MacRumors and Brydge have partnered up this week with a sale that is taking 20 percent off a selection of Brydge's best iPad-compatible keyboards, as well as the retailer's MacBook Vertical Dock. This sale is for United States residents only and will run through February 17. You'll need to use the code MACRUMORS20 to see the discounts.

Brydge 2 3 21 Deal BlueNote: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

In total there are four iPad keyboards on sale, including those compatible with the iPad, iPad Air, 11-inch iPad Pro, and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The MacBook Vertical Dock is available for the 13-inch MacBook Air (2018 and later), 13-inch MacBook Pro (2016 and later), and 16-inch MacBook Pro (2019 only). The 15-inch MacBook Pro version is excluded from this sale.

Brydge's keyboards feature multi-touch trackpads, a magnetic SnapFit case, Bluetooth, drop protection, and in some cases adjustable backlit keys. They also all include Brydge's "Instant On" feature, which instantly connects the keyboard to the iPad so you can get back to typing faster.

The MacBook Vertical Dock is an accessory built to reduce clutter on your desk by housing and charging a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air in a vertical position. Remember that these deals will expire on February 17, so you have a few weeks to save on Brydge's keyboard with our exclusive code.

Just a caution for those interested in the vertical docks. They're for the previous gen MBP. "MacBook Pro docks compatible with Touch Bar models only. See tech specs for full list of compatibility."

Wish they had a keyboard for the iPad mini 6. The one for the iPad mini 5 is great.

Sigh…….

No Smart Connector, no go. Why can’t Brydge do what Logitech has done for years and just license the Smart Connector from Apple?!?!?!?!?!

And yes, I would be willing to pay a premium for a Smart Connector version.

iPads desperately trying to be the real thing; a laptop.

What a dumb line of products.
Not dumb at all for those who want to use a physical keyboard with our iPads. Dumb would be in NOT having the option.

iPads desperately trying to be the real thing; a laptop.
The iPad is not, and never has, tried to be a laptop.

These devices are for those that want better long-session text-editing capabilities for their iPad, and/or other occasional precision-based tasks.

The iPad's OS (in particular, its similarity to iPhone OS), touch interface, cameras, Pencil capabilities, weight, volume, and leave-the-keyboard-at-home-if-you want features are the draw for iPad users/lovers.

All of which are NOT available in any Mac laptop, by virtue of it being, well, a laptop.


What a dumb line of products.
Can't argue against an opinion, but I'd say products like this (and the Apple Magic Keyboard) are fantastic and I'm glad they exist.
