Apple’s new Magic Mouse and Keyboard still use Lightning cables
Talk about a juggling act.
In the world of tech where change is the only constant, Apple seems to be playing a different game – the game of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” And by ‘it,’ we mean the Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad, and Magic Keyboard.
Yup, despite the rampant rumors, Apple decided not to update these accessories to USB-C charging. Instead, they’re sticking to the good old Lightning cable.
With the release of the new 24-inch iMac, many were expecting a revamp of these accessories. But alas, no such luck.
So, if you’re an iMac owner with an iPhone that charges via USB-C, you’ll need to keep a Lightning cable handy for your accessories. Talk about a juggling act.
And here’s the kicker – Apple had a golden opportunity to redesign the Magic Mouse and relocate its charging port. But they chose to stick with the “curious” design decision. Well, we can’t help but wonder what’s cooking in the Apple kitchen.
As per new EU laws, these accessories have until the end of 2024 to switch to USB-C. But as we all know, Apple plays by its own rules. Representatives for Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
