Getting Used to the Logitech Slim Folio Pro

Logitech’s Slim Combo for the previous gen 12.9″ iPad Pro was my favorite keyboard case of all time by leaps and bounds. It checked all the boxes. It offered protection without too much added bulk. It could be positioned at a wide range of angles thanks to the hinged kickstand. The keyboard section could be separated from the iPad section giving it plenty of versatility. For me, that’s the perfect combo of features.

Hands-On Preview: TouchType Pro for iPad Pro

Every once in a while, I come across something really interesting while browsing Kickstarter or Indiegogo. The TouchType Pro, a creative and innovative keyboard case for the current gen iPad Pros, would seem to fit that bill. However, to be completely honest, that’s not how I found it. While the TouchType Pro campaign was just released on Kickstarter, I have been aware of this product for a while now. In fact, I’ve actually been able to go hands on with a prototype for a few weeks. More on this in a bit.

You see, Salman Sajid, the developer of the TouchType Pro and its earlier crowdfunded variations, originally reached out to me back in the Summer of 2017. After reading one of my iPad keyboard case reviews, he wanted to know if I would be interested in a project he was starting to work on. If you are a regular reader here, then you know there was no way I was passing that up.

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.

Review: Logitech Slim Combo Keyboard Case for the 12.9” iPad Pro

Back in June, I reviewed the Logitech Slim Combo Keyboard Case for the 10.5” iPad Pro. I came away giving it a recommendation, in spite of a few flaws. It had a high quality keyboard, which I have come to expect from Logitech. However, the plasticy feel of the exterior didn’t completely match up with the expectations at that price point. The 10.5” version also ended up quite a bit thicker than it had to be thanks to a large amount of dead space between the keyboard and iPad screen, making it a bit awkward to hold.

I noted in my review that there were some differences between the 10.5” and 12.9” versions of the Slim Combo. However, since I didn’t have a review unit in that size at the time, there was no way I could go beyond Logitech’s written descriptions of the differences. Well, a few days ago I saw a 12.9” version of the Slim Combo on the shelf at my local BestBuy, and I decided to take a look for myself. I decided to write a separate review because there are actually enough differences between the two versions of the Slim Combo that my first one doesn’t adequately cover the 12.9” version.

The iPad as a Laptop Replacement- Part One

This is certainly ground that has been covered in MANY articles, both before and after the release of the new 10.5” and 12.9” iPad Pros, and for plenty of reason. Apple’s marketing has placed the iPad Pro squarely in the conversation as a primary computing device, and encouraged this kind of examination. However, because the conversations tend to center around those of us in the Apple blogosphere and the tech community at large think, they usually focus on the iPad as a laptop replacement for US as “power users,” rather than more typical users.

Cool Things: Touchtype Pro Keyboard Case


Considering that there are few keyboard cases out there right now for the new 10.5″ iPad Pro, this new crowdfunded keyboard case that I came across today looks all the more interesting. The Touchtype Pro doesn’t come with its own built-in keyboard, but rather works with Apple’s Bluetooth-enabled Magic Keyboard. However, while there have been other, more simple products that paired an Apple Bluetooth keyboard with a stand and/or case for an iPad, this one has some features that set it apart.

Review: Logitech Slim Combo Keyboard Case for the iPad Pro


Keyboard cases have long been a favorite accessory of mine. I used to review just about every one that hit the market for the iPad at a couple of my previous writing jobs, and still try most of the good ones out, whether I write about them or not. One thing I have noticed is that all of the keyboard cases for first two iPad Pro models that I have tried have some kind of major trade-off that holds them back.
