So after a lot of requests from our users here is a guide about Use a Mac as a Bluetooth Keyboard for iPhone, iPad, or Android with Type2Phone.

If you don’t have a spare Bluetooth keyboard to connect to an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, why not use a Mac? This seems like a good idea, but until the Mac app Type2Phone came out, I never heard of such a solution. The app works by pairing a Mac with the iOS device (technically it works with Androids too), which is fooled into thinking the Mac is a Bluetooth keyboard, then you just need the Mac app and it will appear in iOS. Smart huh?

  • Type2Phone costs $ 4.99 in the Mac App Store (App Store link)

Requirements for using Type2Phone are quite simple: you obviously need a Bluetooth-enabled Mac and iOS device set to discoverable, and Mac OS X 10.6.6 and iOS 3.2 or higher. All you need to do is launch the app on the Mac and from the iPhone / iPad tap Settings> General> Bluetooth to turn on and then select the visible Mac to pair the iOS device with.

In addition to being able to use a Mac keyboard as a way to type on the iPad or iPhone, you can also use the app to finally copy text from Mac OS X and transfer it directly into an app on the iOS device to paste. These two features are so useful that you wish Apple had included them directly in iOS and Mac OS X, it just makes sense.

Turn a Mac into a Bluetooth keyboard for iOS devices

This is a great find from Lifehacker, which reminds us that the price of the app is significantly lower than the price of a separate bluetooth keyboard.

If you are having trouble getting the app to work, here’s a quick little troubleshooting guide from the description in the Mac App Store:

When you try to pair, your iOS device may not list your Mac or indicate that it is incompatible. The solution is as follows:

– If the Mac is listed with a blue arrow, tap that arrow and select “Forget This Device.” – Disable Bluetooth on Mac – Re-enable Bluetooth on Mac – Set Bluetooth on Mac to be discoverable – Start Type2Phone – Start your iPhone / iPad – On your iPhone / iPad, go to Settings> General> Bluetooth – Enable Bluetooth in your iPhone – Tap the name of the Mac to start the pairing process

If this complicated procedure is needed, it is only needed once during the initial pairing. Future connections are started from the Type2Phone software.
