The keyboard turns on automatically when the case is put into ‘type mode’; there are two slots to rest the iPad in to support two different typing angles. Of course, you can also fold the keyboard cover to the back of the iPad to enter ‘reading mode’ and you can lay the case on a table with a slight incline, perfect for sketching or typing on the virtual keyboard.
Apple’s first-party Smart Keyboard Folio case is more expensive and lacks backlit keys or a function row for media controls. Unlike Apple’s case, the Logitech Slim Folio Pro does not use Apple’s Smart Connector for data and power. Instead, it relies on Bluetooth to communicate with the iPad. This means it must be charged separately using the case’s USB-C port. Logitech claims most users will last three months on a single charge, so this shouldn’t be too much of a hassle.
I had the previous version of this keyboard for the second generation iPad Pro and it was my favourite keyboard for any computer let alone the iPad. Insta-buy.
