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

3 of the best iPad Air 2 keyboard cases

The iPad Air 2 doesn't have a Smart Connector, but with a 9.7-inch screen and plenty of power it's still ideally suited for productivity, so why not give it an upgrade with one of these keyboard cases?

1. Anker Bluetooth Folio Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2

Long-lasting and quiet

Colors: Black

6-month battery life
Quiet keys
Bland design
Covers one of the microphones

This Anker Bluetooth Folio Keyboard Case is a solid option for the iPad Air 2. A 6-month battery life means you’ll only be charging it twice a year, and a case that stays locked shut when the slate isn’t in use ensures your iPad is safe from scrapes and falls.

The case also allows you to have your iPad Air 2 either upright or laid flat, and the keys are designed to be quiet, so you can type without bothering those around you. 

You should be aware that this case covers one of the iPad’s microphones, but Anker claims this doesn’t affect sound quality.

2. Belkin QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2

Shiny, slim and stylish

Colors: Black, White

High-end build
Thin and light
Only comes in two colors

This keyboard case uses aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, for a finish that’s just as premium as the iPad it’s attached to.

It’s also thin and light, so you can happily chuck it in your bag without being weighed down, and with well-spaced keys you’ll be able to type comfortably.

Like any good keyboard case it also automatically sleeps and wakes your iPad when it’s opened or closed, and you can angle your tablet in a variety of positions, for comfortable use whatever position you’re in.

3. Logitech Type+ Case for iPad Air 2

A top choice with a high price

Colors: Black, Purple, Bright Green, Smooth Dark Blue, Woven Black, Woven Electric Blue

Loads of color choices
Well-spaced keys
Only 3 months of life

The Logitech Type+ is one of the more premium iPad Air 2 cases, in terms of both price and features. The keys are well-spaced, to help you type quickly and accurately, and there’s also a row of iOS shortcuts to speed things up further.

But despite being spacious, this keyboard case is thin and light. It’s also designed to keep your iPad safe from bumps, scratches and even minor spills, and it will automatically sleep and wake your slate when it’s opened or closed. 

Its 3 months of battery life isn’t as impressive as some rivals, but otherwise this case is hard to beat.
