The Brydge is over.

Brydge launched in 2012 with a mission of turning your iPad into a MacBook Air, but roughly a decade clear of its initial Kickstarter, the company has ceased operations.

9to5Mac has a report detailing Brydge’s internal culture, recent waves of layoffs, unpaid employees, and failed attempts at acquisition by peripheral competitors like Razer or Targus.

The addition of iOS trackpad support in 2020 — which was fully compatible with Apple’s Magic Keyboard but not Brydge — was another big problem. Apple Insider spoke to co-CEO Nicholas Smith, who said he believes “the new owners intend on fulfilling the outstanding orders.”
