Step 1: Keyboards Compatible With iPad:
Before you start, make sure your keyboard is compatible with your iPad. Most Bluetooth keyboards should work fine with the iPad, but if you’re not sure, check the manufacturer’s website or user manual.
Step 2: Turn On Your iPad Keyboard:
Turn on your Bluetooth keyboard and make sure it’s in pairing mode. The method for doing this will vary depending on the keyboard, so consult the manufacturer’s instructions. Usually, it involves holding the “FN + P” keys as in all the Macally Bluetooth keyboards.
Step 3: Update Your iPad Settings
Go to your iPad’s settings
On your iPad, go to “Settings” and then “Bluetooth.” Make sure Bluetooth is turned on.
Again, make sure your keyboard is in pairing mode.
This is usually done by holding down a button(s) until a light starts flashing.

On some keyboards, you might be prompted to enter a pairing code on the iPad. This code will be displayed on the iPad’s screen. (note: Macally keyboards you shouldn’t have to). Then, wait for the connection to be established. Your iPad and keyboard should now be connected. You can start using your keyboard to type on your iPad.
Note: If you’re using an Apple Keyboard or an iPad Keyboard Case, the process may be slightly different. In these cases, you can simply connect the keyboard to your iPad using the Smart Connector.
Having Issues? Check for Updates
You can check if your iPad has an update by going to your settings and then “general.” Here, your iPad will check if there is an update. Also, make sure your iPad and keyboard both are charged or have battery life. If your keyboard is still not showing, then it’s either not compatible or the pair mode is not being activated correctly.
Connecting a keyboard to your iPad is a simple process that can make your device more versatile and easier to use. Whether you’re using a Bluetooth, wireless, or Apple keyboard, the steps are similar and straightforward. Just follow the instructions above, and you’ll be up and running in no time!
