Buy an iPad Keyboard

When using an iPad, not everyone likes to use a touchscreen keyboard, which is where a portable keyboard comes into play. They are portable, lightweight, and easy to set up. You can use a conventional keyboard with your iPad.

When shopping for an iPad keyboard, make sure that you look for wireless features and Bluetooth connectivity.

Below, you'll find different options for bluetooth wireless keyboards for the Apple iPad. These are great options for those of you who just prefer a physical keyboard versus the on-screen one. Personally, having a full keyboard is better because you'll run into fewer problems, in terms of typos and accidents when sending emails, writing notes, and planning your calendar.

The iPad keyboards are simple. You can purchase the portable Apple keyboard, or any one of the following options. You will find that bluetooth keyboards will range anywhere from $50 to $150.
