    Make sure both are fully charged.


    About using keyboards and headsets



    Connecting keyboard


    1)  on iPad:  pull up Settings > General > Bluetooth


    2)  slide from Off to On  (or On to Off, wait, then Off to On again)


    3)  on keyboard:  hold down the power button on the side until the little green light flashes


    4)  release


    5)  on iPad:  "Apple Wireless Keyboard" should pop up under "Devices"


    6)  if yes, tap "Not Connected" so it searches for a return signal from the keyboard

         if no, try resetting/restarting your iPad (holding down the Home button and the Sleep button at the same time) and repeating instructions


    7)  on keyboard:  send the iPad a return signal by pressing the Shift key
