Why a keyboard case for your iPad Air 4?

The iPad Air 4 might not be the lates model but it's still one of the best iPads you can buy. It offers nearly Pro levels of performance without the price tag. Add on a keyboard case and you can expand your iPad Air's functionality so it's almost like a mini laptop. If you get a keyboard with a trackpad, it's even closer to being a laptop. The trackpad can be used for cursor and multi-gesture control, giving you plenty of ways to interact with iPadOS.

Of course, if you use your iPad Air 4 more for watching movies, surfing the web, and the occasional email, a less expensive keyboard will usually suffice. It's still good to have a way to type 'properly' on your iPad Air 4, but look for a cheaper example. The newer iPad Air 5 is exactly the same size as the iPad Air 4, so cases are interchangeable between the two. Plus, some cases (like Apple's own Magic keyboard) are even interchangeable between the 11-inch iPad Pro and the iPad Air models, so it's worth checking.

Which of the best iPad Air 4 keyboard cases is for you?

Our favorite iPad Air 4 keyboard case is the Apple Magic Keyboard. It's expensive but it really is the ultimate iPad keyboard case. Designed by Apple engineers, it's there to enhance your iPad's functionality in every way. The cantilevered design is elegant while giving you a choice of viewing angles. Also, the trackpad makes it easy to do plenty of things fast, like switch between apps or access the app switcher.

If you want something more reasonably priced, however, there's always the Logitech Folio Touch. Its fully backlit keyboard means you can type just about anywhere, no matter what time of day it is. As it uses the Smart Connector, you don't have to worry about Bluetooth pairing either, so it's super speedy to use.

If a keyboard isn't essential, there's always the best iPad Air 4 cases too.
