Kelly McElroy, a spokeswoman for accessories maker Incipio, said the market is already using the iPad Pro keyboard with Smart Connector connectivity technology, so the company is evaluating the market's interest in another iPad Pro keyboard and wants to determine whether the market remains blank To be filled.
Brydge CEO Smith said that Smart Connector technology has too many restrictions, so Brydge products in the current situation using Smart Connector is "unreasonable".
