Apple today released new international versions of the Smart Keyboard designed for the iPad Pro, which could previously only be purchased with a United States English layout.

As 9to5Mac points out, the Smart Keyboard can be purchased in British English, Norwegian, Czech, Slovak, Swiss, Dutch, Korean, Spanish, Italian, German, Danish, Swedish, French, Arabic and other language layouts when ordering a Smart Keyboard alone or as part of an iPad Pro purchase in different countries.

The new language-specific Smart Keyboards are available starting today through Apple's online store and are priced the same as the U.S. English Smart Keyboard. Retail Apple Stores will also likely start carrying the new Smart Keyboards in the near future.

These things look and feel so clunky, you know you're doing it wrong when Microsoft pulls it off better.

I wish they would debut smart keyboards that are actually smart and a pleasure to use.

I'm talking gestures, backlight, "clickier" keys, notifications on the front panel, etc. All those fancy things they've patented over the years but refuse to bring to market, along with a quality look and feel. Right now it looks cheap, it feels mushy, and it costs way too much. It's just not worth it at all.
Those things would cost actual money to make. Apples not here for that. Gotta pile up those billions

Why the hell did it take them so long?

There is no earthly reason why they couldn't have brought these out when the iPad Pro first went on sale.

How many times do I have to bang my head against a brick wall? Yet another tardy decision from Apple that demonstrates everything that is wrong with this company.

Apple, you suck. Get off your bloody ass and bring out some new Macs, for crying out loud.

I got a smart keyboard when I got my 12" iPP and love it - it adds little weight and I find it very responsive and a pleasure to use, although backlighting would be a nice addition :)
