Pairing the Belkin QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case

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 Belkin QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case variants are the following:
  • Belkin F5L151 (for iPad Air®)
  • Belkin F5L178 (for iPad Air® 2)
  • Belkin F5L149 (for iPad® 4th and 3rd generations and iPad® 2)
Before you begin, ensure you have done the following:
