  • Logitech announces Rugged Combo 2 case and Crayon stylus for the new iPad

The device, announced onstage at Apple's iPad-focused education event in Chicago this morning, will cost $49. It also works with apps such as Numbers, Keynote, Apple Pages and Microsoft Office.

Joining the Crayon is the Logitech Rugged Combo 2, a durable case that helps protect the iPad while also offering a keyboard for a more traditional laptop-like experience. This includes an affordable Apple Pencil alternative and a rugged case with keyboard. It has a battery life of 8-hours and can last a full day of use.

Logitech has announced a pair of accessories for the newly announced 6th-generation iPad: the Logitech Crayon and Logitech Rugged Combo 2.


Designed with input from educators, administrators and IT specialists, the updated Rugged Combo 2 case and keyboard combo is created to take on daily wear and tear inside K-12 classrooms.

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. Manufactured by Logitech and endorsed by Apple, the Crayon is a white-and-orange stylus that will allow younger users (children of all ages, if you will) an easy way to interact with all of the hottest iPad software. It is more than just a protective enclosure, since it also comes with a detachable keyboard. They're also silent, so tapping away on an iPad won't disturb other nearby students.

The Logitech Rugged Combo 2 and Crayon are priced at $99.99 and $49.99, respectively, and will be available for purchase to schools and school districts in the USA starting this summer. Both will be available directly from Apple around summer time. It is not clear if home consumers outside of education will be able to buy them. 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.
