I know that we have already looked at Brydge Keyboards, but today we are going to be looking at the Brydge Pro Plus. This keyboard from Brydge has not been released yet, and is expected to ship sometime in mid April. There are some exciting new features to look forward to in this upgrade of the Brydge Pro Keyboard.
Obviously, the main feature in this keyboard is the trackpad. This is the first keyboard that Brydge has produced that has a keyboard in the device. This was helped out a lot with the addition of iPadOS 13.4, which, if you want to learn more about, click here. This keyboard is actually two different devices, a keyboard and a trackpad, but when you connect it to your iPad via Bluetooth, it will show up as just one feature.
As I mentioned previously, this keyboard features a multi-touch trackpad. On the Brydge website, they have gestures that are set into the trackpad to help you navigate your iPad better. You can view your App Expose by tapping two fingers, you can also access the home screen by tapping once in a bottom corner. One other gesture is that you can bring up your dock with a three finger tap on the screen, which is very convenient.
Just like the previous model this keyboard offers 180 degrees of different viewing angles. Unfortunately, you still can not fold it all the way back like you can with Apple’s keyboards. It has backlit keys, which the old model had as well, but is still very nice. The keyboard has Bluetooth 4.1 Connectivity and a three month battery life.
The USB-C charging port is still on the bottom right of the keyboard, which is kind of a weird place. I would have liked if it was closer to the top, but it’s not that big of a deal. This keyboard comes in two sizes, 11 inches and 12.9 inches, which are specifically made for the 2018 and 2020 iPad Pro’s. The 11 inch model is available for pre-order for $199.99 and the 12.9 inch model is also available for pre-order for $229.99.
