  1. While I am a fan of most things Apple, I HATE the smart keyboard! I have never made so many typos as when I’m using that keyboard.

    I stumbled on a review of the Logitech slim combo case – decided to give it a try, and am glad I did!

    PROs: Smart connector, full backlit keys and disconnectable. The back case also includes a loop for Apple Pencil, and the kick stand allows for any angle viewing.
    CONs: the back case is a little clunky.

    No more typos, leave the keyboard behind when you want, and no worries about dead batteries / recharging.
