Review: Brydge 12.9 Max+ Wireless Keyboard with Trackpad

 

Brydge 12.9 Max+

When I saw the first ad for the new Brydge 12.9 Max+ Wireless Keyboard with Trackpad, I knew I had to try it. I’ve been a fan of Brydge’s keyboards for a few years now, but just from a photo, I could tell this one is different. Very, very different. From the new design to the massive trackpad, the Max+ is a whole new ballgame. Let’s get into the reasons why and all of the fine details.

Waiting for the Beta

IPadOS Multitasking App Switcher

I’m struggling with patience this year, or maybe lack thereof. Normally I’m right there with the early birds, jumping into the first beta on most of my devices on day one. That gives me no end of things to write and talk about as all of the new features are uncovered. But not this year.

I’ve waited a few days on the early reports on Beta 1 bugs a couple of times. I’ve even waited for Beta 2 to show up before making the jump before. This year is the first time since I started running betas around iOS 4 that I’ve had to wait beyond the release of Beta 2.

First Look: Brydge 12.9 Max+ Wireless Keyboard Case with Trackpad

A few months ago I got an email saying that Brydge was working on a new firmware that would bring multitouch to their Pro+ keyboard case’s trackpad and  I got really excited. All of the sudden, this accessory that I had completely given up on was back in the game with a fully functional trackpad. The beta firmware was impressive and gave Brydge’s first iPad Pro keyboard with trackpad a whole new lease on life.

A few weeks later, I saw even better news from Brydge. They announced that they were coming out with a new keyboard case for 12.9” iPad Pros (including the new, slightly thicker 2021 version) that was very different than their previous models. It was the 12.9 Max+ Wireless Keyboard Case with Trackpad, and it looked like a legitimate competitor to Apple’s Magic Keyboard.

One of the first signs of life before any Apple product starts its journey to a new owner is the processing of the payment. Apple didn’t get rich for no reason. Nothing ships out until they get their money, but that’s no different than anything else, right?

New Third Party Keyboard Cases With Trackpads Are Showing Up for the iPad Pro

Keyboard cases used to be one of the most popular third party accessory categories for Apple tablets. From 2011 to 2017, this was a booming field with several companies like Belkin, Logitech and ZAGG offering strong alternatives for all models of iPad.

However, they haven’t taken off quite the same way for the iPad Pro, as Apple introduced the Smart Connector and its own keyboard product in the Smart Keyboard. There were at least a few third party options for the first two generations of the iPad Pro, but new models became scarce after Apple’s major redesign came in 2018. Other than a couple of options from Logitech and Brydge, the well seemed to dry up for newer iPad Pros.
