Logitech Adds Multi-Angle Viewing to Ultrathin Keyboard, Launches New iPad Cases

Logitech today announced a new version of its Logitech Ultrathin keyboard cover for the iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad mini with Retina display, offering a new design that includes a flexible multi-angle slot that allows the iPad to be adjusted to different viewing angles.

The Logitech Ultrathin improves the flexibility and design of its predecessor with an even thinner and lighter keyboard cover and new flexible multi-angle slot that allows you to magnetically clip your iPad into the perfect viewing angle.
Like previous versions of the keyboard, the new Logitech Ultrathin is just a fraction of the weight of the iPad, measuring in at 6.4mm thick. It is designed from aluminum to match Apple’s iPads and the keyboard includes iOS shortcuts and keys spaced for optimal typing.

Alongside the updated version of the Ultrathin keyboard, Logitech has also announced several new protective cases for Apple’s iPads, including the Hinge, the Big Bang, and the Turnaround.

Logitech Big Bang, Turnaround, and Hinge

The Logitech Hinge is an ultra flexible case designed to offer a wide array of viewing angles, while the Big Bang is an ultra-protective, rugged case designed to protect the iPad from drops, spills, and scratches. The Turnaround, like the Hinge, is a multi-angle stand that also allows the iPad to be rotated from portrait to landscape mode and folds up into a stylish clutch.

this is an advertisement not a rumor.


It's a useful product announcement for something of which I was previously unaware. I really don't understand people's being incensed by such posts, calling them advertisements. I appreciate being informed by this site on products and services relevant to my needs as a Mac and iOS user.

Wasn't the innovation with iOS that you don't need a physical keyboard anymore? :confused:


Some people like/need a keyboard. You don't. Then don't buy a keyboard and don't post in keyboard threads. Really rather simple.

What does not make sense about it? I am at the library with my iPad mini retina. I have some stuff that I want to type in to pages from a book I'm using for research. If I dictate it I'm being loud and obnoxious. Trying to use an on screen keyboard for this is tedious. So I use my keyboard.

What I fail to see is why this is news when a better product exists.

Gudi knows full well why people want/need a keyboard. He/she is being the T word.

Than why is everyone so keen to make external keyboards for iOS devices? It just makes no sense.


Really? :confused:

You're remembering correctly: iOS devices work without an external keyboard, and in fact that's how they are almost always used.

An external keyboard is not needed, but rather an option for those people--and those times--when it may be useful.

And you're right: prior to Apple innovation, you did need a physical keyboard to effectively do lots of things that no longer need one.

I like the advertisement. My wife and I own the Logitech Folio case for our iPad Airs and they work brilliantly well. Super-tough and provides great viewing angles. (Little heavy but, as is the common "advice" on these boards: go the gym :)) We've both been interested in the keyboard case for sometime so I may consider buying one to share - not to mention the "Turnaround" which looks pretty awesome.

Logitech make some truly great products. (My Logitech Anywhere MX is coming to three years now; still going strong.)

No, what makes no sense is acting like an optional keyboard is the exact same thing as always needing a keyboard.

When it first came out on a phone. I find the iPad invites longer writing that really needs the feel and functionality of a physical keyboard. I loved my Logitech for my ipad2
