by

Incipio today announced several new ClamCase keyboard cases designed for the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 4. All of the cases use ClamCase's signature clamshell design paired with a 360-degree hinge, turning an iPad into a MacBook-style device.

First up is the ClamCase+, the first ClamCase keyboard available for the iPad Pro. The ClamCase+, which is also available for the iPad Air 2, features a full-sized QWERTY keyboard, backlit keys, and auto sleep/wake functionality. On the iPad Pro version, there's a built-in slot that holds the Apple Pencil when it isn't in use.

The ClamCase+ will be available in Gray, Gold, and Silver to match each of Apple's iPads. The iPad Air 2 version will retail for $149.99, while the iPad Pro version will sell for $169.99.

Exclusive to the iPad Air 2 is a new ClamCase+ Power case, which is a standard ClamCase keyboard case that also includes a built-in 6,000 mAh battery and a 2.1A USB port that can be used for charging an iPhone or other iOS device. The ClamCase+ Power, which only comes in black, will be available in the second quarter of 2016 and will retail for $199.99.

The ClamCase Prompt pairs to a smartphone via Bluetooth and is able to deliver alerts to the keyboard case.
