I can not get my new iPad air to recognize my new Apple Touch Pad over Blue Tooth.  Does the Apple Touch Pad not work with the iPad Air and Apple Blue Tooth Key Board?

    It may work with the bluetooth keyboard but as far as I know, there is no mouse or touchpad support.

    The iPad functions via a touch screen and thus does not utilize any mouse/touch pad functions. The apple blue tooth keyboard should connect to the ipad and work though

    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
