Editing documents, spreadsheets, and the like have been a massive comfort with the use of Bluetooth keyboards. No more tangled wires, and more free ports for us to use. Having these Bluetooth keyboards integrated into your iPad case? Now we can do all these typing on the go! We’ve already covered some of the best Bluetooth keyboards for the iPad in general, but today, let us focus more on Bluetooth keyboard cases and the best ones for your iPad Air.
The Airbender 3.0 from New Trent primarily stands out among other Bluetooth keyboards for featuring a sturdy 360-degree revolution for both iterations of the iPad Air. In other words, you can view your iPad in landscape or portrait mode simply by rotating your iPad. Furthermore, you can also detach the iPad itself with its case, while still maintaining the wireless connection with the keyboard, so at least you have the option.
With regards to its typing capabilities, the response is good enough for users not notice a delay. The keys are also the chiclet type, providing a tactile typing experience. As for its design, it is very low profile, but still stylish. The case itself keeps your iPad well protected, too.
We’ve covered a few accessories for the iPad made by JETech and today we add another one to the list. This bluetooth keyboard case is perfectly designed for the first iteration of the iPad Air only, but we’re pretty sure the same product for the iPad Air 2 is in the making and should be out in a few months, if not weeks.
As for its construction, it is made out of high quality hard clamshell case providing full body protection for your iPad Air. Some additional functionalities also include a multi-adjustable stand to allow you to adjust its angle to which suits you best, 360-degree rotation of your iPad Air to allow you to have it on landscape or portrait mode, power saving mode, and the ever so needed smart cover. Lastly, its battery allows you to use this keyboard for 60 hours on a single charge, which is not bad, but also isn’t exemplary.
This keyboard case by Fintie is as straight forward as any case could be, in terms of design and functionality. The case allows you to rotate your iPad Air 360-degrees, so you can have your iPad in either landscape or portrait mode. With that said, Fintie provides us with a low profile, durable, and protective keyboard case. Tactile response of the keyboard keys has also been guaranteed with a spring mechanism underneath each key, which should help you type faster and with less error. Again, this keyboard is only for the iPad Air 1 and not for the iPad Air 2.
The Anker Bluetooth keyboard boasts to provide you with six months of battery life. In other words, you would only have to charge your Bluetooth keyboard twice in a year. Pretty cool, right? Well, the part I do not appreciate is that Anker does not immediately state that that is only the case if you use your keyboard for two hours each day. To put it to scale, you can use this keyboard for approximately 120 hours straight before it dies. 120 hours is not bad at all, I just wish they mentioned that instead of 6 months while leaving out “2 hours per day”, which can be very misleading.
All things aside, this is still a very good and solid option if you are looking for a Bluetooth keyboard case. Its synthetic leather cover and folio interior is definitely pleasing to look at. As for its functionality, your viewing angles may be limited, in fact, you only have two options, to keep it upright, or to lay it down flat. That being said, locking your iPad Air into the upright position automatically wakes the keyboard, which saves you the hassle of having to wake your keyboard up when using it. Unfortunately, this keyboard case is made only for the iPad Air 1, and cannot be used with the iPad Air 2.
At first glance, the first thing you notice when you look at this Bluetooth keyboard case is its design, style, and craftsmanship, which Snugg highlights. Snugg promises its customers with a perfect fit, hight quality materials, different color options, and superb craftsmaship and even goes as far as to include a lifetime guarantee when you purchase this.
What makes this case unique is the ability to rotate your iPad 360 degrees horizontally and 180 degrees flip, which could come in handy on certain occasions. Furthermore this is specially designed for the iPad Air, allowing full access to all of the ports of your iPad without any problems.
This Bluetooth keyboard by Sharkk may look ordinary at first glance, but there is definitely more to it than meets the eye. This case is sleek, stylish, and has a rubberized matte feel. Moreover, this keyboard also serves as a case and an iPad stand, and effectively doing so with multiple viewing angles available. The stand itself is made of brushed aluminum, adding to its stylish finish.
As far as its usability is concerned, Sharkk goes all out in this product. The keys are tight and are very easy to press, the keyboard itself is easy to pair with your iPad. To put the cherry on top, Sharkk also provides its customers with excellent first class customer service.
Your iPad’s native auto correct feature will be disabled while paired with this keyboard. Additionally, this keyboard is specifically designed for the original iPad Air and the iPad Air 2, coming at different prices for each version.
