Now that iPadOS supports mice and trackpads, it’s a better time than ever to turn your iPad into a mini iMac. To do that, you need the Slope: a nice-looking stand that props up your iPad at the perfect angle for working. Just slide a keyboard and trackpad underneath, and you have something that resembles Apple’s new Magic Keyboard, but at a fraction of the price.
Made from anodized aluminum, the Slope looks good in the kitchen, on your desk or at bedside. It keeps your iPad out of the muck when cooking, or at the perfect angle for watching videos.
Slope, a beautifully designed minimalist tablet stand, transforms your iPad into a second Mac screen or even a mini iMac.
Whether you’re pairing iPad with Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard, or using it as an external display for MacBook or iMac, Slope positions and displays your tablet with utmost style and security.
It’s the perfect way to integrate your new iPad Pro into your desktop setup and Apple ecosystem. This is especially significant with the rumored macOS 10.15 update, code-named “Sidecar,” enabling an iPad to act as a second screen for running macOS software.
The Slope is similar to the MiStand I reviewed yesterday, only it goes long on style and short on utility. It’s essentially a bent piece of aluminum with sticky pads on each side, and it holds your iPad, hovering, above your desk.
