There are 2 problems with the current state of iPad stand/cases out there according to Logitech. 1: They don’t always match the sleek and slim style of the iPad, and 2: You typically get only 2-3 viewing options from them.
The Logitech AnyAngle, unlike current cases, uses a hidden magnet and hinge system that’s strong enough to hold your iPad at any angle. The case also looks pretty sleek and comes in six different colors.
The Logitech AnyAngle joins Logitech’s lineup of protective cases – including the Logitech Big Bang and the Logitech Hinge, both of which are now compatible with the iPad Air 2. The Logitech AnyAngle is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in November 2014 for a suggested retail price of $59.99.

“It’s fascinating to see how people have changed the way they use their iPad since the product first entered the market,” said Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech. “The iPad is now used nearly everywhere – including in the kitchen or watching shows in bed – and Logitech’s tablet accessories have continued to evolve alongside people’s varying needs with the introduction of the Logitech AnyAngle.”
What makes the Logitech AnyAngle stand out among other cases is its unique stand with an integrated hidden hinge that holds your iPad at any angle within a 50-degree range, and firmly keeps that angle in place without tipping or sliding. The stand folds entirely behind the iPad, creating a clean, minimalist look, whether in stand mode or when laid flat for reading. Magnets also secure the stand behind the iPad and help hold your angle even during movement, so you can pick up your iPad and move it, without losing your angle.
The Logitech AnyAngle is designed to complement the thin and light aesthetics of the iPad Air 2, and withstand whatever life might throw your way. The case features a rubberized frame that helps protect the iPad from accidental bumps and drops. The front cover’s hidden magnets keep the case securely closed, safeguarding your iPad’s screen from scratches and cracks. And the back of the case has a clear cover that shows off the back of the iPad yet protects it from scratches.
The Logitech AnyAngle comes in a variety of color combinations, designed to suit your style. So whether you prefer a sophisticated, classic black or want to make a statement with violet or teal, we have your unique look covered.
