For those who don't know, the former is replacing the 9.7 incher as the smallest option among the Cupertino brand's new generation of tablets.
Now it wouldn't be complete without some accessories to go with it — aside from the Apple Pencil ($99) and Smart Keyboard ($159), that is. On that note, Apple is releasing a good selection of them. On top of that, Logitech is joining the party too.
Apple's 10.5-Inch iPad Pro Accessories
First up, there's the Apple Pencil Case, and it's available for $29 and in Saddle Brown, Taupe, Midnight Blue, and Black. It's used to keep your Apple Pencil ($99) safe from damage.
Next, Apple has some new polyurethane Smart Covers in store, and they'll hold customers back by $49. They come in many colors, such as Mist Blue, Pollen, Flamingo, White, Pink Sand, Midnight Blue, and Charcoal Gray.
Meanwhile, there are leather variants too, and they're available in Saddle Brown, Taupe, Midnight Blue, and Black. They up the price to $69, though.
If the Smart Covers don't cut it, then the Leather Sleeve could be just the thing. Aside from the top-quality material, what makes it stand out is its Apple Pencil holster, which means 10.5-inch iPad Pro owners can take the digital writing instrument along with them anywhere while keeping their tablet protected.
It costs $129 and comes in Saddle Brown, Taupe, Midnight Blue, and Black — just like the Apple Pencil Case and leather Smart Cover's color options.
It's also worth mentioning that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is getting some new accessories too. The polyurethane Smart Cover is priced at $59, the leather Smart Cover at $79, and the Leather Sleeve at $149.
Logitech's 10.5-Inch iPad Pro Accessories
Logitech is bringing an alternative to Apple's Smart Keyboard called the Slim Combo, among other things.
That said, the detachable keyboard is equipped with an Apple Pencil holder and comes in Black or Blue, and it's available for $129.95. The keys are backlit to boot, and because it connects via the iPad Pro's Smart Connector, it doesn't need a battery or other connectivity options, such a Bluetooth. It's even spill resistant and wipeable.
Interestingly enough, Logitech highlights four modes of the Slim Combo: typing, viewing, FaceTime, and reading. With a row of function keys at the top, it more or less aims to offer the full PC experience as much as it can.
The company isn't leaving out the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, though, offering the same features at $149.95.
Of course, there's also the Logi BASE ($99.95) in the mix, giving users the option to dock their iPad Pros, charge them via the Smart Connector, and leave their Lightning port free.
As a quick refresher, the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro is powered by a six-core A10X Fusion chip and a 12-core GPU, and it's equipped with Apple's ProMotion technology that lets refresh rates to go up to 120 Hz.
