With a quality keyboard case, your iPad Pro is practically a laptop

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro is the Goldilocks of iPad tablets: Not too big, not too small. It packs all the great productivity features present in its bigger 12.9-inch cousin, all while retaining the portability of the standard 9.7 iPad. A Keyboard case like the Brydge 10.5 Series II pushes the iPad into the notebook category. For the ultimate productivity experience on an iPad Pro, you need a keyboard case.
