New Apple iPad pro smart keyboard
I have a 1st gen 12.9in iPad pro, which I got when they first came out. I use it for nearly everything. Originally I had a smart keyboard, but eventually it got damaged and died through no fault of the product itself. I haven’t been willing to pony up the dough to buy a new one, but recently the frustration of typing on a touch screen (right now, for example) has made me reconsider buying one.
HOWEVER, I was talking to a friend about it and they said they had heard many people complain that the new smart keyboard isn’t as well made as the old one, that their friends have had usability issues and etc.
Is there any validity to these claims? The most common one I heard is that it would simply stop working some months into use. I don’t want to drop $150 on something that’s going to give up the ghost before the year is out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also, if not the smart keyboard, are there any good alternatives?
