Along with the backlit keyboard, decked out with a protective case and integrated holder for the Apple Pencil, the Create keyboard case is designed to work with Apple’s Smart Connector, automatically powering on and pairing with an iPad Pro when placed in the typing position, with no Bluetooth pairing needed.
Powered by the iPad Pro, users don’t need to charge the Create keyboard case.
It additionally sports a row of dedicated iOS shortcuts, allowing users to get to the home screen, search their iPad and the web, adjust brightness and control audio or video playback, with one tap.
Logitech states that “custom-sculpted curves provide structural integrity”, helping to protect an iPad Pro on the inside, while “tightly woven premium fabric resists bumps, scratches and spills” on the outside.
“Create is like the Swiss Army knife of keyboard cases,” Michele Hermann, Logitech vice president of tablet accessories, commented.
“It puts all the tools you need at your fingertips, and the keyboard charges through the Smart Connector, so you can just set your iPad Pro into a typing position and go. It brings typing on the iPad Pro to a whole new level.”
The Create backlit keyboard case for the 9.7″ iPad Pro is available now from Logitech and Apple at a suggested retail price of $199.95.
