If you have an iPad, chances are you've considered an external keyboard. The iPad has the touchscreen keyboard, but it can feel a bit awkward if you are trying to type anything longer than a sentence or two.
There are two options for a keyboard: the iPad keyboard with the charging dock, and an Apple wireless keyboard. Our favorite is the Wireless keyboard simply because it can be used with any Bluetooth-enabled Mac. (So your keyboard can pretty much be used with all your current Macs when it's not being an iPad keyboard).
Of course the wireless keyboard isn't simply plug-n-play. It's Bluetooth, so devices have to be paired. So here's a quick tip for iPad, iPhone and iPod users (The keyboard works with iOS devices on 4.0 and above)
1) Go to Settings
4) Toggle Bluetooth On
5) Make sure your keyboard is powered on. It should pop up as "Not Connected"
6) Hit connect on the iPad.
7) The devices will pair and you should get a prompt that asks you to type out the sequence of letters and numbers onscreen. Type those in as shown.
8) You should now by able to type on your iPad using your wireless keyboard.
