The Magic Keyboard with Touch ID Will be a $50 Upgrade for the Base Model 24-inch iMac

Today, we are learning that the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID is going to be a $50 upgrade if you are going with the base model 24-inch iMac. However, it is worth mentioning here that the higher-end models ship with the Touch ID keyboard as standard.

This keyboard will be a $80 upgrade if you own the base model iMac. Interestingly, it will cost you just $30 to upgrade to it if you have a higher-end iMac.
