With the release of Apple’s new 2020 iPad Pro models right around the corner, it’s evident that third party accessories will soon flood the market. The new tablet, which aptly challenges Microsoft and its line of popular Surface products with its yet-to-release Magic Keyboard and updated specs, effectually turns the product into a laptop-rivaling machine. However, for those looking to take the iPad-meets-laptop experience one step further, Brydge has developed a new wireless keyboard and trackpad attachment that will turn the tablet into a pseudo-MacBook.
The Bridge Pro+ is constructed from machined aluminum and has been designed to match Apple’s design, quality, and color of its products. The keyboard features an oversized integrated trackpad that’s been specifically designed for the touch-first experience on the iPad, allowing users to easily switch between apps, activate the Dock, Control Center, and apps in Slide Over. They haven’t slacked on the keyboard, either, which features LED backlit keys that have been slightly raised to give a more mechanical touch. Other details include Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, as well as an expected 3-month battery life per charge. And the best detail of all? It’s compatible with the 2020 Apple iPad Pro.
Take a detailed look at the Bridge Pro+ above. Units made for both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro models are currently available for preorder via the brand’s webstore for $200 USD and $230 USD, respectively.

So it’s official. Apple just confirmed what we’ve always believed. The new iPad Pro really can be a laptop replacement. The best news? The Brydge Pro+ has the same trackpad experience as the new Magic Keyboard. Productive. Powerful. Affordable. Pre-order now for shipping mid-April.
