The Brydge Pro+ keyboard adds a trackpad to your iPad Pro
Brydge, a company who makes keyboards and accessories for the iPad and MacBook, has announced that they are preparing to take preorders for the Brydge Pro+ — a second iteration of the much beloved Brydge Pro keyboard for the iPad.
AppleInsider had taken a look at the original Brydge Pro keyboard and rated it a 4.5 out of 5. We cited the superior build quality, the MacBook-like design, and the great typing experience as the best features, recommending it over Apple's own Smart Keyboard.
Now, Brydge is getting ready to launch the second iteration of the Brydge Pro+. It looks as though the updated version is still going to keep its sleek, MacBook-inspired feel but will gain a few additions to work alongside iPadOS.
Like its predecessor, the Brydge Pro+ will feature a zero to 180 degree viewing angle, a MacBook-inspired keyboard with backlit keys, and Bluetooth connectivity.
New to the Brydge Pro+ is the multi-touch trackpad that takes advantage of iPadOS's new Assistive Touch features. The trackpad features gestures, allowing you to access App Expose, Home Screen, and Dock with ease.
Bridge Pro+ will be available for both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro and will come in Space Gray at launch. The Brydge Pro+ will cost $199.99 for the 11-inch iPad Pro and $229.99 for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
The first 500 preorders will ship in late February, with the remaining provers shipping in late march. Those interested can head over to the Brydge website to sign up to receive an email when preorders go live.
