Engadget Review

Apple's iPad Pro keyboard is thin, light and water-resistant, and doesn't need to be charged. It's also uncomfortable to type on and is missing some amenities you'll find on competing keyboards, like backlighting and settings shortcut keys. It will suffice in a pinch but for the money, you can do better.
