What encryption (if any) is used by Apple bluetooth Magic keyboard (MLA22LL/A) when communicating with MacBook Pro?

I am considering buying magical Keyboard wireless Apple (MLA22LL/A). What (if any) encryption is used by this keyboard blue-tooth when it communicates with the Mac Book Pro?

I have a Mac Book Pro running OS X El Capitan.


The only real encryption it offers is the fact that it pairs with your computer based on a code that you see only on your computer.     There are some wireless keyboards with much more sophisticated cipher such as AES.   Interestingly enough Apple uses AES encryption for its images of which are encrypted disk utility.

When you use a Windows keyboard, you won't get the same start strokes keyboard sequence, and the implementation of the Alt key and the windows are in reverse order of the Mac keyboard functionality.  Many start sequence shortcuts only work on the wired Apple compatible keyboards.   Logitech and compatible third-party Apple MacAlly keyboards.  Microsoft for its own keyboards makes a pilot who will the placement of the button Alt and Windows in the right order.

ALT = key Option from Apple.

Windows = control of Apple key.

  • What means 'magical' for Apple UK Magic Keyboard

    Just a quick warning to those of you in the UK, looking to buy new «Magic Keyboard» Apple I bought one yesterday from John Lewis while he was covered in their guarantee of two years rather than one year Apple warranty. However, on opening the box, I found that the "pound" sign has magically disappeared from the keyboard (with 'euro' adjacent sign). Pressing Shift - 3 always puts me the "pound" sign, but surely to 79GBP Apple might at least splashed by on some buttons with our currency printed on them? The photo of the top is on the keyboard that apple wants to sell to the United Kingdom, while the bottom photo is what they are actually selling. Very misleading.

    Have you had a chance to ask the people of John Lewis they were aware of this discrepancy.   Problem is that if it's a keyboard of Magic 2 and can only be used with El Capitan (10.11.1) it is possible that it is the way they are made these days.   There is a potential saving in the manufacturing sector of not having to do different keyboards for countries with the same language, just because they have different currencies.

  • Why I can't integrate codes on YouTube using Firefox on my desktop, while it works fine on my Macbook Pro with Firefox? This is a recent change.

    Recently, I noticed that when I try to 'share' a YouTube video, and then click the share, I get no embed code. In fact, I get no option at all. And when I tried to share a YouTube playlist, once again, nothing happens except one open box of apparent text I can't type or enter anything in. I use a Macbook Pro at work, with Firefox as my browser and everything works as it should be on YouTube. Since this is a very recent problem with my desktop Dell (Firefox browser) at home, I suspect that something has changed which resulted in my current question. Thanks for any help!

  • HP ENVY 4500 e - all - in - a principle: HELP! Can I use firewire-USB cable to connect the HP Envy 4500 for MacBook Pro?

    Help, please!

    I just bought a FANCY 4500 e-all-in-one printer for use with my MacBook Pro (OSX 10.7.5) during a trip. I use WiFi in the hotel.

    I tried to connect printer and wireless laptop. It is not the case. Printer connects to the network. Mac connects to the network. The 4500 just want stands as a device when it is time to choose a printer.

    I read all the posts proposed, searched the forum looked at HP printer support. I can't find any solution for when this message appears:

    «ATTENTION more than an access point/router wireless was found which corresponds to your wireless network (SSID) name.» If this is not intended, your HP printer can connect to wireless wrong. To avoid this problem, change the name of your wireless network (SSID) to be unique.

    "If you change the name of your network, you need to configure the SSID on all wireless devices to match your new network SSID".

    I guess I can't rename the network name of the hotel's wireless, so I'm ready to go on the road to cable. Envy has a firewire port. My MacBook has just USB.

    ==> Se connect want 4500 and Mac via a USB-to-Firewire my best cable option to print while I'm in the hotel?

    ==> Or there, does anyone know a work around?

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Thank you very much for your answer.

    Ah, Yes. The old Grasshopper see that it is just another form - Type B - USB port on the printer than on his laptop computer.

    Why would I want to connect via WiFi to the hotel? Obviously because I was not think properly.

    Thank you for your patience and response.

    I click resolved when I print from my laptop.

    First of all, he is out to buy a USB cable.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Can I use a Microsoft Bluetooth mobile keyboard 5000 with my blackberry bold 9900 phone?

    I was wondering if I can use a keyboard microsoft bluetooth mobile keyboard 5000 with my Blackberry Bold 9900 phone?  When I go to the pair, the phone finds the Microsoft keyboard, but he asks me a key digital authentication, then for an alphanumeric password.

    Keyboard manual says that if you are asked an authentication key, let the program create, but my Blackberry does not create anything, he's looking for the authentication key.

    It is a company phone.  Should I contact my COMPUTER tech support to see if they can shed some light on this or did someone here knows what I can do to remedy this?

    Or am I wrong in assuming that I can use the mobile keyboard with Blackberry?

    Thanks in advance for your help.


    That the keyboard does not support the Bluetooth HID profile.  BlackBerry requires Bluetooth SPP profile.

  • Failure of Adobe Camera Raw 9.3 dmg for Sony RX1RII with MacBook Pro OSX El Capitan 10.11.5 [using the CS6]

    While Adobe says his record the FIRST 9.3 update plug-in for Adobe Photoshop CS6 (Extended) strives to convert directly from the RXRII of Sony camera RAW files, is not. Maybe my MacBook Pro OSX El Capitan 10.11.5 exceeds the 10.11 noticed on the Adobe Camera Raw graph?

    Please notify.

    CS6 can only be updated up to a maximum of ACR 9.1.1 to install cab 9.3 in CS6, attempts fail.  You can check which version you have by any plug-in / Camera Raw (I think on a Mac).

    You can register CC ([email protected]$120/yr=$10/mo is the least expensive) or use the DNG Converter to DNG for raw files and the DNG, but not the native raws, open in your older software.

  • Apple TV with MacBook Pro but without TV

    Hello. I got an Apple TV, and I have a MacBook Pro 2015. But I do not have a HDTV television.

    Can I connect the device to Apple TV on my Mac and discover my Mac as a TV?

    I tried and played with System Prefs - display - mirrored, but no screen appeared on my Mac.

    Thank you.

    The Apple TV is designed to bring the 'smart' technology to the big screen in your living room.  Everything you access the ATV is already available on the MacBook.  You AirPlay of MacBook/iPad/iPhone to the Apple TV, but you can not AirPlay of Apple TV to an iPhone/iPad/MacBook...

    No, you cannot connect an ATV to view on a MacBook...


    I'm trying to print envelopes of invitation with my HP using MacBook Pro 7525.  I tried the main tray, but I get an error message about the Photo tray.  I'll cancel the print job, and then try the Photo tray, but the envelope comes out without printing.

    If another program does not work, here are a few steps to try, in order:

    1. Mac OS X: how to reset the printing system
    2. Repair disk permissions

    5. In addition, to download this driver: HP v3.0 for OS X printer drivers

  • Can I use 4 apple tv remote to operate the devices homekit with siri?

    I just bought a 4th gen Apple TV and I'm experimenting with everything that can make the Siri to button on the remote control.  I tried to use it to turn my lights on and outside, and I received the message "Sorry, I can't help with HomeKit here."  Am I reason to assume this isn't allowed / supported?  Curious to know why, as the Apple TV also serves as the gateway so that I can control my HomeKt remote devices from my phone (which is currently working).

    Thank you!


    That is right. Although the ATV4 HomeKit capable Siri on tvOS is not yet supported. My hypothesis is that Siri visibility will increase.  Just as the music was not included until 9.1. I expect more integration through software updates.  That said, being a user forum, and not something I've seen confirmed by Apple...
