Nowadays mobile computing devices such as smartphones and tablets are often no less powerful than desktops and laptops, and their great advantage over the latter is their portability. However, as we know, the portability comes at a cost, the very fact that you can easily slide your phone into a pocket has a flip side – the on-screen keyboard. Sure, you might get used to it in a while and learn how to make less typos and type faster, but it is unlikely it will ever be compared to a full-fledged hardware keyboard when it comes to user experience. Especially when it comes to long mails, essays and things alike. This forced technology companies to come up with solutions – a Bluetooth keyboard for iPhone or iPad, Android Bluetooth keyboard, etc. The number of option offered in the market today is so large that it becomes difficult to figure out which one suits you best.
If you search online for ‘Best Bluetooth keyboard for iPad’, ‘Best Bluetooth keyboard for Apple TV’, ‘Best Bluetooth keyboard for Android’, or ‘Best iOS keyboard’ the results will return the following:
- Anker Ultra Compact Slim Bluetooth Keyboard
- Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard
- Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard K480
- iClever Portable Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard
- Topre Realforce 87U Tenkyeless
Each of them has its own pros and cons depending on your specific requirements, and do not you forget that ratings such as ‘Top 5 Bluetooth keyboards’ are compiled by people like you and me who might have their own bias and preferences. So their ‘Best keyboard for iOS’ or ‘Best iPad Bluetooth keyboard’ would not be even by shortlisted by you with other things being equal. So keep your options open and if you are still searching for your own iPhone Bluetooth keyboard, read on – we might have something that might suit you.
