Written by  Nov 30, 2017
It's time to get a keyboard for that shiny Apple iPad Pro you've just bought a little present for yourself.

Whether you have Apple's largest iPad, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, or the slightly newer and smaller iPad Pro 10.5, there is a keyboard out there to help turn these powerhouses into the productivity machines they were designed to be, supporting your workflow on the go.

There aren't quite as many keyboard options as there are cases, the latter of which you can find in our separate cases features, but we have rounded up a few for both iPad Pro devices that will help you type out those emails, spreadsheets and notes.

As usual, we will keep updating this feature and adding more as they catch our eye so keep checking back if one of the lovely options below doesn't tickle your fancy.

The connector allows for charging and two-way exchange of data, and it folds down to become a slim cover that protects the tablet's display when not in use. The keys feature a spill-resistant woven fabric, and the keyboard itself has a mixture of nylon and metal.
