Anyone own an Apple Ipad

Can you connect a wired keyboard and wired mouse  at the same time 

thanks 

I don't think so. I'm not even sure if you can do it wirelessly since there isn't anywhere to plug in the small wireless receivers needed. I'm no expert but just going by what my Ipad is capable of. It may work if your Keyboard and mouse work through Bluetooth.

Isn't there someway you could used a splitter? But then, I don't know anything about Ip-ads, as I don't even have a cell phone.

Depends how much you type. Ipad has big letters to make typing fairly easy but it's also quite easy to navigate with just your finger. My choice would be keyboard adapter if I typed a lot but I use a keyboard wirelessly attached to my laptop for that. I use my Ipad because I can see it much, much better than my Iphone(Don't need my glasses!).

Why not a wireless Mouse & Keyboard Regis?  Thats what I use.   You can use bluetooth or wireless - with a dongle but that needs to be either lightning or UsbC depending upon which ipad you have.

Also, unless your ipad is older, the picture (adaptor) you showed wont fit your port.  Which cable do you use for charging?

The left is called USB C - and was introduced on all ipads about 4 years ago... the older ones (prior to 2018) used the lighting (shown at right)

Im currently using a Dell Desktop ( 2010 ) - looking at possibly getting an ipad - and I was just wondering if I could connect  my current keyboard and mouse - see as Im just comfortable using an actual keyboard and a mouse . 

On line found some guy who did it  :)

Ah ok.  Yeah if you're getting a new ipad you'll need some sort of a USBC hub to physically connect a keyboard & mouse (Vs Wireless) but the problem is that the connector will have to supply power to both (your mouse and keyboard both require a small amount of voltage to work) so now you're trying to pull power from your ipad to those devices... so like something like this - but i have no idea how it would actually function, could be super laggy.

If you look on amazon or similar for a bluetooth keyboard & mouse for ipad you'll find some options that should work a lot better (and allow you to charge your ipad at the same time if you wanted)
