iPads are one of the most practical, easily portable, and fun tools you can use for work or everyday life–and their global popularity shows it. There are billions of tablet users in the world (with iPad users making up the majority of that!), meaning it’s clear that investing in an iPad is a great choice if you’re hoping to improve your work setup or invest in a fun and functional tech tool.

But did you know that with the right accessories, you can make your iPad experience even better? From iPad Pro cases to bluetooth keyboards, investing in a few fun accessories is never a bad idea. Product protection can help protect not only these awesome gadgets, but also the iPad itself. If your accessories or tablet get damaged in any way, an extended warranty plan can help ensure you're covered and won't be left on the hook for expensive repair and replacement costs.

What are the best accessories for working on an iPad?

Wondering where to start? Here are some of the best accessories you can invest in to help you get more work done on your iPad.

Apple Pencil

Although touch screens are easy to use with just your finger, investing in an Apple Pencil will help you take your efficiency and precision to the next level. Take notes during a work meeting, or draw a quick sketch to explain a complicated concept to your coworker. Apple Pencils are one of the best accessories you can buy to help you get more work doe, and at just $129.

When you’re purchasing your new Apple Pencil, be sure to grab a few Apple Pencil tips! Just like regular pencils, the tips on Apple Pencils wear out with use, so it’s important to have extras on hand. You can get a 4-pack for $19.

Paperlike Screen Protector

While the iPad’s smooth, glossy screen is helpful for some things, there are times when you will likely wish you had some real paper. Luckily, with a Paperlike Screen Protector, you’ll have the next best thing. Just as they sound, they're designed to make your iPad feel like paper as you’re drawing or writing on it. It’s a great option, especially for those who have to sketch or doodle a lot for work. You can get a 2-pack for $44.99.

Bluetooth keyboard

One of the best ways to increase the amount of work you’re able to get done on your iPad is by investing in a bluetooth keyboard. As quickly as you might think you can type on your phone, typing on a real keyboard is much faster. Bluetooth keyboards are extremely versatile and easy to transport–simply slide it into your bag or backpack to carry it with you and you’ll be ready to work from anywhere!

If you’re looking for a high-quality bluetooth keyboard for your iPad, be sure to check out the Apple Magic Keyboard. Thin, sleek, and easy to use, it also comes with an incredible battery life that allows you to use it for as long as a month without charging it. Get one for $99.

Apple Magic TrackPad

For even greater versatility, try the Apple Magic TrackPad. Wireless, rechargeable, and easy to use, the Apple Magic TrackPad allows you to accomplish even more work with fewer movements. Available in glossy white or black for $129, the Apple Magic TrackPad is a purchase that will make your work quicker and easier.

Anker power bank

Is there anything worse than when your iPad unexpectedly dies while you’re trying to work on an important project? Unfortunately, using your iPad consistently during a long work day is a surefire way to guarantee you’ll run out of battery. Luckily, with an Anker power bank, you can ensure that your iPad lasts as long as you need it to. Add hours onto your iPad’s battery life with Anker’s solution. It’s portable, easy to use, and will take up little space in your bag or backpack. Try the Anker 733 Power Bank model for $99.99.

Final thoughts

While iPads are an awesome tool for helping you get work done, with the right accessories, you’ll be able to easily improve your productivity and efficiency. Regardless of what iPad accessories you decide to purchase, be sure to purchase a product protection plan. Extended warranty plans can provide excellent coverage for an incredible price, giving you peace of mind in the event of an accident and ensuring that your purchases are covered so you can get the most use out of your products.
