That keyboard is compatible with Windows 7, 8, 10 or later. It’s not possible to use it with an iPad:

It doesn’t work with Apple devices. The keyboard connects to Windows computers only, so it’s not possible to use it.

Hello there,

I hope this is the right board for this, if not my apologies. I’ve been debating for a while on getting a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse for my iPad (6th gen), but since I had a desktop PC at the time I didn’t bother. About 2 months ago my desktop PC officially “kicked the bucket” so I have been using my iPad a lot more. Problem is I’m clueless on Bluetooth or how to make it work. I have never used any equipment of any type that used Bluetooth so I’m completely clueless.

Do I need any special software, or equipment of any type to get Bluetooth to work or if (want to make sure I have a understanding of how it works before purchasing anything) or do I just need the items (in this case being my iPad,a Bluetooth compatible keyboard and mouse) and I’m good to go?

Thanks so much for any help!

Not BT, but…..I use a Magic keyboard and a gen2 iPad Pro,and it’s awe!the keyboard clings tenaciously to the iPad with magnets,charges via contact points,and has a usb-c port so i can plug accessories into the iPad that keyboard runs R300 for my 11”, which in retrospect is worth every freaking penny charged, its a real keyboard, with a scissor mechanism and a mm of key press travel. Even better? IT`S BACKLIT!!!! Beautiful little thing……it’s space grey,so those lt keys totally pop.I’m in love. L
