If you own an Apple iPad Pro, we can guess that you are a productivity driven person. With the 9.7-inch version of the productivity-centric tablet, Apple made productivity even more accessible on the go. If you own the iPad Pro as well you would know that there are plenty of keyboard and case solutions out there that may or may not fit your bill in terms of usage and needs. With the iPad Pro 9.7 you would already have a hard time making a decision on purchasing a new keyboard or case for your beloved device. Now though your decision just got tougher with a new addition from Logitech.
Logitech just released their new CREATE keyboard case for the iPad Pro 9.7. This may be the iPad Pro 9.7 case that you have been waiting for though. In its basic form, it is a case integrated with a Logitech keyboard paired to the device. The case acts also as a protective cover against impacts, scratches, drops, or other foreseeable hazards to your beloved device. Like plenty of other cases also it still allows access to all buttons and plugin inlets of the device.
Unlike other keyboards though this connects to your device via Apple’s new Smart Connector, not Bluetooth; which means also that the keyboard is powered up via your device as well. No extra charging required, not extra batteries to be worried about. Once you set the case up with the iPad Pro inserted the keyboard turns on whenever you prop up the iPad Pro in your preferred viewing position. The keyboard is backlit too so that you can see what you are typing in low light conditions.
Own the Apple Pencil? Do not know how or where to put it on the go? Do not fret, for the CREATE is here! The keyboard case hybrid also includes a Pencil holder that is actually integrated with the case. Gone are the days where you keep your Pencil separately from your device. Say hello too to easy access to your Apple Pencil.
Back to the case itself. It is not just to enhance the look of your iPad Pro, or hold your keyboard in place, or hold your Apple Pencil. It is also an added protection to your beloved device. The case is specially designed for the iPad Pro 9.7 to ensure the best fit and highest structural integrity of the case. The case is made of tightly woven premium fabrics to resist all kinds of bumps, scratches and spills to keep your device working in every condition.
The CREATE for iPad Pro 9.7 is available through MCL Bhd. and Blue Logic Enterprise Sdn. Bhd. retailing at MYR599 inclusive of GST. Press Release after the break.

“CREATE is like the Swiss Army Knife of keyboard cases,” said KP Sim, Logitech Country Manager of Malaysia, Philippines and Brunei. “It puts all the tools you need at your fingertips, and the keyboard charges through the Smart Connector so you can just set your iPad Pro into a typing position and go. It brings typing on the iPad Pro to a whole new level.”
Designed to work exclusively with Apple’s new Smart Connector, the CREATE Keyboard Case automatically powers on and pairs with your iPad Pro when placed in the typing position – no Bluetooth® pairing needed. And because the backlit keyboard is powered by the iPad Pro, you never have to think about charging your keyboard again.
A special row of dedicated iOS shortcuts puts the commands at your fingertips, without ever taking them off the keyboard. You can get to the home screen, search your iPad and the web, adjust brightness, and control audio or video playback with one tap. And an integrated holder keeps your Apple Pencil within easy reach at all times so it is there when you need it.
With careful attention to color, materials and finish, the CREATE Keyboard Case design gives you all-around protection in a beautiful form. Custom-sculpted curves provide structural integrity to help protect your iPad Pro on the inside, while on the outside the tightly woven premium fabric resists bumps, scratches and spills.
The CREATE Keyboard Case for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is available beginning the end of August from MCL Bhd and Blue Logic Enterprise Sdn Bhd for a suggested retail price of RM 599, inclusive of GST. For more information, please visit Logitech.
