The Best iPad Keyboards in Singapore 2021

Published October 2021
by Linus Tan

In the past, the use of tablets was often seen as a splurge, as most had no need for a tablet if you had a laptop. However, now tablets are seen as an indispensable part of our everyday lives - from using them as second monitors, notebook alternatives, or simply just to play games, tablets have become almost a norm in our everyday lives. In particular, the iPad has become an exceedingly popular choice amongst tablet users. 

However, even for tablet users, we cannot stray from the utility of having an external keyboard to type with. Hence, we at Synced have put together a list of the best iPad keyboards that can be used for a seamless typing experience. 

Best Overall: Apple Magic Keyboard

Best for Budget: Logitech Slim Folio Pro

Best Value-for-Money: Brydge 10.2 Max+

Best Mechanical Keyboard: Keychron K3

Firstly, no list of iPad keyboards would be complete without mention of the Apple Magic Keyboard. Made by the same creators of the iPad, the Apple Magic Keyboard is naturally the best option for an iPad keyboard.

Apple has fully decked out the Magic Keyboard with as many functions as possible - including making it as immersive an experience possible. For instance, the Magic Keyboard can be attached in such a manner that allows your whole set-up to be closed like a regular clamshell laptop, allowing you to have the experience of both a tablet and a laptop. Furthermore, the Magic Keyboard is designed such that your screen is floating, creating a chic overall aesthetic. With a tilt range of 90 to 130 degrees, you can easily move your screen closer to your face, both to allow you to look at your work from a better angle and also to make use of the touchscreen easily. Despite this, the Magic Keyboard remains extremely stable, and will not topple on your lap.

Another cool feature of the Apple Magic Keyboard is its excellent trackpad. Why do we say this? Well, this is because, unlike most tablet keyboard trackpads, the Magic Keyboard's trackpad can be tapped anywhere, not just at the bottom. Even so, the trackpad never compromises on quality and remains smooth and accurate. Furthermore, the backlight of the Magic Keyboard's keys adapt to your lighting and do not require you to manually adjust them should they be too bright or too dim. 

However, naturally, there are some areas of improvement. For instance, the Magic Keyboard does not have a row of keys designed specifically for functions such as volume or brightness, and the need to make manual adjustments may prove annoying to some. Additionally, the Magic Keyboard definitely tends to the heavier side, which may not contribute to as pleasant a carrying experience as one would like. Nevertheless, this also ensures that the Apple Magic Keyboard is extremely durable. 

For anyone who uses an iPad and needs a keyboard, the Apple Magic Keyboard is definitely your number one go-to choice. If this interests you, you can shop the Apple Magic Keyboard here

Best for Budget: Logitech Slim Folio Pro

Logitech is one of the biggest names out there, and when it comes to iPad keyboards, it continues to put up a splendid performance. 

Despite its relative affordability, the Logitech Slim Folio Pro offers a bevvy of functions. Firstly, build-wise, the Logitech Slim Folio Pro is extremely solid, with rubber bumpers that absorb shock should you accidentally drop your iPad. Furthermore, even with how thick the Slim Folio Pro is, Logitech goes a step further by adding a latch to keep your set-up closed, and even has a second layer that can be folded to be used as a stand. Nifty, right? All in all, with the Slim Folio Pro, you will never have to worry about damaging your precious cargo!

In terms of functions, the Logitech Slim Folio Pro performs pretty reliably. It has 78 keys, and an 18mm key pitch, similar to Apple's Smart Keyboard. Although you do get more keys, this means that each key is slightly smaller than its equivalent on the Apple Magic Keyboard. However, unlike the Magic Keyboard, it has a row of keys for functions, which even includes a search key. This greatly adds to the degree of convenience experienced by the user. Furthermore, the keys have a good tactile feel and are comfortable to press down. However, while the Logitech Slim Folio Pro offers two degrees of brightness for their backlight, the quality of the backlight definitely pales in comparison to the Magic Keyboard. Nevertheless, if you are not particularly picky about or sensitive towards the quality of your backlight, this is a minor gripe.

For its price, the Logitech Slim Folio Pro offers a reliable alternative to the Apple Magic Keyboard and is definitely an option worth considering. If this piques your interest, shop the Logitech Slim Folio Pro here

Best Value-for-Money: Brydge 10.2 Max+

Brydge 10.2 Max+

When it comes to value-for-money, Brydge cannot be beaten. With a good build, a good range of functions, and a decent price point to boot, the Brydge 10.2 Max+ is one of the most value-for-money iPad keyboards you can consider investing in. 

Although the Brydge 10.2 Max+ is made of plastic, it does not compromise on the degree of protection offered, and still shields your iPad well from impact. Furthermore, this decreases the weight of your set-up, allowing you to carry it around easily. 

It is ridiculously to attach your iPad to the Brydge 10.2 Max+. The 10.2 Max+ makes use of magnetic hinges to hold your iPad in place, and your tablet can be easily inserted and removed simply by sliding it in and out. Furthermore, Brydge has also taken into account those who use their iPads more frequently for creative purposes and have included an elastic holder that can be used to store your Apple Pencil. No more frantic scrambling wondering where your precious Apple Pencil has rolled to!

Brydge 10.2 Max+

The Brydge 10.2 Max+ also has a relatively large touchpad, allowing for much more freedom of movement. Users have also reported that the touchpad is comfortable to the touch, and also accounts for palm rejection. Furthermore, the keyboard is also comfortable to press, though the keys are marginally more cramped than that of other tablet keyboards.

A final cool feature of the Brydge 10.2 Max+ would be its antimicrobial coating - with how many places we bring our tablets to, and the amount of bacteria it comes into contact with, this coating is especially helpful in preventing unwanted diseases. 

All in all, for its price, the Brydge 10.2 Max+ is a good, quality iPad keyboard that definitely makes the most out of your penny. If this interests you, shop the Brydge 10.2 Max+ here

Best Mechanical Keyboard: Keychron K3

Finally, when we talk about keyboards, we inevitably come to the discussion of mechanical keyboards. While regular iPad keyboards are generally all right to the touch, some users may prefer the tactile aspect of a mechanical keyboard. This is where the Keychron K3 comes in.

The Keychron K3 has lesser keys than a regular full-size keyboard, but it still has arrow keys and a function row, which allows you to easily toggle your brightness and volume control for instance. For most users, this is a comfortable size, especially if you need to bring your keyboard around with your iPad.

A cool feature of the Keychron K3 is that it's hot-swappable - you can easily swap out your optical switches to suit your needs without having to deal with any of the finicky work like soldering. Depending on whether you prefer your keyboard to be softer or more tactile, you can choose linear, tactile or clicky switches. Keychain offers a good range of switches that are said to be more responsive and durable than Gateron switches, which are also compatible with the K3. Furthermore, the Keychron K3's keycaps have a nice curve to fit your fingers, allowing for a more comfortable typing experience. In addition, as Keychron offers both white and RGB backlighting, the keycaps are well-constructed enough to allow the light to shine through without compromising on quality. 

Additionally, the angle of your Keychron K3 is easily adjustable with a pair of "feet" that can be flipped out or placed back in when needed. If you love the feeling of mechanical keyboards, the Keychron K3 is the one for you.
