The Create keys are even backlit (that you can adjust) to make it easier to type on your iPad Pro in dark-lit places. The keyboard has a row of iOS-specific shortcuts and commands. You can go back to your Home screen, search your iPad Pro or the web, adjust the brightness, and also control audio from the keyboard without having to tap on the iPad at all
