Logitech Crayon and Rugged Combo 2 enhance the iPad (2018) experience

Logitech has announced two new accessories for the newly announced Apple iPad. It has a battery life of 8-hours and can last a full day of use.

Unlike the Apple Pencil. the rubber cap is tethered to the stylus.

Apple and Logitech also used the presentation as an opportunity to reveal a new ruggedly-designed Logitech-branded iPad case that will suit the company's updated low-price hardware.

Both Logitech accessories will become available to US schools and school districts in the summer.

Though Apple's Pencil remains an option, 6th-generation iPad owners will be able to buy Logitech's Crayon, a stylus with a $49 price tag that will be made available directly to educators starting this summer. The keyboard is spill-resistant too, so it won't be ruined if a Capri Sun is spilled on it. It offers both tilt support and palm rejection and works with the same apps as the Apple device.

The detachable keyboard has been redesigned so the keycaps are pry-resistant in order to prevent keys from needing to be replaced.

The case has a built-in kickstand that can prop-up the iPad at various angles and four viewing modes: typing mode, viewing mode, notebook mode and travel mode. It also features a pencil holder that's a ideal fit for Logitech Crayon or Apple Pencil, so students always have the tools they need at hand.

In Logitech's words, it's "an affordable solution" for students so that they can take handwritten notes, draw and illustrate, and create diagrams.

What else makes this $99 Rugged Combo 2 so special? More than 35 years ago, Logitech started connecting people through computers, and now it's a multi-brand company designing products that bring people together through music, gaming, video and computing.
