Product Description

Together at last. A keyboard and cover combo for your iPad mini. Out for coffee with a quick message to send? Do it with the perfect partner.

A perfect pair.

Trade in tapping for typing and give yourself a break from typos. Featuring low-profile, whisper-quiet keys, and a familiar Mac-style layout, our keyboard aims to please. The retractable, durable plastic and metal stand firmly holds your iPad mini at a comfortable viewing angle.

Powerful perseverance.

At Anker, quality products just make sense, so we built the Anker® Ultra-thin with grade A batteries and an auto sleep mode, which together keep you going up to two months between charges, freeing you to worry less and work (or play) more.

  • Well pleased
  • I have been using this keyboard for about a month and am very pleased. Layout is easy to remember. Magnets hold well and the stand holds steady at a good angle.

Renee I.
  • Not for me.
  • So this isn't quite what I wanted so I am returning. The pros of the keyboard listed in other reviews are pretty accurate. The only thing I truly didn't like is that there is no apostrophe which is awkward when you are a touch typer like me. You have to hit the function key to get to apostrophe or quotes. But overall seems like a good keyboard. Ultimately I wasn't paying attention enough when I ordered and I didn't just want a detachable keyboard. I wanted a case with a keyboard. My iPad has been in a Moko folio case and my iPad seemed super vulnerable without a case. But again that's my fault for not reading the description carefully enough.

  • Best product for someone on the go...
  • This is a great product, I love that whenever I need to type something up it is ready and available. It is perfect since I work 10 hour days and take classes online and the battery life is great too....

  • Great keyboard for the price!
  • I really enjoy the aesthetic and the functionality of this keyboard. The color blends well with my iPad so when it is folded it looks uniform. The keys are also very nice to use, and feel better than my laptop's keyboard. There are some glitchy things that happen when typing, usually when it is in standby and I just start to type, but it is usually fixed on its own. Overall, I would recommend this keyboard for those who want a more portable way to write notes in class.

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.  How do you keep it closed?
There is a magnetised section that will adhere to the iPad Mini to keep it closed.
Q9.  Is this same as the Folio keyboard case?
No, it does not come with a case
Q10.  Can I use this on my lap e.g. on the train?
Yes.
Q11.  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.
Q12.  How come the arrow keys are not working in the browser?
The arrow keys will only work when you are typing text.

Using voice dictation

I use voice dictation a lot.  Is there a way to use voice dictation on the iPad mini when also using the Anker bluetooth keyboard?

If not, is there a shortcut to transition back to the built in keyboard instead to have access to the microphone?

Thanks!

Unfortunately you can't use it at the same time as the keyboard. However, the connect button on the keyboard will allow you to access the keyboard.

Disconecting keyboard

Really love the keyboard, easy to setup, and stays connected, unlike other types I`ve owned.

What is the corrrect sequence to disconnect and go back to the on-screen keyboard? The problem I`m having is after powering down bluetooth and removing keyboard, the on-screen board pops up and stays there, locking up the ipad.

Thanks for your help, BobK

Have you pressed the 'Connect' button on the keyboard to disconnect as well?

Try doing this again, and when it locks the iPad, hold the power button and home button down for about 15 seconds.

This will force restart your iPad. Please try this and let me know if it works again.

Bluetooth keyboard for iPad mini
 Hi folks Iam looking for a UK supplier for a silver bluetooth keyboard cover for an iPad mini. I have checked Amazon they only have it in blackThanks Alun

I have this Bluetooth keyboard cover in silver, which I purchased from Amazon U.S.  When I use the Amazon app on my iPad I can switch freely from buying from Amazon UK to Amazon U.S. and simply complete the purchase normally. I've never found out how to do that on a desktop computer. But what I'm saying is that you should be able to log in to Amazon U.S. and purchase the silver version.

Can't pair
I'm bought it online at Amazon.com and my sister sent to Brazil to me. Unfortunatelly it doesn't work. My ipad just can't find it, it does not appear on my devices list when bluetooth is on. I can't pair this keyboard with my ipad. I'm so sad. I've tried everything!

Charger
I bought this product on Amazon and I love it but I lost the charger cord so it will be useless to me soon. Is there anyway to buy just the cord?

If this is like the bigger one for iPad, then it's just a standard microUSB cable that most android/kindle/nokia devices use isn't it? Available for less than a £1/$1 online

As Stemcgoo said, you just need a Micro USB to USB cable. These are available from most good electronics stores as well as online retailers.

Only Anker, look no further!
I am very impressed by this brand. The keyboard exceeded my expectations! They keys are comfortable, soft, and wont scratch your ipad mini when in case mode. It also acts as a smart case putting the ipad to sleep. Perfect for a trip to the coffee shop or business work out of town with the range of free word processing, database, and other apps in the app store. The shortcut keys are great and easy to understand!I find myself quickly grabbing this case to take notes, recipies, and most importantly, write up contracts on the go for my photography business. You never know where you are going to be when someone needs a waiver sent over ASAP!

Our latest model is the Astro3 12,000mAh but this doesn't necessarily mean it's better for what you need.

If you get in touch with our customer service guys at support@ianker.com and let them know which batteries you're interested in as well as what you'll be using them for then they'll be able to give you some great advice.

As the features are different between the two models, without knowing what you want to use it for, one may be better than the other (both are great).
