Logitech has whipped up an Apple-specific version of its affordable multi-device keyboard, with the K380 for Mac designed to easily integrate with your Mac, iPad, or iPhone. Based on the venerable K380 wireless keyboard that Logitech first launched all the way back in 2015, this new version targets those who have gone all-in on Apple's software.
Dell announced a bunch of new products centered around PC gaming today, and whether you game on a laptop or on a desktop, there's some kind of product aimed at you. Dell's new PC gaming products include a pair of gaming laptops, two new monitors, a desktop, and an Alienware mechanical keyboard. The company also teased the new XPS Desktop, but we're not going to learn specifics about that for awhile yet.
Accessories company Targus has teamed with Samsung to launch a keyboard case for its new Galaxy Tab S6 Lite tablet. The model was launched in April as a mid-range offering, one that can be used for ordinary tablet activities in addition to sketching. That tablet doesn't ship with a cover, but Samsung is offering a standalone option from Targus.
Last year, Logitech rolled out its G915 Lightspeed wireless gaming keyboard. Today, it's back with a new version of the keyboard that seems mostly the same as the last save one major difference: this new version of the G915 is a tenkeyless model. If you're the type who likes to drop the number pad to save some space, then Logitech is targeting you with this new launch.
Apple's new Magic Keyboard accessory for the iPad Pro is a curious thing in more ways than one. While many will naturally focus on the message that Apple is trying to send in making the iPad Pro a veritable MacBook competitor, others like iFixit are more entranced by what goes inside. Going beyond X-Rays, the teardown experts make their first entry into the mobile Magic Keyboard and already discovered a few treasures along the way.
What goes into a keyboard cover accessory? Most will probably think just the keycaps, membranes for the keys, and electronics needed to power up and connect the keyboard. That may be true for simple external keyboards but, even in appearance, the new Magic Keyboard for the latest iPad Pros is anything but simple. And thanks to the wonders of modern technologies like X-Ray, we can also see that it is true even inside.
Microsoft has two new docking stations to announce today, the Surface Dock 2 and the USB-C Travel Hub, and it's hoping they'll be enough to distract you from the new Surface Book 3's missing port. Tapping into the growing number of people wanting access to desktop peripherals but without having to plug in and unplug their laptop each and every time, the two hubs are also joined by a pair of desktop keyboard and mouse sets.
Smartphones have become so powerful these days that you can use it for almost everything. You can even use a desktop on it, either through remote access or some Linux-based magic. Smartphones, however, will always be limited not just by the hardware they have inside but also their size. You can, of course, always attach a peripheral like a keyboard but one of OPPO's latest patents means you won't have to carry around a separate one with you. Presuming, of course, you're willing to bulk up your phone with a case.
IBM's ThinkPad has been one of the most iconic names in the laptop market and its keyboard is just as memorable both for its quality as well as its red nub. Some fans love that keyboard to the point they wished they could use one even on their desktops or when their actual ThinkPads are docked and away from reach. That's why Lenovo created its line of external ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboards, the latest of which takes a step forward but also bids farewell to a long-time staple feature.
It’s been several days and a whole lot of typing since Apple's Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro landed on my doorstep, and I’m already thinking about version 2. How can Apple make a great keyboard and trackpad even greater? Well, short of buying Brydge and building in the advantages of its Pro+ keyboard, I'd say there are five main things Apple could improve on. Here's what I'm hoping Apple changes for the next Magic Keyboard.
It’s safe to say that I’ve waited 10 years for a proper iPad keyboard accessory from Apple. Was the wait for the Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro worth it? Absolutely. It's probably better to be late to the game but have a solid product, than to deliver something that’s mediocre - I’m looking at you, Folio Keyboard - though I can't help but wish it hadn't quite taken a whole decade to arrive.
