Logitech has shown the Folio Touch, a keyboard cover with built-in trackpad that works with the two 11-inch iPad Pro models. The cover comes with an adjustable kickstand and users can fold the keyboard back.
The Folio Touch ‘s keyboard has a backlight that automatically adjusts to the light of the room the device is in. Above the regular keys are shortcut keys that are compatible with iPad OS, which allow users to navigate to the home screen of the iPad, for example or adjust the screen brightness or volume. The connection to the iPad is via the tablet’s Smart Connector, which also supplies the keyboard with power.
The Folio Touch has four modes, according to Logitech, namely typing, looking at something, sketching and reading. The kickstand is adjustable up to 40 degrees. When users do not need the keyboard, they can fold it back and place it under the kickstand. The case protects the screen, back and corners of the iPad Pro, according to Logitech. Pictures show that three of the four sides are also protected, only at the top there is a large cutout.
Logitech uses that cut-out as a storage place for the Logitech Crayon or the second-generation Apple Pencil. The case also uses a ‘strong’ magnetic closure to keep the cover closed during transport. Finally, the trackpad supports multi-finger gestures.
The Folio Touch is compatible with the first and second generation 11-inch iPad Pro models and has an American suggested retail price of 170 euros including VAT.
