Brydge today announced the Pro + keyboard for the iPad Pro. It is different from previous products because it has an integrated trackpad.
Brydge Pro +
Apple has added mouse support to iPadOS 13 as an accessibility feature using the Touch Wizard. A variety of Bluetooth mice are supported, but so far no one has made a trackpad. There was a company that made a similar trackpad keyboard, but Brydge sued them, claiming that the other company had infringed its patent.
Brydge Pro + is designed for the 11-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, connecting via Bluetooth 4.1. It has three months of battery life and backlit keys. Brydge also sells a standalone trackpad if you don’t want a new keyboard.
The 11-inch keyboard costs US $ 199.99 and the 12.9-inch keyboard costs US $ 229.99. The price of the autonomous trackpad is not indicated. You can sign up on the Brydge website to receive an alert when pre-order begins for these products.
