Logitech has announced the SLIM FOLIO PRO keyboard today for Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro line up, with support for 11-inch and 12.9-inch models. This marks the first Logitech keyboard available for Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro models.
These new backlit keyboard cases connect to your 2018 iPad Pro with Bluetooth and offer protection for wherever you plan to work, according to Logitech.
“Many of us work away from a traditional desk these days, so whether your office is at the kitchen table, a couch, a neighborhood cafe or an airport lounge you need a complete and easy typing solution,” said Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech, in a statement to iPhone in Canada.
With SLIM FOLIO PRO offers “fluid, natural and accurate” keystrokes thanks to the scissor mechanism beneath each key, offering the “perfect bounce” for quick typing. The keyboard includes iOS shortcuts to control volume, iOS search, backlit keyboard brightness (3 levels), media controls, screen on/off and more.
For artists and those using an Apple Pencil (2nd generation), an opening on the side of the case allows easy access to charge your stylus. A magnet latch keeps the case secure when closed, while also securing your Apple Pencil with a storage loop so it doesn’t get lost.
The Bluetooth keyboard’s rechargeable battery lasts up to three months on a single charge.
“The new Logitech SLIM FOLIO PRO brings even more versatility to iPad Pro, with a high performance backlit keyboard layout that lets you work at your highest level. With one click it makes your iPad Pro more like a laptop for easy typing whenever and wherever you need it,” added Hermann.
The Logitech SLIM FOLIO PRO retails for $149.99 and $169.99 in Canada for the 11-inch and 12.9-inch case configurations, available now on the company’s website with free shipping.
