5 Best iPad Pro Keyboard Cases (11-inch and 12.9-inch)
Updated: May 13
While Coronavirus outbreak may have prevented the 4th-gen iPad Pro from hogging the limelight at a glittering spring event, the tablet hasn’t failed to impress, due largely to a series of notable specs including the pro-grade camera and studio-quality mics. Not to mention, custom-designed LiDAR Scanner that looks set to offer a great AR experience and the trackpad support that makes the iPad enviable to even high-end notebooks including the mighty MacBook Pros. Though these specs sound really impressive, the exclusion of a free keyboard case is a bit hard to explain – despite the supercomputer high pitch. But worry not, we’ve lined up the 5 best 2020 iPad Pro cases (both for 12.9-inch and 11-inch models) so that you can get the most out of your beast as a full-on laptop.
Best 4th-Gen iPad Pro Keyboard Cases in 2020
Although Apple’s keyboard cases for the iPad Pro appear to be the go-to options, third-party offerings are no less competent. Aside from pairing elegantly with the iPad, they are also priced way lower than Apple’s offerings. Thus, buying a keyboard cover that can deliver a fairly convenient typing experience at an affordable price point isn’t a big deal. Let’s take a quick glance at both the first and third-party keyboard covers for the 4th-gen iPad Pro to find out what they have in store!
1 | Apple Smart Keyboard Folio
Smart Keyboard Folio for 11-inch iPad Pro - US English The Smart Keyboard Folio for the 11-inch iPad Pro is a full-size keyboard when you need it to be provides elegant front and back protection when you don't and allows for convenient viewing angles. And with no charging or pairing required just attach the keyboard and start typing.
2 | Apple Magic Keyboard
The Magic Keyboard is the current computer keyboard produced by Apple Inc. It was released alongside the Magic Mouse 2 and the Magic Trackpad 2 in October 2015. An extended layout version called the Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad was released in June 2017. It is the successor to the Apple Wireless Keyboard.
3 | Brydge Pro
Designed for 11" iPad Pro (Late 2018), Bluetooth 4.1, USB Type-C Port, QWERTY Keyboard Layout (English) The silver Brydge Pro 11.0 Bluetooth Keyboard is designed to work with your late 2018 11 iPad Pro without tying you down. Simply connect it with the integrated Bluetooth 4.1 technology or opt for a wired mode with the available USB Type-C port and included cable. For your typing convenience this keyboard features a QWERTY layout and up to a 180? viewing angle.
4 | Brydge Pro+
The Brydge Pro+ is instantly very familiar for anyone who has seen a Brydge product in the past. It is crafted from aluminum with a full set of backlit keys in the center. Where it differs is the trackpad that has been integrated between the spacebar and the edge of the keyboard. The trackpad is sufficiently large, especially on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and has a smooth glass surface on the top, just as Apple's Magic Trackpad does. It felt good as we used the trackpad to navigate through iPad OS on an iPad Pro.
5 | Slim Folio Pro
The Logitech Slim Folio Pro is a more affordable alternative to the Smart Keyboard Folio that for most people, is going to provide a better typing experience because the keys aren't as thin and flat. The keyboard itself is excellent, but because this is a folio case, it has the major downside of being bulky.
6 | Jelly Comb
For the folks hunting for good yet cheap keyboard cases for the 4th generation iPad Pros, this offering from Jelly Comb is the right way to go for multiple reasons. First and foremost, the keyboard case ismade of soft TPU material and comes with responsive keysthat are comfortable to type. Besides, the 7-color backlight with three brightness levels ensures you don’t have any problem while typing in the low-lit environments. Add to that the650mAh battery that delivers up to 220 hours of battery lifeand it seems more or less a done deal for a $40-$45 price tag.
