Apple has revealed three new ‘magic’ input accessories that go alongside its refreshed 21.5- and 27-inch iMacs – the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2.

All three devices are the first upgrades to their predecessors in years and have been tweaked to support the iMac’s new updates. The new keyboard has been redesigned and features new keys to increase stability, while the trackpad now supports Apple’s Force Touch. The mouse looks the same on the outside, but has been upgraded internally.

You’ll get two of these products in the box if you order one of the new iMacs – the Magic Keyboard and you can choose between the Magic Trackpad 2 and the Magic Mouse 2.

If you are buying them separately, the keyboard will set you back $99 and the mouse costs $79, while the trackpad is the most expensive at $129. Your older Mac will need to be running El Capitan to support the devices as well.

Each device now comes with rechargeable lithium ion batteries, which can be juiced up through a standard USB Lightning cable – no more wandering around the office looking for AA batteries on a Monday morning anymore.
