Logitech has unveiled accessories designed in collaboration with Apple for the new iPad Pro: the Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector and the Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand.
The Logi CREATE Keyboard Case is the first third-party keyboard on the market to leverage Apple’s new Smart Connector, eliminating the need to power on, connect or charge the keyboard, says Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech. Both Logi CREATE products offer thin and light front and back protection, and the tightly-woven premium fabric resists accidental bumps, scratches and spills.
Through leveraging the Smart Connector, the $149.99 Logi CREATE Keyboard automatically powers on and securely connects with the super-sized iPad when it’s placed in the typing position; no Bluetooth pairing is necessary. The keyboard is powered by the iPad Pro.
The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case features full-size 19 mm keys, and adjustable backlighting. The iOS shortcut keys also put the power of your favorite apps at your fingertips, says Hermann. You can activate search and media controls without ever leaving the keyboard. The case provides two viewing angles.
The $79.99 Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand has a hidden hinge that holds your iPad Pro in a viewing angle within a 60-degree range. You can place the iPad Pro upright in the stand for watching video or nearly flat for sketching with the Apple Pencil.
The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case and the Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand are available in a variety of colors including black, red or blue.
