7 Seriously Sweet Power Ups For Your iPad

1.This insanely great keyboard cover turns an iPad into a touchscreen MacBook Pro.

Brydge’s keyboard is the iPad’s missing half. All you’ve got to is slide your iPad into the the hinge and bam, you’ve got an iPad that looks like a MacBook Pro. It’s made out of aluminum, pairs with bluetooth and has an array of iPad specific shortcut keys. It’s also got a comfortable palm rest and has 180 degrees of movement. If you get the Brydge Pro, it even comes with a bonus magnetic cover and charges with USB-C.

Get it from Amazon or Brydge’s website for $99+.

2.A small but mighty adapter you can use to turn one plug into six.

If you really want to turn the iPad Pro into the ultimate laptop replacement, you need a USB-C hub. With HyperDrive’s specially designed iPad hub, you can connect audio devices, headphones, chargers, sd cards, and to hdmi for display mirroring. It is a must-have accessory and it will be even more useful with iPadOS, once that launches in the Fall.

Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

3.An Apple Pencil, because if you’re an iPad owner you’re totally missing out.

The Apple Pencil is an iPad’s best friend, especially if you have the latest iPad Pro. It seamlessly clicks to the side, so it’s always with you. Since the newer iPads are effectively just sheets of glass, it can really feel great to take notes with the pencil and mark up documents. You can check if your iPad is compatible here.

Get it from Amazon for $129.99 (or the first generation for $94.99).

4.A cable that’ll turn an iPad Pro into a battery pack for iPhones and iPods.

Since the newer iPad Pro models have USB-C ports, you can connect a USB-C to lightning cable and charge your iPhone. With this cable you can effectively turn your iPad Pro into a giant battery pack with a touchscreen.

Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in 1m or 2m).

5.An external monitor to take your screen size to the next level.

This Acer display is a killer deal. At just $89.99 you can pick up this 21.5 inch screen at Amazon. All you’ve got to do is connect an HDMI cable to the display and then to an adapter (like the HyperDrive one above or this Apple one) on your iPad Pro. If you have an iPad with a lightning connector, you’ll need this adapter instead.

Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in two styles).

And if you don’t already have an HDMI cable you can get one from Amazon for $8.99.

6.A stand you can combine with Apple’s Magic Keyboard makes for an ultimate on-the-go productivity duo.

The Canopy from Studio Neat is both a case for your Apple Magic Keyboard and a stand for your iPad. The Canopy case is the best option for anyone who already owns an Apple Magic Keyboard.

Get it from Amazon for $40.

And if you don’t already have an Apple Magic Keyboard, you can get one from Amazon for $88.98.

7.A Microsoft iPad mouse that, believe it or not, you’ll find to be THE BEST one on the market.

With iPadOS, you’ll finally be able to use a mouse with your iPad. I’ve tried a bunch of different mice and Microsoft’s Surface Arc Mouse is by far the best option. It folds flat so you can throw it in a bag and has excellent clicky buttons.

Get it from Amazon for $62.35 (available in four colors).

To get the most out of these accessories, you’ll need iPadOS. You can download it now in the form of a public beta, but be warned, it’s buggy. If you want to wait for the risk free version, hold off until the Fall.
