The Magic Keyboard is a pointing device designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2015 to 2021 as part of the Apple Keyboard series. The Keyboard was introduced on October 13, 2015, alongside new iMacs, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2.

Since its release, the Keyboard has been shipped alongside the Magic Mouse 2 with the iMacs Late 2015 and newer. It can also be purchased as a standalone product for $99.

The Magic Keyboard is similar to its predecessor but it has a lower profile. Apple re-engineered the scissor mechanism to increase key stability by 33 percent and reduce key travel.

The keyboard has a sealed non-replaceable rechargeable Lithium-ion battery which is charged via a Lightning port on the rear of the keyboard. The rechargeable battery lasts one month between charges. It uses an ST Microelectronics STM32F103VB 72 MHz 32-bit RISC ARM Cortex-M3 processor and includes the Broadcom BCM20733 Enhanced Data Rate Bluetooth 3.0 Single-Chip Solution.

The keyboard is compatible with every Mac running OS X 10.11 El Capitan and higher, and the iPad running on iPadOS 13.4 or higher.

On June 5, 2017, the Magic Keyboard received a minor visual update with new Control and Option key symbols.

This Keyboard was discontinued on May 21, 2021 and replaced by the Magic Keyboard 2. Today Magic Keyboard is 8 years old!
