MXtechnic keyboard case for iPhone 6

Whether you are trying to win a speed texting contest or writing an article for your blog from your iPhone 6, the on-screen keyboard is not exactly a highly productive feature. To get the most out of your typing experience, you may want to invest in a keyboard case

MXtechnic makes an ultra-thin, slide-out, wireless keyboard case that gives you a more tactile typing experience than the on-screen keyboard on the iPhone 6, and the price tag makes it even more appealing.

The case is a hard shell back cover that is specially designed to fit the iPhone 6. There are cut-aways for volume controls, as well as the headphone jack, speakers, and Lightning port. There is also a hole for the back-facing camera that is accessible when you slide the keyboard tray out.

The QWERTY keyboard tray is mounted to the backside of the case and can be quickly accessed by sliding it out. It connects to the iPhone 6 using Bluetooth and features a 3.7V rechargeable battery that can last an estimated 60 hours of straight typing. Plus, it supposedly charges up to full in just two hours. The included micro USB cable recharges the keyboard when you need it.

The keys are made from ABS plastic, which the company claims you can hit them up to seven million times. There are dedicated keys specifically designed to control such iPhone 6 functions as audio playback and screen brightness.

MXtechnic’s ultra-thin slide-out wireless Bluetooth keyboard case for iPhone 6 costs just $23 on Amazon, making it a reasonable investment in your typing future.

    Does anyone know if this keyboard can be programmed as input for emulators? physical buttons instead of on screen eventhough it’s clicky.

    It actually looks done right for once, pretty cheap too.

    Not for 6 Plus?….. 🙁

    Isn’t the whole point off to touch screen is so you won’t have to use a physical keyboard

    • No

      • bigzjoseph

        We 2 different people I guess

      • Keep in mind we had touch screens WITH physical keyboards before the iPhone so no it was not the point.

    oh look 2004 aesthetics for a 2015 device lol – i understand the need for physical buttons then. The whole switch from physical to virtual was beyond a learning curve. But we are already almost a decade into touchscreen keyboards.

    If at this point you haven’t gotten used to it – you have growth/adoptation problems.

      or you just can’t stand ugly input methods like on-screen keyboard.

  • swiftkey/swype is all you need! 😉

      Nintype is my keyboard preference.

      • yeah i gave it a try and quite like it, lots of options and customizations to be had, it can be a bit convoluted but it does the job nicely! 🙂

      swype is a mess

      • it’s actually pretty good, if not for the fact that suddenly it started conflicting with chat apps i would of kept using it.
