Logitech's iPad Crayon and Case are something Apple should've made

Dan Seifert  The VergeApple’s Greg Joswiak introduces the Logitech Crayon at Apple’s education event in Chicago

Along with a newer low-priced iPad and other education-focused platforms, Apple teamed up with Logitech to introduce two new accessories for its tablet lineup at its March 27 education event in Chicago. It can go for 8 hours of use before needing to be recharged, which can be done with a regular Lightning cable.

At the same time, Logitech is also readying a $99 Rugged Combo case for the iPad that includes a keyboard and a slot for your stylus. It is created to protect the iPad against bumps, scratches and drops from up to 4 feet high.

The keyboard physically connects to the Rugged Combo 2 case using a proprietary connector to deliver a secure keyboard connection, making iPad an approved device for testing. Specifically designed for the classroom, the Logitech Crayon digital pencil takes advantage of new technology in iPad and provides an affordable solution for education so students can do even more including handwrite notes, illustrate projects and draw diagrams.

Logitech has announced a pair of accessories for the newly announced 6th-generation iPad: the Logitech Crayon and Logitech Rugged Combo 2. The thoughtful secure-sealed design is spill-resistant and the keys are silent so as not to distract surrounding students from their work.

In order to make the most out of the software as well as the iPad's new user-friendly price point, Apple also revealed a rugged iPad case and a brand-new stylus called the Crayon.

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. Logitech says it will begin offering them to schools in the summer.

Schools in the U.S. will be able to purchase the case and stylus starting this summer; Crayon is priced at $49.99 and the Rugged Combo 2 at $99.99 United States dollars. Interested education groups can visit this website for more information.
