It’s $60 to $70 more affordable than Apple’s keyboard, and it’s also lap-friendly.
Larger screened iPads are perfect fits for good-quality keyboard cases. Logitech’snewest case for the top-end , the Slim Folio Pro, could be a solid choice for anyone not willing to pay $180 to $200 for Apple’s own Smart Keyboard Folio. At $120 or $130 (for the 11- or 12.9-inch versions), they’re $60 to $70 less expensive than Apple’s options. And there are a few extras that Apple’s slim keyboard folios don’t even have.
I haven’t tested the Slim Folio keyboards yet, but much likefor the , the new case offers iPad protection, lap-friendliness when typing, and backlit keys (something Apple’s keyboards lack). Logitech’s keyboards also have a row of specialized function shortcut keys on the top row for things like screen brightness and volume. The case has an indent to accommodate the side-charging Pencil. (Apple’s keyboard case also has exposed sides for Pencil charging.)
It might also be a keyboard case to consider for anyone looking to turn their iPad Pro into a writing machine, particularly in light of MacBooks.on recent
The Logitech Slim Folio Pro design is thicker than Apple’s slim magnetic Smart Keyboard Folio, but if it’s anything like Logitech’s 9.7-inch Folio, it’ll be lap-friendly and provide some nice protection. But the cases notably don’t connect with Apple’s rear magnetic smart connector, instead opting for Bluetooth LE. I’ll follow up with hands-on opinions when I get one to review.
