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.

Customer Reviews

Evan Valardi
  • Excellent Quality, Highly Recomend.
  • This keyboard is not for everyone, but it is more than outstanding. This keyboard is made of excellent materials (plastic of a durable kind, and a good color. The keys are very responsive (I am typing on them now.) The weight is excellent, the magnet connection is strong. The kyboard is easy to deploy, change screen orientations, and put back into "case mode." The thickness is great because it matches the ipad and looks like it is made for it. My favorite feature is the ease of transition between "laptop" and tablet. It is as simple as picking it up. Great for those who still need the versatility of an ipad but want the leasure of a keyboard. AKA those who are in secure settings (office, school) and or travel a lot.Pros:WeightThicknessKey responsivenessQualityPriceColorVersatilityCons:DOES NOT PROTECT THE BACK OF THE IPADThis is the only drawback of this style of ipad keyboard. This is very much reconciled when traveling with a sleeve case that are very cheap (<15 USD)

  • It's fine, not great.
  • This keyboard is perfect for my purposes. It is a great stand, accommodating my iPad in either portrait or landscape positions. It's very thin, which is also something that I was looking for. It seems to have two shortcomings, however. The number keys run along the very top row of the keyboard and are teeny-tiny, and I have very small hands and long thin fingers. I imagine someone with thicker hands, as a man, might have a problem with that. Fortunately, I don't use them all that often, so can put up with that. The other item is a bit more of a pain. The keyboard's Bluetooth connection doesn't stay connected to my iPad Air (iPad 6). It's like the connection falls off, and has to be "re-primed" or something every few minutes if you are not using the keyboard constantly. It is extremely enjoying. I had a Logitech keyboard prior to this with my iPad 2, and did not have either of these issues. When I upgraded my iPad, unfortunately I could not find that Logitech was yet making a very thin keyboard compatible with the new iPad, which is why I decided on this keyboard. If I found both to be available now, I would buy another Logitech.

  • Great product. Ease of use and quick connectivity to Bluetooth every time you turn on the iPad is excellent.

Barbara Hostetler
  • Almost 100% happy!
  • I love this keyboard-cover, almost 100%. It is lightweight and comfortable to type on. My only complaint would be that it immediately scratched the back of my iPad Air. As soon as I noticed that the pop-up holder was scratching the iPad, I covered the spot with a piece of surgical tape. Problem solved for me......however it would be nice if it hadn't happened at all. This is not nearly enough reason for me to send it back, like it said, for the most part I love it.

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.

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.

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!

As TechToy said, it'll work if your Fire has Bluetooth.

The size will be different though so it may not be able to work as a case.

The original Kindle Fire's were not Bluetooth compatible, the HD ones are. To be sure, here's a simple test.

1. Pull down the top menu (where you go to adjust volume and brightness) and select “more”

2. Click on “Device”

3. Select “About”

4. If the bottom line of text says “Bluetooth MAC address” then your Kindle Fire is ready for Blutooth accessories!

After re-reading this I have something to add. Please be aware that this product is a COVER for the iPad Air that has a keyboard built in. Of course it won't physically fit a Kindle of any type as a cover. However, Anker does sell several other Bluetooth keyboards that can be paired to a Bluetooth-enabled Kindle.

Auto-Correct Feature

I have just purchased this product and I am still in the testing stage. On first glance it looks really good, but I am having an issue with the ipad's (Air2) auto correct functions. If I use the on-screen keyboard and type the word "typign" the device auto-corrects it to "typing". If I use the TC930 the word is highlighted with a red line, which means you have to select the word with your finger and choose an option - is there anyway to set it to the same settings as the on-screen keyboard?

Many thanks

Ross

Unfortunately there is no autocorrect option available with the external keyboard. It will function just like a keyboard for a laptop or computer.

Auto turn-off don't work for iPad Air 2

I have just took delivery of a TC930. After pairing the device to my iPad Air 2, I tested and found that the auto-off function does not work with the iPad. Reading the other posts, and the reply from an Anker techie, it's clear that this function does not work on iPad Air 2 model. I am not sure if it works on older model. I would like to know why, and why this is misrepresented on your description above?

The keyboard is correctly described as being designed for the iPad Air and Anker has publicly stated that the auto-off function does not work with the Air 2. Where do you feel it was misrepresented?

Apologies if you feel mislead, we have noted on this page and on the listing that this feature won't work with the iPad Air 2.

Remember, if you're within 30 days as well then you can make a return for a full refund as well. Either get in touch with Amazon or with our customer service team at support@ianker.com.

Thanks for the reply.

I am generally happy with this product. Its well-designed, very responsive keys that works well with my fats fingers, and its definitely more affordable than the Logitech - which was the main reason I bought Anker. Delivery was also super quick.

Pertaining to my comments, the public statement from Anker that the auto-sleep function does not work on the iPad Air 2 can only be found in the comments area, but not the main product description area "Start to finish simplicity."  

Tech Toy Wizard, you mentioned that on your post on Jan 5.

The spirit of the description should be clarified, but if its the letter of the description - works with iPad Air but don't work with iPad Air 2 - sure, the description is not misleading. Anyhow, not a big issue for me...I just need to remember to press the sleep button. Overall, I am happy with the product.

folks-

 

bought the tc930 keyboard on amazon from the Anker seller. Unfortunately, the keyboard arrived without any instructions, or the rubber pads. Instead of returning the keyboard to you folks, I thought it might be easier for everyone to send me the missing instructions and rubber pads.

 

Let me know so I can let Amazon know what I'm going to do.

 

Thank you,
