      @Tech Fan I really hate how the keyboard flip to the back when holding or face the table top when in stand mode. The keyboard side gets dirty really fast

    I got my brydge keyboard last week didn’t like it very much. Got my magic keyboard today. Couldn’t be happier


    I just bought an iPad Pro 12.9 and the seller included the Brydge Pro+ and I really like the design and feel and functions over my previous magic keyboard. The only reason(s) I just ordered the Max+ is because I miss the ability to easily remove the iPad and I can’t have a screen protector on while in the Pro+ because the hinge clamps are too tight.

  • Suleiman

    2:18 That is enough for me to decide not to buy it

  • Mani Dasoju

    Brydge is way better here and I guess the only thing that would be bad is that there’s no pass through. That just means you have to plug in the hard drive or device into the iPad directly…but that’s not too bad. The size and weight isn’t too bad since it just becomes a laptop at that point…which is basically is with a keyboard case.

  • Mark

    I believe it is laughable when Bluetooth technology is criticized when comparing Apple with Bluetooth keyboards. The issue isn't Bluetooth. The issue is iPadOS. I have used cheap and pricey keyboards and mice for years with Mac and Windows OS without issue. Apple needs to admit that the tablet OS is just that and keyboard accessories are an afterthought. Stop blaming Bluetooth for what most of us know to be an iPadOS issue.

    I like the Magic Keyboard, and the I-Pad floats over the keyboard. But I wish they had added a function row, and that you can fold it back. Other than that I like the Magic Keyboard. I am glad that I spent the extra $100 for the Magic Keyboard.

    Tbh, I’ve looked at every competitor & the MKB is still the nest option for me. I *hate* that there are no top row shortcut keys as when I use my Mac I always rely on them, I wish the angles were more but I’ve come to accept that no one will be as easy to sue as the MKB even w/ the compromise I have to make. It is what it is, sadly.

  • Jay Perry

    Bluetooth only connection for the Bridge is a no go for me.. the Logitech Combo Touch is the only real other option that uses the on-board pins for connectivity.. I have little to very no noticeable battery drain with the Logitech Combo Touch, probably equal to the Magic keyboard.. Only downside is the trackpad is night and day better on the Magic keyboard, the Logitech one is serviceable but you know, you get what you pay for.

  • SkepticsR_us

    The lack of function keys on the Apple keyboard is a dealbreaker. How do you quickly turn down the volume? Or adjust screen brightness?

    • Matthew

      @SkepticsR_us would agree with you on that part. I actually ordered the Logitech Combo Touch for this.

    • SkepticsR_us

      @Matthew Not convinced. When an annoying ad appears, mid word in a sentence, I hit ONE key ONCE on my keyboard to silence it. And once again after the ad. I use this all the time on monetized CNhave videos.

    • Matthew

      Control center. If you think about it, it’s faster adjusting brightness and volume from there as you can quickly slide it all the way down or up then pressing keys multiple times.

    The thing about Apple product is most of the time they got it right on the first try (so little to none noticeable drastic design changes). I guess they’re not shy on spending budget for R&D and pricing their stuffs so high.

    A couple days ago I finally tried the Apple Magic keyboard case at Best Buy and was actually surprised at how much I didn’t like it. Got the Logitech Folio Touch, and while the actual keyboard switches don’t feel quite as good to type on, that’s literally the only thing I liked better about Apple’s case. Logitech’s has a taller trackpad, larger wrist rests, a function row, materials that both look and feel better, protects the iPad Pro better, and I love how I can flip the keyboard around and comfortably watch videos with my iPad in bed beside me or on my lap without the keyboard in the way. Not quite as comfortable as using like a standard tablet, but that’s something I very rarely do.

    Pondered between these two (and the Logitech Combo Touch) for a while and decided to go with the Magic Keyboard. I do like the wider hinge angle of the Brydge but as you have also indicated, there were more benefits with the Magic Keyboard. Two key points for me too was I actually don't want the iPad to look like a laptop and the hover design (for me) was more interesting and I really like that the Magic Keyboard uses the Smart Connector (hence why I was also looking at the Logitech). Finally, I don't treat it necessary as a $100 (or AU$150 for me) more at the time of purchase but think about it as $100 over at least 3 years (which would be my minimal timeframe for this keyboard) and that's like a coffee a month!

    Proudly using my iPad Pro 11" 2018 with a new white Magic Keyboard (got rid of the wrinkled Folio). Decided to hang on for a while since the M1 iPad Pro didn't exactly impress me. Right now, 2018 has all I need. I guess the fact that I have an M1 MacBook Air and a 2020 iMac 5500XT is sinking in and finally telling me not to waste money on a rather useless new processor for iPadOS.

  • Aditya Misra

    Neither the accessories nor the main product ( iPad) makes any sense to me. If you have extra money and you can't find any place to use it, go with apple iPad, not only iPad is expensive but each and every accessories are expensive, that means their is lot of scope to spend money like water. IPad is by far most useless and expensive products I have seen in market.

    The Magic keyboard is way overpriced. It is too heavy and far from perfect. Even the Bridge is too expensive, it’s even heavier and not perfect by a long way. I would rather have a lighter touch screen laptop or separate keyboard. It a real shame you cannot get a touch screen Apple laptop.

    • Colin Wilby

      @Theee Chosen One Apple makes a huge thing about thin and light, so .5 lbs or more is a big deal. All that I said is the truth, if you cannot take that and your only response is petty insults, you had just better keep quiet.

    brydge should have gone with a smart connector instead of bluetooth. they went through all the effort to make it work magnetically but you still gotta pair the darn thing manually which is annoying. And it also means you have to unpair the keyboard too when you take the ipad off the keyboard itself to use touch screen keyboard otherwise it still thinks you're using the physical keyboard

    • Darrin Lin
      Darrin Lin

      @Alexander Stock yeah but it still sucks. If you take the iPad off you have to make sure the keyboard is disconnected or off so you can get the on screen keyboard like you expect. Otherwise it won’t give you a keyboard at all cause ipados thinks you’re typing from the brydge even after you detached it.

    • Alexander Stock
      Alexander Stock

      Pretty sure you only have to pair it once.

    If the Brydge ever adds the Smart connector and leaves the battery for extra battery life, and add a USB-A, they’ll really have something.

    hmm why brydge even made this case? it killed the purpose of tablet already. I would just buy a MBA if I want that form factor. I would choose the magic keyboard though it's overpriced, at least it serves the purpose of tablet and portable keyboard cover.

      @Lightning Gamer SmartConnector is not a closed technology. Brydge can license it from Apple and use in their own products. They decided to not to.

    • Lightning Gamer
      Lightning Gamer

      Correct the Logitech uses the same smart connector as the Magic Keyboard does and I believe that’s because Logitech has either a partnership or connection with Apple to use the design :)

  • Bill

    Is the Brydge more wobbly than the MK if you touch the screen? The weight is kind of a deal killer vs. the MK, which I think is already too heavy. I have a 2020 MK with a 2021 iPP 12.9". Comparing it to my old/dead 12" MacBook, now that was light (though very, very slow performing) I miss the thin/light weight of that device! Finally, the trackpad on the Brydge looks not to be ready for prime time. That is too bad. At least the Logitech Combo has a connection like the MK.

    Ipad keyboards are getting more bulky, heavy and large. Ipads should be compact, lightweight and small. Otherwise you have to carry a semi-computer which is heavier and bulkier than your laptop.

    • Christopher C.
      Christopher C.

      That's the usual tradeoff though of something modular vs. something where everything is integrated. It "should" be heavier and bulkier than a similarly sized laptop, because the laptop will not have a removable "screen"... There's also considerably more tech in an iPad Pro vs. a macBook Air at this point (cameras, mini LED screen tech, touch digitizer, faceID, etc).

      The kickstand on the Logitech keyboard is a big minus. I often need to use iPad in small space or on a narrow tables, the kickstand will get in a way.

    • JustVids

      I was super excited about it and it was just too cumbersome on the 12.9 for me. I’m a big guy and have had no problem using kickstand cases in my lap and the Combo touch on the 12.9 just barely fit. I ended up going with the MK.

    I’d recommend the Logitech folio touch or combo touch over the others only because they’re cheaper and use the same magnetic connector. No setup required and so it feels very seamless. Trust me once u ve used it u don’t wanna go back to the Bluetooth process…..

    • zgoaty92

      I’m currently using the Folio Touch on my 11” M1 iPad Pro and my only real complaint is that the speaker cutouts don’t quite line up properly so some of the speaker holes get blocked, but other than that it works just the same that it did when I had the A12X 11” iPad Pro. I definitely agree with you in that having a physical connection to the iPad makes the overall usability of typing and functions on the iPad that much better.

  • Brydge

    @MaxTech thanks for covering the 12.9 MAX+. Great to see such a detailed side by side. We don’t usually comment on reviews, but we believe there are a few points covered that could be confusing and misleading people. - We strongly recommend not using assistive touch. Just like on the Magic keyboard and the Logi Combo touch, turning this on significantly impacts the experience of a true multi-touch trackpad. We don't recommend using it at all. - We can see in the early stages of the review, there was a perceived difference between iPadOS 14.6 and iPadOS 15 BETA. In reality there is none as long as Assistive Touch turned off. We are excited to see how iPadOS 15 BETA evolves between now and launch. - Pinch and zoom, great pick up! Our testing, while comprehensive, clearly didn't cover extremely fast actions like demonstrated in the video and as a result we did not pick it up. This is an easy fix and one we will address. - Given the MAX+ will be shipping with the latest firmware, updating with Brydge Connect is not immediately necessary. Like Logi, we have our App to enable updates in the future to ensure the experience is always the best it can be. We do not see this as a negative, but a positive. As stated earlier, we avoid commenting on unbiased reviews as we want people to come to their own conclusions on our product. However, in this instance we wanted to make sure the facts were made clear. We hope this clears up some of the questions we have seen coming in.

    • Brydge

      @Max Tech Something isn’t adding up here. re: Assistive Touch. There should definitely be a significant difference. If not, it sounds like you have the wrong FW (possible the engineering team didn’t update it before sending it to you). We’ve emailed you directly to so we can sort it out!

      Ah yes, I tried it both ways, with and without Assistivetouch and it didn't seem to change anything. iPadOS 15 did seem to have glitches for us so we're gonna try it again with another version of it. Glad you guys fixed the pinch to zoom. Otherwise, great job on the 12.9 Max+! Definitely works much better this year. Awesome that you guys made the trackpad larger. The keyboard feels great! Very good job on the hinge and magnetic snap system. Works very well. Good job!

      Vadim, as per the comment on this video by the makers of this keyboard, you ought to make a second comparison video!

      I would really like to see you using Smart connector instead of BLE5 for your keyboard. I don’t want to remember to charge the keyboard battery; I don’t want extra weight and bulk of the battery; I don’t want to deal with BLE drivers; I don’t want wireless connection when there’s reliable wired connection available. While it’s OK to develop a generic Bluetooth keyboard that will work across devices, this particular keyboard is fitted for only one device, so any advantages of Bluetooth connection are mute.

    DUDE! It’s “HUNDRED”! You don’t need to say “A hundred”, lol. Man this was an awesome review but that shit kills me every time I hear somebody do it 😂

    No smart connector = No magic

    The Magic keyboard should have had headphone jack……
