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.

  • 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.

  • The Apple Magic Keyboard can operate without bluetooth when connected to an iPad with the lightning to the USB camera adapter?

    The Apple Magic Keyboard can operate without bluetooth when connected to an iPad with the lightning to the USB camera adapter?

    I love the Apple Magic Keyboard to be very light (I want it with me everywhere). I also like that I can choose the layout of the keyboard I want (Canadian multilingual), which is not available on any keyboard for any brand, with the exception of Apple iPad (and I did a ton of research). I have problems with the old model of keyboard Apple Wireless because of the Bluetooth connection: I often have trouble connecting. I want a reliable keyboard. I don't like having to plug the keyboard on the iPad, and I think that a wired keyboard can more reliable and safer than a wireless keyboard. And a wired keyboard never had battery problems.

    I read that the Apple Magic Keyboard can work wired with a Mac without bluetooth. And I read that some USB keyboards work with lightning to the USB camera adapter. There are several keyboards with a cable (Belkin or Logitech) lightning, but none with the available Canadian multilingual.

    So, if I buy a magical keyboard Apple and a Flash to the USB adapter of the camera, according to my needs, I'll be satisfied or I'm going to be disappointed?

    A better solution would be to have a male-male cable lightning between the keyboard and the iPad, but I don't find any of these products anywhere.

    Thank you.

    It will not work. And where did you read that the keyboard works wired with a Mac?

  • Apple Magic Keyboard 2 (2016) detects only no more than 3 keys at the same time!

    Hello. So I don't know if there is a solution to this, but I played on my macbook pro 15 inch 2015 model very well and I was pressing 'x', 'w' + 'shift' + 'space' at the same time and four keys were detected by the game, and it worked. After I while I bought the new magical keyboard 2 (2016) and connected to my laptop. I played the same game and based on the same key combination ('x', 'w' + 'shift' + 'space'), but only 'w' + 'x' + 'space' got detected and played. Is it possible to fix this? Thanks for the future replies!

    If you still use Yosemite, as shown in your profile, you can find (if you look at the box) that the keyboard of Magic 2 is planned for El Capitan.   You should go if you want to get the best out of it.   I can't speak for specific failures, but there have been similar problems with the Magic Mouse 2 where the upgrade it is resolved.

  • new magical keyboard works, but bluetooth is no found on keyboard.

    2008 IMac 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM OSXEl Capitan 10.11.3.   computer checked at the genius bar 09/03/16 ok but keyboard problems & mouse so I bought the magic mouse & keyboard which seem to work well.  After 5 weeks the computer does not seem to be constantly adapted to the mouse.  went to preferences system & mouse and said 44% battery so I recharged yesterday.  So far, it seems to be ok now.

  • How can I repair my broken Magic Keyboard and Mouse?

    My niece who is 23 years younger than broken me my Apple Magic keyboard and mouse Magic Mouse from Apple for my iMac, and all of them are not in stock because they are used on Mac computers, and I don't want to lose a keyboard and a mouse, another Mac as on my Mac Pro. She said I was due, but I SLEEP, then all of a sudden, I heard the noise. Is there warranty for the keyboard and mouse? How can I replace it with Apple because she says it's worth $ 5, and piano of plastic doll is worth $ 500 and the cheap plastic. Should I go to the Genius Bar because the keys are gone, and the mouse is broken.

    Apple does not cover such damages, regardless of warranty.

    You can buy new online through a variety of websites looking for them online, that they do not have to come from Apple.com. Stores of brick and mortar like best buy or Wal-Mart can take so if an Apple Store is not an option. There are also alternatives and sometimes a lot less expensive replacements through various vendors such as Microsoft and Targus just to name a few.

    How will I know if my magic keyboard is in charge? And how know when it is done load so I can unplug the charger of lightning?

    I remember reading that the charging time is about two hours.   If you have exhausted the battery it may well take longer.    After the period of two hours, he must run for about a month in any case if you could take the charger after 2 hours.    But I remember also as statements using the old MM1 mouse with rechargeable batteries Apple and stand-alone charger.    MIne has quickly reduced by about 14 days and now its down to 7 days.

  • Magic keyboard doesn't work don't perfectly with Mac-mini mid 2011

    I am running the latest version of El Capitan (OS 10.11)

    The system version: OS X 10.11 (15A279b)
    Kernel version: Darwin 15.0.0
    Apple Bluetooth software: 4.4.0f4 16320

    These correspond to the requirements of Magic Keyboard (Mac computer compatible Bluetooth with v10.11 OS X or later) according to Apple documentation official http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MLA22LL/A/magic-keyboard-us-english

    If I followed the instructions to connect the keyboard up via Thunderbolt, the keyboard works partially. I can type via Bluetooth.

    However, I can't use the volume buttons to control the sound. When I try to assign or reassign the buttons, I discovered that I can't 'see' the keyboard in Control Panel.

    So, I find it very strange and of course disappointing. I can use Bluetooth, but not make the best use of the characteristics of the material. So sorry to say this, but it feels more like Linux where drivers regularly can make full use of the material and do not like Apple where it should all be integrated from top to bottom.

    The ideas or support would be appreciated.


    PS I have the same problem with the new Magic Trackpad. So it's more than 200 euros for the minimum functions

    If I followed the instructions to connect the keyboard up via Thunderbolt,

    It be USB to lightning, Thunderbolt.

    Check that this block is not checked. You can also try to check it out and then unchecking it.

    PS You should also upgrade to the current version of El Capitan, 10.11.2, build 15 c 50. Updates cover a lot of previous bugs and problems. "15A279b" is not the latest version.

  • iPad Pro / Magic Keyboard | Change the language

    Hi all

    I recently bought the Magic Keyboard (presentation in French) and I want to type on my IPad Pro. And here is my problem: when I need to type in a different language (e.g. English instead of French), I change the language of the dictionary and it automatically changes the physical keyboard! So, it makes the keyboard "French" of magic almost unusable for any other language (I have to "guess" where are the letters). The "Hardware keyboard" menu (general / keyboard) does not allow me to set a default physical keyboard that remains the same when I change language...

    Thanks in advance!

    You gave just the physical keyboard to the French for each software keyboard separately.  There should be no problem it.   Let me know if you can't see how that works...
