I get the why. The relationship between Apple and Logitech has been pretty apparent for awhile now. Apple even helped them design specific product packaging specifically for Apple stores. It’s just unfortunate that Apple is very obviously using that leverage they seem to have against Logitech with the iPad Pro keyboards to up sell us on their product.I believe Logitech is the OEM for all Apple keyboards. There’s a reason why Logitech will not be making their own branded keyboards for iPad Pro 11 is just so they dont cannibalize the sales of Magic Keyboard.
Logotech could have the license to use Apple's Smart Connector as well as to produce their own keyboards for iPad but probably not until the sales of Magic Keyboards have stabilized.
I owned Apple Smart Keyboard and Logitech Slim Folio but hated both of them. I’m into my 3rd Smart Keyboard now and the folding connector part is almost done by now, while the Slim Folio is just too thick and too heavy for my liking.
My new Logitech Combo Touch may just stop me from upgrading to an iPad Pro 11 for now, at least until they bring out the iPad with Mini-LED later this year
