Just yesterday we showed you the disassembly that the iFixit made the 21.5-inch iMac with 4K Retina display. Today, she published the teardowns of three new Apple accessories launched at the computer.
Check below the photos and highlights of each one.
- The keyboard model is the A1644.
- IFixit thought Apple would have hidden the Magic Keyboard screws under the rubber feet, but no. Its structure is really glued.
- The keyboard battery is just in place, meaning it can be easily replaced. Relatively similar in iPhone format, it has 793mAh capacity.
- The metal layer that supports all the keys is between two layers of glue, offering sufficient strength even for the most ?excited? users.
- As Apple has already said, the key mechanism remains the scissor mechanism and not the butterfly on the 12-inch MacBook. But Apple claims to have improved that same mechanism, reducing the depth of key presses to just 1mm.
Magic Keyboard ?repairability? note: 3/10.
Magic Mouse 2
- The mouse model is the A1657.
- As with the keyboard, no screws below the rubber bases of the Magic Mouse 2; everything glued together.
- Glued to the upper part of the mouse is a capacitive layer which makes it a kind of multi-touch trackpad as well.
- A small piece separated from the logic board responsible for the ?click? of the mouse.
- The battery has a welded Lightning cable (like the Siri Remote on the new Apple TV) and an incredible 1,986mAh capacity.

Magic Trackpad 2
- The trackpad model is the A1535.
- It could not be different from the other two: the structure of the Magic Trackpad 2 is all glued together.
- The internal rear panel holds the trackpad's 2.024mAh battery.
- The Lightning connector on the soldier, being easily removed.
- Inside, of course, is a Taptic Engine similar (but slightly larger) to that found on MacBooks with Force Touch trackpads. it simulates the sensation of clicking.
