Apple retail stores now sell the iPad Air Typo keyboard. The accessory maker Typo Innovations officially announced the news on Wednesday. The device is also sold through Apple’s online store.
This announcement comes right after Typo agreed with Canadian-based BlackBerry on a settlement. The whole purpose of the settlement was for BlackBerry to keep Type from selling the device for iPhone products because of the similar design used for BlackBerry.
Typo Keyboard case for iPad
The Typo Keyboard case for iPad features built-in autocorrects technology. It also comes with an adjustable stand for a more comfortable experience. The official press release for the accessory highlighted specific features like an ultra thin keyboard measuring at an impressive 5.5 millimeters thick. It also comes with full-size keys for an experience similar to a laptop.
The keyboard connects to the iPad tablet with a magnet. Users have a choice to operate it connected or separately depending on their personal preferences. The new case also has a special proprietary friction hinge allowing it to adjust to almost any angle.
Although overall iPad sales have been falling for the past quarters, the device is still considered one of the top tablet computers on the market. The new Type Keyboard will only enhance that experience.

Consumer Product Safety Commission reports the tech giant received a total of eight complaints involving overheated speakers.
