It’s no secret that Logitech has the best keyboard layout for the iPad. The company put a lot of effort into creating a comfortable typing experience and it is reflected in their products.

Apple’s newest addition to the iPad line came out just a few months ago. We wanted to save a special spot on our list to include Logitech’s case, made especially for the largest iPad on the market. It is similar to the Type+, but its larger design makes iPad typing even more like a Mac laptop. It also has backlit keys for low-light typing and features iOS specific action keys. It is available on Amazon for $150 (although it is out of stock at the time of this writing).

    Wait…. So you’re telling me that the BrydgeAir didn’t even make this list? Shame, shame, shame. Best detachable keyboard option I’ve put my own two hands on.

      Not a keyboard case… Just a keyboard… Perhaps just a special mention needed?

      • Trey

        The whole basis of a “keyboard case” is to attach a keyboard to the iPad itself, which is exactly what the BrydgeAir does. If those who purchased these things wanted a case option for protecting their iPad, they’re not getting actual protection from it other than from scratches. I stand behind my previous mention.

    Logitech Type+ scratched my iPad Air 2 screen. I have been dealing with Logitech’s warranty for a month now with no resolution yet.
