    Long awaited!

    Already have smaller version at home, been waiting the extended version for work, same excellent quality to use and great to have the additional key, plus no more replacing batteries!

    On a negative note my function keys (F keys at top) are not mapped out correctly, some not working at all, this may be due to my OS being on 10.11 and not 10.12 as its mentions in the spec.

    Awesome Keyboard!

    I don't usually take time for review's but this time was a must. This key board is flawless and I've only had it 4 days. The typing is free flowing and feels soft to the touch. The key's feel more easier to use and less bulky with no sticking. I'm very happy with this purchase. I fully recommend it! You will be very pleased.

    Flat keyboard bad on ergonomics,

    My old wired apple keyboard was elevated in the back to make it ergonomically correct for the wrist. This thing is flat as a pancake. This design needs to be fixed. I am returning mine until a revised version gets released.

    Love it!

    Only a few days old but so far it's awesome. Took it out of the box plugged it in using the attached lighting cable. Pairing was almost instantaneous. So far I love the feel of the keys, don't care what technology is behind it but the keys feel great, look great, and the whole thing is insanely thin.

    Waking up the computer works great and even after a few days of use it's over 90% charge. Coupled with a Magic Mouse 2 it's great not to have cables on my desk any longer.

    The Best Keyboard I've Ever Owned. Hands Down

    I've owned many keyboards. From mechanical "clicks" keyboards to membrane. Expensive to cheap. The magic keyboard has been the best keyboard I've owned, with just one drawback — a number pad with inverted T arrow keys. Now I have it, which is much better for my work as a web/graphic designer. I will be using this keyboard for a very long time.

    No Backlight!

    The feel of the keyboard is good. But there is no backlight on the keys. They could have made it more magic if they had backlight keys.
    I hope the pro version that comes out in December has to backlighting .....Please.

    Meh, could be better, but still usable.

    I was pretty excited to order this. I do a lot of CAD work, and a numeric keyboard is a must for entering dimensions etc. So, the original wireless keyboard was pretty much worthless. The original USB corded keyboard with a numeric keypad was decent. Overall I have mostly liked Apple keyboards, going back to what was probably the typist's best keyboard ever, the Enterprise. (It was called that because it was the size of an aircraft carrier.)

    This new one is mostly pretty nice. I wanted one less wire on my desk, and one fewer of my 2 USB3 ports on my MacBook Pro used up, so this seemed like a decent (albeit expensive) answer.

    PROS
    Nice to type on. Really nice.Key feel is good, travel is nice, action is positive. Good for touch typing. Overall very solid feel.
    Key spacing is good.
    Pairing is no brainer easy.
    Battery life appears to be good.
    Charging / lightning port is on the back of the keyboard, where it should be.

    CONS
    I had to get out the tiny booklet to find out there is an on/off switch which is not real obvious on the back. I guess its OK, but it could be a bit more obvious. Also, does this mean I have to shut it off every time I am not using the keyboard to achieve good charge life?

    As others have mentioned, the keyboard is pretty flat. It IS nice and thin, so there's that, but it would be nice if there were some way to have a bit of adjustment in the angle. I guess we're all getting used to typing of flat keyboards what with thin laptops, tablet keyboards, etc, but that doesn't mean it is a good thing. A little angle is nice, and ability to adjust it is helpful in avoiding wrist strain.

    As somebody else mentioned, backlit keys would be a nice touch, but not a huge deal.

    If it sounds like I'm being overly picky, I guess I am BUT for $130, this thing OUGHT to be darn near perfect. So, although a very nice keyboard, I can't say it is a real great value.

    OVERALL, I'm glad I bought it.

    SO disappointed

    As another reviewer noted, the Function keys for Volume and most other functions DON'T WORK. For some bizarre reason, in order to adjust brightness, instead of using the function keys with the icons for adjusting brightness -- which don't work -- you have to use the F14 and F15 keys which don't have brightness icons. And, there doesn't appear to be any way to change this.

    The battery level does not show.

    It took more than 20 minutes to get the keyboard to pair, which included a phone conversation with an Apple Tech Support person who asked, "Are the batteries in correctly?" To which I responded, "How should I know? The battery is built into the keyboard and there's no way to open it to see."

    This very disappointing product which I've waited YEARS for, is being returned.

    Another beautiful and somewhat impractical Apple product

    The design is contemporary, the materials are high quality... it's everything the USB full-size keyboard is, in a slightly updated design. But, once again, Apple trades usability for "slimness." The keyboard is too thin and doesn't have any pop-out feet, so it's pretty terrible ergonomically. I really wanted to love it as much as I do my Magic Trackpad, but I might be switching back to the wired one so as to not hurt my wrists.

    Keyboard is awesome!

    I had been waiting for Apple to come out with the 10 version of the bluetooth keyboard and I have 0 complaints about this keyboard. Love the soft touch keys, I think Apple was very smart to make it such a compact keyboard. Doesn't waste space on casing that isn't needed. Thrilled to have bluetooth since I have a mini mac with limited usb ports. I highly recommend this keyboard.

    Half way there

    Finally we have a numeric keypad on a Apple Bluetooth keyboard. Set up is a breeze, it's very responsive, no lag time with keystrokes.

    Improvements - where in the heck is the backlit feature? It's an across the board feature of your laptops - why not this too? Will we wait another 7 years waiting for that too?

    Tactile feel of the keys is lighter and less "feel" compared to the numeric keyboard that's wired. Feels cheaper, but works fine. The keyboard itself is very light, and has no incline capability. Still, it's worth having if you must have a numeric keyboard - like many of us do.

    Perfect for me

    I understand ergonomics, the need for moving the keyboard around, the noisy versus loud keyboard clicks, the function keys versus Apple specific functions. I've used keyboards for macOS and Windows computers for as long as Apple has been alive. With this new keyboard, I love the quietness of the key presses, the look of the keyboard along with the Magic Trackpad 2 and iMac, the ability to charge and use the keyboard at the same time (learn from this, ahem, Magic Mouse 2), and the wireless connection has been flawless. I was not a fan of the in-box wireless keyboard shipped with iMac without the number pad, and I've always used the wired full keyboard with the number pad.

    Outside of the obvious design choice of a flat, rectangular ergonomics (so it's not perfect if you have special needs or medical issues), in brief, this keyboard has, so far, been perfect for me. Thank you!

    Better Than Nothing

    I always felt the tiny keyboard that came with the iMac was next to useless and would have replaced it with a Surface Keyboard, but it didn't play well with the iMac. I also was not about to purchase a USB full sized keyboard from Apple when Bluetooth was available from every other manufacturer. So when Apple FINALLY came out with a full sized BT keyboard, albeit about 7 years late, I thought I would take the plunge. The overall character of the keyboard is excellent and quite superior to the original toy keyboard. The keys have enhanced soft 'click' to them that the original did not. I would describe it as more crisp than the original. I am finding I am already typing faster and with more accuracy. Now for the bad. Apple, in their continued obsolescence strategy has made the keyboard smaller than the original trackpad and mouse. So you have the option of buying new peripherals or living with it. I have no intention on using a mouse that: 1-has no right click key and 2-has the charging port on the bottom. I already replaced that with a white MX Master. The new trackpad may be worth getting when I have some money to waste. The biggest con for this keyboard is that there is no way to angle it up, so you are typing on essentially a flat surface. Thanks a lot, Tim! Ever hear of ergonomics? In summary, it is better than the original by quite a bit, but falls short on knocking it out of the park.

    Worth the wait

    Praise be! WHY T F did it take Apple so long to release this keyboard?? The minute I saw the new iMac Pro (drool) I jumped onto the website and bought this sucker without even looking at the ridiculously high price. I just didn't care, had to have it. As far as reviewing the functionality, whatever. It's a keyboard, people. It works just fine. Pairs instantly, charges quickly and we finally have that wonderful little box of numbers. I'll just never know why it took so long..

    Yes! Finally

    Since purchasing my 27" iMac in 2013, I've been waiting for a full size wireless keyboard from Apple. I've tried several keyboards from other manufacturers with disappointing results. Received my Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad today and am not disappointed, as it has all the quality and refinements that I've come to expect from apple products. The angle of the keyboard is lower than the previous wireless apple keyboard, but I do not find it uncomfortable. The key actions is light and crisp. I'm sad that it took so long to make this product a reality, but am thrilled the wait is over.

    Seriously Apple..

    The function keys for volume, brightness, & playback don't work on Yosemite or El Capitan. Why would you change something fundamental like that. Please realize that not everyone uses your products the singular way you envision they use them.

    Mixed

    I've wanted a bluetooth Mac keyboard for years, but couldn't let go of the numeric keypad on my standard USB keyboard, so I was thrilled when this was released. Just one day in and a few thoughts. The keys function well, but there are issues. The first is that the angle at which it sits on a desk is not ergonomically appropriate. The standard keyboard has a separate "bar" at the back that raises it up and allows it to sit on the desk at an angle; the Magic Keyboard sits almost flat, and I can almost feel the carpal tunnel forming in my wrists as I type this review. The second issue is minor, but significant. If you're like me, you slide the keyboard around to slightly different positions during the day — to take a call, swivel in your seat, etc. The base of this keyboard is very "sticky", and really doesn't slide. Obviously making it not sticky enough would be a problem while typing, but the old keyboard struck a good balance that this one lacks. Will I keep my new Magic Keyboard? Not sure yet.

    New extended Magic keyboard

    Was intending to buy the much cheaper USB wired keyboard with numeric keypad but glad I spotted an article saying that a new keyboard was ready for imminent release by Apple. Ordered it yesterday and it arrived 5 minutes ago - already in use and have to say it's even a bigger improvement than the previous magic keyboard. Well done again Apple - next thing to order is the new iPad Pro 10.5 for release next week����

    Why did it take you so long?

    I've been waiting for Apple to release a full size keyboard for what feels like forever now. Bought immediately after release and received today. It is wonderful and even works great on my Windows machine.
