Your new Keyboard and Trackpad have a similar design to them with a wedge shape while the mouse looks identical except for the bottom where batteries once went.

With a month between charges, the lightning adapter used to charge them will come in handy in between time to charge and sync your iPhone:)

“Magic Trackpad 2” also features “Force Touch” which brings a whole new range of features to the Mac experience as we’ve seen from the new Macbook.
