Logitech Touch Folio for 2020 iPad Air

Today Logitech announced the Logitech Folio Touch, a flexible keyboard case with integrated trackpad for the new iPad Air (4th generation). The Folio Touch features a keyboard that can be moved and adapted to use. The Folio Touch connects to the iPad Air via the Smart Connector for direct pairing and power supply.

This is the new Logitech Touch Folio

The Folio Touch has four operating modes: typing mode, viewing mode, drawing mode, and reading mode. Dock the keyboard upright and pull out the stand to a 40 degree angle. When you no longer need to type, simply fold the keyboard back and sit back to use the new iPad Air for sketching or watching movies.

The Logitech Folio Touch has a familiar keyboard layout. There is no need to charge the accessory as the power comes directly from the iPad Air. The keyboard has a row of shortcut keys that work with iPadOS. This gives you quick access to the home screen, adjust the brightness of the keyboard lighting, control the volume and much more. In addition, the well-lit keys automatically adjust based on the room lighting.

The trackpad supports the multi-touch gestures you already know, such as swiping, scrolling, switching apps, pinch and double tap.

Folio Touch protects the corners of the new iPad Air and keeps the front and back safe from scratches and spills, while allowing access to the new Touch ID sensor integrated into the iPad Air’s top button. Logitech Folio Touch also includes a secure magnetic lock to keep the case closed, so your iPad is protected while in transit. You can store your Logitech Crayon or Apple Pencil (2nd generation) in the cover.

Price and availability

Logitech Folio Touch is expected to be available on logitech.com  and  apple.com in October 2020  .
