Logitech launches covers with keyboard and trackpad for iPads; Sennheiser and Anker present news

In case you slept later today, you probably missed Apple’s explosive morning: the company turned Coronavirus into technological headlines and introduced updates to some of its product lines, such as the MacBook Air and Mac mini. The biggest news, however, came to us iPads Pro, with new camera system and updated processor.

A novelty, however, is arriving at the system level: in the iPadOS 13.4, which will be released next Tuesday (3/24), users will receive support for trackpads on the tablet, further improving productivity. Apple has already tried to cover that flank in the new tablets, launching the Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro; in the case of other products in the line, however, we still have nothing of the kind officially announced by Apple. That’s where the Logitech.

The accessories manufacturer caught the wave of news and announced the Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard Case with Trackpad (whew!), a cover with keyboard and trackpad designed for the cheapest models of the tablet – we have a version for incoming iPad (seventh generation), 10.2 inches, and another for the iPad Air (third generation), 10.5 inches.

The accessory features a full-size backlit keyboard, with a row of function keys designed specifically for actions on the iPadOS (such as access to Siri, the home screen, Spotlight and media control); the trackpad, in turn, supports the multi-touch gestures now supported by the system. The connection works through the Smart Connector of the tablets, eliminating the need for Bluetooth or a separate power source for the accessory.
