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.
