Apple updated its inbound iPad in September 2019. While retaining the Apple A10 Fusion processor, increased the screen size to 10.2″ and added support for the Smart Keyboard , the company’s official keyboard-wielding sleeve powered by the Smart Connector . However, it is possible to use third-party keyboards and sleeves if Apple’s does not convince us.
One of the manufacturers that usually launches proposals for all iPad models that come to market is ZAGG. At CES ( Consumer Electronic Show ) 2020, ZAGG announced its new collection of keyboard sleeves for the seventh-generation iPad.
The keyboard sleeves that the manufacturer announced at the show are now available for other iPad models. The ZAGG Slim Book Go consists of two parts, one of which has a slot for the Apple Pencil and the other, which is for the backlit keyboard and is paired via Bluetooth, can be removed. Its price is $99.99.
The ZAGG Rugged Messenger also costs $99.99, but this keycase focuses more on protection against bumps and falls of up to two meters. Finally, and most economically, the ZAGG Messenger Folio . For $59.99 we have a case with a keyboard but without backlighting. The date of release is still unknown, as Cult of Mac points out. Unfortunately, the key layout is most likely not in Spanish.
It has also announced two new Gear4 sleeves
Gear4 is a subsidiary of Zagg that also specializes in manufacturing accessories for mobile devices. Gear4’s offerings differ from Zagg’s in that do not have a keyboard, but are just sleeves .
The Battersea offers resistance to falls of up to almost two and a half metres and integrates a screen protector, as well as a foot to support the iPad on a surface and consume multimedia content comfortably. Although it doesn’t include a keyboard, Zagg ensures that it is fully compatible with the Apple Smart Keyboard. It is priced at $79.99 and will be available in black

On the other hand there is the Brompton , with a somewhat more modest protection (resistance to falls of up to two meters), although it also comes with a stand for watching films at three different angles. At a cost of $49.99, it will be available in black or pink gold.
Gear4’s sleeves, as outlined in ZAGG’s press release, will be available to the public via the brand’s website next February with a lifetime warranty.
