Accessories for Apple iPad mini
That's a Wrap
The Apple Smart Cover for iPads was one of the most impressive accessories, but the one for the iPad mini was an absolute disappointment and lacked the build quality of the original.
The Apple iPad mini and the iPad mini with Retina display are amongst the most popular small-screen tablets in the market today. The mini, apart from being a gorgeous-looking device, also packs some very impressive hardware, which can easily rival your standard PC.

Apart from the many features on board and the treasure trove of apps that further enhance its functionality, what makes the iPad mini a real crowd puller is the many accessories available for it. These accessories go a long way in personalizing and lending more bite to your beloved iPad mini. Without further ado then, here's jumping right into the action, as we list some of the best iPad mini accessories in the market today.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover
What makes the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover so unique is that hidden underneath its rugged surface is a very capable keyboard. It connects to your device via Bluetooth, and does a great job of detecting every click. The keys have a very good tactile feedback and are very well built. The cover is extremely thin and weighs in at just 208 g. The full-sized keyboard has recessed grooves which hold the mini at an angle conducive for typing. The cover itself is active, which means that opening it wakes up the iPad mini, and closing it puts the device back to sleep. The cover has a great battery life (6 months on a single charge) and can be easily charged using the included USB cable.

WACOM BAMBOO STYLUS solo
The WACOM BAMBOO STYLUS solo is one of the most innovative products for the mini in the market. The style allows for pen input on your device, and does a better job than most styluses that come along with some other popular phablets. The stylus is incredibly good to grip and feels like a regular pen. This lets the user scribble across the screen just like he would with a pen and paper. The BAMBOO STYLUS solo is available in a range of attractive colors and has a tip cover that lets you carry it around like a regular pen. This is probably the most natural way of taking notes on the go.

On inserting the card in the attached reader, the mini automatically detects the files and opens them in the Photo app. It supports standard photo formats like JPEG and RAW, and also HD video formats like H.264 and MPEG-4.

The iPad mini is a fun device, and the accessories for it further add to its fun quotient. So take your pick and accessorize your mini. Cheers.
