The new iPad for education fits perfectly with the Logitech Rugged Combo 2. The Crayon accessory is a stylus that Apple promises will deliver low latency, tilt support and high sub-pixel precision. With an 8-hour battery life, the Logitech Crayon can go a full school day before it requires charging.

The stylus is supported by apps like Keynote, Numbers, and Pages, plus Microsoft Office products and more.

Unlike the Apple Pencil. the rubber cap is tethered to the stylus. That will allow students to markup PDFs and add sketches to documents, along with other functionality.

The new Digital Crayon accessory is only compatible with the 6th generation iPad and does not work with any of the iPad Pro models. ($299 is the student price, with the new iPad with Pencil support costing $329 for everyone else, just like the standard base model 9.7-inch iPad that came out a year ago.) Presumably, Logitech's new Crayon stylus will also work on this device.

Designed with input from educators, administrators and IT specialists, the updated Rugged Combo 2 case and keyboard combo is created to take on daily wear and tear inside K-12 classrooms. At half the price, the Crayon is a great alternative to the Apple Pencil, if you're okay with the chunkier design.

The detachable keyboard has been redesigned so the keycaps are pry-resistant in order to prevent keys from needing to be replaced. They're also silent, so tapping away on an iPad won't disturb other nearby students.

The Logitech Rugged Combo 2 is a rugged case designed for students from K-12.

The Crayon costs $49 United States dollars, while the Rugged Combo 2 costs $99 USD. Designed in conjunction with popular accessory manufacturer Logitech, the Crayon is targeted toward younger iPad users who want to make the most out of the device's educational tools. Wider retail availability for non-educator consumers isn't now clear.
