In addition to launching a new 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display and updating the other models, Apple today also announced three new peripherals (which had already leaked before): the Magic Keyboard, The Magic Mouse 2 it’s the Magic Trackpad 2. The first two go by default in the box on all iMacs.
Apple’s new Magic accessories have been redesigned for greater comfort, are now equipped with rechargeable (lithium-ion) batteries and are more environmentally friendly.
The Magic Keyboard is a full-size keyboard that occupies an area 13% smaller than before. Its profile has been reduced and it uses a new scissor mechanism (yes, different from the butterfly mechanism of the 12-inch MacBook), providing a stable and precise typing experience; the keys now bring, of course, the San Francisco font. The Magic Mouse 2 is now lighter and more robust, with a base that offers a smoother glide. Finally, the Magic Trackpad 2 abandons the silver look, has a 29% larger surface and incorporates Force Touch technology, as in recent MacBooks.
All peripherals automatically pair with your Mac as soon as they are connected via a Lightning-to-USB cable (included in the box). Apple promises an average autonomy of one month per recharge (two hours) for all of them.
