Jason Snell over at Six Colors had a pre-production version of the keyboard and posted some great initial thoughts on it.
My favorite keyboard for the iPad Pro has just started pre-orders for the new iPads. I previously had one for the 9.7 iPad Pro and it was by far my favorite keyboard for the iPad. Like I’ve said before, the Smart Keyboard is good but not ideal. Personally, I hate typing on it. The limited range of viewing angles, lack of controls for iOS (c’mon Apple), and most importantly, the typing experience is less than ideal. The Brydge Keyboard gives you a laptop typing experience for your iPad.
Additionally, since the new iPad Pros have USB-C connection you can charge the keyboard via USB-C or if your Bluetooth connection is spotty you can just connect it via a cable for a no lag experience.
If you’re looking for the best keyboard for your iPad this is it.
