If you are looking for an iPad Air keyboard, you have a number of options. You can opt for a case with magnets to hold the keyboard in place, such as the Logitech Slim Folio. There are also folio iPad cases that feature a slot for Apple’s Magic Pencil. The Apple Smart Connector keyboard also works with any Bluetooth device. The keyboard is removable, but it feels flimsy when used on its own.
