Best Keyboards For Ipad

As more features are added to Apple’s iPad and iPad Pro, making them almost as capable as a full computer, many of us use them as our primary portable devices to get work done.

However, typing on a touch screen can be quite frustrating.

We’ve tested some of the most popular wireless Bluetooth keyboards available, and we can help you find one that suits your needs so you can stay productive no matter where you are.

1. Logitech K380 – Best Portable Keyboard For iPad

Logitech K380 - Best Portable Keyboard For iPad

The best portable iPad keyboard we’ve tested so far is the Logitech K380.

It is a small and lightweight keyboard that is easy to carry with you and has multi-device pairing with up to three devices via Bluetooth.

This keyboard uses scissor switches, and they offer a good typing experience, especially for an inexpensive mobile keyboard.

There is enough space between the keys to help reduce typing errors, it feels light when typing, and despite not having a wrist rest, it shouldn’t cause any fatigue. It is very quiet to write, so the others around you will not.

The Logitech Options software allows for a bit of customization, as you can reprogram certain keys for a list of preset functions, but it’s only available on Windows and MacOS, and there’s no internal memory.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a backlight if you want to use it in a dark environment.

On the other hand, since it uses two AAA batteries, you don’t have to worry about carrying a cable to keep it charged. For an inexpensive mobile keyboard, this one is reliable, making it the best iPad keyboard we’ve tested so far.

2. Apple Magic Keyboard – Best bluetooth keyboard

Apple Magic Keyboard - Best bluetooth keyboard

If you want a keyboard with a better build quality so you don’t have to worry about it breaking when you put it in your bag, then take a look at the Apple Magic Keyboard.

IT doesn’t have multi-device pairing like the Logitech K380, but being an Apple product, it is fully compatible with macOS, iOS, and iPadOS.

It’s an extremely well-built keyboard with an aluminum frame that’s lightweight to carry around, and the scissor switches provide great typing quality.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t have dedicated software for customization, so it’s not ideal for use in dark environments.

Overall, Logitech is a better choice, especially for multitaskers, but if build quality is important to you, then Apple is the best out there.

3. Logitech Slim Folio Pro – Best Folio Case Keyboard For iPad Pro

Logitech Slim Folio Pro - Best Folio Case Keyboard For iPad Pro

The best keyboard case for iPad Pro is the Logitech Slim Folio Pro. Its case is for the third generation iPad Pro and is available in sizes of 11 and 12.9 inches.

As the keyboard is designed for an iPad, it is fully compatible with iPadOS, and although some keys do not work on other operating systems, all alphanumeric keys will work if you want to use the keyboard for another device.

Overall, it offers passable typing quality for an iPad box keyboard. With its rubber dome switches, you won’t get a lot of tactile feedback and the low profile might not be suitable for everyone.

It has no tilt adjustments, but with such a low profile you probably don’t need them. It also has white backlighting, which is great for those late-night work sessions in dark environments.

Unfortunately, while it does need a USB-C cable to charge, it doesn’t come with one in the box, which is very disappointing.

Still, it is a good mobile keyboard for the 3rd generation iPad Pro, making it the best keyboard for the iPad Pro in a folio case.

Main features :

  • Connectivity : Wireless
  • Size : Compact (65%)

4. Brydge 10.2 – Best Keyboards For Ipad

Brydge 10.2 - Best Keyboards For Ipad

If you are looking for a keyboard for your 7th generation iPad, the Brydge 10.2 Keyboard for Apple iPad is a good alternative.

It doesn’t have a case for the iPad like the Logitech Slim Folio Pro. However, when the Brydge is attached to your iPad, the entire setup makes it look like a MacBook Pro.

It is also available in three different colors to match the iPad and overall, it has a decent writing quality.

It has a white backlight if you need to use it in dark environments, but unfortunately, it does not have multi-device pairing.

Even so, it can connect to any device via Bluetooth and you can use the keyboard on its own, without connecting to anything.

Overall, if you want the best iPad Pro folio case keyboard, check out Logitech, but if you want one for your 7th gen iPad, check out Brydge.

5. Obinslab Anne Pro 2 – Best Mechanical Keyboard For iPad

Obinslab Anne Pro 2 - Best Mechanical Keyboard For iPad

The best mechanical keyboard to use with an iPad that we’ve tested so far is the Obinslab Anne Pro 2.

It’s a small, compact keyboard that doesn’t take up much space.

It has an excellent build quality and you can get it with the switches of your choice.

Our unit has the Gateron Brown switches, which are similar to the Cherry MX Browns, but they feel a bit squishy and have a slightly high pre-trip distance.

The keys are very stable and its double-shot PBT keys are ideal for typing. This keyboard connects via Bluetooth and has a multi-device pairing feature that allows you to pair up to four devices simultaneously with easy switching.

It has individually illuminated RGB backlighting and each key can be reprogrammed. However, customization can be challenging, as the software is only available for Windows and MacOS.

Also, the keyboard lacks dedicated navigation keys. However, if you like the feel of mechanical keyboards, this is an excellent choice.
