Magic Keyboard 2 with Touch ID and Numeric Keypad
The Magic Keyboard 2 with Touch ID and Numeric Keypad is a pointing device that was designed, manufactured, and currently sold by Apple since 2021 as part of the Apple Keyboard series. The Keyboard has been introduced on 20 April 2021 alongside all-new iMac, Magic Mouse 2, Magic Trackpad 2 in new colors, and Magic Keyboard 2 with Touch ID. The new Magic Keyboard comes in 7 colors: Blue, Green, Pink, Silver, Yellow, Orange, and Purple. Colors are the same as housing in new color variants of iMacs. A new keyboard will be bundled with color matching iMac. Apple doesn’t confirm if the new Keyboard will be sold separately.
The new Magic Keyboard 2 with Numeric Keypad features the same iconic design as the original Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, new more rounded corners, and new function keys: Emoji, Spotlight, Dictation, Do Not Disturb, and Touch ID. The Touch ID in this keyboard is providing an encrypted channel based on secure wireless fingerprint data transmission by a secure processor built-in in the keyboard and Secure Enclave in M1 chip on the new iMac. Touch ID in Magic Keyboard is working in the same way as in iPhone, iPad Air, or MacBook Pro, and is providing an easy way to unlock your device or make a payment through Apple Pay.
