Anker Ultra-Thin Bluetooth Keyboard Cover for iPad Air / iPad Air 2

Anker Ultra-Thin Bluetooth Keyboard Cover for iPad Air / iPad Air 2

40W car charger - product

Product Description

Everything you love about your iPad, amplified.

Start to finish simplicity

From opening the cover to closing it, experience intuitive use at its best. Opening the cover automatically turns on both your iPad and the keyboard (closing it turns them off). To start typing, simply set your iPad in the groove and the stand will pop up. Fewer buttons. More automation. Simple, just like your iPad.

Trade in tapping for typing.

Take a break from typos and enjoy the comfort and efficiency of typing without sacrificing portability. Molded keycaps, iPad-dedicated hot keys and an almost full-size keyboard layout create the ideal typing experience.

Six-month stamina

At Anker, quality products just make sense, so we built in a super-sized battery that keeps you going six months or more between charges, freeing you to worry less and work (or play) more.

  • I ordered this for my son . He really likes it other then it is wearing on the corners and edges. What I mean by this is that color is rubbing off were he is putting the screen to the keyboard and also on the edges were it is being laid down. Not really sure if there is any fix for this or not. Other than that it works very well.

  • Good keyboard, depends on your typing style and the apps you use.
  • I had previously owned (and loved) the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard for iPad. I recently purchased an iPad Air 2 and needed a case, but the reviews for the new Logitech iPad Air 2 keyboard were terrible and I decided to look elsewhere. I bought this Anker keyboard cover. Lots of positives - the iPad is easily fixed and removed, keyboard works with the iPad in both Landscape and Portrait orientation, and the keyboard keys feel pretty good.The only negative I've noticed is that the iPad holder attaches the iPad closer to the keys than was the case with the Logitech. If you tend to type with your fingers extended you will likely bump your fingers into your iPad touch screen. Depending on what app you are using, it might cause problems. I journal with Day One, and it has a row of soft keys at the very bottom of the screen. If I need to hit a number key, I will almost always bump a soft key by mistake. If you type with your fingers bent at a right angle, you will be fine. If the apps you type with don't have soft keys at the bottom, you should be fine too... Otherwise, a very good keyboard and seems like a good value, too.

  • The perfect companion piece for iPads!
  • This has been the perfect companion piece for my iPad Air 2. The magnetic latch snaps into place reliable and is easy to detach. The stand function pops up with a reassuring click and holds the iPad firmly. The keyboard is comfortable to use and the keys have a tactile feel similar to most mac keyboards. And the battery life has been amazing. I think I have only charged it twice - more out of paranoia than it not working - since receiving it.For me this has transformed how I use my iPad. Rather than simply a tablet, this makes it almost as good as using a laptop.

Customer FAQ

Q1.  The wrong characters are coming out when I type. Why is this?
Please make sure that no water or other liquid has gotten inside of the keyboard, and that it has not been subjected to any rough physical treatment, as doing so may cause internal components to be misplaced.
Q2.  My Bluetooth keyboard is experiencing limited coverage. Why is this?
Please make sure that there is no interference from other devices, then try pairing again.
Q3.  Why isn’t my Bluetooth keyboard working?
The Bluetooth keyboard will not work without a Bluetooth HID profile or driver installed. Please make sure that your device is properly equipped.
Q4.  My Bluetooth keyboard keeps disconnecting from my device. Why is this?
Please check that the keyboard still has sufficient power, and that it is not experiencing any interference from other devices, then try pairing again.
Q5.  Why isn’t my Bluetooth keyboard working with my Android-equipped device?
The Bluetooth keyboard is only compatible with Android 3.0 and above. Please upgrade your system if needed.
Q6.  Can I use my Apple keyboard and regular keyboard interchangeably?
Both keyboards may be used, given the keyboard is compatible with your operating system. There are some minor differences with regard to control keys, however, such as the Command key on the Apple keyboard and the Windows key on the regular keyboard. For example, when using a regular keyboard with a Mac, the Command key function will no longer have any use.
Q7.  Why is the Anker keyboard so expensive?
We incorporate top-quality chips and other raw materials into our products to ensure maximum performance. We have strict manufacturing standards and require quality inspection of all of our finished products. All defective goods are sent back for reprocessing, as we believe that higher costs during the manufacturing process result in a better customer experience. Moreover, we have one of the world’s most professional customer service teams standing behind each of our products.
Q8.  Does it come with a case?
No, it is a keyboard only, but it can double as a cover to protect your iPad Air.
Q9.  How do you keep it closed?
There is a magnetised section that will adhere to the iPad Air to keep it closed.
Q10.  Does it have Smartcover?
Yes. Opening and closing the durable smart cover automatically triggers your iPad Air's sleep and wake modes.
Q11.  How come the arrow keys are not working in the browser?
The arrow keys will only work when you are typing text.
Q12.  How come the keyboard shows it is connected but keystrokes aren't registered when I type?
First, unpair the keyboard.

Then refresh your device and the keyboard and re-pair it.

Odd keys not working?

Hi,

I bought this keyboard the other day, got it set up really easily and it's been working fine.  Then yesterday some of the keys stopped working, specifically a,s,d,f,t,y,tab, caps lock and the left shift key".  I though it may be low on charge, so charged it up.  turned it off then on again.  Upaired it and re-paired it to the ipad 2.  Still not working.

What can I do?  I love this keyboard, but it's just un-useable.

Anker wireless keyboard, ultra thin

Just got mine from Amazon. Very good feeling typing on it, It is very simple to setup and so far it works great. Am a very frequent traveller so am looking forward to test it on the road. So far it works very well. Important keys such as the home button, and the lock key are there with a combination of keys, so that is nice. Numbers are a bit smaller than the rest of the keys, but I have not trouble getting to them. I type without looking at the keyboard, and I am typing at the same speed and comfort as when am in my Dell Laptop.

Great purchase so far.

I agree about the number keys, but having dedicated number keys beats having to switch screens like using a virtual keyboard. I use a BT ultra-slim numeric keypad when I have to do any serious spreadsheet work. So, like you, I would rather have the rest of the keys useful for touch-typing. Thanks for the comments and feedback.

Press the Fn + C keys together. The keyboard name will come up on your list of available devices. Be sure you turned Bluetooth on first on your Air 2. Let us know if that doesn't do it for you.

Turn Bluetooth on on the keyboard/case with the Fn and C keys. Once the keyboard is activated you should be able to find it from your iPad's Bluetooth menu.

Does the Anker Ultra-Thin Bluetooth Keyboard Cover for iPad Air / iPad Air 2 allow the iPad to stand in the portrait mode, securely?

I don't know what the marketing response to your question would be, but as a real-life user my answer would be no. Perhaps "just barely in a pinch" but as far as "securely", I didn't have any luck trying that.

Yes in portrait mode but not the best thing to do 

Because it easliy knocks down

This keyboard is designed for use with the iPad in landscape, we would not recommend using it in portrait mode.

Until somebody invents perfection, things can and will go wrong. The good news is you still have a LOT of warranty left. The even better news is that Anker's customer service is as close to perfect as it gets. They're probably fighting right now over who get's to help you out, all you have to do is email them at support@ianker.com

This product will not discover my iPad 2

I just purchased this product from Amazon as it was listed as being compatible with iPad air 1/2 and 2/3/4 regular iPads.

I have had Bluetooth switched on the keyboard and the iPad and they will not discover each other.

Advice needed please

Great, so what you are saying is that you are not aware that Amazon have retailers selling your products that are not compatible with the models actually advertised. That's really good service, top work!
