Logitech announces a Keyboard with a Trackpad for iPads which do not support Apple’s Magic Keyboard

Yesterday Apple announced its new & refreshed iPad Pro with the new Magic Keyboard which has a Trackpad. This Magic Keyboard will only support the iPad Pro 11 inch (1st and 2nd generation) and the iPad Pro 12.9 inch (3rd and 4th generation).

There is good news for other iPad owners who want to have the same experience as the iPad Pro with the Magic Keyboard. Logitech has announced its “Combo Touch” Keyboard for the iPad Pro 10.5 inch, iPad Air (3rd Generation), iPad 10.2 inch (7th Generation).

The Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard has a Backlit Keyboard and a Trackpad just like Apple’s Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro. The keyboard and trackpad both possess precision.

For example, switching between apps, pinch to zoom, etc. The Keyboard has shortcuts to basic elements of the iPadOS like going Home, Adjust Brightness, Adjust Volume, Control Media, Spotlight Search & more. This keyboard also has shortcuts to adjust the brightness of the backlit keys on the Keyboard.
