How to Use a Keyboard and Trackpad on Your iPad

If you’re looking for a keyboard for your iPad, you should consider a folio iPad case, which has a magnetic base for the keyboard and a slot for Apple’s Magic Pencil. You can also get Bluetooth keyboards that work with the iPad, but they don’t always support Mac-specific keyboard shortcuts. Another problem with folio iPad cases is that they have only one viewing angle, which isn’t as convenient as using a keyboard alone.

Apple APIs enhance ipad keyboard with trackpad

Trackpad support on the iPad is now system-level, meaning that developers can implement gesture-based control for this new device. The pointer, or cursor, appears as a floating circle and can be used to highlight user interface elements, press buttons, and assist with text selection. Similar to a mouse pointer, the cursor can also switch between apps and activate features like Control Center and Dock, as well as invoke Slideover multitasking.

Bluetooth keyboards don’t always support Mac-specific keyboard shortcuts

The Apple Bluetooth keyboard supports iOS, and most models are compatible with the operating system. You can also use a stand-alone keyboard such as the Amazon Basics Bluetooth Keyboard for Apple Devices. However, be aware that Apple keyboards don’t always support Mac-specific keyboard shortcuts. For example, if you’re using JAWS, you can’t use the shortcut to open a document. If that’s the case, you might want to use a Bluetooth keyboard.

Magic Keyboard

The iPad comes with two viewing angles. Using the Magic Keyboard, you can view both. Start by leaving one app on your screen, then use the trackpad to bring up the Dock and drag the second app to the left or right. Watch this tutorial to get a better understanding of how to use the iPad Split View. Once you’re familiar with the keyboard and trackpad, you’ll be more productive with your iPad.

Logitech Combo Touch has a single viewing angle

If you’re looking for a new keyboard that works with your iPad, you’ve probably already considered the Logitech Combo Touch. This low-profile keyboard and detachable iPad case offers a single viewing angle for the iPad keyboard and trackpad. It’s compatible with iPad Pro models and fourth-generation iPad Airs. It draws its power directly from the iPad. However, it won’t work with other devices such as the Apple Pencil, so make sure to check out the compatibility chart before purchasing this accessory.

Logitech Combo Touch has no ports

The Logitech Combo Touch is an iPad keyboard accessory that supports multi-finger navigation gestures. It was designed in close cooperation with Apple, but it does have limited functionality. Fortunately, the Combo Touch is available in multiple colors and comes with a limited warranty. Although it may not be the most attractive keyboard on the market, it does offer a solid keyboard and trackpad for iPad users.

Zagg’s Messenger Folio

The Messenger Folio iPad keyboard with trackpad is a stylish, compact, and durable accessory. It features laptop-style keys, a durable cover, and a tab for Apple’s stylus. It has an attractive, polished design and fits neatly in tight spaces. You can purchase the Messenger Folio for just $59.

Fintie Soft TPU Keyboard Case

A Fintie Soft TPU Keyboard Cover for iPad 7th Gen is an excellent mobile keyboard that connects via Bluetooth to any compatible device. It is compatible with iOS, iPadOS, and Windows. The soft TPU keyboard features alphanumeric keys and scissor switches for comfortable typing. Although it doesn’t have a backlight, it feels good to use and is quite small.
