Product Information

  • Use the Apple Wireless Keyboard on your desk, on your lap, or anywhere within 30 feet of your Mac or iPad — all because of its built-in Bluetooth technology. Its compact design takes up 24 percent less space on your desktop than full-size keyboards, so you have extra room to move the keyboard around and mouse comfortably alongside of it. You’ll also feel a difference when you type on its low-profile anodized aluminum enclosure with crisp, responsive keys. Use the function keys for one-touch access to a variety of Mac features such as screen brightness, volume, eject, play/pause, Mission Control, and Launchpad.

    The Apple Wireless Keyboard requires just two AA batteries — one less than the previous model. And its intelligent power management system conserves battery life. So when you’re not using the keyboard, it automatically powers down. The instant you start typing, it turns back on. Use the on/off switch when you're away from your computer for a long time.

  • Best keyboard I have used.

    I can type on this keyboard faster and with fewer mistakes than any other I have used. I used to think the keyboard in my old Pow I can type on this keyboard faster and with fewer mistakes than any other I have used. I used to think the keyboard in my old Powerbook G4 was the best I had used, until this was released. The response is great and keys are springy and always register a click. I like this keyboard so much that I bought one for work, with my own money, rather than use the cheap office one.

    The battery life is great and a huge improvement over the first wireless keyboard. I think I change the batteries after four months and that is will daily use and I use it a lot, but can't remember it's so infrequent.

    It's great at a desk and now I use it on the couch on my lap, with the Mac Mini connected to my TV. Same size keys as a regular keyboard, but small enough to tuck into the end of the coffee-table when not in use. Love that it goes into a stand-by/sleep mode and I never need to turn it off. Just stop using it and then tuck it away. No delay or waiting for it to re-connect when I come back to use it hours or a day later. If only there was a model with a touchpad (hint, hint).

The wireless keyboard (as well as the wired keyboard) have virtually the same layout, save the function button, smaller control and alt keys, and small arrow-pad. This means that as I move from laptop-keyboard to wireless-keyboard, I do not have to adjust my typing habits to compensate for altered ergonomics.

    The tactile response of the keys is noticeable yet not wearisome.

    Bluetooth distance has never been a problem for me even paired with an tower outfitted with an external USB bluetooth dongle.

    I am a daily user and have replaced the batteries in my laptop twice in about 7 months.

    No gripes here.

    1) it required three batteries which was a pain.
    2) it's so perfect that it spoils you and quickly makes you not like other keyboards including the full size keyboard with the function keys so far away from typing position.

    Typing with this keyboard as we speak. I just may go back and get this Logitech keyboard that I saw that was about the same size Typing with this keyboard as we speak. I just may go back and get this Logitech keyboard that I saw that was about the same size but a lot cheaper. If end up liking it, this thing is going back. If you are use to typing on your laptop keyboard especially, this will take some adjusting. The keys aren't positioned as you would find on your keyboard. This is to be expected especially given the small form factor the wireless keyboard is.

    So far, I love that it's bluetooth and doesn't require a wireless dongle. Still the $70 for this is way over priced for this thing. But at least I know what typing on one of these things is like.

    Decent but that's just about it. Save your money and get something else.

    I really wish they would make a keyboard that's rechargeable with the same charger as the iPhone 5/6. Another thing I'd recommend I really wish they would make a keyboard that's rechargeable with the same charger as the iPhone 5/6. Another thing I'd recommend is backlit keys like the laptops as well as the ability able to plug the keyboard directly into your phone to type faster emails. Other then that it's efficient having a keyboard that has the same layout as your MacBook.

    Someone else commented this keyboard is good, not great; and we want great. Agreed! Gets the job done, but tears through batteries Someone else commented this keyboard is good, not great; and we want great. Agreed! Gets the job done, but tears through batteries and is not even backlit. Speaking of not even backlit: Come on, guys, and give this little keyboard some shine! Apple can do better, and my wallet concurs. Decent, not fab.
