How Apps Can Change Your iPad
The best iPad accessories help expand the power of your iPad, provide additional screen protection, or make the iPad easier to use in general.
Today, there is no shortage of cases, keyboards, styluses and other accessories for your iPad. The best apps can expand your iPad’s capabilities and make it more useful. For example, a magnetic keyboard and stylus can turn your iPad into a sketchbook or laptop for serious writing or graphic design work. To determine what you’ll need from an iPad app, consider what you need from your tablet.
Are you an avid reader who prefers writing to typing?
If so, the stylus may be on the card. Don’t like the keyboard on the iPad screen? A separate keyboard with different viewing angle settings and backlit keys may be what you need for better performance.
Whatever the use, we are big fans of iPad apps that help users save time, work more efficiently, and ultimately be more productive. Along with features specific to each application, you’ll also want products from companies with a solid and trouble-free track record. Let’s not forget the excellent usability and functionality too! A tool wouldn’t be good if it wasn’t useful. So, keep reading to find out more about our picks for the best Apple iPad apps in 2022.

Each of Apple’s AirPods is a great companion for your iPad, whether you’re listening to music or watching YouTube videos. That said, if you’re looking for something that will block out the world and let you focus on your music or videos, the second AirPods Pro is the perfect choice. Why? AirPods Pro has active noise cancellation (ANC), unlike standard AirPods. The noise cancellation on the original AirPods was nothing special, but that changed with the new AirPods Pro, which boast noise cancellation that is close to the class.
Even better, Spatial Audio is greatly improved in the new AirPods Pro. While it’s great for music, Spatial Audio is better for watching movies on your iPad. When the head is turned on, it’s more like a movie being played through the speakers in the room than through the headphones you’re wearing. If you have an iPhone, MacBook, or other Apple device, AirPods Pro will easily accompany you from device to device.
Apple uses iCloud to detect the device you’re using at any time, automatically streaming audio to your AirPods Pro without the need to switch. The charging case has also seen major improvements since the first one. It has a built-in microphone and Find My connection to make lost headphones a thing of the past. The new case also has other ways to charge, with support for charging through the Lightning port, MagSafe, Qi wireless charger, and even Apple Watch charger.
