Accessory maker Brydge this week opened the pre-order process for the long-awaited keyboard cases for Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro, including both the 11- and 12.9 inch formats.
The 11-inch keyboard case.
Each aluminum case connects to an iPad via Bluetooth, and has three-level backlit keys that resemble the layout of a MacBook, with the addition of dedicated iOS shortcuts. An included cover protects an iPad’s back. While in the case an iPad can be rotated up to 180 degrees for typing at multiple angles.
Brydge is aiming to ship the first cases on April 15, priced at $149.99 for 11 inches and $169.99 for 12.9 inches, with silver or space gray color options. Only the first 1,000 preorders will actually get a case on the 15th however.
