NEWS – On Wednesday, Apple announced that iPadOS 13.4 will bring trackpad and mouse support for the iPad. With the news, Logitech wasted no time announcing their newest iPad keyboard case, the Combo Touch.
The Combo Touch Keyboard Case is compatible with the iPad (7th Gen), iPad Air (3rd Gen), and the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The new keyboard case comes with a trackpad and connects via Smart connector. At $149.99, it’s half the price of Apple’s Magic Keyboard case for iPad Pro.
The Combo Touch keyboard features backlit keys with five adjustable levels of brightness. It also features a full row of IOS shortcut keys, including Home, screen brightness, media controls, and screen on/off.
The case offers four different use modes. Type mode, Viewing mode, Sketching mode, and Reading mode. If you want to use the iPad without the keyboard, it detaches, and the case features a flexible kickstand that offers 40° of tilt.
The keyboard uses the iPads Smart connector to power and pair in one click without the need for batteries.
As far as protection goes, the Combo Touch will keep the front and back of your iPad safe from scuffs, scratches, and spills. The lightweight case securely holds the iPad and keeps the corners protected.
The Combo Touch Keyboard Case is listed as Coming Soon. Keep an eye on Logitech’s website for shipping and availability info. iPadOS 13.4 will be available on March 24th.

“…The keyboard uses the iPads Smart connector …” Can you tell me which version? The original iPad has this on the long edge, whereas the newer iPad Pro models moved it off the edge to the back. (What where they thinking?)
The keyboard is only compatible with the iPad (7th Gen), iPad Air (3rd Gen), and the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.
Thanks for reading and commenting.
I have a 10.5 inch iPad Pro. This case is exactly what I was looking for. I never have to touch the screen on my iPad again. Everything works seamlessly, especially with the smart connector, great keyboard and trackpad.
I am keeping my 10.5 inch iPad Pro;it does virtually everything the the 2018 and 2020 models do: four speakers, pro-motion.Perfect Set up!
