My nRugged Book keyboard case for 9.7” iPad advertised that it had 7 backlit colors. Instruction booklet says it has 3 levels of brightness. None of the directions work. Only way to get the lights on is to hit the Power button. Then they go off in seconds

How do I "turn on" the backlit keyboard feature?

Asked by: KathrynH
Pressing the fn + Backlight Symbol once will turn on the backlights, pressing them again will turn off the backlights. NOTE: The backlights will automatically turn off after a couple seconds.

I am getting fairly confused on how turn change the backlight colors. I have searched it up a couple of times, and all I have heard was that it was fake. How do I change the colors.

Asked by: Sophia725
The Rugged Book does not have changing colors. The Folio keyboard does.
