Featured image for Best iPad Accessories for September 2023

The iPad is arguably the best tablet on the market, whether you’re an Android or iPhone user, it’s the best tablet. For Android users, it’s arguably the best since all of the Google apps are also available on it. And Android tablets kinda suck these days. Though Google is looking to change that.

But if you just bought a new iPad, you might be wondering what the best accessories are to buy for it. Luckily we have you covered there. We have rounded up the best accessories that you can buy. And most of these are available for all iPads. That includes the iPad, iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPad Pro.


Logitech Combo Touch

71dmlPk0IyS AC SL1500

Price: $190

Where to buy: Amazon

The Logitech Combo Touch is one of my favorite keyboards available for the iPad. And that’s because it is detachable. So you can detach the keyboard from the case on your iPad, and still use your iPad with the kickstand. Making it very versatile. It is not cheap, but it is cheaper than Apple’s options. So there’s that.

This keyboard is available for the iPad Pro in both 11 and 12.9-inch models. As well as the iPad Air 4th and 5th Gen models. It does work with the regular iPad, but not the redesigned 10th generation model, unfortunately.

Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)


Price: $249

Where to buy: Best Buy

If you don’t already own a pair of AirPods, you should buy a pair. They sound fantastic, and also work flawlessly (most of the time) with Apple products including the iPad.

These are the new second-generation AirPods Pro. Which offer up MagSafe charging among a few other things. MagSafe is really nice to have, as you can just put them down on a MagSafe charger and not worry about it sliding off. This mdoel also includes another pair of eartips, now offering XS, S, M and L.

AirPods Pro do offer up to 6 hours of continuous playback. And the case can charge them a few times. These also include personalized spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, as well as Dolby Atmos.

Native Union USB-C Braided Cable

81Z3NCbBLiL AC SL1500

Price: $35

Where to buy: Amazon

I know, I know, $35 is a lot for a USB-C cable. Especially when one comes with your iPad. But this cable is still great to pick up and have with you. That’s because it’s a longer cable, coming in at 8-foot long. It’s also branded and has a strap that can keep it together. This makes it great for taking on trips with you. Just toss it in your bag and you’re good to go.

Satechi Multi-Angle Foldable Tablet Stand

71EV1HkZ L AC SL1500

Price: $39

Where to buy: Amazon

This is an accessory that everyone should have. It’s an adjustable metal stand for the iPad. And it does work with all iPads, in both landscape and portrait mode. Satechi does offer this in a number of different colors as well.

You can put this next to your computer and use SideCar on your iPad with ease. As well as using it as a computer with a wireless keyboard. The possibilities here are endless, and for $40, it’s worth having around.

Apple Magic Keyboard Folio


Price: $249

Where to buy: Best Buy

This is a new keyboard that Apple announced with the redesigned, iPad 10th generation in the fall of 2022. It, unfortunately, is only available for the 10th Gen iPad. But we think it will be made available to the other iPads, eventually.


This is basically the same as the Magic Keyboard for the iPad Air and iPad Pro, but with three main differences. It has a built-in kickstand. It also detaches from the keyboard. And the Keyboard also has a row of function keys, which is really useful on an iPad.

Apple Pencil (2nd Gen)

31QVBbn69oL AC SL1000

Price: $129

Where to buy: Amazon

The Apple Pencil (2nd Generation) is a great accessory for your new iPad. It works with all iPads, except for the regular iPad. It connects to the side of the iPad to sync and charge. It doesn’t take long to charge, either, since it does have a pretty small battery inside.

Apple Pencil is great to use with a variety of drawing apps, as well as for taking notes and so much more. I use mine all the time on my iPad Air to take notes within the Notes app and the newer Freeform app that’s available on all of Apple’s products.

Twelve South HoverBar Duo

6146abMLrYL AC SL1500

Price: $79

Where to buy: Amazon

If you’re looking for a stand, and are willing to spend a bit more, then the Twelve South HoverBar Duo is a really good option. This one allows you to mount it on a table, or shelf, as well as just stand it on your desk. The extra arm gives you more flexibility on how you want it to sit on your desk.

The weighted base keeps it from tipping over, which is a good look from Twelve South. This also allows you to get it up to a good height to use next to your Mac for SideCar. Which the iPad is great for SideCar. Finally, the Twelve South HoverBar Duo does come in two colors – black and white.
