The unique QuickFold design allows you to hide the keyboard beneath the iPad Air so you can quickly and easily transition from typing mode to viewing mode.

Top customer reviews
- Magnetic structure holds iPad in place, you can even lift the iPad and the keyboard will stay stuck to the side. Also has a magnetic close to keep the iPad shut when you want it shut.
- Price, it's pretty affordable compared to what you get.
- Long battery life
- Ability to charge out for iPhones or other devices
- Overall design and how the keys feel when pressed is smooth
- The little charge out cable is hidden in the packing and you pretty much have to rip the box open to get to it.
- No brightness controls on the keyboard, you have to do it manually by swiping up on your screen or going into settings
- Two buttons that bring you to the search menu on the iPad. That's a waste of a second button for the same feature, but with a different little ion on the keyboard. One icon is a magnifying glass, and the other is a globe.. But they do the same thing.
- Sometimes when you turn on the screen from waking up the iPad, you have to swipe to the part where you can type in your password. Hitting the keys on the keyboard does not automatically get you to the password screen.
The KeyFolio Thin X3 lives up to what I expect out of Kensington hardware - it is solidly constructed. The KeyFolio cradles the iPad much more firmly than the Logitech keyboard that it replaced. My iPad slipped out of my old keyboard/folio. From my limited experience with the Key Folio, I don't foresee that this will be an issue with the new hardware.
Additionally, the keyboard is laid out like a traditional full sized keyboard. The keys are a bit smaller but they're all there. My fingers easily found their way around the keyboard when I touch typed, something that didn't happen with the Logitech keyboard with its multi-function keys and the FN key. The KeyFolio has an FN key, but it doesn't alter the function of any of the primary keys that I used to type.
I do have one minor issue with the KeyFolio, and it isn't the keyboard itself, but rather the lack of a manual in the very nice retail box. In order to find a manual (and yes, I'm one of those people who reads manuals), I had to go to the Kensington website and look at it there. It wasn't a huge deal, but I had expected a manual in the box. Heck, I got as more documentation in the box with my Kensington power-strip than I did with this product. My iPad is a WiFi only machine. Lacking a manual is fine because I had access to a network with internet connectivity. However, had I not had this connection, it would have nice to have a manual in the box.
I had one further minor glitch with the bluetooth pairing. The manual states that the iPad would identify the keyboard as KeyFolio Thin X3. In my case, the iPad identified the KeyFolio as Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard. I figured it out pretty quickly, but I'm not sure that my 82 year old mother would have done the same.
After letting the KeyFolio charge overnight, I plugged my iPhone into it to let it charge. The phone was only at 80% charge, but the phone did register that it was plugged into a power source, and the charge level climbed from 80% to 88% in about 15 to 20 minutes. While I didn't buy the KeyFolio for its ability to charge my phone, this is a very nice added feature.
I wish that I'd seen the KeyFolio Thin X3 when I was originally looking for a bluetooth keyboard for my iPad Air. It seems to be exactly what I was looking for.
