Everything works after the upgrade, even Siri and Messaging after the upgrade.

It also comes with a key cap remover, and a switch remover, and (5) spare switches!
I guess in case a mechanical key breaks, you can just replace that particular key switch.
I got this $60 keyboard. Mechanical (loud clickity clack, perfect for touch typist... very easy on the fingers, great feedback), LED backlit, aluminum base, with wrist rest, and large size.... may not be everyone's cup of key, but hits all my needs/wants.
