Apple's new dark grey keyboard and mouse are beautiful, but they will cost you $5,000

Apple announced a beautiful new Space Grey colour option for its Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad, but there’s just one catch: Those accessories won’t be sold separately from the new $US5,000 iMac Pro.

We first learned about this on 9to5Mac and Digital Trends and reached out to Apple to confirm.

Essentially, that means you’ll have to drop $US5,000 if you really want the new Space Grey accessories. But look at the bright side: At least you get an awesome and powerful all-in-one computer with a 5K resolution screen to sweeten the deal!

Yes, I’m being facetious and I’m certainly not suggesting someone buy a $US5,000 computer just for its accessories. I suppose it’s Apple’s way of making the new Space Grey accessories more “exclusive” in the same way the Product (RED) iPhone 7 only comes in the more expensive 128GB option. And of course, you don’t have to drop $US5,000 to get these accessories — they might show up on sites like eBay at some point, but don’t expect them to be easy to find, or cheap to obtain.

At the same time, a Space Grey keyboard and mouse would sure go nicely with a Space Grey MacBook Pro, which doesn’t come with exclusive accessories. With the Space Grey MacBook Pros in mind, it’s somewhat odd that Apple isn’t offering its Space Grey accessories separately.

Something to note, however, is that the Space Grey Magic Trackpad is not included with the iMac Pro, which suggests it might be sold separately from the iMac Pro. Unless Apple somehow prevents people from buying the Space Grey Magic Trackpad 2 unless they have an iMac Pro, we could see the Space Grey Magic Trackpad 2 as a purchasable accessory.

Here’s to hoping.
