When shopping for an iPad Pro keyboard case, look for one with a magnetic hold. Some keyboard cases have a slot for the Apple Magic Pencil. Others are folio, with magnets holding the keyboard in place. Logitech makes a Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro that is both attractive and functional. It can be removed and connected to other Bluetooth devices through Apple’s Smart Connector. The keyboard itself is not as elegant as the folio case.
Logitech Combo Touch keyboard case
The Combo Touch trackpad case combines a full-size keyboard with a multi-gesture trackpad for effortless tablet navigation. Whether you’re working on a document or spreadsheet, you’ll love the multi-use functionality of this trackpad case. The case’s flexible design and detachable Smart Connector keyboard allow you to use it in four distinct modes. In addition to the trackpad, the Combo Touch keyboard case supports up to four distinct use modes, allowing you to customize the experience.
The Logitech Combo Touch keyboard case for the iPad Pro fully encloses the tablet and is made from durable material that wipes clean. It also comes with raised sidewalls to protect the iPad’s screen, leaving space for screen protectors. The right side of the case is open for charging the Apple Pencil, while the left has a Smart Connector and embedded magnets. It also includes cutouts for the volume buttons and speaker.
The Logitech Combo Touch case is available for the iPad pro in a variety of colors. The Combo Touch keyboard can be customized using Apple’s Trackpad settings. This keyboard works great with iOS 7 and is typically twice as expensive as the Pro Keys. Compared to other trackpad and keyboard cases, the Combo Touch is far superior and almost as convenient as the more expensive Pro Keys.
Logitech Slim Folio Pro keyboard case
The Logitech Slim Folio PRO keyboard case for iPad lets you type on your iPad Pro like on a laptop. Its three distinct modes let you work on the go, whether you’re in the office or at home. Its protective front and back covers also provide a convenient place to charge and stow your Apple Pencil (2nd gen).
The case itself is made of a matte gray soft-touch material that echoes the aesthetics of Apple’s Smart Folio Keyboard. It is designed to fit snugly over the iPad’s corners and is lightweight. It is completely indistinguishable from the iPad, despite its thickness. A large rubber bumper protects the iPad’s screen from impact and ensures that typing is not hindered.
When paired with your iPad, the Logitech Slim Folio Pro connects to the tablet automatically. The case can be recharged using the iPad’s USB-C port. It will stay charged for up to three months. However, it doesn’t take advantage of Apple’s Smart Connector, which is only available in the Smart Keyboard Folio. The Logitech Slim Folio Pro keyboard case has a built-in battery, and will charge itself from the iPad once you’ve connected it.
Logitech Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro
The Logitech Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro holds the iPad Pro firmly in place with its powerful magnet. It also has a cantilevered hinge that allows the tablet to be tilted up to 130 degrees, just like the MacBook. This means that the iPad “floats” above the keyboard, unlike other options, which require you to look down. It is possible to use the Smart Keyboard Folio when using the Magic Keyboard.
Another downside to the Smart Keyboard is that it requires you to buy an external mouse or trackpad. The Magic Keyboard has an integrated trackpad, so you don’t need to buy a separate mouse to use it. The Smart Keyboard also does not have media keys, so you may not want to buy it if you plan to use it for video games. The Smart Keyboard is a good choice for casual gamers and those who don’t use their tablet often. It is a solid keyboard with adjustable brightness levels and can even be used in conjunction with the iPad screen.
One downside of the Magic Keyboard is the price. A 12.9-inch keyboard will cost you around $350, making it more expensive than most iPad accessories. However, considering that the iPad Pro is priced around $1,450, it might be easier to stomach this price if you plan to use it as a laptop replacement. You’ll also save some money if you have an iPad Pro with 128 GB of storage.
