Reviews & Questions
Rugged Book Case with Backlit Keyboard for the Apple 9.7-inch iPad Pro/Air 2 (English US) is rated out of 5 by 118.Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve62305 from Hinge was a weakness in early versions; Better now The ZAGG Rugged Book provides incredible protection for an iPad. We've owned about a half dozen over the years. Most eventually suffered hinge breakage both in and out of warranty. BTW, ZAGG provides unrivaled warranty service. Best I've ever seen. Anyway, with this newest Rugged Book purchase that replaced a broken hinge Rugged Book, I am pleased to see that the hinge has been redesigned to allow nearly 180 degree opening thereby eliminating the hinge stress that would occur on previous versions that only opened to 85-90 degrees. Hopefully, this will eliminate the problem. Over the years, we've tried other keyboard cases for our many iPads, but always returned to the ZAGG Rugged Book even knowing about the hinge weakness (when I bought this last one I had no idea the hinge had been redesigned) because of the incredible protection they provide.Date published: 2019-05-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Sammi69 from Durable and yet lightweight Previously had the slim and after a year plastic around IPad was cracking.

I need to ask the other two questions separately due to question length requirements. Also still unclear now the product is released, (2) does the lightning port opening allow the Apple Pencil to be charged direct from the 9.7" iPad Pro?As I can't correct my prior answer, I've added this additional comment to clarify my prior statement. I have received a new Rugged Book for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. My prior answer said "Air" incorrectly, but I assure you that my Rugged Book is specifically for the newly released 9.7-inch iPad Pro, not the iPad Air. The iPad I'm using has Apple Pencil capabilities. I've tried using the lightning port with the Apple Pencil while the iPad Pro was still in the case portion of the Rugged Book and it will not fit. If I could attach pictures, I would. I've also posted a review of the case, but it hasn't shown up on the website yet. It was a rather glowing review because I'm quite happy with the new Rugged Book overall, I just don't want people buying it thinking that the Apple Pencil will fit while the case is on the iPad. I'm sorry for the error and any potential confusion from my original answer. - Corey (Originally posted as Anonymous)Date published: 2017-08-03
Does this keyboard have multi-color backlight?Yes, multicolors are available, but you have to turn on the backlight each and every time you use the keyboard. The feature does not stay enabled.Date published: 2016-08-01
I signed up for the email list to stay informed on when this will be released, but there wasn't an option for Apple iPad Pro 9.7. I selected other. Just something you may want to add...We all want to know when it will be released? Can you add the email box to be notified? Why is this not posted yet????Date published: 2016-05-11
In the demonstration video the circular hole around the camera lens appears to cover up the flash bulb rendering it useless. Will you please provide a close-up view of all ports and openings so we know exactly what we are buying?Confirmation from my recent purchase of the Rugged Book for the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro... The opening for the camera on the back of the case is now a triangle to accommodate the added flash and one of the new microphone locations. The video and promotional images are for an older model. The new case has been designed specifically for the specifications of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.Date published: 2016-08-01
I just purchased the Folio Case w/keyboard. After I got home I set my iPad Pro 9.7 up. Everything was great except there are no cut outs for the 4 speakers on the 9.7 iPad. Will the Rugged Book have cuts for these 4 speakers? Yes, it will have cutouts for all 4 speakers.Date published: 2016-11-28
I know from the specs and video that the battery life is only 2 years, that worries me a bit. I mean that seems like a short time for a keyboard that I will probably be using for so much. Is there a way to replace the battery after the 2 years? No, they're not saying the battery will fail after 2 years. They are saying that if you fully charge the battery, and use it as they propose, it will be 2 years before you have to charge it up again. You can charge it over and over again, of course.Date published: 2017-05-15
Why are the most recent reviewers saying the rugged book for Ipad Pro 9.7 has multicolor backlight options whereas all customer care staff I have spoken to (at least 5 so far) have assured me the only backlight color is white?Yes, you can choose from multiple keyboard backlights options, not just white. (I received this model). However, you have to turn on the backlight each and every time you turn on the keyboard. You can not set it so that the backlight works every time you use the keyboard.Date published: 2019-03-23
