Following the discontinuation of the iMac Pro earlier this year, Apple announced in May that it would also discontinue iMac accessories in space gray. That day has officially come, and the space gray Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse are no longer available to order from Apple.
As he first noticed Appleosophy, the space gray Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad have been removed from Apple’s online store as of this week. Now, if you go to buy Magic accessories, you will only see the silver-white option instead.
On Amazon, the space gray Magic Keyboard in American English is sold out, but the space gray Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad are still available for ordering from Apple’s official storefront. Again, however, they will only be available while stocks last.
If you’re a fan of Apple’s space gray, there are still alternatives to the space gray keyboard that can be nicely paired with your Mac or iPad. One of our favorites here at 9to5Mac is the Satechi Slim X3, which has a space gray design with backlighting and synchronization on multiple devices. We are also big fans of the Satechi X2 which has a silver-black design.
A more affordable option with a wired connection comes from the popular manufacturer of accessories Macally, which also sells a gray spatial gray keyboard with a numeric keypad. There’s also a compact Satechi X1 that costs $ 60.
With the new M1 iMac unveiled in April, Apple also unveiled a new version of the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID, as well as colorful and slightly redesigned versions of the Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse. This accessory, however, is currently only sold with the M1 iMac and is not available separately.
The fact that this space gray is discontinued does not necessarily mean that the future iMac will not be available in space gray. Instead, we would expect the future space gray iMac to include the latest versions of Apple’s peripherals with Touch ID and other changes.
