Following Apple's event that saw the introduction of a new iPad Air, Logitech today announced the launch of the Logitech Folio Touch that's designed for the device.

Like the Folio Touch for the iPad Pro, the ‌iPad Air‌ version includes a full-size keyboard with backlit keys and, most notably, a trackpad that works with the trackpad gestures included in iPadOS.

The Folio Touch, which is priced at $160, is available as an alternative to the Magic Keyboard, which Apple is also offering for the ‌iPad Air‌. The Folio Touch is made from a soft gray fabric with a shell to fit the iPad into. It connects to the Smart Connector on the ‌iPad Air‌ so there's no need to charge it.

The Folio Touch for ‌iPad Air‌ appears to be identical to the Folio Touch for iPad Pro, with the exception of a smaller camera cutout, a power button cutout to allow for Touch ID, and being fitted to the ‌iPad Air‌, which measures in at 10.9 inches. We reviewed the Folio Touch for iPad Pro earlier this year and found it to be a great alternative to the more expensive Magic Keyboard.

Logitech plans to begin selling the Folio Touch for ‌iPad Air‌ in October 2020. It will be available from the Logitech website and the Apple online store.

Yeah if I wanted a Surface I would buy one. Don’t need my iPad to look or work like a Surface. These Logitech keyboards are a pass for me.
And that’s great that you don’t have to buy this thing you don’t want.

I wish they would go back to detachable keyboards. I am disappointed that their version for the 2018+ iPad Pros force the keyboard to be connected at all times. I liked it just being a kickstand because it was the best one on the market IMO.

Seems like Logitech is one of the very few accessory manufacturers with early access to info on unannounced Apple products.

Agreed. I consider this a step back. I don't want a keyboard attached all the time. I like my current case on my iPad 7. I can just keep the keyboard on my desk at all times and dock my iPad to it when I want to use it without taking it out of it's current case.
