A couple of days ago, Logitech unveiled the CREATE keyboard accessory for the iPad Pro. Since no one else had announced anything yet, Logitech was basically the first to announce a third-party keyboard case for the iPad Pro. However it looks like Zagg does not want to be outdone as they have similarly announced keyboard cases as well.
The company has announced that they will be offering up two different keyboard case models for the iPad Pro. This comes in the form of a Messenger Universal model priced at $69.99, and the Slim Book Pro at $139.99. Both models are expected to be released in November, but unfortunately there was no mention of taking advantage of the iPad Pro’s Smart Connector.
This means that these keyboards will have to be paired via Bluetooth. Is this bad? Not particularly, but if you don’t like having to charge your keyboard and your iPad, then this might present some very minor inconveniences. However Zagg does promise a two-year battery life so we suppose the use of Bluetooth is not a big deal.
As for the iPad mini 4, there will be three options to choose from. All are expected to go up for sale later this month. One of the models is the Slim Book priced at $119.99. The next is the Folio that will cost $99.99. Both models will feature backlit keys. Last but not least is the Folio with non-backlit keys which will retail for $79.99.
