If you have a Magic Keyboard for iPad and a Mac, do me a favor?

See if you can pair the Magic Keyboard for iPad with the Mac, and if you can, see if the trackpad gestures work?

I need a new keyboard, and I want one with a trackpad.

Thanks!

You do not 'pair' the magic keyboard. It uses a physical, proprietary connector for I/O and draws power from the iPad.

Does not work via Bluetooth, which is what you would need.

Thanks! Not what I wanted to hear, but definitely what I needed to hear.

This related product from Brydge connects via BT.

I do not see any Q&A whether it works on Macs, too. But maybe check with them?
