Apple has started selling Magic Keyboard with Touch ID in its stores. Until recently, a branded keyboard with a built-in fingerprint scanner could only be purchased bundled with the new iMacs, which were introduced this spring. However, now the situation has changed.
The Magic Keyboard with Touch ID and Numeric Keypad is available from the Apple Online Store for $179, while the “shorter” keyboard without additional keys is $30 less. When ordering, users can immediately apply additional letters to the buttons. There are 15 different languages to choose from, including Russian. True, while only white keyboards are available in the Apple Online Store.
It is worth remembering that the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID is only compatible with the latest Apple computers. Simply put, you’ll need a Mac with an M1 chip or later to use the built-in fingerprint scanner. On computers with Intel processors, the keyboard will also work. But in this case, you will have to forget about Touch ID.
As for the “regular” Magic Keyboards without a built-in fingerprint scanner, they are still available in the Apple Online Store. Their prices start at $99.
