2 iDevices, 1 bluetooth keyboard

Forum
Hardware & Accessories
I've just gotten myself a brand new shiny iPhone 5 and I'm really loving it! As the subject line says, I've got 1 bluetooth keyboard, but I want to be able to use it with both iDevices I have. The other one I have is an iPod touch 4th gen. I've experimented a bit and i've found that with the particular keyboard I have, I have to end up pairing it to the specific device I want to use, otherwise it won't work. In case anyone's interested, I have an amazon basics bluetooth keyboard and it's really nice! So is there anything I can do to bypass the pairing process when I want to switch iDevices? I know it probably sounds like a strange question but yeah! If anyone knows I'd be interested. Thanks.

Hi tune head, Not sure if you are in the market for a new Bluetooth keyboard, but I found this while casually surfing3 http://www.macworld.com/article/1167588/logitech_wireless_solar_keyboard_k760_works_with_all_your_apple_devices.html Apparently, you can connect and remember three devices. Hope this helps.

Hey. I looked at several keyboards actually, and I chose the Amazon one because it can be paired to several devices at once, or so I was told in the reviews. However, if I'm using my iPhone and then I want to use my iPod touch for whatever reason, I have to pair the keyboard each time I want to switch devices, I hope I'm making sense here? I'm sometimes horrible at explaining things lol. Also just as an aside, my nick on here is actually spelled T O O N H E A D. Don't worry, most people get it wrong lol. But I wanted you to know in case you wanted to respond somehow but couldn't find me or something. anyways, if i have to pair the keyboard each time I don't mind, but wanted to see if there's a faster way to do it, and at this point there doesn't appear to be. unless someone knows something and they haven't mentioned it yet. Thanks.
