Apple MM2L2AM/A overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy a more natural typing experience on your 9.7" iPad Pro with the Apple Smart Keyboard. This 64-key keyboard doubles as a protective cover for your iPad Pro's display as well as a stand, folding over to prop up your tablet for typing or media viewing.

Instead of connecting with a cable or pairing via Bluetooth, the Smart Keyboard uses the Smart Connector to send data to your iPad Pro while simultaneously drawing power. Once connected, you can use keyboard shortcuts to perform additional commands. Simply press and hold the Command, Option, or Control keys to see an on-screen list of shortcuts for the app you're using. An on-screen shortcut bar lets you access tools to alter font, alignment, and more.

The seamless top layer of the Smart Keyboard is constructed from a sheet of durable fabric that's coated in a water- and stain-resistant finish. The cover panels are made from three layers, with conductive fabric sandwiched in-between a durable polyurethane exterior and a soft microfiber interior.

    Apple MM2L2AM/A reviews

    Smart Keyboard for the 9.7" iPad Pro is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent The travel on these is good enough that I don't feel like I'm typing on fabric or glass. It's a great response and I feel like I can type just as fast as on a normal keyboard without having to worry about the bulk of the standard Magic Keyboard. Very happy with this keyboard. I do wish it had media control keys (pause/play, volume up, or even brightness control) but it's not that bad since control center is an easy swipe up. Also, don't buy this if you plan on using it in your lap for very long, as it does not stay too steady on your lap like a notebook computer would.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really nice little gizmo I use this keyboard for emails and text messaging, but would have no problem using it on lengthier jobs. The tactile feedback of the keys is good, and it took very little time to get comfortable with this small keyboard. The keyboard attaches to the iPad Pro simply and securely and is powered directly by the iPad battery (not a bluetooth connection). I use the Procreate app for sketching so I lay the tablet flat on a table or hold it in my hands while sitting and the keyboard allows that. Sometimes when shading or laying some color I set things up as I would for typing. The keyboard assembly doubles as a protective cover for the screen, as well. A well-designed product that is fairly priced.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good if you need a keyboard Bottom line, if I had it to do over, I would have just purchased an Apple Smart Cover and used the on-screen keyboard. However, if your iPad is a laptop replacement or if you normally use a keyboard with an iPad, this by Apple is an excellent choice. It is also expensive. After using an iPad without a keyboard for years, I do not find this to be a necessary addition. It has strong magnets, so the cover is not as easy to open as an Apple smart cover, and it is heavy and thicker. I often prefer to use my iPad in portrait position, and the keyboard only is useful in landscape. For heavy typing I use laptop or desktop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best keyboard for the iPad Pro This keyboard is fantastic. It is light, sealed against spills, and mates with the iPad and silicone case perfectly. The drawbacks are that the keys are not backlit, their is no storage for the pen and it is relatively expensive. The keyboard keys are covered with a fabric-like material so I don't know how long this will hold up. My wife,however, has the larger iPad Pro with the larger keyboard. It looks like new after almost a year of heavy use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keyboard, Apple does not disappoint Apple does not disappoint with this keyboard. It is a perfect fit and flows with the design of the iPad. I love that it fits perfectly with the optional case to provide complete coverage & protection for the iPad Pro. It is a slim fit that does not add bulk when you are carrying it with you. The keyboard is quick, responsive and one to which you will easily acclimate. If you don't need the keyboard at the moment, fold it behind the iPad and out of your way. Or, since it's magnetically attached, simply pop it off! I love the flexibility it allows. The only thing I would request to improve is the fact that it only has one viewing angle when in use. It is a reasonable angle and works for me, however 2 or 3 different options would be optimal. I do not regret the purchase and would readily do so again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apple does it again! Great keyboard and must have if you own the iPad Pro. Has really good feel to it when typing. I was little worried about how solid of stand it would be for the iPad when set up. But after trying it the first time I can say I was pleasantly surprised at how solid it was. When folded up and using it for a cover remember only thing keeping it on is a magnet. Really great having a keyboard with my iPad Pro all the time, almost like having laptop. I can do about 90% of everything I do on my iMac on my iPad Pro with keyboard. Little on the expensive side like all Apple accessories, but still worth the money in my opinion. Also love having no batteries is really nice, no pairing to get setup.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Usability Than Expected After selling my iPad Air 2 and purchasing the new 9.7 iPad Pro, I thought I probably would not buy the Smart Keyboard as I had a 12 Macbook that I take when traveling (I use a 27 iMac at home). However, after trying out the smart keyboard in an Apple retail store one day, I was surprised to see how quickly I got used to typing on it. I decided to sell my MacBook and get the smart keyboard so I could use the iPad Pro for my traveling computer. I've done that now, and have no regrets. It's true that the keyboard on the MacBook is definitely superior and if I had to use it all the time, I wouldn't choose the Smart Keyboard. But for travel use, it's fine. The Smart Keyboard does also act as a cover or stand for the iPad, but I often detach it from the iPad (easily done with the Smart Connector) and use the iPad with the Apple Pencil without the extra weight and thickness of the cover.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Keyboard I've heard negative reviews before I bought this keyboard. So many in fact, I almost didn't buy it. However, for the 9.7 this keyboard is great. It's so thin, and the keys become addictive over time. I love typing on this keyboard. The smart connector makes it way better than a Bluetooth keyboard. I'd recommend this keyboard hands down. Haven't seen anything else come close to beating this one.
