Summary. Using the Apple Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard (pictured above) with the iPad Mini (pictured below) creates a solid-state portable laptop-like computer experience in a very small, light, and modular system. The keyboard has a full-size layout in the smallest space possible.
System Keys. Some of the top row system controls should work with the iPad Mini such as brightness, volume, play music (pause, next, previous track), and the eject button (to reveal the touch-screen keyboard.
Fixing Problems. If some of these keys aren’t working or aren’t responding, turn off the Bluetooth on the iPad Mini, and then turn it back on again to connect to the keyboard. This should resolve any issues.
