Why I Won’t Buy Another Apple Smart Keyboard Cover.

As useful as Apple’s Smart Keyboard for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is, I will never buy one for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro I bought earlier this year. The photos here show the sorry state of the keyboard after a mere 18 months after purchase. And, this deterioration started well before it was a year old. Note that this Smart Keyboard Cover didn’t have a “hard life”. It was only used at home (I carry an iPad mini 4 when on the go). I expect more from a $160 product and you should too.

Having experience quality issues with other Apple branded iPad covers, I opted for a $10 cover with a magnet that works with the iPad’s sleep mechanism that works fine. And, after 6 months, it still looks fine.

I would, however, like to get a keyboard cover for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and will continue searching for one.
