While even the humble keyboard can have its challenges, a full-sized one is still one of the most useful input devices available. Yet often keyboard users can find they have to compromise between the features they want and the ability to bring their keyboard with them. Apple’s Magic Keyboard strikes a balance between portability and features.
The Magic Keyboard has an ultra-slim profile that’s just 0.4″ high by 4.5″ wide and 16.5″ long and weighs only 0.86 lbs, so it can slide into any bag or pack with ease and without weighing you down.
It can be used wirelessly via a Bluetooth connection or wired with an included Lightning to USB-C port, with an internal battery that lasts a month or longer.
It’s compatible with iPhone 5 and later, iPad and iPad Mini 5th generation and later, the iPad Pro, and most modern Mac laptops and desktops, working with macOS 10.12.4 or later and iOS 10.3 and later, so you can switch seamlessly between platforms as needed. Use it with your iPad if you can’t charge your laptop, or pair it with your laptop during your commute to respect quiet hours.
Inside the rugged casing are scissor mechanisms under each key that keep your typing quiet while offering precision, stability, and comfort for long sessions at the keyboard.
The keyboard itself features full-sized arrow keys for gamers, a full numeric keyboard for spreadsheets and financial work, and multimedia keys to boot up your preferred programs with a tap.
The quiet operation and precision make it ideal for quiet hours, commuting, and other situations where you need to focus.
A keyboard remains the bedrock of working with all of our devices. The Apple Magic Keyboard provides features, portability, and ease of use for $117.99, 8% off the MSRP of $129.
