If you find yourself typing often, editing documents, making presentations, writing articles and what not with your iPad, a physical keyboard that can connect to your iPad proves to be very useful. More time is saved, and more things are done faster when using a physical keyboard as opposed to doing all of those things on the on-screen keyboard of your iPad. Furthermore, a physical keyboard that connects to your iPad via Bluetooth is even more practical and convenient.
Say goodbye to tangled wires, messy workplaces, and even shortage of the product’s life due to the wire being constantly pulled, bent and squished. We are here to share with you some of the best iPad Bluetooth keyboards available today.
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, and to put the cherry on top, Sharkk provides its customers with excellent first class customer service.

The Airbender 3.0 from New Trent primarily stands out among other Bluetooth keyboards for featuring a sturdy 360-degree revolution for your iPad. In other words, you can view your iPad in landscape or portrait mode by simply 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 well enough for users to 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.
At only 6.9 mm thick, this keyboard is one of the thinnest available out there. On top of that, this keyboard by Zagg offers up to 30% more typing room compared to other Bluetooth keyboard. Pretty sweet thinking how thin it is.
Zagg does not stop there in surprising us. The keyboard itself is made of island-style keys and is very responsive, providing users a natural and speedy typing experience. Now here’s what makes this keyboard very unique: the keyboard has backlit keys that can be customized with different colors and brightness. This is very useful especially when using this in low-light areas, and it is more fun and personalized, too.
The case itself is made of a durable leather-textured cover, and is resilient enough to protect your iPad against scratches, dust, and dents. Overall, this is a really good case, even close to perfect. However, using this case adds some weight to your iPad, which is something not everyone can deal with. But if you are one who wants to transform your iPad Air into a slick looking netbook with backlit keys and does not mind the price tag, then this Bluetooth keyboard is the one for you.
This Bluetooth Keyboard from Logitech is the most expensive in this list, and understandably so. It is very thin, light, and offers full-size keys with iOS shortcuts on board for a fast and fluid typing experience for its users. It also features having the ability to automatically wake/sleep your iPad as you open/close the cover, which is very hassle-free. For a superior experience holding your iPad in place, this keyboard is equipped with powerful magnetic strips that secure your iPad, allowing the case to be perfectly aligned with your iPad at all times, especially when you are on the go.
This keyboard has everything you need in a Bluetooth keyboard, and even more, making this the perfect complement to your iPad.
Bluetooth keyboards do not get any simpler than this. This keyboard is just a keyboard, giving you a “mini iMac” experience with your iPad. As simple as this keyboard gets, Anker does not disappoint us. The very quiet, low-profile keys are very comfortable to type with and bring along with it a very minimalistic and modern way of connecting a keyboard to your iPad. Aside from being very clean-looking, Anker focuses on battery life in this keyboard. It will automatically go into power saving mode after 10 minutes of inactivity, and will wake after 2-3 seconds of pressing a button. This keyboard boasts to last for as long as 700 hours. That gives you half a year before you would have to charge this keyboard again.
Since this is nothing but just a keyboard, you would have to separately purchase an iPad stand to best utilize this keyboard. Other than that, if you prefer having a full sized keyboard that is very light weight and easy to carry while not disappointing in user experience, this is a keyboard that must be seriously considered.
What better way is there to have a keyboard for your iPad than to have one that is made from the maker of the iPad itself? If the previous keyboard mentioned in this list gives you a “mini iMac” experience, well, how much more so with this product as you get the real deal. This aluminum keyboard from Apple is conventionally used for Macs, but is also compatible with all iPad models. That being said, it must also be noted that some function keys may work only on Macs, and not on iPads.
This version, of course, brings improvements when compared to the previous model. The most notable of differences is that this model now only require two AA batteries, unlike previous models which require three AA batteries. With that in light, battery life is still left protected as its power saving features are second to none. If you prefer having products from the maker of the iPad to ensure quality, look no further than this one.
