Brydge 9.7 review
Brydge air keyboard case for the ipad pro 9.7″ gold
The latest iPad Pro lineup from Apple has a lot to like. They’re lightning fast and ultra-thin, with an inexhaustible battery life and dependable cellular connectivity. It’s difficult for laptops to compete on those terms if you can live with iOS to get your job done — which is admittedly a major “if” for a lot of people. The upcoming iPadOS software update announced this week would only help to close the gap.
However, if you want to use your iPad Pro for work, you’ll need a keyboard. And, although third-party keyboards for the new iPad Pro models are just starting to appear, it’s not always clear which one is the best fit, particularly because Apple’s own keyboard has a controversial new design.
Certain iPad Pro keyboards, on the other hand, excel at unique tasks. Since I use an iPad Pro, I checked the 12.9-inch versions of these keyboards, but all should work with the 11-inch versions as well. You will usually find the best match if you know what you’re looking for or have a specific workflow in mind.
Brydge 9.7 product review
Why would I need a new laptop when I use my Mac Pro (Woodcrest) for photography and processor-intensive work, which, considering its age, still works perfectly well? Perhaps the best option is to use an iPad. The iPad’s only flaw is the absence of a proper keyboard. Typing on the iPad is not only a pain in the ass, but it’s also difficult to slant the iPad at a comfortable angle for typing.
I started looking for a keyboard to convert my iPad into a mini laptop after deciding to purchase a new iPad for a third of the price of a MacBook. There are many on the market, but many are budget models with poor key action, cheap plastic finishes, and a lack of weight, making it difficult to change the angle of the iPad’s display and making iPad use a little unsteady. Then I saw an advertisement for the Brydge 9.7.
This metal keyboard is made of the same material and comes with the same color palette as Apple’s iPad Air 2. The Brydge has a set of hinges that rotate 180 degrees, as well as a set of rubber shims into which you insert the iPad and which hold it tightly. Close the iPad as if it were a lid, and you’ve got yourself a 9.7-inch MacBook Air for less than half the price.

Since the market for iPad add-on keyboards is so competitive, each new model must stand out from the crowd to be effective. The Brydge 9.7 accomplishes this by having built-in speakers, an aluminum frame machined from a single block, and hinges that can be rotated 180 degrees.
Update: Originally intended for the original iPad Air, this accessory is now compatible with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and iPad Air 2 right out of the box. Its name was changed from BrydgeAir to Brydge 9.7 at the time.
When it came to designing this keyboard, Brydge didn’t cut any corners. The Brydge 9.7’s aluminum frame gives it a sturdy feel and a professional appearance. To fit the iPad’s color scheme, it’s available in silver, grey, and gold.
A pair of clamps on one edge hold the iPad in place. The hinges that transform the tablet and keyboard into a clamshell are made from these. The tablet is kept firmly in the clamps, so it won’t fall out by mistake, but not so tightly that removing the device will be difficult.
