The iPad Pro range has been out for a while, and the accessory manufacturers have been busy designing an array of keyboards that are compatible with Apple’s tablets. A touchscreen keyboard just isn’t the same as a traditional one. We have keyboards for the iPad Pro that don’t double as protective cases, but we also have some options that add a little protection to your investment.

Luckily, many of the cases on our list will make you feel like you’re using a touchscreen MacBook, especially given their laptop-esque designs. They also come at varying price points, meaning you don’t need to spend a lot to net a physical keyboard. Below, you will find our picks for the best iPad Pro keyboard cases, regardless of which model you opted for. Also, if you’re looking for content for your new tablet, be sure to check out our picks for the best iPad Pro games and our favorite drawing apps for the iPad Pro.

Keyboards for the iPad Pro 10.5

Apple Smart Keyboard ($159)

Best iPad Pro keyboard cases
The first keyboard on our radar is, of course, Apple’s Smart Keyboard. This one is similar to the 9.7-inch smart keyboard, with the same shallow key travel and overall build quality. This iPad Pro keyboard case is a one-sided affair. It doesn’t cover your entire iPad like other keyboard cases, but it does make use of the Smart Connector, meaning you don’t need to pair it via Bluetooth. Like many Apple-branded products, however, this keyboard is pricey, but if you want ultimate compatibility and something that was built by Apple, then this should be your first choice.

Logitech Slim Combo ($130-$150)

Best iPad Pro keyboard cases
The new Logitech Slim Combo is, in some ways, what we wanted from Apple’s Smart Keyboard. This keyboard connects via the Smart Connector, just like Apple’s Smart Keyboard, so it requires no pairing. Physically, however, Logitech’s offering provides full-body protection. It also has a built-in holder for your Apple Pencil and is spill-resistant and easy to clean. The case is a good choice if you want to ensure your iPad is protected, even if you need to detach the keyboard.

KuGi Keyboard Case ($31)

Best iPad Pro keyboard cases
The aptly titled KuGi Keyboard Case is a good choice for those who don’t want to spend a lot of money on a keyboard that works with their tablet’s Smart Connector. This keyboard has a 250mAh battery, which should allow for about 90 hours of continuous use. When you run out of juice, the keyboard is rechargeable via the Micro USB connector. It’s thin, at only 1.5-millimeters thick, and weighs just over 14 ounces. The case also has a magnetic buckle that secures it when closed and a place to store your Apple Pencil. There are precise cutouts for your tablet’s camera and ports, too, so they are more easily accessible. It currently comes in a variety of colors, including gold and rose gold, to match your iPad.

IVSO Keyboard Case ($32)

Best iPad Pro keyboard cases
Here is an affordable keyboard case made from polyurethane leather, with a microfiber interior that protects your iPad. What makes this option stand out is that the keyboard is held in place via magnets. You can slide the keyboard out and detach it from the case, allowing for a more comfortable typing position without requiring you to remove the case. You can also charge the keyboard using a Micro USB cable, which takes around three hours. Once charged, you can use the keyboard for an estimated 60 hours. It comes in an array of colors as well, including black, white, blue, gold, rose gold, and purple.

MoKo Keyboard Case ($25)

Best iPad Pro keyboard cases

This keyboard focuses on giving you a great tactile typing experience with scissor switches for the keys. Like the aforementioned IVSO keyboard, the MoKo Keyboard Case is also removable, so there is no need to take off the case if you need to adjust the keyboard position. The leather is, of course, synthetic, but you can expect that at this price point. The inside lining is soft, but the rear exterior is tough, helping you to you to protect your tablet from unexpected drops. If you’re going to do a lot of typing on your iPad, then a quality tactile keyboard is a must, one that will allow for a fast and accurate typing experience.
