If you were thinking about picking up the new iPad Air 3 intending to use it for writing up emails, documents, and more, you should know that there are several keyboard options out there for you. From official Apple keyboards to great third-party options, here are the best keyboards for your new iPad Air 3.

Bottom line

These are some of the best options you'll find to fit out the iPad Air 3. For the combination of protection with a highly-portable keyboard, I'd go with the Apple Smart Keyboard (opens in new tab) for your iPad. It's an excellent, if pricey, accessory that lets you keep typing without having to worry about the keyboard's battery life or having to pair the keyboard to your iPad.

For smaller budgets, the Logitech Wired Keyboard (opens in new tab) is a solid option. It's a quality brand with a reputation for top-notch electronics. Clumsy types may prefer to go with something more protective, though, like the Zagg Rugged Messenger (opens in new tab) that provides both a protective cover and a full keyboard in one rugged case. No matter what you choose, you can't go wrong with this list.
