Logitech’s iPad Crayon and Case are something Apple should’ve made

"Logitech Announces Companion Accessories for New 9.7" iPad

Logitech's new "Crayon" is compatible with the new 9.7-inch iPad, but at $50, only costs half the retail price of the Apple Pencil.

Apple today announced a cheaper, Logitech-made stylus for its iPad family of devices called Crayon. That makes the iPad/Rugged Combo pairing decidedly pricier than a Chromebook (you can easily find educational Chromebooks under $300), but Apple and Logitech are no doubt betting that the touch-native interface will be worth it in some classes. This means the Crayon will work just as well as the Pencil within all the supported apps. 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. Its battery lasts 8 hours on a single charge via Apple's lightning connector.

Alongside the stylus, Apple also announced a new rugged Logitech iPad case and keyboard combo.

The detachable keyboard has been redesigned so the keycaps are pry-resistant in order to prevent keys from needing to be replaced. Its design is spill-resistant, so even the clumsiest students can not harm it. Logitech Crayon will be available for a suggested retail price of $49.99 and the Rugged Combo 2 will be available for a suggested retail price of $99.99.
