Adding to the growing number of accessories made for Apple, Logitech has officially unveiled its CREATE Backlit Keyboard for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro priced at Rs. 9,995. The Create keyboard Case is a protective case with a backlit keyboard and an integrated holder for the Apple device in all in one lightweight toolkit. Ashok Jangra, Cluster Category Head, Logitech India and SWA said, “Create is like the Swiss Army Knife of keyboard cases.” He added that “It puts all the tools you need at your fingertips, and the keyboard charges through the Smart Connector so you can just set your iPad Pro into a typing position and go. It brings typing on the iPad Pro to a whole new level.”

Logitech Create backlit keyboard, designed to work exclusively with Apple’s new Smart connector, is fully backlit along with an edge-to-edge layout. It automatically switches on and connects to the iPad Pro when it is placed in a typing position. The keyboard automatically goes to sleep after 8 seconds when not in use. There is no need for Bluetooth or any other form of extra connectivity. Since the keyboard drives power from the iPad Pro, there is no need for charging it ever again. There is a holder for the Apple Pencil which is integrated into the device which gives an easy access. iOS shortcuts help in accessing the home screen as well as using the internet. The option of adjusting display and sound controls are also present. The retail price for the Create Keyboard for the iPad Pro has been set at Rs 9,995.

Apple which had launched the iPad Pro is a very powerful mobile device having a less than a 10-inch screen. Earlier than that the concept of the smart connector was introduced in its 12.9-inch iPad Pro for which Apple had unveiled its own keyboard but that didn’t go well with the consumers as was heavy and lacked backlighting. Logitech corrected those issues and is now selling the keyboard on its online platform.
