  • Code in OS X 10.11.1 Betas Reveals Apple is Working on New Magic Mouse & Keyboard


    OS X 10.11.1, which is currently in its beta stages, has been discovered to house code related to upcoming Apple accessories for Macs that have yet to be announced. Among those referenced are the Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Keyboard, as first pointed out by Consomac.

    Apple currently offers a wireless keyboard, which runs on dated buy-by-the-pack batteries, as well as a Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad, but future accessories may be powered similarly to modern Apple accessories, using a lithium-ion internal battery pack and a Lightning port for charging, much like the new Apple TV remote, or the iPad Pro's Apple Pencil. The device will also likely get new Bluetooth low-energy support, making them much more battery efficient than current models.

    It has been rumored that a new 4K 21.5-inch iMac may go on sale next week, and it's possible that these accessories may launch alongside the new iMac and OS X 10.11.1.

    Despite the OS X 10.11.1 requirements, these accessories are likely to work with all Macs that include Bluetooth low energy support.

      Why do they insist on that lightning connector crap?

      What's the problem with a rechargeable battery that lasts for months at a time as opposed to buying packs of batteries?

      Because the type of battery within has a requirement that a lightning connector must be the appropriate consumer interface?

      You haven't figured that out by now? It's so they can charge you 15 for a cable. The same reason nearly every update blocks unofficial cables from being used. Why let you buy a charging cable for 2 when THEY can sell you one for 15?!
