21 of the best iPad keyboard cases: get the right keys for your tablet

3 of the best iPad Pro 12.9 keyboard cases

The iPad Pro 12.9 (2016)'s expansive screen makes it the best iPad for productivity, and the one that can most benefit from a keyboard.

It's now even better too, thanks to the new iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) model, but they're exactly the same size, so the same keyboard cases fit both of them. The following are among the best options.

1. Fyy Magnetically Detachable Keyboard

Cheap and wireless

Colors: Black, Gold, Navy Blue, Purple

Cheap
Four color options
Doesn’t use Smart Connector
Kickstand may not keep it upright on uneven surfaces

This Fyy keyboard case is far cheaper than most of the big name ones and that’s one of its main selling points, but you still get a decent case for your money.

It’s a wireless Bluetooth one, rather than a Smart Connector one, so it will occasionally need charging, but it has a stylish faux-leather exterior, a holder for the Apple Pencil and comes in a choice of four colors.

It also has a slot for paperwork if you ever find yourself wanting to take notes the old-fashioned way, but you shouldn’t need to, as the keyboard itself is a good size and includes various function keys.

2. Snugg 360 Degree Rotatable Keyboard Case

A full 360

Colors: Black, Green, Blue, Pink

Rotatable
Several color choices
Looks cheap
Uses Bluetooth

This Snugg keyboard is all about versatility. You can rotate the iPad 360 degrees inside the case and stand it at multiple angles, so whether you’re typing or viewing the case will accommodate you.

It also comes in a range of bright colors, which won’t appeal to everyone, but certainly help it stand out from other cases. It’s a Bluetooth keyboard though, so it will need charging from time to time.

3. Logitech Create Backlit Case for iPad Pro 12.9

Made for serious typers

Colors: Black, Blue, Red

Full-size keys
iOS shortcuts
Not cheap
Could drain your iPad’s battery

We’ve included this very same keyboard in the iPad Pro 9.7 selection, but Logitech makes a 12.9-inch model too, and it’s good enough to be worth highlighting for both slates.

The Logitech Create Keyboard Case has an assortment of standout features, from full-size backlit keys, which let you type comfortably, even in the dark, to its row of iOS shortcuts along the top.

The Logitech Create also makes use of the Smart Connector for easy pairing and no charging, and the case itself provides some protection, as well as automatically waking your iPad up when you open it, and sleeping it when it’s closed.
