Logitech announces the Folio Touch, 11-inch iPad Pro keyboard case

Logitech has revealed the Folio Touch, the latest 11-inch for iPad Pro model keyboard case (both the 2018 and 2020 versions). It is a more affordable solution to Apple’s Magic Keyboard, and for earlier iPad versions it is close to the “Logitech Combo Touch”.

The case offers a foldable keyboard with a full line of iPadOS shortcut keys that are notably missing from the Magic Keyboard. The keys are backlit, and they change their luminosity based on ambient light. The Folio also contains a touchpad that supports multi-finger gestures such as pinch, double-tap, swipe and clicks.

The adjustable kickstand, up to 40 degrees spinning, and you can flip the keyboard behind the iPad pro’s back (one which you are not able to do with the Magic Keyboard). Due to the angle of the iPad and the location of the keyboard, you can use a connected iPad in four modes: display, typing, read and sketch.

The Folio Touch attaches to the iPad Pro through the Smart Connector from Apple, which is integrated into the tablet side. Which means the two nodes will immediately pair up (without Bluetooth) and you don’t need to charge the Folio manually — it receives power from the iPad.

The Folio Touch will be available in the market sometime for $160 in July 2020. You can buy it from Apple and Logitech.
