iPad Pro Magic Keyboard Skin… too slippery?
I just got my Magic Keyboard Skin from dbrand because according to them, they specifically developed a skin to not leave residue or damage the polyurethane on the iPad Pro Magic Keyboard. I got a matte black skin, the cutouts and quality are great, a breeze to install, and with a hairdryer the Apple logo is prominent too. It’s pretty close to the keyboard color too which is what I wanted, nothing flashy or gaudy.
But now my iPad has zero grip on my desk. There is no resistance I sometimes push it forward on my desk just tapping the screen. I’m afraid if a gust of wind comes through my window it’s going to blow it off my desk. The material of the Magic Keyboard does a great job at keeping the iPad secure on the table, the skin makes it slide all around.
I really like the way the skin looks, and I like keeping this keyboard protected, after all it’s a $300 investment. But after a day of this skin installed, I’m almost ready to rip it off and brave the elements again because this has no grip on a surface anymore.
I’d be open to getting a new skin too, does anyone know if the dbrand leather skin or the carbon fiber do any better at making it more “grippy” on a desk? Or is this just the case with any vinyl wrap?
Pretty disappointed because other than the lack of friction on surfaces the skin looks fantastic and I have more peace of mind placing it down on most surfaces, whereas before I would wipe any surface down.
