Apple ipad Air 2 Keyboard Cover – Inateck Ultra-Slim Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Case with Auto Wake / Sleep Function and Multi-Angle Stand for Apple iPad Air 2 – Black
This iPad Air 2 keyboard case by Inateck is probably the most innovative keyboard case I’ve ever tried.
It’s a lightweight cover that contains a slim, integrated keyboard.
The innovation is in the functionality. It features the popular sleep/wake function triggered by opening and closing the cover, but it also features an auto-on for the keyboard itself.
When the cover is folded back and the tablet rests (landscape orientation) on the back edge, a magnetic connection is secured that not only holds the tablet securely in place, but also turns on the keyboard automatically.
This is truly the only keyboard I’ve seen that does this. The case itself is a matte pebble finish that is both professional and sophisticated. The iPad fits into a hard plastic “shell” that is attached to the front cover (where the keyboard rests) by a length of flexible fabric similar to that of the proprietary Apple covers.
In fact, to see this cover from the outside, it’s very similar to the Apple cover. In fact, you’d never know it contained a keyboard–it’s that thin. The keyboard is a traditional qwerty board with a typical number row above the letter keys.
The keys are all large and responsive to even the lightest touch. Control, function, cmd and option keys are all easily accessible. Finally, the cutouts for all ports and buttons are precise, accurately placed and allow for use of both front and back cams. Pairing via Bluetooth was extremely easy–virtually plug and play with no configuration necessary.
Overall, this is a fabulous case at a budget-friendly price point.
