    I was just curious if the Bluetooth apple keyboard will work with the iPad? Or do you have to buy a new keyboard? Thanks to all that reply. Have a great new year !

    Yes I have successfully used the keyboard with my iPad. With that said, I find it too cumbersome to take both with me. If you want a device that is small and has a keyboard you are better off with the 11 inch MBA.

    Settings > General > Bluetooth. Search for devices and then it will ask you to type in a passcode on the keyboard to finish the linking.
