Now that you have purchased an iPad, are you looking for something Apple didn’t put into your package? Yes! We are talking about iPad Stands. Although many would like to buy an Expensive stand for […]
The air holder is nice but it’s a bit industrial and for the price I feel like I should get a little more. For $100 you can get a stand that it beautiful, amplifies sound, charges the iPad while it’s docked and is fully adjustable.

Finally, if you keep your iPhone in a battery case—most of which have a Micro-USB port on the bottom for charging and syncing—the HiRise Deluxe includes a matching Micro-USB cable. Swap that in place of the Lightning cable, and you can dock your battery-case-equipped iPhone. The HiRise Deluxe is the most versatile and most thoughtfully designed dock you can find.
This is pretty cool for a small business or mobile business that has to go sell things at events and such. The stand lets you connect cash registers, barcode scanners, receipt printers, and any other similar device that will work over USB.
We’ve tested a number of keyboard cases for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and Apple’s Smart Keyboard is our pick for the same reason we like it for the other two iPad Pro It’s slim, light, and easy to put on and take off, and it offers a good typing experience. We’ve also got a rugged pick for the 10.5-inch Pro, Zagg’s Rugged Messenger, if you need more protection.
Users report that tablets sit fine in landscape, which is where most of us will use it, but portrait mode is too top-heavy. Which means you can’t make use of the charger cable punch out. There are also complaints of bad build-quality.
The Apple one is more of a tabletop “lectern” stand. Ours is a lap stand with adjustable angles, and a larger angle. Just as importantly, the Apple stand only works as an angled stand in landscape mode– ours works at the same angles in either orientation.
Kavaj “Hamburg” iPad Air 2 Premium Leather Case. Thin, soft, elegant portfolio-style case made of 100% genuine leather. It has a closure strap and pen loop on the side. The stylus doubles as an ink pen – it’s included in the package. There are interior pockets for business cards and other essentials.
I like that the DraftTable is adjustable, and really steady under most conditions. I only have one nitpick about the legs, which is that they could have been made out of metal as the main body, and I personally would have been fine with the added weight just to know that it would be rock solid. They are still a sturdy plastic, so I’m not that bummed about that.
This tablet stand is made from aluminum for durability. The design is adapted to home and professional use. This stand will hold your tablet so you can work, browse the web or watch videos. You will find that the holder is designed to be sturdy and stable. This is a great option if you are looking for a durable and reliable product. You can use the swivel connection to rotate your tablet to change the viewing angle. This is a very affordable product and overall a good value for the price.
This tablet floor stand is ideal for any shop or tradeshow. The white kiosk holds a variety of iPads and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1” & Tab 4 10.1″. Adjust the enclosure of the floor stand for landscape or portrait orientation. A hands free display is user friendly for shoppers or tradeshow guests that may be carrying other items. To charge the iPad in the floor stand simply feed the cable through the kiosk tube and out the base. The enclosure holds the iPad with foam supports for device placement and security. Adjust the hands free display to convert to a tabletop presentation by screwing the small curved pole to the base and removing the straight one.
You won’t find nearly as many options for stand-alone AirPlay receivers. Of the handful we tested, the best is the one that Apple makes: the AirPort Express. Even though it’s designed as a Wi-Fi access point and router, you can also use it to extend your current Wi-Fi network (Apple-based or otherwise), as well as to add AirPlay to an existing speaker system or stereo. The Express can connect via Ethernet to any network, or as a wireless extension when you use it with 2007 and later Apple routers, including other AirPort Express routers.
If you need something that keeps your iPad extra safe, Zagg’s Rugged Book for 9.7-inch iPad Pro has long been a niche favorite around the Wirecutter offices. (Over the years we’ve used similar versions for the iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, and the three previous iPad mini models.) It offers great protection and a good keyboard in a versatile package—albeit a package that’s thick and heavy. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro version is just under an inch thick when closed for travel and weighs about 2.6 pounds with an iPad inside. If you’re looking for slim and light, the Rugged Book isn’t for you, but if you’re willing to put up with this weight and bulk, you get an exceptionally durable and protective keyboard case that’s great for families with kids, for classroom use, or for working in rough environments.
Do note that the Create isn’t as light and minimal as Apple’s offering. Logi’s Create keyboard case is noticeably heavier than Apple’s Smart Keyboard and does add extra bulk to the iPad Pro. The Create keyboard case is available in black, purple, red and blue for $150.
Apple’s MFi process guarantees that all certified controllers have the same game compatibility, the same capabilities, and roughly the same control layout, so you won’t find many functional differences between these models and any other MFi controller. (Technically, controllers can have one of two possible button layouts, Standard or Extended, but most recent controllers use the latter.) If you’re not wild about paying $50 to $60, MFi controller deals seem to pop up regularly online. With some patience, or the willingness to pick up a refurbished unit, you can get an MFi controller for around $40. —Eli Hodapp, TouchArcade.com; Dan Frakes
Works with any tablet thinner than 18 mm, including the iPad, iPad 2, 3 & 4, the iPad Mini, Mini 2, & Mini 3, iPad Air and Air 2, Samsung Galaxy Tabs, Nexus 7 & 10, Dell Venue 8 PRO, Microsoft Surface RT, Surface 2, & Surface Pro 3, LG G Pads, Acer Iconia tabs, Blackberry Playbook, Samsung Galaxy Notes, Barnes and Nobles Nook tablets, HP Touchpads, HP 8, ASUS Tranformer EEE Pad, ASUS Transformer Prime, Toshiba Encores, Sony Experia Tablet S & Z, and many more.
Anyway, this very sensible looking aluminum stand comes in either silver or black. It isn’t all in one solid piece that’s been bent into shape – oh no, it has clever hinge bits, which is why it costs a buck or two more than some of the other stands which one person hilariously described as “Made by Orcs”.
When browsing our wired recommendations, you’ll want to be on the lookout for models with a three-button inline remote module with a microphone—such models are fully compatible with the specially designed headphone jack on Apple devices, so you can control music playback (play/pause, skip forward, skip back), adjust volume up and down, use the headphones for phone calls, and even give Siri voice commands. (Apple’s Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus also supports these features.) Most Bluetooth headphones have similar controls on the headphones themselves.
The Mark’s triangular anodized body fits in your hand as perfectly as a grade-school pencil, and it writes smoothly on the iPad’s screen without offering too much or too little resistance. As cartoonist and designer Rich Stevens told us, “For the cost of a pizza, it’s definitely worth doing some drawing with it.” The Mark’s balance in the hand is impeccable, and the stylus really proved itself during our speed and precision tests: The weight of its body is nicely distributed, so you can hold it like a normal pencil and avoid rubbing your palm on the screen.
The Pro is another $30 for an additional 4200mAh. It works well (we’ve tested it), but that’s about enough to charge an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus once with a bit left over. If you really like the Pod, you might consider instead spending the additional $30 on our favorite portable travel battery, which will give you four times as much juice. It’s a bit more to pack, but that combination will let you charge your phone and watch for several days: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-usb-battery-packs/#bagpick
The open design also allows easy access to all ports: headphone, charging, volume, orientation lock (soon to become a useless mute button). If you’re just going to mount an iPad and no books, you don’t need to install any of the book holding components.
It is highly advised that you restrict the amount of time spent on your electronic device. If you are required to use the device for extended periods, it is recommended that you take breaks. The ideal breaks would be a three-minute break for every 15 to 20 minutes when using a device. This break should involve changing your position or moving around.
FYY Functional Series iPad Mini Case. If you are looking for a unique artwork on a proven case design, you should check out the cases from the Functional Series by FYY. The case has a hand strap for one-handed reading, a large internal pocket, a card slot, and supports auto wake/sleep function.
The masonite is the standard medium-stiffness fiberboard, about 1/8″ thick, the kind you find at the hardware store. You can score it with a utility knife and ruler, and then snap it to size. It’s strong enough to do the job but not overly rigid.
The selection of keyboard cases for the various iPad Pro models—especially the 10.5-inch Pro, because it’s so new—is surprisingly thin, so we tested every promising option we could find. We skipped models that have terrible reviews, that don’t fulfill enough of our criteria (below), or that come from no-name companies that either don’t have an easy-to-contact support department or simply seem so sketchy that we wouldn’t spend our own money on their products. (Unfortunately, this process eliminates many of the budget-priced models—to some extent, you get what you pay for with iPad keyboards.)
If you need more power, the Jackery Bolt is our pick for everyday use, offering more power in a larger but still relatively small package. It can charge most smartphones twice over from an integrated Micro-USB cable, an integrated Lightning-connector cable, or a standard USB port. If you want to be able to refill a phone completely after a busy day and need something slimmer than the Bolt, get our runner-up pick, the EasyAcc 6000mAh Ultra Slim Power Bank.
If you’re looking to protect an iPad mini 4 from dings and scratches, we recommend Khomo’s Dual Case. Usually you can find it for $15 or less, and it offers an adequate amount of protection in 16 color combinations. Most of the iPad mini 4 cases we’ve found so far are cheap, but this one is the best of them, with a cover that stays in place even when you flip the case upside down, plus tightly tailored openings for the ports and buttons as well as a sound-boost feature that adds a few decibels to the volume output. —NG
The pattern, sketched out above, shows the three main segments of the stand– the iPad holding Front Panel, the back (vertical) panel, and the bottom (base) panel. It also shows the part of the fabric that’s bent over to cover the reverse sides of those panels, as well as the seam allowances.
