Attach the cover and keyboard to your Galaxy Tab S6

The Galaxy Tab S6 is a slim device that performs like a laptop but has the mobility of a tablet. You can make it even more PC-like by attaching the exclusive keyboard cover with a built-in trackpad. All it takes is a few simple steps to instantly transform your tablet.

Note: If you use the back cover, we highly recommend keeping it attached to your tablet at all times to ensure the best performance. The keyboard, on the other hand, can be attached and detached at any time.

Attach the back cover and keyboard

Adding the book cover keyboard to your Galaxy Tab S6 will unlock its full potential. The book cover keyboard is sold separately and comes in 2 colors: gray or cloud blue. The accessory is made of two separate parts - a back cover and a keyboard.

First, place the cover on the back of your tablet, using the camera cutout as a guide. The sticky area on the back cover should be in direct contact with the back of your tablet.

The back cover is made of 3 panels (small, medium, and large), and it’s important to understand their purposes. The small panel with the S Pen cover is designed to hold the S Pen. Simply lift it, put the S Pen in the engraved area, and close the panel to store your S Pen.

The middle panel with the sticky area is the anchor panel. It always stays glued to your tablet. The larger panel on the opposite side is an integrated kickstand. Lift the large panel and use the stand to hold your tablet at different angles.

Once the back cover is attached to the tablet, you can attach the keyboard. Each time you want to attach it, first make sure to lift the large panel of the back cover to get the kickstand ready. Simply align the edge of the tablet that’s closest to the stand with the keyboard’s connector.

The cover’s magnets will help guide you during the process. They also help the keyboard safely stay attached to the tablet; even if you lift the tablet, the keyboard will stay connected!

Note: If you close the keyboard on the tablet, it will put your device in Sleep mode and protect your screen. Open the keyboard and the tablet will turn back on automatically.
