Here’s something pretty cool: a magnetic premium keyboard case for the iPad Air 2. It’s called the Zagg Rugged Book Magnetic Keyboard Case, and it’s quite a unique proposition, providing both productivity gains and impressive protection. Let’s take a closer look.
We’ll start with the Rugged Book’s protective potential. This is provided by a combination of a tough polycarbonate shell and a soft silicone cover, working together to deaden impacts, block scratches and generally protect your iPad Air 2. The significant thickness of each layer means your Air 2 will become more bulky, but it also ensures that you’ll get far better protection than you would from a thinner case.
The next part of the equation is the keyboard, which uses backlit keys to allow use at all times of day. The keys feel tactile and responsive under your fingers, with sufficient key travel and key spacing to allow you to write quickly and accurately. The feel is very similar to a high-end laptop keyboard, and you’ll definitely notice a boost in productivity when you’re typing on this instead of the software keyboard. That boost will be a long-lasting one too, thanks to an epic battery life of over two years between recharges.
The overall effect is that of an armoured ultra-rugged laptop, with the Rugged Book propping up the display at a convenient angle when the Air 2 is in use, and then folding together to protect the screen when you’re on the move. An incredible magnetic hinge ensures that you can keep your Air 2 at a convenient angle at all times, and that the case closes securely too. As the connection is magnetic, you can also separate the two pieces quickly and easily when needed.
The Zagg Rugged Book Keyboard Case really is something, huh? For more information or to place your pre-order of this impressive iPad Air 2 case, please check out the product page linked below.

Apple are rumoured to be working on a 12-inch iPad Pro, designed to be the ultimate productivity tablet. That’s not available yet though, so for the moment the best you can get is the iPad Air 2 with some suitable accessories. That’s why today we’re going to look at just that – some of the best productivity accessories for the iPad Air 2. Let’s go!
A good stylus is important for scribbling notes and sketches, but why get just a stylus? This HexStyli from Olixar combines a stylus with five other functions: a pen, two screwdrivers, a ruler and a spirit level. It’s a handy tool to keep in your pocket or bag, and at such a low price it’s an easy sell.
Sometimes the difference between getting work done and getting annoyed is a good pair of headphones. These in-ear headphones provide excellent noise cancellation, allowing you to concentrate on the work at hand, even in crowded or noisy environments. They’re wireless too, so you can swap quickly between your iPad and your mobile, and go without the annoyance of a cable. The BackBeat Go 2 also includes a microphone and in-line remote, so you can easily take calls on your mobile, Facetime or Skype.
A good tablet stand is invaluable, and this example from Olixar is one of the best available. The folding design makes it highly portable, while the metal design is both durable and stylish. Whether you’re at your desk or working on the train, you’ll be glad to have the Prop Stand.
You can also use a desk stand like this one in concert with software like Air Display, Splashtop XDisplay and iDisplay to turn your iPad into a secondary display for your Mac or Windows computer. This is a great way to keep your iPad useful when you reach the office and start using your laptop or desktop.
Having a portable charger is useful for recharging your gadgets on the go, but the iPad Air 2′s massive internal battery presents a problem: most portable chargers simply don’t have enough capacity to recharge the Air 2 fully, and don’t provide power fast enough to make recharging convenient. The enCharge solves both of these problems with a tremendous 15000mAh capacity, which allows two full recharges, and a rapid 2.1A charging rate, allowing full-speed charging. The impressive capacity of the enCharge also means that you can charge a second device – like a mobile phone – at the same time.
Typing on an iPad’s screen is okay, but if you’re writing for than a few sentences you’ll want something better. A laptop-style keyboard is ideal, offering real tactile response that makes it easy to write quickly and accurately. This keyboard case provides just that, with a comfortable full-size keyboard tucked inside a convenient stand Air 2 case. Another bonus is that when you’re using a Bluetooth keyboard like this, the on-screen keyboard doesn’t appear and you have much more screen space to use. In combination with a slick executive look, that makes the Kensington KeyFolio the ultimate productivity accessory for the iPad Air 2.

The OtterBox Defender is one of the most well-respected cases on the planet, capable of protecting smartphones and tablets alike with a proven tri-layer design. This week, we’re adding the OtterBox Defender for a new device: the iPad Air 2. If you’re looking for a tough iPad Air 2 case, then the Defender should be near the top of your list. Here’s why.
Three layers of protection
It all starts with the OtterBox Defender’s unique design. The case is constructed from three layers: a strong polycarbonate inner shell which provides rigidity, a silicone skin that absorbs impacts and a thermal-formed sheet that protects the screen.
The case also includes silicone port plugs, which ensure that dirt and dust doesn’t accumulate inside your Lightning or headphone ports.
Between these three layers, you’ll find an impressively tough package that’s able to shrug off minor knocks and impacts with ease. Even from big drops, your iPad will have a much better chance of surviving than it would naked or in a standard one-layer case.
Media stand functionality
Each Defender case comes with a detachable plastic holder that serves as extra protection and also functions as a multi-angle media stand. That’s brilliant for watching videos or writing on your iPad, whether you’re placing your iPad on a desk or a tiny airplane tray table.
The OtterBox Defender is available for pre-order now. We are offering two models for the iPad Air 2, in black and glacier. To place your pre-order or see more information, please visit the product page linked below:

5. Kensington KeyFolio Thin X2 Keyboard Case - Black
We begin with a stylish iPad Air 2 keyboard case, which unlocks the incredible productivity potential of the iPad Air 2. The Kensington KeyFolio provides tactile, great-feeling laptop-style keys that make typing up emails and writing documents a cinch. Whether you’re taking notes in class or just want to get some work on the train, you’ll find the KeyFolio a constant companion.
4. Speck StyleFolio Case - Black
The Speck StyleFolio is our second case, offering smooth styling that cloaks your iPad in sophistication. The StyleFolio is made from high quality vegan leather to provide good protection without taking up lots of space. The case includes full screen protection and a multi-angle viewing stand, making it easy to type or watch videos on the iPad Air 2′s tremendous screen.
3. UAG Scout Rugged Folio Case - Black, Red
If protecting your iPad Air 2 is your number one priority, then the rugged UAG Scout is a great choice. The case includes both impact and water resistance, keeping your iPad Air 2 in great shape throughout its life. The case is coated with a soft grip material that makes it easier to keep your iPad Air 2 firmly in your hands, while looking good in red or black colour choices. The case further includes over-sized buttons for easy accessibility and an adjustable viewing stand.
2. Encase Big Softy Child-Friendly Silicone Case - Pink, Blue
If you’re giving your iPad Air 2 to a child, then you should make sure that they can’t do any damage to it. The Encase Big Softy is just the thing then, cladding your iPad Air 2 in a bulky but highly protective silicone case that deadens impacts. The case is also bright and friendly, just the thing for a child.
We conclude with the Incipio Octane, a leather-style case available in three colours. The case has a stylish look, with a trim synthetic leather construction and shock absorbing Plextonium (not a real element, just a brand name for specialised polycarbonate). The Octane also includes a soft micro-fibre lining that carefully brushes your screen and prevents scratches, obviating the need for a dedicated iPad Air 2 screen protector. All in all, a strong case that looks great and provides everything you need to keep your Air 2 in good condition.
