We’re starting to see major manufacturers launch new accessories for the 2020 iPad Pro lineup and Zagg is showing off its Slim Book Go and Rugged Book Go keyboard cases that offer a nice mix of functionality and versatility.

Previously available for previous-gen iPad Pro and other models, the Zagg Slim Book Go and Rugged Book Go are two solid options to add protection and a removable keyboard to your new iPad Pro.

Other shared features between the cases include Apple Pencil storage, seven-color backlit keyboards, and 1- or 2-year rechargeable batteries.

Keep in mind no trackpad built-in here as that is arriving with Apple’s more expensive but more capable Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro in May.

The Slim Book Go for the new iPad Pro will be available soon priced at $99.95 and $129.99 while the Rugged Book Go will also arrive soon priced at $149.99 for both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch versions.
