Built Like a Rock
Firstly, right off the bat, the construction of this thing is solid. Apple’s Smart Keyboard cover/folio was always a little bit flimsy, but due to the nature of how the Magic Keyboard works, it can’t afford to cut any corners — it needs the heft and weight to hold a heavy iPad suspended in place without tipping over or sagging under the load.
The hinge mechanisms stay in place remarkably well, and the main part of the cover clips into place when opened, and stays shut properly when closed. In fact, realistically you need to use both hands to open it up, so it’s not going to flop open by accident. Although it adds considerable weight to the iPad Pro, its a good kind of weight — the kind that makes you feel secure that your iPad isn’t going anywhere while you’re using it. However, it’s also trivial to remove your iPad Pro from it when you want to use it unencumbered by the keyboard.
