The ZAGG Cover is the most versatile Bluetooth® keyboard on the market. It features a unique hinge design that lets you position your screen at virtually any viewing angle. A clever feature lets you reverse your screen converting the Cover into a convenient, one-piece reader or movie screen. When you’re ready to type again, simply flip your screen around and enjoy backlit, island-style keys. A powerful battery keeps the Cover going for up to three months of normal use before it needs to be charged*.

*Regular use of two hours per day. Using the backlit feature will impact battery life and may require more frequent charging.

More Angles

Featuring a unique hinge design that adjusts through 135°, the Cover holds your iPad at whatever viewing angle is best for you, just like a laptop. No other Bluetooth® keyboard does that.

More Space

The Cover is 14% thinner than all other Bluetooth keyboards. Measuring only 6.35mm, that’s barely more than a quarter inch, it will do more for your Air, in less space. And while it's thinner than the competition, it's still able to provide 30% more typing space.

More Colors

With backlit keys that can be customized in an array of colors and brightness, the Cover makes typing in low-light situations a breeze. Plus, you get to customize your typing experience.

More Diverse

Ready to type? The Cover makes typing comfortable and easy. Ready to read, or watch a movie? The Cover also makes those activities easy. It’s the only keyboard available that has a one-of-a-kind reading mode.
