On April 20, when the new iMac was launched, the new Magic Keyboard with Touch ID was launched together and that was when we wondered when we could buy the keyboard as a separate accessory. The time has come to buy that accessory separately. Apple has already put it on sale at a price of 159-185 euros. Almost nothing.
When the iMac was launched, the new Magic Keyboard with Touch ID was launched as an accessory. But at that time you could only get that keyboard if you bought the computer. Many would like to buy just the accessory and that turning point has come for them. Patience pays off. We already have at a price of 159 euros or 185 depending on whether you buy it without a numeric keypad or with it.
An important point to note is that Apple says that the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID It is only compatible with Macs that have Apple Silicon and are running macOS 11.4 or later. With Touch ID built into the keyboard, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini with M1 users can now conveniently use Touch ID with an external keyboard.
Nor do I bring you good news in terms of colors. If you were waiting to buy a Magoc Keyboard in green, red or any of the others available that match the new iMac, you should forget about it. For now if you buy the keyboard as a separate accessory, you will only have it in silver. No colors. It would have been nice if they were launched in different colors especially at the price they come with. But it is Apple, capable of the best and the worst, at least in terms of surprises it gives us.
I don’t know if I dare, but Would you buy it?. Why?.
