Are you looking for some new Apple iPad Accessories?
In the most recent release of new gadgets the folks at Apple announced that they had upgraded the Apple iPad once again to “Pro”.
Most of the changes to this new iPad have been internal, with one exception. The iPad is the same dimensions as its predecessor, but it has a different connector. Gone is the old 30 Pin iPad Connection and in is the new Lightning Connector that the folks at Apple are beginning to put on all of their gadgets.
This Lightning connector is on the iPad, the iPhone, the iPad mini, the iPad Air, and the iPad Pro. Chances are it will be around a few more years.
That is all well and good, but what does this mean for your iPad accessories?
For the most part this means that the new iPad accessories remain unchanged in size between the older iPads (although there MAY be some size issues between cases that fit the previous iPads) the HUGE exception to this is that any of the iPad accessories that use the old 30 pin connector will need an adapter to function.
While there are some docks, mounts and other iPad accessories made particularly for the new iPad , many of the peripherals for now, still have the old 30 pin connector.
Regardless of this new connection, this article is all about bringing the BEST of the iPad Pro accessories to you.. Covers and Cases. Skins. Guide Books. iPad Apps. iPad Car Mounts.
Extra Cables, Power adapters. Adapters for the Lightning connector. Headsets. Speakers. Stylus pens. iPad Bike Mounts, iPad Mini Car Mounts. Screen protectors. Warranty. iPad Docks and speaker Docks. iPad Noise canceling headsets. The list of the possible iPad accessories is actually quite long.
With this list of Apple iPad accessories and gadgets you can pick-and-choose what you need to improve the functionality of tour new iPad . This list is also a great guide to help you find some great iPad accessories for anyone on your gift list.
I Hope that this page helps your find what you are looking for when it come to finding the best iPad Mini Accessories. If you know of any cool iPad Accessories that are not included in this top accessories list, I would appreciate it, if you would let me know in the comments at the bottom, so that I can add them to this list to help others find the best stuff for their new Apple tablets.
iPad Charging Dock
With the release of the latest generation of Apple devices (Including Apple iPads, Apple iPhones and iPad Mini) there is a new connector in town. Gone is the old 30 pin connector and in is the new Lightning connection.
The older docks and mounts will still work with the latest generation of Apple devices, but they now need a Lightning Adapter to work.
The picture has the Hercules Tuff Charging Station, a very simple docking stations that already includes the lightning adapter.
As more-and-more people get the newer iPhone, expect more peripherals to use the lightning connection, but until then, the older peripherals and one of the adapter accessories will get the job done.
Bamboo Stand for the iPad – A cool iPad Stand to hold your ipad
This stand looks great on any table or desk and will be a focal point of the room. You can put just about any mobile device on this stand, to have one set place where your device goes.
But this works particular well for tablets. This stand lets you watch your TV, Moves and do your facetime in either portrait or landscape modes.
This is a fairly simple and minimalist design iPad accessory, but it is one that looks great and helps to imbue your room with a sense of style and class.
iPad Bike and WheelChair Mounts

The first two of the iPad Bike mount accessories mount onto the “bar” portion of your exercise bike allowing you to use your new iPad while working out.The third option is a “tray” that attaches to the center of your bike and then the iPad will strap on over that.
The first two iPad bike mount accessories are also able to be connected to a wheelchair.

There are quite a few different types of Car Mount accessories for the new iPad . There are Car Mount accessories that allow your iPad to be mounted in the front of the car. Used in that position your iPad can be used in a hands free manner.
It can be a GPS, a location finder, a music jukebox and much more. There are thousands of Apps that will let you use your iPad for quite a few different navigational functions.
There are also options to set up your iPad as a rear seat mount which allows your children or backseat passengers to enjoy TV Shows, movies and other multimedia entertainment while you are driving.
Cool Cables and Connector Accessories for the Apple iPad
Connectors that are helpful in extending the capability of your iPad. As I mentioned in the intro, the iPad and the older versions of the peripherals do not always match up. Because of this fact adapters and plugs for the new IPad really do make some of the best accessories.
These plug and adapter accessories will help to connect your new Apple iPad to a wide variety of other great peripherals and devices.

IPad Stylus Pen Accessories
Write, Draw and Paint on your new iPad Touchscreen. One of the nifty things about tablets are the touch screen. Each and every generation these touch screens, and the syluses that are used to write, draw and paint on them, have gotten more and more responsive.
It is possible to make some pretty incredible looking painting on an iPad these days, painting on them like a canvas.
Are you unsure how good the potential quality of these pictures really is? Take a look at some art made on an iPad
But you may not need a stylus accessory to make a work of art? Chances are you just want it as a reliable Pointer and as a tool to “write” on your IPad touch screen. Fortunately you can do all that with the good styluses below. They are quality and reliable capacitive styluses for the new Apple iPad .

These awesome iPad Brush Styluses and the use of one of the hot new iPad Painting Apps and of course a little native talent (we can work on that) will have you painting masterpieces in no time.
- These folio cases look classy and elegant
- The microsuede interior of these iPad cases works to keep the display scratch and dust free, while also buffing and polishing and getting rid of fingerprints and their oily residue build-ups
- The Leather of the case provides a tough and strong defense for the new tablet.
- Just like a book, the cover can always be”on: providing protection when you need it, but never getting in the way
- The cover can fold back on itself. Thereby acting as a “stand” for your iPad for upright hands-free viewing.
- This Case fits the new iPad perfectly
- And the whole thing sells for a reasonable price
iPad Keyboard cases
Increase the functionality of your iPad. One of my favorite Accessories for the iPad is the keyboard case. I like this iPad accessory a lot because I think it really does a lot to improve the functionality of the iPad.
These keyboard cases can also act as stands for hand free viewing of multimedia, like TV and movies on your iPad.
The Cover itself, of course, provides a great degree of protection and keeps your new IPad from getting dings and damage that will happen without any sort pf protection, as well as keeping dusty off the screen and, in some cases, even having a microfiber interior that will help remove blemishes like fingerprints and whatnot.
Then of course there is the actual keyboard itself, which allows much simply use than the onscreen keyboard.
Rather than having 1/2 of your screen taken up buy the letters for the keypad, you get the entire screen and the means use your keyboard and screen in a more ergonomic manner.
In many ways when you get this keyboard case it can make your new iPad have the ability to be an “on-the-go” tablet, just smaller and only when you want it to happen.
Because of this it is my opinion that one of these iPad case accessories really helps to make your new tablet a lot more than just any old tablet.
Gel Cases for the iPad
Inexpensive and cool cases to protect your new Apple tablet. Gel cases have some definite positives. They are an inexpensive way to cloak your iPad in a case that will provide nice and thin protection for your tablet. Gel covers can stay on your iPad at all times.
They are a thin covers, never adding much to the aspect of your tablet, They are often among the least expensive covers for your tablet. And of course they can be quite colorful and nice to look at
Some Cool Science Accessories for the iPad Mini
Microscopes for your ipad! There are lots of cool things you may never have thought of that you can use for your new iPad . The two big pictures below are the perfect example of this.
How many people would think about using a USB microscope to view and store slides on their iPad? Probably not many, but it is a very cool way to extend the usefulness of your new device.
While these USB microscopes do not have the precision of a new thousand dollar stereo-zoom microscope, they are more than enough to show slides to kids and do some basic microscope work. A pretty nifty tool that helps to make your iPad into something that you might never have thought it could be. A mini laboratory.
Safety and Security for your new iPad
Most the these iPad accessories are just that: Accessories. They are not really “needed” but might be nice to have. They are completely optional, and totally depend on YOU the user.
But these two I would put in the HIGHLY and strongly recommended area.
An iPad is not something you can take to the store and fix if it breaks. If it is not under warranty, you are basically out an iPad if it breaks. So why wouldn’t you want to get the extended warranty.
As for the screen saver plastic sheets. These are incredibly inexpensive, and also an important option. They will help to keep your ipad screen from getting dusty, scratched and dinged and damaged. Considering ALL that you use the screen for in an iPad tablet…this is VERY important.
If the plastic sheet gets a scratch. Replace the 2$ sheet.
If the $500 + iPad gets a scratch without a protector… you are just out of luck and you will have to live with the scratch degrading its performance over time.
So there you have it, a pretty solid list of great iPad accessories to get you started! Hope they help. Let me know in the comments what gadget you decided on?
