To use the iPad as a PC, pull up the on-screen keyboard and type away. However, if you do a heavy amount of typing, the tactile feel of a real keyboard might be preferable.Here we will talk about keyboard case or cover.
Why Keyboard Case?
If you’ve ever thought, “I don’t like typing on this iPad screen—I wish I had a real keyboard,” odds are, definitely you could benefit from a keyboard cover. You can dramatically increase your iPad productivity with real, tactile keys that let you type almost as quickly and with as few errors for your work.
What is a keyboard Case?
A keyboard cover combines the advantages of a physical keyboard with a protective case—instead of having to carry a separate keyboard, you have a keyboard built right into a case that’s similar to the one you’re likely already using.
A keyboard cover can be a bit bulkier since it has to accommodate the keyboard. Most keyboard cases are specifically designed to let you type on your lap, as you would with a laptop, making a keyboard cover better for portable use than an iPad with a separate keyboard and stand.
What to look for in a Keyboard Case?
- A good typing experience: The most important part of any iPad keyboard cover is the keyboard itself. After all, if typing on the keyboard isn’t dramatically better than typing on the iPad’s screen, there’s no point to the extra weight and expense.
- The right key layout: The keyboard should use a standard key layout with all the expected keys in all the correct locations.
- Good keys: The keys shouldn’t be so small or so cramped that you regularly press adjacent keys by accident.
- Dedicated iPadOS keys: We like having iPadOS-specific keys for functions such as Spotlight (search), adjusting brightness, and Home. W
- Solid protection: A good keyboard case must protect your iPad well.
- Reasonable size and weight: A keyboard case makes an iPad bulkier and heavier, but it shouldn’t do so to an unreasonable extent. It also shouldn’t take up too deep space on your desk.
- An easy on-off design: We appreciate key board cases that make it simple to leave the keyboard behind when you don’t need it so you aren’t forced to carry extra bulk and weight.
- Multiple angle options: Multiple angles for propping up your iPad give you more flexibility in terms of ergonomics, comfort, and avoiding screen glare but at the very least. a case should offer an angle that lets you comfortably view the screen but isn’t easy to tip over.
- Long battery life: The less you have to worry about your keyboard’s battery dying, the better. Luckily, this is rarely an issue with current iPad key boards.
