Why is my Anker Keyboard Not Connecting?

Several reasons can contribute to the Anker keyboard not connecting to the iPad. I will highlight the reasons with the best solution to solve them.

Disabled Bluetooth

Most of the time, the primary reason why the Anker keyboard won’t connect to the iPad is due to its disabled Bluetooth. Enabling the Bluetooth is not a time-consuming process; it only requires you to press the Fn key + Z to turn the Bluetooth on. 

Wrong Authorization Code

When establishing the connection between the iPad and Anker keyboard, you must enter an authorization code to make the pairing successful. However, entering the wrong authorization code will not connect the devices, and you will have an unsuccessful attempt at connecting them.

Enter the authorization code by carefully watching the screen. Keep an eye on the numbers as there is 4 or 5-digit code that pops on the screen. It will help you to connect without any errors and connectivity issues.

Faulty Pairing

Sometimes the pairing between the iPad and Anker keyboard becomes successful and works fine. But when you attempt to connect the keyboard again on the previously paired iPad, it won’t let you connect. It happens due to faulty or malfunctioned pairing.

The best solution to this issue is to remove the Anker keyboard from the paired devices list. You will have to remove the keyboard from paired devices and again pair them. Follow the above method on how to connect Anker keyboard to iPad for more insight into the process.


iPad is a handy device that is your companion for everyday tasks related to entertainment and productivity. If you want to connect the Anker keyboard to the iPad, the process can take merely 3 to 5 minutes. You can pair and connect the devices using Bluetooth and get the most out of your iPad.
