3 of the best New iPad keyboard cases
The new iPad is a relatively affordable option from Apple, offering a 9.7-inch screen and a stylish design, but lacking the power and features of the iPad Pro range, which many will find overkill.
Of course, if you’re planning to do a lot of typing then an iPad Pro might be a better option, but there are some decent keyboard cases available for the new iPad as well, such as the following three.

1. Fintie New iPad 9.7-inch 2017 Keyboard Case
A case to fit any style
Colors: Black, Navy, Purple, Rose Gold, Royal Blue, Blossom, Bohemian Ledge, Don’t Touch, Emerald Illusions, Galaxy, Gem Shield, Love Tree, Shades of Blue, Starry Night
There’s a lot to like about the Fintie New iPad 9.7-inch Keyboard Case, starting with its low price and the wide range of colors and designs that it’s available in.
When it comes to using the thing, you can fine-tune the viewing angle, and with a spring mechanism underneath each key it will feel more like using a proper desktop keyboard than some keyboard cases do.
The case also provides full body protection for your tablet, and the keyboard part is removable, so you don’t have to carry it with you when you don’t need it.
2. Anker Ultra Slim Keyboard Cover for New iPad 9.7
Premium style without a premium price
The Anker Ultra Slim Keyboard Cover is fairly affordable but looks expensive, with a slim, lightweight design that matches the iPad itself.
It has a long-lasting battery that can go up to six months between charges. It’s also easily removable if you’d rather use your iPad au naturel, and it’s almost a full-size keyboard, with molded key caps, so you get a comfortable typing experience.
Anker’s case isn’t as protective as some, only covering the front of your iPad, but that helps keep the bulk down.
3. Logitech Slim Folio Case
Long-lasting and full of features
Colors: Black, Blue
The Logitech Slim Folio Case is one of the most premium options available for the new iPad, and we mean that both in terms of price and features.
For one thing, its battery lasts up to four years, though it uses a coin cell, so after that you’ll need to replace the battery, rather than charging it.
It also has a full row of iOS shortcut keys, so you can easily change the volume or track for example. It should also offer a decent amount of protection, and has large, well-spaced keys for fast and accurate typing.
