    Excellent Keyboard Case for iPad Mini

    This is by far the best keyboard case I have had for an iPad Mini, having had various iterations since I got mine when the first one launched all those years ago. Upgrading to the Mini 4 prompted a new case, and Logi(tech) did not disappoint. The keyboard holds its charge for a good amount of time, and the magnetic seal is just strong enough to keep it closed, without making it impossible to open. The key action also feels surprisingly solid, and I was able to acclimate to the tighter space more easily than I did on my 9" netbook of old. It also rarely disconnects from the iPad, and doesn't suffer the input lag that other Bluetooth keyboards I've owned have suffered. The case also feels solid, gripping my iPad tightly and doing a very good job of protecting it (while it's no Otterbox, it feels incredibly secure for a plastic-and-canvas clamshell case). It also has a very low profile, which maintains the appeal of the iPad mini in general. It's important to note that you should only purchase this case if you have an iPad Mini 4. The footprint has changed between versions, and it won't fit right if you have an older version (I originally purchased the version for the Mini 3, and my Mini 4 wouldn't fit). The only complaints are minor: the size of the keyboard requires a pretty specific positioning to type comfortably--trying to type on my lap or any uneven surface had proven challenging. Further, the case is not conducive to holding the iPad as may be required for some games (playing the port of FFVII has taken adjustment, and FNaF 1 currently requires the iPad to be upside down relative to the orientation of the case). The case does not have any way to secure itself open in any configuration besides the one shown, so you'll need to hold it open for those things--thankfully, it is light and thin enough to where this doesn't represent too much additional effort. All in all, this is a great case, and I will be sad if it does not work for the next version of the iPad Mini I purchase.

    Premature Failure and Design Defect

    We had this product for approximately 2 years when it failed—the cover detached from the frame that attaches to the iPad Mini. As a consequence, the cover will not stay on the iPad and the stand feature of the cover is inoperable. We did not subject the product of any abnormal or unusual uses or stresses. I complained to Logitech, but they refused to rectify the issue because they said that the product was past the one year warranty period. However, it should be noted that, in reviewing reviews of this product both here on the BB website and on the Amazon website, there are numerous reports of exactly the same failure of this product as we experienced—in more than one case within the first week after purchase and in others within a period of months. So it would appear that the product has a fundamental design defect. We have purchased other Logitech products and, because of their unwillingness to rectify this problem, we will not likely purchase any more Logitech products.

    Not bad, but also not worth the price

    I had high hopes for this keyboard case, and it does work well for typing on the iPad mini. It does pair quickly and uses little power. It's appropriately small --you can't write a PhD thesis on it, but it does the job. That's where the pros stop. The major shortcoming is that while the keyboard folds backwards, there is no protective cover for the keyboard, or any way to make it comfortable to hold. So if you want to read, you either have to hold the case like a book (keyboard on one side, iPad on the other, but it's unbalanced and the iPad flops around), or fold it behind the iPad and be mangling the keyboard and constantly adjusting it to try to stabilize the iPad while you read. Using Logitech's website to get questions answered and try to register the product was nothing short of infuriating. I've gone back to using my ancient Brookstone cover and only pulling this one out when I know I'll be typing and am willing to put up with the inconvenience of removing the iPad (and reinstalling it in the Brookstone cover) to read. Don't waste your money.

    What I Needed

    I tend to type long emails as well as long responses on Social Media. As a result, using an on-screen keyboard is not my favorite option. My iPad mini 4 is my favorite of four iPads I have ( easy to take on the go), so I started looking for a keyboard to accompany it. Overall, the Logi FOCUS Keyboard Folio Case does not disappoint. I love the touch of the keyboard ( although my big fingers occasionally delete what I am typing because I hit the wrong key). I like that my right arm does not become fatigued as it does with an on- screen keyboard. The downside? I had to give up my lovely floral iPad cover. More importantly, I had to figure out a way to stabilize the keyboard and iPad when I type on my lap. I have found a pillow helps to keep the iPad more secure on my lap when I use the keyboard. So far, the magnet seems strong enough although the mini now is heavier to carry around and a bit cumbersome when I do not use the keyboard. Overall, the keyboard is what I needed to type efficiently. So far, I am happy with the purchase.

    Good comfy keyboard

    The larger ipads have a nice roomy keyboard and was looking for something like that for my iPad mini 4. But given the smaller size I was worried that the keyboard would be too tiny for my fingers. That said, I'm very happy with the product. I consider myself average in size (not super tall nor short person so believe my hands are accordingly proportional) and was very comfortable using the keyboard itself. It connects via bluetooth and get great battery life out of it. I'm not a heavy writer on the ipad so haven't tested this to see how many hours it goes. But I haven't chargedi t since I bought it and it's been almost 2 weeks so far. Emphasis on not being a heavy user of writing on the ipad but I like having the keyboard for texting people back or general web browsing when I'm on my ipad. Overall, I think it's a good product overall and am happy with it.

    Provides a nice case AND keyboard for the iPad mini IV. Only fault is that you have to carry around an extra charger when traveling to recharge the keyboard. It also makes the iPad about twice as thick as well. Sadly, Apple have no keyboard shortcuts for its’ Zoom magnifier as well, still requiring screen gestures to perform magnification changes or turning Zoom off or on. Cursor tracking isn’t consistent either. Also, keyboard must be used on a pretty flat, level surface. Better turn keyboard off, if you’re going to use the iPad in tablet mode, with the keyboard folded around the back, to prevent accidental letter pushes. Definitely adds productivity.

    Superior keyboard for iPad Mini 4

    Having used several different keyboards out there since the inception of the iPad Mini, Logitech is consistently ahead of the pack. Now with the Mini 4 being sized differently and requiring a new keyboard folio, I went right for the Focus and was not disappointed. Key spacing is awesome, key depth feels spot on, and the case offers protection like none other. Best feature - control button access for volume is perfect and not awkward. This is the "must have" accessory for your new iPad Mini 4.

    Great iPad Mini 4 Cover/Keyboard

    The Logitec keyboard cover fits perfectly, is light weight, is easy to set up and the keyboard works great. It has it's own battery charger. I turn off the keyboard when not using it to save batter power. However the keyboard battery seems to last a long time before needing to be charged. Be aware that the box and website description say that a user manual is included. There is no manual but if you go on the Logitec website you can access it. If you prefer a real keyboard vs the touch screen, I recommend this case for your iPad mini 4.

    I bought this for my iPad mini 4 because I wanted an actual keyboard. It's a little small, but so is my iPad mini 4. It's pretty easy to use even with its size. It looks and feels like very good quality and also gives my iPad great protection. You can tell this company took great pride in designing and manufacturing this product. They say the charge lasts like 6 months. I haven't had it that long but so far the charge is holding up good (I believe I've had it a few months now). It may be too small for a man with big hands/fingers? (I am an adult female).

    Worth the extra cost for the keyboard

    I am absolutely thrilled with the Logitech- Logi Focus case with keyboard. I will tell you that is 1000% worth the extra money to get this version with the keyboard built in verses the model without the keyboard because for the extra $20 dollars I spent on this model with the keyboard I would never been able to find a quality Bluetooth keyboard for under $20 with built in rechargeable battery that last a long time. I love the fact that the keyboard charge last an extremely long time under normal use compared to other keyboards and I have have only half to charge it 2 or 3 times in almost 2 months verses other brands products.

    Another Logitech Keyboard

    With the purchase of a new iPad comes the necessity for another keyboard case. It works well thus far, and seems to be more sturdy than previous models. I may be premature in my assessment. Before this purchase, we had purchased at least 5 Logitech keyboards for a two iPad home. They have each worked well until the plastic frame that holds the iPad breaks. These have historically been VERY poorly designed, but I hope this one lasts longer. Always get the extended protection on these because you more rent them than buy them. My recommendation is guarded as a consequence.

    I wasn’t sure I needed a keyboard with my mini and got talked into one. It’s holding up well, no tears or breaks. I personally think I would have been better off with a plain case. Flipping it back and forth to not be holding it by the keyboard is a bit cumbersome. That being said, it does have an on off switch so I’m not typing without meaning too. The case is sturdy, comfortable to hold, and stands well when in stand mode.

    I have used many Logitech items. This one however is so compact you have to give up some keys and I don't like that. Tab is difficult to use and the shift keys are awkward to navigate. I type 120 wpm so this is a big problem for me. Still I am happy that Logitech makes a keyboard for the iPad mini. The apple ones are too expensive for me. I absolutely love the protection from the hard case and that it folds fully backward to lay the screen over the keyboard without pressing on the keys when only in swipe or viewing mode. I can give to get.

    One of the nicest features of the keyboard is the tactile sensation, with Apple friendly keys. I like it much better than the generic Bluetooth Zagg keyboard I purchased to fit my Acer and iPad mini the last time around. The case itself is also much more sturdy, and protects the mini well. The fit is perfect, and it stays closed while dropping to the ground (2 for 2 so far). My daughter has already inadvertently tested it out twice, and her Mimi's still working fine. A good buy, I'll purchase another one for myself when I find the right color (blue) in the store.

    I purchased a keyboard case for my iPad air and I was very satisfied with the product they made but this one however, I like the design and the look of it but the instructions on how use the keyboard for the cap option on the keyboard was hard to use when typing. Secondly, I wish it could auto-sync when I clip the keyboard with the ipad mini. I had no problem with the logitech keyboard case for the air, but for this mini I had to manually go to setting and bluetooth and connect it...

    Good easy to use and charge. I have a glass protector on iPad to protect it from keys when case is closed. A bit of time getting used to having your hands almost touching to type. It’s small compared to laptop or computer. Only have it for 2 weeks love it but just need to get used to it. Turn it off to flip the keyboard behind it and use without keyboard. Love magnetic iPad holder, I was hoping it would stand up enough to record but it rest at a bad angle for that

    Key fell off

    This seemed pretty good at first but one of the keyboard keys fell off within 2 weeks of owning this. I don’t even know how it happened. I guess just from moving it around because it didn’t happen while using it. I didn’t use it very much so there’s no reason for this. I returned it. Maybe I got a lemon but I’m not going to risk it and will be getting a case without a keyboard.

    Decent case, keyboard takes time getting used to

    I bought this because I needed something that would prop up my ipad when I was typing for work or watching netflix. The angle is best for when you're sitting at a table -- it doesn't stay put very well on an uneven surface like in bed. The keyboard takes some getting used to, especially accessing the function keys... and some of the smaller sized keys are ones that I find myself using a lot (and therefore missing). Still, it's better than many keyboards that I tried, and the fact that it's a cover/keyboard instead of a standalone helps.

    Excellent keyboard but too close to screen

    Purchased this keyboard on sale to replace my Zagg keyboard case for the iPad Mini 4. Keyboard works very well. However, the keyboard is very close to the screen where the function key row butts up to the screen. I cannot type on that row and have to use a small pointer. The overall case is very nice and quite usable. If you are a heavy typer like me, this case may not 100% work well for you.

    Bought this for my son. I can't imagine you can make a comfortably sized keyboard that fits an ipad mini. It's small, and tough for my big man hands to type on, but my son's little 11-year-old hands seem to work fine. Works well as a protective case, too. But if you want to use the onscreen keyboard, you have to completely detach the thing, which is a little annoying, but I think it's an iOS thing, not a case thing. Set up and pairing were easy. No issues.
