The Magic Keyboard with Touch ID is a brand of wireless keyboards produced by Apple Inc. It was first released in 2020 as an integrated part of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 processor. Apple has since started offering standalone keyboards for all Macs with Apple Silicon.

Features[]

These Bluetooth keyboards include a Touch ID sensor at the upper right corner of the main key layout. The Lightning port at the back of each keyboard can be connected through a USB-C to Lightning Cable for recharging from a USB-C a power source. The Touch ID sensor requires the presence of Secure Enclave on the processor (Apple Silicon-based, Apple M1 or later).

Updates[]

On April 20, 2021, Apple introduced new Apple M1-based iMacs in assorted color finishes, each with a matching Magic Keyboard with Touch ID. The Touch ID sensor was placed in the location of the eject key, and several function keys were modified. Users can optionally upgrade to a version with a matching numeric keypad at the time of purchase, but these are only available separately in a plain silver color. On standard Magic Keyboards without Touch ID, the eject button was replaced by a Lock Screen button.[1] In October 2021, new 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros were released with integrated Magic Keyboards and Touch ID sensors.[2]
