Apple just released the all-new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2, which claim to be more comfortable, capable and environmentally friendly. Designed around a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, all three wireless Bluetooth accessories eliminate the need for disposable batteries and feature a noticeably more solid internal structure and quality feel.
The new Magic Keyboard features a full-size keyboard in a sleek new design that takes up 13 percent less space on your desktop. With a new scissor mechanism and lower profile, the Magic Keyboard provides an incredibly stable, precise and comfortable typing experience.
The new Magic Mouse 2 is lighter, sturdier and features an optimized foot design for a smoother glide. It is completely rechargeable, so you’ll eliminate the use of traditional AA batteries. It has fewer moving parts thanks to its built-in battery and continuous bottom shell, and has an optimized foot design — all helping Magic Mouse 2 track easier and move with less resistance across your desk. And the Multi-Touch surface allows you to perform simple gestures such as swiping between web pages and scrolling through documents.
The new Magic Trackpad 2 features edge-to-edge glass with a 29 percent larger surface and brings Force Touch to the desktop for the first time. Force Touch enables a range of new ways to interact with your Mac, including the new Force click to quickly look up a word, preview a file or bring up a map from an address. The new Magic devices pair instantly with your Mac as soon as they are plugged in via the Lightning-to-USB charging cable, and can last about a month or more on a full charge.
Every new iMac comes standard with the new Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2, and customers can order the new Magic Trackpad 2 as an option. A full-size wired keyboard with numeric keypad (model MB110LL/B) remains available and unchanged for $49.
