Apple Intros Magic Keyboard, Mouse 2 and Trackpad 2
Wednesday, October 14th, 2015
Posted by: Staff

Apple today introduced a new lineup of wireless accessories including the all-new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2. The Magic devices have been redesigned to feel more comfortable than ever, and feature rechargeable batteries that completely eliminate the need for disposable batteries. The new Magic Trackpad 2 also brings Apple's revolutionary Force Touch interface to the desktop.

The all-new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2 are more comfortable, capable and environmentally friendly. Designed around a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, all three accessories eliminate the need for disposable batteries and feature a noticeably more solid internal structure and quality feel. The new Magic Keyboard features a full-size keyboard in a sleek new design that takes up 13 percent less space on your desktop. With a new scissor mechanism and lower profile, the Magic Keyboard provides an incredibly stable, precise and comfortable typing experience. The new Magic Mouse 2 is lighter, sturdier and features an optimized foot design for a smoother glide.

The new Magic Trackpad 2 features a 29 percent larger surface and brings Force Touch to the desktop for the first time. Force Touch enables a range of new ways to interact with your Mac, including the new Force click to quickly look up a word, preview a file or bring up a map from an address. The new Magic devices pair instantly with your Mac as soon as they are plugged in via the Lightning-to-USB charging cable, and can last about a month or more on a full charge.

The new Magic accessories are also available at Apple.com, Apple's retail stores and select Apple Authorized Resellers. Magic Keyboard is available starting today for $99. Magic Mouse 2 is available starting today for $79. And the Magic Trackpad 2 is available starting today for $129.

Maybe you never read the links in the original post, so here it is again.
Some of the added new features highlighted.
-------------------
Redesigned and rechargeable, Magic Trackpad 2 includes a built-in battery and brings Force Touch to the desktop for the first time. Four force sensors underneath the trackpad surface allow you to click anywhere, and detect subtle differences in the amount of pressure you apply, bringing increased functionality to your fingertips and enabling a deeper connection to your content. Magic Trackpad 2 also features an edge-to-edge glass surface area that is nearly 30 percent larger than the previous trackpad. This design, along with a lower profile, makes scrolling and swiping through your favorite content more productive and comfortable than ever.

Magic Trackpad 2 pairs automatically with your Mac, so you can get to work right away. And the battery will power your Magic Trackpad 2 for about a month or more before needing a recharge.

Just now noticed this...
System requirements
"Bluetooth 4.0-enabled Mac computer with OS X v10.11 or later "

Now that is a deal breaker for me, at least at present.

Thanks for your answer back to me. Do you think this new trackpad is better for people with severe Carpel Tunnel Syndrome than the old one?

You would probably be best served speaking to your physician or physical therapist or perhaps using the internet to search.

The keyboard is horrible. The keys have no travel like the new Macbook. Sad
