Hi. Are there any difference between these sentences:

It's easy for him to type on the keyboard.

It's easy for him to type with the keyboard.

What else can you do with your iPad?

What else can you do on your iPad?

Thanks for the help.

The following content was excerpted from OALD 4th edition:

with prep. indicating the tool or instrument used
on prep. by means of (sth); using

I still can't tell the difference...

    I would not use either of the keyboard examples - "It's easy for him to use the keyboard for typing." but I would use both of the iPad examples.
