Anker Ultra-Slim Folio Case and Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad Air

9901 Bluetooth speaker

Product Description

360°protection without the bulk.

After all, why turn your thin, light tablet into just another low-end brick? Still, we ensured maximum protection. The polycarbonate inner-case easily absorbs drops and bumps while the synthetic leather outer-case guards against water, scratches and inside-the-bag grating - all only adding 0.39in (keyboard included).

A break from typos.

Trade in tapping for typing and give yourself a break from typos. Featuring low-profile, whisper-quiet keys, a familiar Mac-style layout, and iPad-dedicated hot keys, our keyboard aims to please. Plus, magnetically attached, easily pull it off of the case and set up your screen and keyboard just how you like it.

A stand that stands out.

Instead of just one or two angles to choose from, we made every-possible-angle possible - from 45° to fully upright and even more if you use the keyboard as a stopping foot. What's more, we decided to keep the setup simple - no complicated snapping or origami-mimicking folds. Opening the case will do the trick.

  • Great buy!
  • Really great product. The size is just right and the keyboard battery has lasted for about a month now. The keys are nicely positioned. For me it's perfect, but for my husband the keys are a little too small. It's a nice touch that the keyboard is magnetically fastened in place on the case, and provides enough support to hold my iPad in place. Definitely a great investment. Have had it for about 2 months now and have had no problems with 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.  Will this keyboard case work with iPad 4/3/2?
Yes, but the case is designed for iPad Air only.
Q9.  How come my case doesn't trigger the sleep/wake functions on my iPad Air when closed/opened?
This could be down to two reasons. Either the iPad Air is not placed correctly in the case (refer to the photos for the correct alignment). Please also confirm you have enabled Auto sleep/wake in General settings of your iPad Air.
Q10.  Is there a shortcut to send a message using the keyboard?
Press Shift+Cmd+D, but this will only work with iOS's built in Mail app.
Q11.  How do I begin typing again when the keyboard and iPad Air are in sleep mode?
Pressing any key on the keyboard will wake up the iPad Air.
Q12.  Is there a way to change the input language for this keyboard case?
Press Fn+6.

Great Unit
I received this a few days ago, and as usual the packaging is minimal but functional.The box contained the case, keyboard and a USB charging cable, they have chosen to use the most common charging adapter which means that I can use my blackberry charger or my wifes HTC charger although to date the keyboard battery has yet to run down, the keyboard also works whilst it is being charged.The case is functional and fitted my ipad perfectly, holding the tablet firmly in place and all the cut outs were in the correct position and I would say offers reasonable protection.The case is smart looking and would look good on any business mans/womens desk without drawing too much attention to whats inside.I would have liked the closing clasp to have a stronger magnet as I felt the clasp was a little weak and the case did not automatically switch of the ipad which is a little disappointing.The detachable keyboard is small but very usable, finished in black brushed aluminium it looks super smart and is extremely light weight, I was also pleased to see a CAPS indicator which was missing from my Anker Galaxy Tab Keyboard.The keys on the keyboard are great and feel very tactile and have a good spring action.The unit synchronized with my ipad without any drama and I was using the keyboard in less then a minute.I have also synced it with my PC and Raspberry Pi, again no problems.I would very much like to give this a 5/5 but will mark it down a couple of notch's as the clasp I felt was weak and the fact that it does not switch off the ipad when closed means I shall award it 4.8/5.Other than that I can recommend the unit highly, and as a salesman always on the move this has improved my typing on the ipad significantly without adding bulk to my briefcase.I should point out that I have purchased a number of Anker items in the past and one of the main reasons I chose this product over other makes.This review was written using the Anker keyboard.

Hi, I have the Anker Bluetooth Keyboard Case with Stand for my iPad 4 and like it a lot but have just got an air and you don't do this case for it (why not?). Will the slim line case protect the ipad air as well as my other case protects my ipad 4 and also does it automatically close down the ipad when you close it, which is a feature I really like.

Thanks

This case is for the ipad air so it should protect it

This case is designed for the iPad Air and will offer it great protection.

And yes, when you close the case the iPad will automatically shut off its screen and go into Standby mode.

The keyboard will work but the case won't 

 

Keyboard is just bluetooth.

The keyboard would work via Bluetooth but unfortunately this case is designed for an iPad Air so it won't take a 1st Gen iPad.

Can keyboard be stored in case?

Have bought this expecting to be able to store my iPad and keyboard together but it appears keyboard has to be carried separately to avoid scratching the iPad. Is this correct?

Can you put the back of the ipad against the keyboard and fold it?

Keyboard -

Have had this product for 3 weeks and really like it.   This morning - certain keys stopped working (k,l & d, f)     I like the unit, but am disappointed something happened to the keyboard.   

 

It is fully powered.    I turned it on/of and connected/reconnected bluetooth.

Improvement/ new product suggestion
Anker - Love your iPad cases, and there is very little that I would change about them. However one thing I'd absolutely love if you could make it work would be to add the ability to rotate the case so you could use the case/stand functionality in portrait mode - similar to a Targus Versavu. I use my device a lot for taking notes in meetings, etc. and this would be awesome. If you could add this feature, while maintaining the overall slim profile and light weight features we've come to know and expect from your cases, you would have the ultimate iPad case hands down!!

I hope Anker reads this and finds a way, but it may be a double-edged sword. The thing I love the most about their case is the lack of fussy origami folds, tabs, extra hinges, popouts, etc. that it seems every other case has, which always makes other cases thicker, heavier, more complicated and more expensive. I use the Anker aluminum stand to prop my iPad up in portrait mode and it holds the device as well as any case I've seen. Still, it would be nice if Anker was able to come up with something revolutionary.

I've considered that stand myself - it does look like it would be really handly, but you have to have a sturdy surface underneath. Wouldn't work so well on my lap when taking notes during a seminar for instance.

That's very true but I haven't seen a stand that could hold my iPad in portrait mode on my lap. Here's a hint that has worked well for me. Depending on if you're right or left handed, hold the tablet with your opposite hand with your index finger between the front and back cover, your thumb on the front of the table (squeezing against your index finger, and your remaining fingers press against the back of the case as a support to keep the case from tilting forward or back. I use that hold 100% of the time when I'm using the tablet for reading, often resting the bottom of the tablet on my lap for extra support if I'm sitting down.

No Keyboard issues with new version
I'm very happy to report that there are no timeout/sleep issues with the second generation of this product. For those not sure what I'm referring to, the first generation had an issue where if the keyboard was connected to your device and went into sleep mode, it would still show connected on your device, but would not properly "wake up". This was an issue if the keyboard went to sleep for 30+ minutes. This keyboard however does NOT have that issue. I actually left my keyboard connected, and powered on overnight. The next morning it woke up and I was able to continue typing. Perfect! Great job quickly fixing that issue Anker!!

New upgraded model w/ smartcover feature
I received the new, upgraded model in the mail today. As I've only had it for a short time they only thing that I can verify so far is that the SmartCover feature does indeed work with this model, as long as the keyboard is removed. I'm currently testing the keyboard "sleep/disconnect/but still shows as connected" issue to see if that is resolved with this version as well and will update once I can verify that. Aside from those items the case looks identical to the first generation of this product. Same diamond cut relief black exterior, same magnetic latch closure on the cover, same grey microfiber interior, etc. The case itself was wonderful before (other than lack of smart cover) so there really wasn't a need to change anything there.

I haven't found any other company that makes a better overall case than Anker and the price is just as amazing. I bought a spare (non-keyboard) UltraSlim case for my Mini and instead of the diamond cut it has a smooth leather-like cover. I like it BUT to me the diamond cut is as perfect as it gets.

Slim in Size Only!
Anker comes through again with a new Ultra-Slim case and Bluetooth Keyboard for the iPad Air. They were nice enough to supply me with a sample for test and evaluation, but no worries, I promise that my review is fair and honest (this is not my first product review rodeo!). I've given it a thorough going-over and found much to like. First, this is the lightest Bluetooth keyboard I've ever seen. The keyboard weighs just a few ounces; it's so light in fact that it seems almost like a toy. Yet the advertised battery life is 100 hours working and 100 days standby. While I didn't try to test either figure (I do have a life, you know), other Anker keyboards I've tested live up to the advertised specs. Secondly, the keyboard attaches to the magnetized cover. Position it to allow the iPad space to adjust to the desired viewing angle, or remove it entirely. Use in on your iPad or your cell phone; I tested it successfully on my Galaxy S3, Kindle Fire HDX, and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, all list it as the "Anker Keyboard case for iPad 5" and operates perfectly. Next, the iPad itself fits snugly into a polycarbonate case attached to the Folio. I really love this feature; I've highlighted it in reviews of other Anker iPad cases. The case holds the iPad securely - a must considering the cost of the iPad; hold the case at any angle and the iPad remains in place. The Bluetooth connection is easy to set up and remains connected even when the iPad goes to sleep, just hit any key to get things started again. A simple on/off switch and Connect button are present and the keyboard recharges via a micro-USB cable (provided). Now, I'm not a talented typist, but I found the keyboard a little small; a necessary compromise given the size of the iPad Air. You are not going to type War and Peace, at least not without getting used to the small keyboard size. There are, however, a full set of function keys including sound, brightness, and media controls; throw in a lock function, a home key and a few others. The keys have good travel and are responsive to the touch. In fact, I typed the whole review using the keyboard and the Pages application on my iPad Air. A note of caution; with the keyboard in place the iPad does not turn off when you close the case - the keyboard blocks the magnetized case which turns the iPad off. Remove the keyboard and close the cover and the iPad powers down. A magnetized flap closes to secure the cover and folds back when open to stay out of the way. All this at a great price! Grab one of these and make your iPad more functional.

I almost read your review wrong. Thought it was negative at first but then saw how helpful it was. Thanks. I tested a competing brand very extensively and the Anker wins hands down. The other brand had some very positive things going for it but it turned the Air into a boat anchor. The Anker respects the ultralightweightness of the Air.
