When Apple unveiled new iPad Pro models and the Magic Keyboard with trackpad, which is now on sale, Logitech also introduced new keyboard cases with trackpads that are designed for the 10.2-inch 7th-generation iPad and the 10.5-inch iPad Air.

As of today, the Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard Case with Trackpad for iPad and the Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard Case with Trackpad for iPad Air can be purchased from the Apple online store for $149.95 each. The ‌iPad Air‌ model is also compatible with the earlier 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

Logitech's keyboard cases combine a full-size backlit keyboard with a trackpad that supports multi-touch gestures and scrolling, much like Apple's own Magic Keyboard.

Designed with input from Apple, the cases support the Smart Connectors on the ‌iPad‌ and ‌iPad Air‌, which means no charging and no need to connect over Bluetooth.

The keyboards provide protection for the ‌iPad‌ when not in use, and have a kickback stand with 50-degree tilt and four usage modes for tasks like typing, viewing, reading, and sketching. There's also a holder for the Apple Pencil or Logitech Crayon.

Logitech's keyboards are the only available keyboards with trackpads that work with older ‌iPad‌ models at this time, as Apple's Magic Keyboard is limited to the 2018 and 2020 ‌iPad Pro‌ models.

So, iPad 7 ($250 on sale) + Logitech Trackpad keyboard ($150) + iPhone SE ($400) = $800. Nice little package for the minimalist.

Looks nice and practical, well thought-out and not a bad price too. Backlit keys and the holder for the pencil are nice touches.

interesting that Logitech are still the preferred partner for stuff like this (smart connector and gestures are supported) - I bet that means the trackpad works perfectly and doesn’t suffer from the apparent issues that the Brydge Pro+ does.

Strange that it's only for those models. I'd like other their reasoninging on that
My guess is that those willing to spend $800 for an iPad Pro are more likely to spend $350 for a keyboard. This appeals to a wider audience. You can spend $329 for the base iPad, $149 for this, $99 for the Pencil, and still have spent less than the iPad Pro alone.
