The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2017 kick started from 5th June and Apple Inc. has come up with an interesting line-up this time as well. At the WWDC keynote, Apple had a ton of announcements to make. This is why; the new wireless magic keyboard did not get the limelight that it deserved. But all we can say right now about this new keyboard is that it is the company’s one of the best announcements at the WWDC 2017.
Wireless Magic Keyboard
The new keyboard is somewhat similar to the old magic keyboard, with a Lightning port that powers the internal rechargeable battery. But this time, the wireless magic keyboard gets a dedicated numeric pad and some more function keys.
It also has the home button and the page up and page down buttons. Along with these, the wireless magic keyboard has 4 full-size arrow keys for navigation with proper space, just what they deserve, reports TechCrunch.
It also reports that these arrow keys are likely the most impressive part of Apple’s new keyboard. The new keys replace the up and down arrow keys which were half in size in the old magic keyboard. This means that now you can easily navigate without having to look down; that too in a comfortable way with the help of the new arrow keys. These arrow keys will be really useful while scrolling through websites, files, folders, etc.
The new wireless magic keyboard is packed with a Lightning port just like the old magic keyboard. It has an in-built rechargeable battery. Notably, this battery lasts up to a month or even more between the charges.
