Logitech announces thinner, lighter range of Folios and keyboard cases for new iPad Air

Hot on the heels of Apple's upgraded iPad announcements Logitech has revealed its new range of cases that fit the new kit by also being thinner and lighter.

The first is the Logitech Folio Protective case for iPad Air, much like the previous iPad Mini Folio, meaning it protects both sides of your iPad with a water-repellent skin, features SecureLock and doubles as a stand with many angles. This will cost £40.

Three keyboard cases are also available soon. One is called the FabricSkin Keyboard Folio for iPad Air which has keys fused into the material of the case complete with iOS shortcuts, uses Bluetooth and also offer SecureLock for quick release. The keyboard will automatically shut off so you don't hit keys by mistake. This will cost £130.

The Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air offers front protection with a keyboard built into the case - this model doesn't offer rear protection. But it does have all the features of the FabricSkin except with a full-sized keys that can be charged via micro-USB and lasts up to three months on a charge. This will also cost £90.

The new Ultrathin Keyboard Folio for iPad Air. This new case offers front and rear protection for the iPad Air and also comes with a Bluetooth keyboard. It's capable of a three-month battery life based on two hours use a day. The new frame makes it lighter and thinner and also allows for easy removal of the device itself with a handy lock button. There are two positions the case offers, one for typing and one for use as a flat tablet. When the case is folded the keyboard can't be touched accidentally,thanks to the design. Expect to pay £90 for this.
