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

Downtown Chicago and a tour boat are reflected

The Crayon has a flatter, safety-focused design that could make it a better fit for younger students using the new iPad. The updated Rugged Combo 2 offers unmatched protection for iPad and the keyboard is a secure solution for testing and exams.

Today is a huge day for Apple fans - a new iPad! Both accessories are designed for school students keeping with the theme of the new iPad.

Logitech (NASDAQ:LOGI) announces the Logitech Crayon stylus as a cheaper alternative to the Apple Pencil.

Logitech Crayon works with an incredibly wide variety of apps and software already used in classrooms, including Apple's updated Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, Microsoft Office and Explain Everything, giving students the ability to take handwritten notes, add sketches, diagrams and illustrations to projects, markup PDFs and more. Of course, it has a loop to hold the Logitech Crayon. The stylus charges using a Lightning charger and lasts 8 hours before needing recharged, but take note: it doesn't support pressure.

The Logitech Rugged Combo 2 is a rugged case designed for students from K-12.


The Rugged Combo 2 is powered by a connected iPad, so it never needs to be charged. They're also silent, so tapping away on an iPad won't disturb other nearby students.

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. That makes the iPad/Rugged Combo pairing decidedly pricier than a Chromebook (you can easily find educational Chromebooks under $300), but Apple and Logitech are no doubt betting that the touch-native interface will be worth it in some classes.

Price: Crayon is $49 and the Pencil is $99. Interested education groups can visit this website for more information.

Both Logitech accessories will become available to USA schools and school districts in the summer. All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners. Brands of Logitech include Ultimate Ears, Jaybird, Logitech G and ASTRO Gaming.
