The keyboards for the 11-inch model and the 12.5-inch model have similar functions. Aside from offering protection to the front, back, and corners, the keyboard has a click-anywhere drawer for greater freedom and control. It also offers gestures like multi-touch, swipe, tap, pinch, as well as scrolling. The Logitech keyboard has Smart Connector technology that does not need to be paired.
Logitech Combo Touch comes with a 50 degree pull-out kickstand that helps users in typing, watching movies and / or sketching. The backlight of the 16 keys has a level of brightness that automatically adjusts to the user’s environment. The brightness levels can also be manually adjusted. The keyboard also gets a full suite of iPadOS shortcut keys, including volume and media controls.
Logitech claims to be the largest trackpad the company has designed for a keyboard case, and this is its thinnest keyboard case with a trackpad yet. The keyboard has a woven outer fabric. The cover also has an open side to charge Apple Pencil. The Logitech Combo Touch keyboard comes with an auto on / off feature.
