Logitech unveiled its first accessories designed in collaboration with Apple to perfectly complement the aesthetics and features of 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.
“The iPad Pro coupled with iOS 9 opens new ways to create, work and play on the tablet,” said Damian Lepore, Managing Director of Logitech Australia. “With this in mind, we worked closely with Apple to design the Logi CREATE, and unleash even more possibilities. The result is a functional yet beautiful case, and the best iPad keyboard we’ve ever created. From compatibility with the Apple Smart Connector, to the colour and finish of the keyboard, every detail was meticulously crafted to perfectly complement the iPad Pro.”
The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is designed to work exclusively with Apple’s new Smart Connector for seamless communication between the iPad Pro and the keyboard. Through leveraging the Smart Connector, the Logi CREATE keyboard automatically powers on and securely connects with the iPad Pro when placed in the typing position – no Bluetooth® pairing needed. And because the keyboard is powered by the iPad Pro, you never have to think about charging your keyboard again.
What To Expect
The keyboard features adjustable backlighting and an intuitive layout, helping you take full advantage of the iPad Pro’s expansive workspace and new iOS 9 features. The iOS shortcut keys also put the power of your favourite apps at your fingertips – you can activate search and media controls without ever leaving the keyboard. The case provides two viewing angles, so you can make the most of the iPad Pro’s big, beautiful screen whether you’re posting an update, watching videos, or using the Apple Pencil to take notes.
Price & Availability
The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is available for a suggested retail price of $229.00. They are available in a variety of colours including black, red or blue. Both are expected to be available online and in Apple stores mid November 2015, at the same time the iPad Pro becomes available.
