My favorite thin keyboard accessory for the iPad has always been the. It's not necessarily because it was the best-looking, or the most feature-packed, but it felt the best to type on, and took up the least amount of space in my bag.
A revised version of the Logitech Ultrathin for iPad Air is now available, with a pretty unexciting and identical name: the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air. Yeah, it's a mouthful. It costs the same ($100, £75, AU$100), and looks largely the same. But there are some key differences. First, it finally lets you adjust the tilt of an while typing. Second, it has a new row of specific iOS-related hotkeys. Third, it has a different latch design.
None of these are enough to ditch the last Ultrathin for the new one, unless you really crave that angle-tilt. What struck me most was that this Ultrathin keyboard really doesn't feel so ultra-thin anymore...or quite so special.
I can't help but notice how much plastic is involved with this Logitech keyboard, especially compared with the mostly metal body of the. The Logitech Ultrathin now feels a tiny bit cheap in the way it's built. The magnetic hinge on the side, which used to be metal, is now a slide-up flap of plastic. It pops up when the Air is near and grips onto its side, but it's not as automatic-feeling anymore, or as sturdy. It does eliminate the flippy-flappy metal hinge dangling off the side of the older Ultrathin keyboard, though.
