Apple just announced one M1-based update for the iPad Proand Logitech has developed new keyboard and trackpad accessories for each generation of the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models. The Combo Touch is a case with a Microsoft Surface-style stand and a detachable backlit keyboard and trackpad. The connection is made via the Smart Connector of the iPad Pro.
Logitech has already released one similar combo touch keyboard for 10.2-inch and 10.5-inch iPadsas well as a related one Folio Touch for the 11-inch iPad Pro and the 10.9-inch iPad Air. The keyboard of the Folio Touch is not removable and the trackpad is slightly smaller than that of the new Combo Touch, otherwise it is a comparable product.
However, this is the first time Logitech has offered a keyboard / trackpad option for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro that is significantly cheaper than Apple’s own Magic Keyboard. The 11-inch model is $ 199.99 and the 12.9-inch model is $ 229.99 versus the $ 299 and $ 349 Apple charges, which means you can get around $ 100 Save dollars or more on sticker prices.
You may also prefer the Logitech design. It’s not as sleek as the Magic Keyboard, but the case offers better protection for the iPad, the detachability and stand add an extra level of versatility, and the keyboard has a useful suite of features. The 11 inch model is Pre-order nowwhile the 12.9-inch version is listed as “Coming Soon”.
