A few months ago, we saw by Apple the presentation of the new iMac, a computer that incorporated a new design in different colors and that soon became popular. Among other novelties, highlights the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID, the evolution of the Magic Keyboard that now incorporates a fingerprint sensor to be able to use the equipment in a faster way.
Although not all models incorporate it, the truth is that many users see this keyboard as a good option for their Mac computers. However, the truth is that neither the compatibility nor the price of this keyboard is something that is curdling quite well among users in many countries, although if you want you will be able to buy it for your computer.
A Magic Keyboard with Touch ID that is not compatible with all Mac computers despite its price
As we mentioned, recently apple has launched the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID in its store, already being possible to acquire it in the vast majority of countries. It is the same model that is included with the iMac, although it is true that in this case it is only available in white and does not match the computer.
The design of the keyboard in question is exactly the same as that of Apple’s Magic Keyboard, a keyboard that the firm continues to sell. In this case, the keyboard without Touch ID with Bluetooth can be purchased for 109 euros in the Apple Store Online, while If you choose the version with Touch ID, the price shoots up to 159 euros, something that also happens in other countries proportionally.
However, the price increase factor is not the only thing to consider. In this case, Touch ID keyboard is not supported on Macs with an Intel processorIt can only be used with computers that have an Apple Silicon chip, such as the M1. This reduces the list of compatible equipment to the following:
- MacBook Air (M1, 2020)
- MacBook Pro (13-inch, M1, 2020)
- iMac (24-inch, M1, 2021)
- Mac mini (M1, 2020)
Thus, it is very important that you take this factor into account before investing in the new keyboard Apple, which by the way is currently not available on other platforms beyond the Apple Store Online.
