Ten Essential... iPad Accessories

Add-ons for the top tablet

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Griffin A-Frame

RH NumbersThe A-Frame makes a good alternative to Apple’s own dock. It’s a sturdy aluminium easel that works well for displaying videos and photos, or simply storing the iPad while you charge it up - I’ve also found it handy for reading recipes off the screen when I’m in the kitchen. You can also lay the A-Frame flat on a table, where it tilts the screen slightly upwards to provide a more comfortable angle for typing. It’s got rubber grips that hold the iPad securely in either landscape or portrait mode, but still leave the dock connector free for charging and syncing.

Jabra Halo

RH NumbersCan you believe that Apple doesn’t even include a set of headphones with the iPad? The iPad does have a standard audio jack for connecting headphones, but it seems to me that the wireless Jabra Halo is the ideal complement for the elegant design of the iPad. Like the iPad, the Bluetooth-equipped Halo has touch-sensitive controls that allow you to adjust the volume simply by sliding your finger up or down on the right-hand earpiece. The headset folds flat when not in use, so it’s easy to carry, and also has a standard audio jack for use with other devices that don’t support Bluetooth.
