Take a quick look at the most helpful customer-favorited accessories that will be a perfect addition to your new iPad.
Since Amazon launched an official Apple Authorized Reseller Store, more and more users decide to shop all things iPad in the Amazon, not Apple online store.
Opposite to Apple, where you can find only a handful of accessories for your iPad model, there are thousands of them on Amazon. Sometimes, it’s even too many. Searching for “iPad stand” returns well over 20,000 results!
How to pick up the best possible accessory for your iPad? Obviously, you have to know what you are looking for. The more specific you are, the better. What if there are still thousands of products you’ll have to go through?
The number of reviews and average ratings become an essential factor in selecting the best options at hand.
We’ve put together only the items that received an average rating on Amazon of at least 4.5 on the 5-star scale. There are interesting items with higher average ratings than the one we’ve selected, but they haven’t received a sufficient number of reviews.
Below, you will find a quick and easy list that puts together best-rated iPad accessories. Each description includes iPad model compatibility, the number of reviews and average rating, as well as a passage from the most helpful review (that’s a verified purchase).

Top 10 best-rated Apple iPad accessories in 2019
1. Elastic Apple Pencil holder sticker
This clever Apple Pencil holder can be attached to almost any surface using 3M adhesive. Thanks to that, you can stick it to the iPad case you are currently using.
The holder is offered by Zugu and is tailored for both 1st and 2nd-generation Apple Pencil. It can also fit almost all other tablet styluses.
What’s important, Zugu offers 1 year warranty on this product.
I ordered this about 6 months ago and haven’t had any issues with it. I have it attached to the top of a generic folding iPad case. I applied it to the far right section and it stays comfortably out of the way, even when it is folded completely back with the pencil inside.– Amazon review
✨Compatible: iPad mini 5, iPad 9.7 (2018), iPad Air 3, iPad Pro 2018 models
Average rating: 4.7/5, with 773 reviews
2. iPad Pro compatible 4K/60Hz USB-C to HDMI adapter
A helpful tool if you want to play the videos or show the photos from your iPad Pro on an external monitor. This is a plug&play device – you don’t need an app or special software to make it work.
Maximum resolution is 4096 × 2160 at 60 Hz, delivering high-definition videos and images without blur, distortion, or delay.
The adapter is available in three colors, matching the colors of the iPad: Silver, Rose Gold, and Space Gray.
I wanted a means of displaying TV video from my new iPad Pro 11 without the high purchase cost of the Apple device. There are many USB C to HDMI adapters out there, but most don’t seem to work with the iPad. This is one of the few that advertises that it does work with the iPad, and I confirm that it works just fine.– Amazon review
✨Compatible: iPad Pro 11 (2018), iPad Pro 12.9 (2018)
Average rating: 4.5/5, with 92 reviews
3. Professional stand for designers
From Elevation Lab comes one of few iPad Pro stands dedicated for designers. Called DraftTable, the stand will make iPad Pro much more ergonomic to use.
The stand’s top is made from thick laser-cut steel with a matte black finish. The legs are glass fiber reinforced for strength. Everything is designed to keep the iPad in place when you are using it.
Besides the stand, the kit from Elevation Lab includes the armrest and a separate stand for Apple Pencil. There is also an option to buy only the stand.
Elevation Lab DraftTable is positioned as a stand for iPad Pro designers, you can use it with every iPad model, especially that all support Apple Pencil.
After dealing with neck pain and migraines from staring down and drawing I decided I would give it a try. This is the best money I’ve ever spent to make my life easier and I use it every day.– Amazon review
✨Compatible: All iPad models
Average rating: 4.7/5, with 139 reviews
4. Compact 13000 mAh 2-port charger & power bank
From Anker comes the successor to a legendary PowerCore 10400 power bank. The PowerCore 13000 model combines PowerIQ and VoltageBoost to deliver a maximum speed charge to any device.
The power bank comes with MultiProtect Safety System – surge protection, short circuit protection, and more advanced safety features keep you and your devices safe.
And all this in a compact shape that’s smaller than a wallet!
Available in four matte-finished colors: Black, White, Blue, and Red.
This thing is so damn reliable. I bought it in preparation for an 8 day Hawaii vacation where I’d be out and about the entire day doing tours and activities. It was there when I needed it, especially when I used my phone to take lots and lots of pictures so that drained my battery very quickly.– Amazon review
✨Compatible: all iPad models
Average rating: 4.6/5, with 6,847 reviews
5. Intelligent dual-USB travel wall charger
This upgraded 2-port wall charger comes with a built-in intelligent detection equipment current and voltage. Thanks to that, it can adjust current to charge each connected device.
The digital real-time display shows the charging status and lets you switch V/A. You can stop worrying about harming your mobile device.
✨Compatible: all iPad models
Average rating: 4.8/5, with 63 reviews
6. Full-size Bluetooth keyboard with sliding stand
Make a quick research on Amazon and you will notice tablet keyboards don’t usually get high ratings.
The keyboard from Nulaxy is one of few exceptions. It provides a highly comfortable typing experience and automatically goes to sleep after 10 minutes of inactivity.
There is a stand that you can slide out from the back of the keyboard. Thanks to that, you can place your iPad or iPhone at a comfortable viewing angle.
The keyboard is powered by 2 AAA batteries, and can last up to 90 days, based on two hours of daily use.
I started off using this as intended, for my iPad and iPhone and it connects without issue. The holder seemed a little flimsy at first, but it functions very well. I thought it would need to be wider, but it works just fine on my iPad Air.– Amazon review
✨Compatible: iPad mini 1-5, iPad 9.7, iPad Air 3
Average rating: 4.6/5, with 285 reviews
7. Innovative desk iPad stand with an integrated stylus
The design from Prepara is No. 1 choice when it comes to kitchen stands.
Available in two sizes, the iPrep stand will not only accommodate the iPad but also other tablets. It offers four adjustable angles for ideal viewing. A non-slip rubber grip at the bottom will prevent the stand from sliding on the kitchen desk.
The stand can be folded so that you can put it in the drawer. It comes in a beautiful gift box, complete with an ergonomic stylus pen designed specifically for use in the kitchen.
This stand is the best stand that I’ve found so far. It even has a stylus that helps keep your iPad surface clean. It has “locking positions” that’s that keeps your iPad stable.– Amazon review
✨Compatible: All iPad models
Average rating: 4.7/5, with 316 reviews
8. Water-resistant Apple Pencil holder and organizer
This smart little accessory will not only securely store your Apple Pencil (1st or 2nd generation) but also has a space for charger, cables, and other small accessories.
Built-in mesh pockets and elastic straps allow you to keep stylus (or styluses) securely in place and store small accessories such as charging cable, earphones, and Apple adapter.
A nylon lining inside protects your items from scratches and the dual-zipper opening keeps everything quickly access when you wish to use it.
I was surprised by the great quality. I haven’t had it long, but I don’t see any weak areas that could begin to fray. You can fit the Apple Pencil, other writing tools, a charger, screen wipes, a cord, an AirPods case, extra pencil nibs and caps.– Amazon review
✨Compatible: All iPad models
Average rating: 4.5/5, with 804 reviews
9. Cup car mount holder for iPad and other tablets
This is one of the most popular adjustable car mounts for tablets and smartphones, earning 4.5 stars on average.
Offered by iKross, the mount has an expandable base that can be easily mounted to most vehicle beverage cup holders. 360-degree swivel ball joint enables ideal and proper viewing angle.
No matter whether it is iPhone 8 or iPad mini, this solid construction will keep your device steady during any car ride. Road vibration is minimized, and a 10-inch swing arm guarantees stabilized viewing.
It is a really good stand. I thought it will not be stable with my iPad mini, but it stands really well. It could rotate to all angle vertically and horizontally. Built with high-quality material. You cannot go wrong with this.– Amazon review
✨Compatible: iPad mini, iPad 9.7, iPad Air
Average rating: 4.5/5, with 3,188 reviews
10. Paper-like screen protector compatible with Apple Pencil
This high-definition screen protector is made from premium-quality Japanese PET film material with a matte coating.
Opposite to other screen protectors, this one offers you a natural feeling similar to moving a hand or pen on a real paper.
It’s anti-UV, effectively reducing your eye strain. It offers a 3H hardness level and reduces fingerprints, skin oils, and smudges.
I had seen a number of paper-like screen protectors so I gave this one a shot. It went on pretty easy, the documentation was simple to follow and it came with an alcohol pad, screen cleaner towel and a bubble removal tool (really just some thick cardboard) that worked amazingly well in getting the protector on the iPad without any bubbles in it.– Amazon review
✨Versions: For all iPad models
Average rating: 4.9/5, with 84 reviews

Where to get the best iPad accessories?
Make sure to visit these online stores, if you want to see more options:
Amazon – the giant online store offers the largest selection of all kinds of iPad case covers and accessories. If we had to pick one web destination for everything related to the iPad, it would not be Apple. It would be Amazon.
Best Buy – the range of offered iPad accessories is pretty limited, but the store is worth checking out if you want to buy them at reduced prices.
eBay – a proven place to shop for affordable iPad accessories. Sometimes, you can pick up here an item that’s the same as the branded one you’ve found on Amazon – but costs two-thirds of the price.
Etsy – this is our favorite marketplace for custom items, hand-crafted to order. There are plenty of unique sleeves and jackets to choose from. Most of them are handmade and many can be personalized.
