I have been using my apple bluetooth keyboard with iOS 9 and really enjoying it.
Being able to command-tab is really helpful.

Does anyone know if there is a way to quit apps using the bluetooth keyboard? command-q doesn't work.

If there isnt a way, I think it would be a necessary addition for apple. While using command-tab, you end up having so many apps open and you have to slowly cycle through them to quit them all.

Other than that, does anyone else know any other unique features with the bluetooth keyboard?
It seems silly that the F3-F4 buttons, designed for mission control and expose on the mac, don't do anything for the iPad. You would think they would do something liek bring you to home, or enter the multitasking menu.

Only force quit misbehaving apps. You're wasting time and battery by constantly removing apps from the app switcher.

Sorry, I know that's not what you asked for. For that answer, I'm useless.

Ya I know that force quitting isnt the most efficient use of the battery, but when you command-tab, you literally have a thousand apps pile up if you don't. So gets in the way.
Either way a minor gripe.
