Pairing two devices with the Belkin QODE™ Ultimate Pro and Slim Style Keyboard Cases

If you are having trouble pairing a second device to the Belkin QODE™ Keyboard Cases, F5L171, F5L176, and F5L174, you may have to clear the stored settings on the keyboard.  You will also need to clear the keyboard from your iPad Air® tablet's Bluetooth® settings and pair it back again.

IMPORTANT:  Before using your Belkin QODE Keyboard, make sure to disconnect the Bluetooth devices previously connected to it.  Also, if the keyboard layout of your device is different from that of your Hardware Keyboard, you must change the keyboard language to update the output.  Modifying only the iPad® or mobile phone language will not change the keyboard output.  For more information on how to change this on your Android™ device, click here.  For more information on how to change this on your iOS device, click here.

The steps below will guide you on how to clear the stored settings from your iPad Air and from the keyboard.  These instructions are for the following models:
