Logitech FINALLY Announces a New iPad Pro Keyboard Case

Logitech was the one third party accessory company that brought out keyboard cases for the first two generations of the iPad Pro right after release. They were also the only ones besides Apple to make use of the Smart Connector for their keyboards, rather than relying on Bluetooth.

Their Create cases for the original Pro were a bit heavy and bulky, but had great backlit keyboards. The Slim Combo cases that they released right after the 2017 iPad Pros were even better. In fact, the Slim Combo for the 12.9″ Pro is still my favorite keyboard case of all time. It was a near-perfect balance of protection, portability and utility.

Some Good News from Apple’s First Quarter- iPad Shipments are Up!

With its changes to the lineup and to iOS over the last two years, Apple has been able to stop the bleeding and reverse the fast downward sales trend that the iPad had been stuck on previously. However, the end result has been stabilizing iPad sales rather than growing them in a significant way. The way Apple did this was by introducing a less expensive, but still capable, standard iPad and making the iPad Pros more compelling as high-end devices. While sales of the less-expensive iPad propped up unit sales numbers, they also caused the average sale price of the iPad category to fall.

The NHL Inks Deal with Apple To Use iPad Pros for Analytics

The NFL has had an exclusive agreement with Microsoft to use its Surface Pros for all on-field tech assistance for a while now. This was initially a source of scorn for Microsoft, as announcers and TV studio personalities routinely referred to them as iPads until corrected. However, the deal eventually became a positive for them as solid reviews from coaches and players came in and the increased visibility on NFL sidelines helped to get the Surface name out in the public eye.

Review: UAG Metropolis for the 2018 iPad Pros

While I love a leather case, there are times when device protection comes first. If you take your iPad Pro with you to work every day like me, this may be the case. In my case, sometimes using my iPad Pro at work means putting it in harm’s way. That has a way of changing your priorities when it comes to cases.

One of the reasons that I’ve been a fan of Urban Armor Gear for a few years now is because their cases offer great protection at a reasonable price. However, it goes further than just taking great care of your devices. UAG’s cases also manage to do it with style and good design, as well.

Living with the New iPad Pros- Face ID is a Great Addition

There was a lot of speculation about how accurate and how reliable Face ID would be before the iPhone X was released last year. Those questions were answered quickly, as Apple’s TrueDepth cameras, Secure Enclave, and software combined to make a facial recognition easy to set up and even easier to use with a smartphone. After a year of success, there was little doubt that Face ID would work when it came to the iPad Pro. The question was if it could provide the additional flexibility needed to work well on a platform that isn’t centered around a single task or orientation.
