The Apple Wireless Aluminum Keyboard is a pointing device that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2007 to 2015 as part of the Apple Keyboard series. The Keyboard has been introduced on August 7, 2007, and its price started at $79.
Like the wired Apple Keyboard, the new model is thinner than its predecessors and has an aluminum enclosure. Another addition is the new functions added to the function keys, such as media controls and Dashboard control. Unlike the previous version, the Wireless Keyboard now has a layout similar to the MacBook.
The power button has been relocated to the right side of the keyboard, and the layout does not include a numeric keypad. This model added accidental caps lock prevention: the key has to be held down for a moment for the caps lock to engage. This keyboard required only three AA batteries, one fewer than its predecessor.
This Keyboard has been discontinued on October 13, 2015.
Today Apple Wireless Aluminum Keyboard is 15 years old!
