Save $60 on the best keyboard case for your 12.9-inch iPad Pro
At this price, there's no need to get Apple's Magic Keyboard.
What makes an iPad Pro, well, pro? The ability to do everything you need and want in a convenient mobile platform. Your 12.9-inch iPad Pro has the power to be a competent mobile computer, but it won't be a laptop replacement without a bit of help from some top-tier accessories.
Everyone here at iMore agrees that picking up a great keyboard case for your iPad Pro is the best way to take your productivity to the next level. While Apple's own Magic Keyboard is great, it's also extremely expensive, which is why we couldn't be happier that the Logitech Combo Touch is $60 off for Amazon Prime Day.

The Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard Case is a versatile keyboard that is packed with features. Like the Magic Keyboard, it is powered by the iPad Pro's Smart Connector, so no charging is required. It contains a new click-anywhere trackpad, which is great for multi-touch gestures. The keyboard itself is detachable if you want to use the iPad without it. It also features a kickback stand with extra flexibility for watching a movie or TV show.
Not only is the Logitech Combo Touch one of our top picks for the best keyboard cases for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (opens in new tab) because of its features.
On the keyboard itself, the keys are all backlit and well-spaced out. There is a full row of function keys, which makes things like adjusting brightness, getting to the home screen, and more an easier task.
The trackpad is the big new addition here that your iPad Pro running iPadOS 16 is going to be able to utilize a lot. While. the trackpad itself isn't overly large; it never feels too small when you're using it. There's a nice click feel from it when you use all the gestures that you're likely used to from using a Mac. You can swipe between apps, swipe up to get back to the home screen, and more.
Protecting the actual iPad is a pretty nice case that adds a bit of bulk. The integrated Apple Pencil holder makes it convenient for storing the Pencil when not in use, and the ability to easily remove the keyboard and take the iPad somewhere with you is definitely a great feature to have.
