Logitech is back with an updated keyboard case for the iPad Air. The Type+ offers well-spaced keys and a dedicated row with iOS specific shortcuts.
Along with a keyboard, the folio case offers complete protection for an iPad Air. The outer fabric of the Type+ is made with liquid repellent and will help protect the tablet from accidental spills.
Connecting to an iPad via Bluetooth, the keyboard automatically connects when the cover is opened and will shut back off when it is closed. With an average use of two hours per day, the built-in battery can go for up to three months before needing to be recharged.
The case can also be placed in flat position with the keyboard under the iPad Air.
Buyers can select from two different colors of the case – a black or red version. It retails for $99.99 and can be preordered from Logitech’s site now. Orders are expected to ship this month.
