Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard and Trackpad Case for 4th-Gen iPad Air Now Available for Pre-Order, Ships in July

Logitech has launched a version of its Combo Touch Keyboard for Apple's 4th-generation iPad Air, offering a more affordable alternative to Apple's Magic Keyboard.

Combo Touch for iPad Air
Priced at $199.99, which is $100 cheaper than the Magic Keyboard for the 10.9-inch ‌iPad Air‌, Logitech's Combo Touch Keyboard provides a full folio case with attached keyboard and touchpad.

Like the version already available for Apple's latest iPad Pro models, the keyboard is detachable and an integrated stand allows it to be used in various typing, viewing, sketching, and reading modes.

It connects to an ‌‌iPad Air‌‌ using the Smart Connector, so there's no need for pairing or charging a battery. It also features backlit keys, iPadOS shortcut keys, and space at the top for storing and charging an Apple Pencil (2nd generation), which attaches magnetically to the iPad.

Logitech's Combo Touch for the 4th-gen iPar Air comes in gray, and the company is also now offering a new "sand" color option for the iPad Pro (5th gen) version of the keyboard case.

The Logitech Combo Touch for the 4th-gen ‌iPad Air‌ and the new color for the ‌iPad Pro‌ version are available to pre-order from the Logitech website. Both products start shipping next month.

I have the older 11 inch iPad Pro version and can generally recommend it.

- Keyboard is still pretty good, but not as good as the Apple keyboards in terms of stability.
- Keyboard shortcuts & backlight (assuming this one has it too) are great.
- Trackpad is good, they fixed the issue where the previous trackpad couldn't be clicked at the "top".
- My main gripe is it's so bulky - it's as thick as an AirPods Pro case and it seems like they didn't change that.
- Kickstand is fine, but as with any kickstand it's a bit annoying if you want to use the iPad on your lap.

EDIT: Watched a video and they did apparently make the back shell a bit thinner.

I am typing this response on the iPP version and agree with your comments. I wish Logitech would sell (even separately) a non-keyboard “flap” that could be used in situations where only a case is needed. Perhaps the flap could even have a magnetic wrap to hold the Apple Pencil when closed.

I have had both and definitely prefer the fixed on one. The detachable one can get annoying as it detaches when you don't want to... definitely not an upgrade.
