Re-tested on krillin ( rc-proposed/bq-aquaris.en / 270 ), this time with bluez 5.37 installed from the silo.
@Simon, how could this not be a system settings app failure? As I pointed out in my description, pairing this keyboard works fine with every other device I tried, including two Ubuntu desktop systems. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to bluez in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1551858 Title: [bluetooth] Connecting to Apple BT keyboard fails due to PIN prompt Status in Canonical System Image: New Status in bluez package in Ubuntu: New Status in ubuntu-system-settings package in Ubuntu: New Bug description: Connecting to the latest generation Apple BT keyboard ( the one with the USB port & no batteries ) fails on an Ubuntu Touch device, as when you press the "Connect" button on the device page, a dialog titled "Bluetooth Pairing Request" is displayed, with the following text: Please confirm that the PIN displayed on 'Magic Keyboard' matches this one: XXXXXX The dialog has "Cancel" and "Confirm PIN" buttons. The keyboard has no display on which a PIN could be displayed. When using other devices ( Ubuntu Desktop 15.10, 16.04, Android, OS X, ... ) to connect this keyboard all that's necessary is to click/press the 'Connect' button in the appropriate place, and the keyboard automatically connects, and is usable with no other actions required from the user. Reproduced on krillin ( rc-proposed/bq-aquris.en/270 ) which has bluez 5.36-0ubuntu2~overlay1 installed. Reproduced on arale ( rc-proposed/meizu.en/258 ) which has bluez 5.37 installed from silo 39. Note, after dismissing the dialog, subsequent attempts to connect may not re-display the PIN dialog, instead nothing happens. I've found that this requires power cycling the keyboard to clear and cause the PIN dialog to be displayed again.
