Redesigned. Rechargeable. Remarkable.

  • Overview

    The Magic Keyboard combines a sleek new design with a built-in rechargeable battery and enhanced key features. With an improved scissor mechanism beneath each key for increased stability, as well as optimised key travel and a lower profile, the Magic Keyboard provides a remarkably comfortable and precise typing experience. It pairs automatically with your Mac, so you can get to work straight away. And the battery is incredibly long-lasting — it will power your keyboard for about a month or more between charges.

      Noisy and cheap-feeling, terrible value for money

This new one is definitely a step backwards. The keys feel cheap and nasty and are very very noisy when you type. I record screencasts during which I'm often typing, and the noise is ruining my audio. Also the lower angle makes it more uncomfortable to type. Unfortunately this being apple you don't have much choice if you need a keyboard, but if you can find an alternative, buy it. There's no way this is worth the £79 I paid for it.

      Excellent, as usual

      I read a few reviews about this keyboard before I bought one and a lot of them said that the arrow keys were hard to use and in general wasn't easy to use, not I read a few reviews about this keyboard before I bought one and a lot of them said that the arrow keys were hard to use and in general wasn't easy to use, not sure what they are all talking about, it is a great product, yes the arrow keys are a little smaller than on the old keyboards but there is no difference in usability, my fingers found the right keys from the start!

      Another solid Apple product

      I have had this keyboard for a few days now, and I have found that I can type much faster on this keyboard because of the lower key travel. As most other review I have had this keyboard for a few days now, and I have found that I can type much faster on this keyboard because of the lower key travel. As most other reviews have said, this new version is louder to type. But I quite like the noise, each key makes a satisfying tap to compensate for the lower key travel. The lower key travel does make they keyboard much easier to use, and is defiantly an upgrade from my wired apple keyboard with the num pad. Although, the only thing I would want it to do is be able to act as a wired keyboard through the lightning cable, as at work we have really rubbish keyboards, but no bluetooth, therefore I'd love to be able to simply plug this keyboard into my work computer and continue to use it there. This is another great product from apple. Im not sure it's worth £79 however at least when you buy from apple you can rest assured that you are buying quality and that the product is designed by Jony Ive!

However, I cant find how to check the battery level, yet! So I am not sure how long it lasts. Other than that, great! Pricey though.

      Great Keyboard

In fact, I'm really ple I decided to buy one of these only yesterday, largely because the Logitech one I have been using has been playing up. Not disappointed. In fact, I'm really pleased with it because I find it a vast improvement to the last one and to the older, battery operated, Apple keyboard that I use solely for my iPad. It is light, but I don't find that an issue. The keyboard is very smooth, so it would seem the improved mechanism works well. The layout is exactly the same as any other Qwerty board I have ever owned. I would definitely recommend it.

      Just brought magic keyboard to use with my iPad. No indication of battery status on keyboard and the instructions only explain how to get the information using Just brought magic keyboard to use with my iPad. No indication of battery status on keyboard and the instructions only explain how to get the information using an Apple Mac. Thoughts were to bring it back, however, I found that if you switch on your iPad and pull down on screen to see notifications, go to edit and move battery from widgets to notifications your will be able to see the battery status for your magic keyboard. RESULT...please be patient as it didn't happen instantly but on checking 10 minutes later I now have a view. I have now decided to keep my keyboard. Missed out on 5 stars because there should be an indicator on the keyboard. Come on Apple most electrical items have an indicator!!!! The Magic Keyboard is light and if you touch type, great to use. Nice to hear every key. Can type at the desk, dinner table even on my lap whilst watching telly. If you can't afford a Mac but have an iPad this is great. Applying for jobs is easier. You know that bit on the application that ask you why you want the job...now I can type quicker using my MAGIC KEYBOARD. Unlike the smaller keyboards that also act as a cover for the iPad, I know I can use my magic keyboard with the next new iPad I decide to buy. Some of the other keyboards (which are not made by Apple) can only be used up to iPad 3. Loving my new Magic Keyboard.

    • will the new keyboard work with an older Mac?

      As long as the older Mac has Bluetooth, it'll work. Newer Bluetooth devices are backwards compatible As long as the older Mac has Bluetooth, it'll work. Newer Bluetooth devices are backwards compatible.

      The unfortunate answer is: "somewhat". I easily paired the keyboard via Bluetooth. The basic f The unfortunate answer is: "somewhat". I easily paired the keyboard via Bluetooth. The basic functions of the keyboard work - I am typing this on my Magic Keyboard on a Windows 10 machine. There are a few caveats: 1. The function keys work as function keys - no volume control, no brightness adjustment, etc. 2. The "fn" key simply does not work - which is very problematic as you can't ctrl-alt-delete on Windows with this keyboard (delete for Windows is actually is fn-delete on this keyboard). I even installed the Bootcamp driver for a previous Apple keyboard (AppleKeyboardInstaller64) which did nothing. So yes, it works somewhat.
