Mmm......just went ahead and bought the Apple Magic Keyboard. Not backlit but, in all other aspects, it is a dream to use and works well with the iPad Pro 12.9. Decent key travel, lightweight, comfortable to type on (fast, accurate touch typing possible). Now to memorize the keyboard shortcuts.......... Bonus: the Apple Magic Keyboard works on Android devices via bluetooth (tried it on the Samsung Tab S2). It also works on Windows laptops via USB connection (tried it on the Surface Book).
