It's time we finally take tablets a bit more seriously, and the Brydge Pro for iPad Pro (opens in new tab) could be the catalyst. After months of being on pre-order, the Brydge Pro for iPad Pro is in-stock and ready to bring a new level of productivity to your device, priced at $149.99 and $169.99 for the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models respectively.

The Brydge Pro is a classy keyboard available in space gray or silver that seamlessly secures your iPad Pro (opens in new tab) in its hinges, transforming the combo into something more akin to a MacBook than an iPad. It's fully versatile though, so you can use it like a laptop when you need to finish some work, or use it to prop up your tablet when you're ready to wind down and binge Netflix. It even comes with a snap-on magnetic cover for the back of your iPad Pro to keep it protected.

In our review of the Brydge Pro from this past April, we remarked on its sturdy design that's nearly impeccably close to the look of the MacBook, as well as its USB-C port that allows you to charge with the same cable your iPad Pro uses. To learn more about the intricacies of this product and why it received 4 out of 5 stars, be sure to check out the full breakdown.

There's no more waiting required. Both sizes of the Brydge Pro for iPad Pro in silver and space gray are now available for shipping via Brydge's website and Amazon (opens in new tab) starting at $149.99.

  • I like it is aluminum, but it is Bluetooth, and does not use the “smart connector” I do not believe they upgraded other size iPads. I understand that, but it would be nice to have a back cover on all models. If you want to draw on your iPad, you have to take the iPad out, and turn it around. If you draw a lot, or use the Apple Pencil, it may be an inconvenience to use.
  • I am wondering if, once ipadOS gets mouse support are there going to be trackpad equipped keyboards released into the wild? if so, I should hold off until that happens. If ipadOS does not wow me (it looks interesting), I am going to surface go for my portable device.
  • I would imagine so, they would just have to release them with the instructions on how to turn the mouse support on in the accessibility settings
