Logitech has announced the availability of its new CREATE Keyboard Case for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Like it’s larger 12.9-inch sibling, the CREATE Keyboard Case offers a protective case, backlit keyboard, and integrated holder for the Apple Pencil all in one lightweight package.
The CREATE is designed to work with the iPad Pro Smart Connector, so the backlit keyboard case automatically powers up and pairs with your iPad Pro when the case is in the typing position. This means, there are no worries about Bluetooth pairing, or charging, as the backlit keyboard is powered by the iPad Pro, via the Smart Connector.
The CREATE Keyboard Case includes a special row of dedicated iOS shortcut keys, to allow executing iOS commands without your fingers ever leaving the keyboard. The keys allow users to jump to the home screen, search via Spotlight, adjust screen brightness, and control audio and video playback. The CREATE also includes an integrated holder for the Apple Pencil, which is handy for folks like me, who keep losing the darn thing.
The CREATE for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro includes the same features and design as the CREATE for the larger iPad Pro, just on a scale matching the baby Pro. The CREATE Keyboard Case for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is available today in Black and Blue from Logitech and Apple for a suggested retail price of $129.99.
