. The mac keyboard is waiting for you to do so. Below are a few articles I found interesting and useful on using an Apple keyboard with your iPad. Hi everyone -- Just wanted to confirm that these instructions actually do work. Your iPad should now be connected to the iPad.
Fortunately, a workaround is available, if you're patient. These are mentioned in the instructions, but they bear repeating. This might be because I recently ran a batch of Windows system updates. Can't believe it actually worked! I struggled to pair a 2000 vintage Apple Bluetooth Keyboard to a brand new iPad 9. On the point of buying a new wireless keyboard when I came across this article. Two things for people to know.
Pair keyboard again Unpair and re-pair the keyboard, will probably take 20 more attempts. Pairing the keyboard is very trial and error. Every post says it worked. I dont know what else will work. This can make the activity of pairing the keyboard to the intended device a bit frustrating. There is a downside to this, but I found it interesting nonetheless. Thanks a lot for all theses anwsers! If the bluetooth keyboard was last connected to another device that is within range and turned on, the normal steps to pair a bluetooth keyboard to an iPad will typically not work.
In my instance, it did not throw any driver errors once connected. The driver situation with Apple Bluetooth wireless keyboards and Windows 10 is horrible, even with the latest BootCamp drivers. The problem is because the keyboard immediately exits pairing mode as it connects to the other, unintended device. Verify keyboard connectivity Once the keyboard has paired, after uninstalling the keyboard driver, you can check whether the keyboard is finally fully connected, by pressing the Command Start button, etc. Finally, once the keyboard does pair, Windows will complain with a status Driver error.
You can now stop pressing the power button on the keyboard. Thank you for good advice and instructions! At first, I was trying 12345678, but then I shortened it to a six digit number. Can I add my appreciation? But I searched the Internet for a way to pair the two, and found this set of instructions — which even though they took very long to take affect, worked finally — and my new iPad is now a complete writing tool! Then, suddenly, it will start to behave. Be prepared for it not to connect, but don't give up. . . .
