Logitech Slim Folio Pro for iPad Pro 11 and 12,9 inch Review
Logitech Slim Folio Pro Manual Setup and Review for iPad Pro – Logitech has released accessories for iPad Pro users under the name Logitech Slim Folio Pro. This product is a combination of the Folio Case and also the Keyboard Case, which was previously named Logitech Create in 2016, which was designed for the first generation 12.9 inch iPad Pro.
Logitech Slim Folio Pro is available in 2 versions, namely for iPad Pro with a screen size of 11 inches and a screen size of 12.9 inches. It has a slight difference in size, but still presents the same features between the two. With solid and elegant material, the iPad Pro case provides complete protection on the front and back sides when closed.
Unlike Logitech Create or other case-keyboard combo products that use Smart Connector connections, this product comes with a Bluetooth connection. But you don’t need to think about the battery, Logitech claims the Slim Folio Pro product has a meager battery power that can even be used for up to 3 months. The Bluetooth technology used by Slim Folio Pro is Bluetooth Low Energy, which can save battery life but supports fast connections when the device will be used again at another time.
Like most keyboards with technology today, this product also has a backlit to help the needs of its users. So with the backlit, you can still type in the night or a room with low light but yet comfortable using it.
Enjoy in Any Mode
Logitech Slim Folio Pro can be used in 3 modes or three positions as needed. First is the Type Mode to use it while typing on the keyboard. Second is Sketch Mode, which makes it a little more relaxed and comfortable for drawing with Apple Pencil 2. Last is the Read Mode, which used for reading at a more comfortable angle. For more details about the setup of this product, you can see it in the Logitech Slim Folio Pro manual setup link that I have provided below.
Equipped with a row of iOS shortcut keys, you can quickly access the keyboard keys in Logitech Slim Folio Pro to substitute for ways to access Home, screen brightness, Search mode, and so on. In addition, there is a perforated side to the right that designed to attach Apple Pencil 2 to the magnet so you can easily pick it up or place it.
For the price, the Logitech Slim Folio Pro is priced around $ 119 for the 11-inch one and $ 129 for the 12.9-inch one. If you are interested in this keyboard, you can directly visit the official website of Logitech or other market places to place an order. A little reference or as a comparison, Apple Smart Keyboard Folio is sold at $ 179. So, with similar features, Slim Folio Pro is cheaper than the original Apple products designed specifically for the iPad pro.
