Cheap/simple way to get keyboard/mouse working w iPad Mini?

I’ve got the latest iPad Mini and I’d like to do a little more work on it with Shortcuts and JavaScript. But some of it gets a little tedious.

Would pretty much any bluetooth keyboard and mouse work with this? Or something else over Lightning? I don’t want to spend a lot of money.

Any ideas or recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Any Bluetooth or USB keyboard should work. If you go USB then you need to get a lightning to USB dongle. I think Apple still calls it the Camera Adapter.

Perfect, thx! I might give it a shot this weekend.

Anything MFi certified is a safe bet, but the iPad is Bluetooth and USB standards compliant, virtually anything you buy today should work. The Magic Keyboard from your Mac will, for example.

The Apple Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter allows you to use USB accessories while charging.
