The availability of these new Brydge keyboards for the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models come “after the most successful pre-order campaign to date,” a spokesperson told iPhone in Canada. Pre-orders for the keyboards began in January 2019 and so far over 7,000 units have been delivered to early adopters throughout May.
Brydge Pro keyboards have dual connectivity with Bluetooth 4.1 and USB-C, multiple viewing modes, adjustable backlit keyboard, up to 12 months of battery life, iOS shortcut keys and also protection for the back of your iPad with a snap-on magnetic cover.
Amazon.ca hasn’t been updated with these latest models, but Amazon.com does have them available with shipping and import fees combined to Canada. Brydge’s website charges $15 USD to Canada plus applies taxes, so Amazon USA may be the best method for now if you’re jonesing, until these units hit Amazon Canada “in a couple weeks”, according to Brydge.
Keyboards from Brydge are excellent—we’ve been using one for Apple’s 2018 iPad and couldn’t be happier with how it functions. They’re expensive but the build quality and functionality of the keyboards are well worth it.
