Four Things That You Did Not Know About The Latest iMac Accessories From Apple – Read All About It Here

Fast charge capability

Apple has outfitted its iMac accessories with a fast charge feature allows all three devices to give a whole month of battery life after they have only been plugged in for two hours. So if our math is correct, then charging for two hours will allow you to use all three accessories for 720 hours, assuming you count 30 days as a single period for a month.

Compatible with OS X 10.11 or later

For all OS X users who have not upgraded their machines to El Capitan, you will run into compatibility issues because Magic Mouse 2, Magic Keyboard or Magic Trackpad 2 will require the latest software in order to work.

Will require Bluetooth 4.0 to work but they are backwards compatible

Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Keyboard are Bluetooth 4.0, but the great thing about them is that they can also work with older Bluetooth standards. The reliability level of how well Apple’s accessories will work while connected to the older standards are not yet known.

Magic Trackpad 2 works differently than the remaining two

Unfortunately, Magic Trackpad 2 is only compatible with Bluetooth 4.0 so if you want all three accessories to work, then you will definitely have to upgrade your iMac.

If you ever intended to purchase the latest accessories from Apple, looks like you have been slightly more educated on how they work and what OS version they will be compatible with. If you wanted to know about the pricing details of each accessory, then they have been listed below.

  • Magic Trackpad 2: $129 (from $69)
  • Magic Keyboard: $99
  • Magic Mouse 2: $79
