When I purchased my iPad, I also spent around £35.00 on a smart cover, which seemed a lot of money at the time. In fairness though, it’s been ideal for my needs, providing good protection as well as a stand for the iPad.
If like me, you already have a decent iPad case and you are just looking for an iPad bluetooth keyboard that’s not an actual iPad keyboard case, there are plenty of options available.
Here are some iPad bluetooth keyboard options that may be suitable to use without the need to replace your existing iPad case:
Best selling and cheapest Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad
This iPad bluetooth keyboard is ridiculously cheap, yet it has nearly 200 5 star customer reviews on Amazon. It features shortcut keys specially designed for iPads, an ultra slim design and has noiseless keys. The only feature it’s lacking is an auto sleep mode. I think this is the perfect iPad bluetooth keyboard for those on a budget. – more info
Anker Ultra Slim Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad
Very similar to the keyboard above in looks and functionality. The Anker iPad bluetooth keyboard is slightly more expensive, but has a better build quality. With over 700 hours of continuous use from 2 AAA batteries and an automatic sleep mode. This wireless keyboard performs almost as well as an Apple keyboard but at a fraction of the cost – more info
Apple’s Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad
For the Apple purist who don’t mind paying 4 or 5 times more for a bluetooth keyboard. Personally I think it’s wiser to choose one of the keyboards above. However if you are a Mac or MacBook user, you will definitely feel more at home with this keyboard. – More info
