Bydge is well known for designing keyboards for iPad that look like MacBooks. But their newest even has a built-in trackpad – available from mid-April.
The Brydge Pro+ Keyboard features an oversized trackpad, designed to seamlessly work with iPadOS. And promises to transform how we use our iPad Pro. Fluid gestures allow us to easily switch between apps, access the app switcher and activate the Dock, Control Center and apps in Slide Over.
Design-wise it looks like a MacBook and is engineered from machined aluminium to match the design, quality, and colour of the iPad itself. While the keyboard is backlit, unlike Apple’s iPad keyboards (except the new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro).
Other key features include:
0-180° Viewing Angles
Adjustable Backlit Keys
Bluetooth 4.1 Connectivity
3-Month Battery Life Per Charge
