Zagg today unveiled a new line of keyboard products designed for Apple's latest iPads, including the fifth and sixth-generation 9.7-inch iPads and the 2018 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.

Slim Book Go

ZAGG's Slim Book Go offers full protection for the iPad, with a stand-style case and detachable keyboard.

Designed to be slim and lightweight for easy transport, the Slim Book Go offers multiple viewing angles, backlit laptop style keys that can be set to seven colors, and a built-in holder for the Apple Pencil.

It's able to connect to up to two devices at once, with an option to easily toggle between them, making it ideal for use with both an iPad and an iPhone. The keyboard is battery powered and it is able to last up to a year between charges depending on usage.

The Slim Book Go is available for the 9.7-inch iPad starting today at a price point of $99.99. Versions for the 11-inch iPad Pro and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will be coming this spring, with the 11-inch model priced at $99.99 and the 12.9-inch model priced at $129.99.

Rugged Book Go

The Rugged Book Go is similar in design to the Slim Book Go, but it features better drop protection, much like other products in ZAGG's rugged lineup.

It will be able to withstand drops of up to 6.6 feet thanks to a durable TPU-wrapped enclosure. ZAGG plans to release the Rugged Book Go for the 11-inch iPad Pro this spring at a price point of $149.99.

Messenger Folio

ZAGG also plans to expand its Messenger Folio line, introducing a version for Apple's 11-inch iPad Pro. The Messenger Folio is ZAGG's more affordable keyboard series, offering up a lightweight protective case and a keyboard that does not feature backlit keys.

Unlike the Slim Book Go, the Messenger Folio is not a two-piece setup and the keyboard is not detachable. It does, however, feature a folio-style casing as the name suggests, with a built-in stand for the iPad.

The Messenger Folio features a tab for holding the Apple Pencil in place and a magnetic lock closure to keep the case closed up when the keyboard is not in use.

ZAGG plans to release the Messenger Folio for the 11-inch iPad Pro in February for $69.99.

Glass+ VisionGuard Screen Protector

Along with its new keyboards, ZAGG today announced that it is introducing an InvisibleGlass+ VisionGuard screen protector for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and the 2018 iPad Pro models.

The VisionGuard is designed to cut down on blue light exposure while also keeping the iPad's display safe from scratches and dings.

InvisibleShield Glass+ VisionGuard screen protectors are available for the 11-inch iPad Pro ($64.99), 12.9-inch iPad Pro ($74.99), and 9.7-inch iPad Pro ($59.99) starting today from the Zagg website.
