Battery-monitoring App For Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover?
May 3, 2012
There is a lot of good info about early users' reactions to the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover in an earlier thread (#1364978). I was lucky enough to get the last (only?) one at my local Best Buy today and am generally very pleased.But I noticed one odd thing (which didn't quite fit in that thread, hence this new one): you either know that the KB battery is low (<5%) from the red color of the sole status light; or you know that it is somewhere between 5 and 100%! Given the purported life of a charge -- six (yes, 6) months for an assumed 2-hr daily use -- it's not a huge deal. Still, I wondered, so I called Logitech support. The person to whom I spoke was very apologetic, but no, there is not yet any "built-in" software, and in fact phone support staff haven't yet seen the unit themselves! But as we talked on, he made an offhand suggestion: Maybe someone will write an iPad app to display the remaining battery life.So, all you iOS developers reading this (or maybe a Logitech engineer), get to work.

Apple Wireless Keyboard Vs Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard?
Apr 24, 2012
Decided to go with one of these instead of the folding ones But can't decide between these two. The apple keyboard is solid and lighter but expensive The Logitech comes with its own case and optimized for the iPad but heavier
If you support the apple, what case that's good but cheap you recommend besides a zip lock bag?
Logitech designed a beautiful Fold-Up Keyboard, and I purchased it recently. I use most common shortcuts when I write or navigate with the keyboard. In my first attempt to write, I noticed that the "select text forward word by word" does not highlight text; namely, the combination is: Shift + Option + Right Arrow. While the left selection works perfectly, even if I try to "deselect" to the right, I cannot do that since it uses the mentioned combination of keys.Do Apple branded keyboards missed this shortcut in the iPad 2?
I got a Technical Support ticket open with Logitech. At first they said that They said that:
1. The product is new and they had no idea why it does not work.
2. There was no warranty in the shortcuts, to which, I responded that their page clearly states that the shortcut works:[URL]
3. They told me to go to Best Buy and get a new keyboard. I did and it still does not work.I am about to restore my iPad to factory settings...

ZaggKeys Flex V. Logitech Tablet Keyboard (iPad 2 Version)?
Jun 25, 2012
I need an external keyboard, and have narrowed it down to the Zaggkeys Flex and the Logitech Tablet Keyboard for the iPad. I do not want a keyboard/case combination, just a separate, portable keyboard that comes in a case.Has anyone tried the Zagg keyboard and, ideally, compared it to the Logitech keyboard? The Zagg keyboard looks very nice and seems more compact and lighter (had a built-in lithium polymer battery), but I'm not interested in a really shrunken keyboard. I'm willing to carry something a little larger for easier/quicker typing. I have an Apple BT keyboard, but was interested in a keyboard with iOS function keys. (If I had to go with the Apple keyboard, I'd get the Incase Origami case for it.) But if folks think that the Apple keyboard is far superior to the other keyboards, I'd be interested in your thoughts.
IPad Mini :: Logitech Ultra-thin Keyboard Will Not Connect
Aug 21, 2014
I purchased the Logitech Ultra-thin Keyboard Mini just today to use with my iPad mini. However despite following the keyboard's setup guide exactly, I have found that the keyboard will not connect to my iPad mini at all. I have checked that both devices are fully charged and that my iPad mini is running the latest software version. I turned both devices on, checked that my iPad mini's Bluetooth feature was on, and waited for the iPad mini to pick up the keyboard on 'Devices'... and kept on waiting for about twenty minutes. When I realised it just wasn't going to connect I tried turning both devices off and on again and resetting the Bluetooth feature; again there was no luck.
Could it possibly be a problem with my iPad mini itself? Or should I just return the keyboard as a potentially fault product?
IPad 2 :: Logitech Keyboard Works Fine - Now Red Light Blinking On Top Right Hand Side
Jun 17, 2014
I have a Logitech keyboard for typing on my iPad. I have had it for a year, works fine. Now a red light is blinking on the top right hand side (beside the green light). I changed the AAA batteries but red light is not going away..
MY ipad 2 seems to be draining battery really fast - even with cover closed and after its been fully charged. I don't think it is going to sleep all the time with cover closed? How do I make sure it is sleeping?
IPad 2 :: Battery Drained To Zero In Sleep Mode With Smart Cover On
Jan 26, 2012
I have an iPad 2 which has been wonderful for the past 3 months I own it. I have a smart cover on it. This morning I woke up to find the battery fully drained. The smart cover was on it like always. It's like the sleep mode wasn't working. I also noticed after I fully charged it today that the viewing screen kept putting the images upside down, which I fixed by turning the iPad around several times. This never happened before either. What could cause the battery to drain to zero with the smart cover on it overnight? Sleep mode with the smart cover on it has always worked great before. For the record, I have auto lock on "never". I have never heard the keyboard before when I type, yet now I hear the keys clacking.
Keyboard Dock & Apple Cover - Button Back To Connector
Jul 17, 2010
Has anyone else noticed that you can't put your iPad onto the keyboard dock when it's in the Apple iPad cover? I was hoping that it would work, but the cover is just thick enough to prevent the iPad from going down onto the connector. It's rather a pain to take the iPad out of the cover because it does not slide at all well...the cover has almost a rubbery type feel to it which makes sliding difficult (which in most cases is a good thing!) By the way, I don't mean trying to put the iPad on the dock with the front case cover folded around the back...I tried with the cover just opened up to the side. Has anyone made a cutout on the bottom back so that it will fit down onto the connector?
IPad 4 :: Screen Full Of Static - Killed By Keyboard Cover?
Jul 1, 2013
I'm on my second iPad 4 as the first one was replaced by Apple with a dead screen that looked like this: [URL] .....
It initially was triggered when I pulled the ipad out of my Logitech Ultrathin keyboard cover -- when you heard the magnets click into place the screen turned to static, until eventually the screen was like that permanently.
Thing is, now my replacement iPad's screen is starting to die like this, too.
I know it's highly unlikely the keyboard cover is responsible, but it's the only constant between the two iPads so I figured I'd throw it out there.
i heard a rumor that you could hook the ipad up to the car computer and read some of the 23 peramiters of the engine. is this true? and if so does any one know what apps or software would be able to do this?
