Connecting a ZAGG keyboard to an iPad may sound like a daunting task, but the end result is a sleek and modern solution that will make typing a breeze. Whether you’re logging your daily mileage on a commute or huddled around a dinner table, a Zagg keyboard can help you get the most out of your tablet. Using Bluetooth, your Zagg will connect with the iPad and let you type faster and more efficiently than ever.
There are many ZAGG keyboards to choose from. These include a full sized folio, a portable folio and even a rugged model. The key to choosing a ZAGG keyboard is to find the best fit for your needs. If you need to protect your iPad from spills or bumps, the folio will give you extra coverage. However, if you plan on taking your iPad with you on the go, the folio may not be the best choice. A Zagg keyboard is well built and can stand up to the rigors of travel.
To pair your ZAGG keyboard to your iPad, you’ll need to enable Bluetooth and follow a few easy steps. First, you’ll need to find your keyboard’s Connect button. This is often located on the top left side of your keyboard. Once you’ve found it, it’s time to turn it on.
Now, you’ll need to press the ZAGG Rugged Book icon in your iOS device’s settings. Depending on your device, this will take a few seconds. When you do, your keyboard will be ready to go. Its speakers are high quality and the volume control buttons are stiff and responsive.
Another important step is to ensure your ZAGG keyboard is actually working. Check to see if it has a charging cable. Some models don’t come with one. You’ll need to use a USB-C charging cable if you want to use the keyboard on the go.
In terms of the actual pairing process, you’ll need to be sure to do the right thing. Thankfully, the ZAGG website has a handy pairing guide that helps you do just that. Follow these instructions and your new Zagg keyboard will be ready to pair with your iPad in no time.
After the initial pairing, your ZAGG keyboard will stay paired to your iPad for up to a year. That’s quite a feat, especially given the long battery life and the fact that it’s likely not plugged into your computer or notebook all the time. Lastly, you’ll need to check out the ZAGG Keyboard APP to keep your ZAGG keyboard’s firmware up to date. While the ZAGG Keyboard APP isn’t as flashy as its cousin, it’s a great way to keep your ZAGG keyboard in tip-top shape.
Although the ZAGG Pro Keys and the Apple Magic Keyboard aren’t exactly identical, the ZAGG Pro Keys is a bit more expensive and comes with a case. Both offer some neat features, including multi-device pairing, a built-in battery and multicolored backlighting.
