I've been given a MacBook Pro (now running macOS High Sierra 10.13.6), and a third-party bluetooth keyboard. I have a number of issues with the keyboard:
- it's not very sensitive - many keystrokes get missed
- if I leave the computer for a few minutes I have to wait about 10 seconds before I can use the keyboard again
- it disconnects while I'm typing
- the function keys are not affected by the keyboard setting in System Settings (I always have to press fn+ a function key, although the built-in keyboard is affected
I have a couple of wireless keyboards for my Windows PCs, and they don't have any of the above problems. I spoke to an Apple retailer, and they told me I would have all the same issues with a genuine Apple Magic Keyboard. I find it incredible that Apple would sell such an inferior product. I don't want to spend AU$179 just to find out I still have all the same problems.
Was what I was told by the Apple retailer accurate that a genuine Apple Magic Keyboard would have all the same issues?
