The Logitech Create is primarily built for the iPad Pro, and while Apple’s tablet is fantastically built, it is still a far cry from being a device that would ultimately replace your tablet. Nevertheless, there are a bunch of capable accessories on the market, such as this particular keyboard, that would make it closer to giving you a more laptop-like experience. So what does this iPad Pro keyboard have on offer? It has a streamlined design with backlit keyboard, and for the most part, it works.
The Logitech Create Works Really Well for the iPad Pro
While you can purchase Apple’s own Smart Keyboard for the iPad Pro, it is very expensive, and the Logitech Create is a better option for those who doesn’t want to spend a lot of cash on an accessory. In fact, Logitech’s offering is even better in some areas as compared to Apple’s own keyboard for the iPad Pro. It has a Smart Connector that works really well, which also makes it good enough to be permanently connected (if you wish) to Apple’s tablet.
The Create even has a little Pencil-holding loop found at the back, and the overall feel and experience when typing with the keyboard is great. But it doesn’t mean that it automatically pushes Apple’s Smart Keyboard out of the way. So which of the two keyboards is the better option? While both keyboards are great, the deciding factor is how much are you willing to spend on an accessory for the iPad Pro.
But what’s the difference between the two keyboards? Aside from the price, Logitech’s keyboard has an extra row of shortcut keys. This is a feature in which Apple’s Smart Keyboard ultimately lacks. Furthermore, the backlight will automatically turn on once you hit any key, and it won’t stay on for more than a few seconds, which is a simple but neat feature, especially when you want to conserve battery life. The keyboard does feel a bit more cramped as compared to typing with an 11-inch laptop, but it’s still easy to type on it.
If there is a problem with the Logitech Create, that would have to be with its strange bulk. It does fold to make for a protective case for your iPad Pro, however it makes the entire package thicker. Furthermore, opening the case like a book cover is a bit awkward. However, everything feels nice and secure, which is good. Ultimately, this iPad Pro keyboard will satisfy many, but it does fall short on some areas that would otherwise make it the best in its class.
