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

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

40W car charger - product

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.

Customer Reviews

  • Good case. I know one review said that it ...
  • Good case. I know one review said that it didn't sleep when closed, but it does. The keyboard is quite responsive and has a nice feel to it. So far, the magnets seem to work just fine for keeping the keyboard in place. If it becomes a problem, then I'll just use some velco squares to keep it in place. My only negative is that on a previous Anker ipad case it had a nice magnetic ridge in the keyboard for keeping the ipad in place while typing. I miss that, but I suspect it may be due to the fact that the Ipad air has less metal casing exposed. I bought this for use with an Ipad Air 2. While it fits securely in the case, the camera hole is not in the right place. It cuts off a portion of the image making the pictures look like it was taken with a hidden spy cam. So it wasn't made specially for an ipad air 2. But overall I really like the case.

  • Excellent buddy for school shores
  • It works with my iPhone 5 too. Very practical. It's perfect for taking notes and for college. I have written papers on it that I later edit in the computer.

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.

Will this also fit on a ipad3


I learnt from a post in the forums that the same case for ipad 3 is discontinued in US. So I'm wondering if this could fit on my ipad3?

Here's what I found out: Ipad Air dimensions are (9.45 x 6.67 x 0.30 inches) which is not much different from Ipad 3's dimesions (9.50 x 7.31 x 0.37 inches).. But I still wonder if this cover would fit or not?

The keyboard would pair with the iPad 3 but you the iPad would not fit well.

By 100% compatible with the iPad Air 2 do you mean the off/on auto sleep function works with this keyboard and the iPad Air 2?

Reply Report as spam Feb 4, 2015 at 11:19 AM

I understand it in that way, Stephen, it will work perfectly with the Ipad Air 2 without any limitation.

Sometimes you just want to say, "Awesome." OK, so maybe "good" isn't quite "awesome" but it's just as effective at conveying the message. Or maybe his English isn't up to expressing more....

Make one for Note 10.1 2014?

Just wondering, will Anker be making any Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 compatible keyboard cases?  There is a huge underserved customer base who are looking for a slim, portable keyboard case for the Note 10.1 2014.  It would be great if you guys decided to make one!

sorry if this has been posted before, i'm not sure how to search all the posts on the site.

Quote From ANKER Team:  I checked on two forums to gauge some interest, i guess it's not as big as i originally have thought.  rumors are the galaxy note 10.1 2015 should be released soon, if and when that happens, please consider making a keyboard case!

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.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review.

The case should indeed turn off the iPad when you close it, if you give our customer service guys a shout at and let them know then they'll be able to help you out further.
