Jan. 15, 2016 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled its first accessories designed in collaboration with Apple to perfectly complement the aesthetics and features of the new iPad Pro™ and iPad Mini 4: the Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector and the Logitech Focus Flexible Protective Case for iPad Mini 4. The Logitech CREATE Keyboard Case is the first third-party keyboard on the market to leverage Apple’s new Smart Connector™, eliminating the need to power on, connect or charge the keyboard.
“The iPad Pro coupled with iOS 9 opens new ways to create, work and play on the tablet,” said KP Sim, Logitech Country Manager of Malaysia, Philippines and Brunei. “With this in mind, we worked closely with Apple to design the Logitech CREATE and Logitech Focus to unleash even more possibilities. This has resulted in two functional yet beautiful cases, and the best iPad keyboards we’ve ever created. From compatibility with the Apple Smart Connector to the color and finish of the keyboard, every detail was meticulously crafted to perfectly complement the iPad Pro and the iPad Mini 4.”
The Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector
Logitech CREATE offers thin and light front and back protection, and the tightly-woven premium fabric resists accidental bumps, scratches and spills. The Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is designed to work exclusively with Apple’s new Smart Connector for seamless communication between the iPad Pro and the keyboard.
Through leveraging the Smart Connector, the Logitech CREATE keyboard automatically powers on and securely connects with the iPad Pro when placed in the typing position – no Bluetooth® pairing needed. And because the keyboard is powered by the iPad Pro, you never have to think about charging your keyboard again.
The Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is built for productivity. The keyboard features full-size 19 mm keys, adjustable backlighting and an intuitive layout, helping you take full advantage of the iPad Pro’s expansive workspace and new iOS® 9 features. The iOS shortcut keys also put the power of your favorite apps at your fingertips – you can activate search and media controls without ever leaving the keyboard.
The case provides two viewing angles, so you can make the most of the iPad Pro’s big, beautiful screen whether you’re posting an update, watching videos, or using the Apple Pencil to take notes. The Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is available for a suggested retail price of MYR 699 (~US$163) inclusive of GST.

The Logitech Focus Flexible Protective Case offers full protection for the iPad Mini 4 and also serves as a stand with multiple viewing angles. The case enables users to adjust the iPad into any angle within a 50-degree range.
