a great product! If you want your iPad to turn into a laptop, this is the way to go! For my use, it just makes it too heavy to cart around. It is really a nice and well-made unit! I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a nice keyboard for their iPad!
Date published: 2019-03-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little keyboard! For years I have typed directly into the flat surface of my iPads as though keyboards existed. This time I decided to try to keyboard. It’s great!!! I find myself wishing it had the same touch mouse as my laptop, but gee... ;);). The other “complaint” I would have is that I would like to see a case that would hold bothering my keyboard and pad with a place for the iPencil. Keyboard works well! Glad I made This purchase!
Date published: 2019-03-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from iPad Pro Keyboard I love this keyboard! Been looking for one with all the features for some time now and so glad I pulled the trigger and purchased the Zagg keyboard. Been using it for 2 weeks now and it’s still giving me 3 green flashes on the battery indicator. Easy set up and use. Extremely pleased. Only recommendation I can think of at the moment is to add some rudder grip accents on the iPad cover to prevent from sliding when placed on smooth surfaces and better grip if using it in tablet mode. Not a big deal but would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I’ve had my slim book case for a few weeks now and I love it. I’m still getting used to the fact that it’s still a touch screen and doesn’t have a track pad. I sometimes forget it’s not my MacBook Pro. The keyboard is very responsive. The back lighting is awesome but it doesn’t show through the actual letters like on my MacBook. If I had to change anything, that’d be it. But I like having the ability to change the color of the lights. I also love using this as a stand so I can watch my shows and movies without having to hold the iPad. Battery life is fantastic, as I’ve been using this for 3 weeks and still haven’t had to recharge. It’s energy efficient by turning itself off when not in use, and only draws power when you’re typing on the keyboard. It offers sufficient protection in the closed position as well, and I love that it automatically puts the iPad to sleep when you close it up. All in all this is a great product that integrates very well with the iPad Pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my wife and she absolutely loves it. It works so well with her Apple iPad that she forgets it’s not an actual laptop computer when she uses it. It actually turns her iPad into a laptop. It is a Great investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and Beautiful: Slim Book Case & Keyboard I shopped for and reviewed the rating of several Cases and Keyboards for my IPad 12.9. The Zagg Slim Book Case and Keyboard is the best product I found for my IPad. I have used it now for four months and it is so nice to type on. The Slim Book Case Keyboard has all the function keys that I was looking for on a Keyboard. It makes the IPad look and feel like you are typing on a Laptop. If you are looking for a case that will provide great protection for your IPad, look no further this case provides excellent protection. I have also used other Zagg Keyboard Cases, like the Rugged Messenger Keyboard Case for the IPad 10.5 and were not disappointed with the purchase. Zagg Keyboards are great products.

Date published: 2018-12-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent...So Far! I have owned this keyboard for about 2 months. So far, I love it! But, in all honesty, I loved the first one I bought after two months as well. The hinge on the first unit completely failed after 18 months, well beyond the warranty period. So, ask me again in two years and I’ll be able to provide a more accurate review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Touchscreen MacBook I love this keyboard. It turns my iPad Pro into a touchscreen MacBook. The backlit keys are excellent. I get 10x more productivity out of my iPad now. Extremely happy. Only downside is the added weight but I can deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my tablet already Already dropped my tablet and it was saved by my cover
Date published: 2018-12-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for This set up turned my ipad pro into a lap top. I tried a few other products before Zagg and NOTHING compares to this. I needed something I could type on during class that wouldnt just fall over (also while I am on the couch/bed). I waited for the second edition because the first seemed to have less than steller reviews. I am very glad I did they fixed the issues and this is (in my opinion) the best keyboard on the market. If you are torn between Zagg, Logitech, or Apple keyboards I would highly suggest this keyboard setup. Cons: A little heavy (no heavier than a laptop), opening can be difficult. My ipad tends to come off the hinge if I am not careful (no biggie), The pastic part that goes around the ipad is a little thin (so i cant throw my ipad in frustration....dang...). Also I have been using this product for a few months now, so this is not a “fresh out of the box” review.

Does this model close into a protective case like the Zagg keyboard case for the iPad 3? Where are you shipping from and how long does it take to ship to CA? Is there a reason Best Buy doesn't carry this model?

Asked by: Patrish
Yes this is the same as for other Slim Books for other iPad models.  Just bigger since it has to fit the iPad Pro.   Shipping is from the USA.  I live in Canada to and just posted a review.  I mentioned that you will also have to pay customs fee when you pick it up or it is delivered to you.  This is in addition to ZAGGs shipping costs.  Be mindful of this as my cost was about $40 for customs.  With the exchange rate it drives the price up quite substantially.  However, like I said in the review, I think it is still worth the money.

 Does the KB have keys like "vol" "fwd/rev" for videos "select" "cut" "copy" "paste" as well as iOS shortcuts like "search" "go to hp" "email shortcuts", "skipping apps". I have these & more in my current KB & use them often. Thanks!

Asked by: EBDS
It has keys for volume, fwd/rev for videos, and iOS shortcuts (hp, lock, seeing all open apps, search, Siri, bringing up the on-screen keyboard).  Pressing the cmd button and c (for cut), v(for paste), etc.  Also, if you hold the cmd key an available list of shortcuts pops up.

How do you pair the keyboard to the IPad? 

Asked by: Apjcomm
Pairing your Slim Book with your iPad is easy. It should only need to be paired once, using the following directions. If the connection between your iPad and Slim Book is ever lost, repeat these steps. 1. On your iPad select: SETTINGS > BLUETOOTH > ON. 2. Press and hold the Bluetooth button for three seconds. A blue LED under the Power key will flash until your Slim Book and iPad are paired. 3. Your iPad will display “ZAGG Slim Book” as an available device. Select this option to complete pairing.
