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

Apple wants to attract millennial consumers with low-priced iPads

At half the price, the Crayon is a great alternative to the Apple Pencil, if you're okay with the chunkier design. It also works with apps such as Numbers, Keynote, Apple Pages and Microsoft Office. "We've brought years of design expertise into the classroom with Logitech Crayon and Rugged Combo 2, which take advantage of the new iPad's capabilities".

Logitech's Digital Crayon and the Rugged Combo 2 case is using technology from Apple, so essentially the accessory maker is the unofficial supplier of iPad accessories for education. That will allow students to markup PDFs and add sketches to documents, along with other functionality. The keyboard is connected via a proprietary smart connector to the iPad case with magnets, which hooks up to Apple's Lightning port via the main part of the case. According to Logitech, it's specifically created to withstand the wear and tear experienced in K-12 classrooms and puts a range of features within easy access with "one-click" pairing. "Beyond the obvious, these devices are also an opportunity to combat the forces of Google, who just yesterday announced the company's very first Chrome OS tablet, the Acer Chromebook Tab 10, a 10" tablet aimed at the education market that comes with its own Wacom-branded stylus and will reportedly sell for $329. They're also silent, so tapping away on an iPad won't disturb other nearby students. The updated Rugged Combo 2 offers unmatched protection for iPad and the keyboard is a secure solution for testing and exams.

The Logitech Crayon will retail for $49.99 when it launches, and the Rugged Combo 2 will start at $99.99. It'll be interesting to see if any other third party companies will release similar education accessories for iPad. Wider retail availability for non-educator consumers isn't now clear. More information about the accessories is available on Logitech's website.
