We’ve previously covered the best Bluetooth cases for the iPad Air and iPad Air 2. Today, we shift our focus on the iPad Air’s little brother, the iPad Mini. Unlike the ones for the iPad Air, all cases on this list is can be used for all iPad Mini users, be it the first and original iteration, or the latest iteration, the iPad Mini 3. Without further ado, let’s dive into the best Bluetooth cases for your iPad Mini.
Starting off this list is a keyboard case from Fintie, a company that takes a more minimalist approach in making accessories, including your iPad Mini. At only 0.38 inches thick, its ultra slim design can still add maximum protection with minimal bulk. Furthermore, the hard laptop-style keyboard with high end materials along with a spring mechanism underneath each case ensures tactile response, helping you type faster without having to worry about breaking or destroying your keyboard. This case also serves as a multi-angle stand, paired with sturdy swivel hinges, allowing you to dock your iPad Mini into your most comfortable typing position, and allows you to open and close your iPad Mini just like a notebook. Speaking of opening and closing, its smart cover also automatically wakes/sleeps your iPad Mini as soon as your open/close the case.
One thing that benefits iPad Mini users is that when paired with the right case, carrying around your iPad Mini would just like be carrying around a notebook. This keyboard case by Anker could be just one of them, thanks to its synthetic leather exterior which should closely resemble a notebook. Its features comes pretty standard and are the most fundamental ones when it comes to Bluetooth keyboard cases: multiple viewing angles and a smart cover.
Anker also puts a lot of emphasis on the case’s battery life, featuring power saving modes and a high capacity battery, which Anker claims to be able to last your for over 4 months, as compared to 6 months for the iPad Air version. It looks pretty long at first glance, but like I said on the best keyboard cases for the iPad Air, it has “4 months” written all over it but Anker fails to emphasize along with it that that is only the case if you use it for up to 2 hours per day. In other words, its battery life would be approximately 120 hours. That still isn’t bad considering the competition, but emphasizing “4 months” while leaving out “2 hours per day” is a bit disappointing. Marketing strategy, I guess. Nonetheless, this keyboard case for your iPad Mini is still a solid option.
This keyboard case by JETech transforms your iPad Mini into a mini Mac, as this very low profile Bluetooth keyboard features classic Apple functions and iOS commands. As for the case itself, your iPad Mini is sure to be protected with the high quality hard clamshell this keyboard case is shielded in. Furthermore, its multi-adjustable stand allows you 360-degree vertical and horizontal orientations, which is a feature not every case is capable of. Its smart cover also saves you the hassle of pressing the power button every time you want to wake your device or put it to sleep, as the case automatically does so when you close or open the cover. The battery life is also above average, giving you 60 hours of use.
We are somewhat reminded of the Otterbox cases when looking at this keyboard case by New Trent, and rightfully so as this case gives your iPad Mini a very rugged look. That being said, the rugged look it gives is not just for the sake of looks, but for protection. Its rugged design with a rubberized outer body makes your iPad Mini splash resistant, dirtproof, and shockproof. The case also comes with a multi-adjustable stand for horizontal and vertical positions, and a smart cover to automatically sleep/wake your iPad. For those of you going on an adventure, or for those of you who simply want the hardcore protection this keyboard case gives, this one is definitely worth a look.
Along with most cases on this list, Snugg also boasts to have an ultra-slim keyboard case for your iPad Mini. Along with that, this keyboard case is also made of high quality and lightweight materials, so this definitely will not add too much weight when carrying it around, without sacrificing quality.
What makes this keyboard very unique and is probably the first thing you notice is that you are not only given multiple viewing angles, but you can also rotate your iPad Mini horizontally, which could come in handy anytime you might need to do so. But wait, there’s more. This case also supports 180-degree flip, so you can flip your iPad Mini over when the keyboard is not in use. Lastly, this elegant-looking case also comes in black, green, purple, and red. So at least you have that option. For those of you looking for a very versatile and high quality case, look no further than this Bluetooth keyboard case by Snugg.
Capping off this list is the Bluetooth keyboard case by Logitech. This keyboard comes with iOS shortcuts,allowing you to type faster, and is a big bonus for those looking for that feature in Bluetooth keyboards. Moreover, your iPad Mini is sure to be protected due to its durable and water-repellent nature covering both the front and back of your iPad Mini. Furthermore, this case also has what Logitech calls as a “SecureLock System” which include low-profile clips that keeps the corners of your iPad Mini firmly fastened to the case, and a powerful magnet that keeps the case securely closed. Lastly, this case also serves as a dual-view stand and holds your iPad Mini upright for typing or flat for web browsing when the keyboard is not in use. This case is one of the more expensive ones, but taking into consideration the that this comes from Logitech, this keyboard case is still worth a look.
