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

Logitech Rugged Combo 2 Crayon Stylus Launched for iPad

Along with a newer low-priced iPad and other education-focused platforms, Apple teamed up with Logitech to introduce two new accessories for its tablet lineup at its March 27 education event in Chicago. With an 8-hour battery life, the Logitech Crayon can go a full school day before it requires charging. Both devices were designed specifically for use in the classroom and are arguably vital for it, the first being a stylus for children that is only about half the cost of Apple's Pencil; the second is a durable case with a keyboard and kickstand. To ensure the highest levels of protection and durability, the Rugged Combo 2 protects iPad from bumps, scratches and drops of up to four feet.

In addition to the crayon, Logitech is also releasing a $99 USD Rugged Combo 2 case for the iPad that includes a detachable keyboard and a slot for the stylus. Like the case, the Crayon also has a rugged design that should survive better with the kids than the dainty Apple Pencil.

In order to make the most out of the software as well as the iPad's new user-friendly price point, Apple also revealed a rugged iPad case and a brand-new stylus called the Crayon.

Both Logitech accessories will become available to USA schools and school districts in the summer. Crayon does have support for tilt, though, with Logitech saying it also offers low latency and "sub-pixel precision".

In Logitech's words, it's "an affordable solution" for students so that they can take handwritten notes, draw and illustrate, and create diagrams.

Schools in the United States will be able to purchase the case and stylus starting this summer; Crayon is priced at $49.99 and the Rugged Combo 2 at $99.99 USD. More information about the accessories is available on Logitech's website. Founded in 1981, and headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, Logitech International is a Swiss public company listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange (LOGN) and on the Nasdaq Global Select Market (LOGI).
