What is the benefit of having a keyboard for my iPad Pro?

The best iPad Pro keyboards can help you to type faster than using an on-screen keyboard, can be more efficient, allow you to utilise space better, and offer you the flexibility to convert your iPad into the ultimate workspace, resembling a laptop-style setup, if you also pair your new keyboard with one of the best mouse's for iPad. 

Can I use any keyboard with my iPad Pro?

Yes and no. If you're using an external Bluetooth keyboard then as long as your iPad is equipped with Bluetooth then it should be absolutely fine, but if you're using a keyboard case then you'll need to make sure that you purchase the right one for your exact iPad model/size. 

To get even more complicated, there are some keyboards out there that use a dongle rather than Bluetooth to connect to your device, and most of the time these will be USB only. In this case, you would need to purchase an extra adapter (from USB-type C or Apple Lightning to USB for example) so you can slot the dongle into one of the ports on your iPad if it has any.
