Apple's Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro  is really quite magical. It has a fantastic design and an excellent keyboard and trackpad. But with prices starting at S$439, it is also really expensive.

Fortunately, Brydge has a more affordable alternative. It's called the Brydge Pro+ and like the Magic Keyboard, it features a full-size keyboard and an integrated trackpad.

The keyboard has backlit keys and also features a function row with all the familiar Mac shortcuts.

And unlike the Magic Keyboard, the Brydge Pro+ doesn't connect via the Smart Connector. Instead, it attaches magnetically to the iPad Pro and connects via Bluetooth. A built-in battery provides a claimed battery life of up to three months.

For protection, the Brydge Pro+ also comes with a magnetic snap-on cover that goes on to the back of your iPad Pro.

The Brydge Pro+ keyboard for the iPad Pro will be available starting 19 June 2020 and will be available for both the 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It is priced at S$369 and S$399 respectively – pricey, but considerably less than Apple's Magic Keyboard.

You will be able to find them on Ante, Lazada and Shopee.
