The Apple Magic Keyboard is the current keyboard sold with new desktop Apple Macintosh computers. It is also available separately.
Unlike its predecessor the A1314 MC184LL/B it uses a rechargeable battery. This is difficult to replace but allows the keyboard to have a flatter profile. The left and right cursor keys and the keys on the function-key row are not halved in height. The keys are also slightly larger in size - which is well known to cause more typing errors.
The keyboard uses Bluetooth and pairs automatically to a Macintosh when connected via the charging cable - which requires the use of MacOS X 10.11 "El Capitan" or higher. The cable is only for charging and pairing - there is no USB hub.
