Apple runs through a handful of potential defects as in an internal memo which is sent to its authorized repair providers and retail stores, some units have been exhibited. Stuck keys ( and repeating keystrokes ), unresponsive keys, and problems connecting to the iPad via the smart connector of the table are included in those units.
The Smart Keyboards are available in 12.9 inches and 9.7-inch versions. Both the versions correspond with the two current iPad Pro sizes.
$15 is the retail price of 9.7-inch version. And 12.9 inch is available in $170.
