iPad Accessories

Tablets, and the iPad specifically, can be used in plenty of different ways. While some users carry them around as a method of entertainment, many others are using the devices as productivity tools. Modus is looking to take that even further with the introduction of Modus III, a workstation designed to make the iPad feel more like a computer in terms of functionality. Read More

Belkin today announced a new, ultra-thin keyboard case for the iPad Air. Measuring under 4 mm (0.16 in) thick, the Qode Thin Type Keyboard is aimed at extending the functionality of the tablet, while maintaining the convenience of its lightweight design. Read More

Mounts for iPad are thick on the ground, but the creators of MagBak are looking to stand out from the crowd with a slimmed down approach to attaching the tablet to any surface that also keeps the Smart Cover closed and provides a convenient grip. Read More

The iPad is a great device, but it's the accessories that maximize its usefulness. Keyboards like Elecom's butterfly keyboard for iPad, and ultra-high capacity batteries are just a couple of examples. Now, a new product called the DOCKr looks to combine six different iPad accessories into one do-it-all device. Read More
The success of the iPad suggests that it already functions rather well as a device for consuming movies and music, in addition to playing games. That said, even the most enthusiastic Apple fan would be hard-pressed to argue that the tablet’s speakers offer optimum fidelity. This is where ORA steps in, providing a protective case and stand for the iPad, which also contains eight speakers to push out the tablet’s audio. Read More
The iPad has carved out quite a reputation as a solid platform for video games, particularly racing games, thanks to its built-in accelerometers. But while using the whole tablet as a steering wheel is handy, holding a thin rectangle made of plastic and glass just doesn't have the same feel as an actual arcade wheel. Soon though, iPad owners will be able to pick up a steering wheel that fits an iPad in the center and attaches to most surfaces. Once an iPad is placed inside, the KOLOS becomes a racing wheel and game console in one. Read More
A few years back Joby gave boring old camera tripods a much-needed kick up the rear when stiff, straight, dull-but-dependable legs were replaced with bendable knobbly goodness in the shape of the Gorillapod. Versatility and adaptability are central to its success, attributes that make the tablift iPad stand from Santa Monica's C. Scott Blevins a similarly attractive proposition. While there are vast numbers of tablet stands already available, tablift can provide the hands-free stability others may fail to offer when used on uneven or somewhat changeable surfaces like a sofa, comfy chair or bed.

The iPad has been the top selling tablet in the world since its launch, and on the heels of Apple's success, thousands of accessory makers snapped into action, releasing an endless flow of extras for the iPad. Among the most popular accessories are cases and keyboards, and we've seen several companies combine these two needs, such as the Logitech iPad keyboard, or the Brydge keyboard case. In such a crowded market, standing out is important, and the recently launched Touchtype case does so by making use of a full size physical keyboard. Read More
Shown this week at CTIA in New Orleans, the Moshi iGlaze with VersaCover is a new origami-style iPad case that combines the simplicity of an open and closed magnetic cover with an artful folding function that lets you prop up the tablet to view what’s on screen. Read More
Last April, Logitech partnered with ZAGG to release a rather smart iPad case with built-in physical keyboard. The company has now announced a new book-style case for Apple's tablet where the power for the included Bluetooth keyboard comes from batteries juiced up by built-in photovoltaic panels. The Solar Keyboard Folio won't help an iPad last any longer, though. Fortunately, Wireless NRG has developed a tough extended battery case for the iPad that also packs light-soaking cells on its flap that can keep the protected tablet going for up to ten days. The panels on both cases don't just rely on direct sunlight for power, as they can also take advantage of indoor light too. Read More
