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 12-inch MacBook butterfly mechanism), providing a stable and accurate typing experience; The keys now bring, of course, the San Francisco font.
