The Apple Magic Keyboard is the current computer keyboard produced by Apple Inc. It was released alongside the Magic Mouse 2 and the Magic Trackpad 2. It is the successor to the Apple Wireless Keyboard.
The Magic keyboard is similar to its predecessor but it has a lower profile. Apple reengineered the scissor mechanism to increase key stability by 33 percent and reduce key travel.
It has a sealed non-replaceable rechargeable Lithium-ion battery which is charged through a Lightning Connector in the middle rear of the keyboard. The rechargeable battery lasts one month between charges.
The keyboard is compatible with Apple Macintosh desktop and laptop computers running Mac OS X El Capitan versions 10.11 and higher, with iPhones and iPads running iOS 9 or later, and Apple TVs running Apple TV Software 7.0 or later or tvOS 10.
On June 5, 2017 the Magic Keyboard received a visual update; both the Control and the Option keys received new symbols.
