On Tuesday, Apple finally made several of its Mac accessories available in its signature black-and-silver colour combination known as “space grey.”
An Apple spokesperson confirmed the news with Business Insider: “As we normally do with the input devices that we provide in-box, we are now offering the Space Grey Magic Mouse 2, Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, and Magic Trackpad 2 as standalone accessories on Apple.com.”
The introduction of the space-grey Mac accessories comes only a few months after the space-grey keyboard, mouse, and trackpad were being resold for as much as $US1,525 on eBay, because Apple only offered them with the purchase of a Space Grey $US5,000 iMac Pro, making them relatively rare.
Here’s a first look at the new space-grey accessories you can buy:
The Space Grey version of the Magic Keyboard has a numeric pad. The smaller Magic Keyboard, without the numeric pad, is not yet available in Space Grey.
Aside from the colour, these accessories are the same as the standard silver-and-white models in every other way.
The new space grey accessories are $US20 more expensive than their default counterparts, so the $US129 keyboard costs $US149 if you want it in space grey, the $US79 Magic Mouse 2 costs $US99 in space grey, and so on.
The space grey colour was first introduced for the iPhone 5s and iPod Touch in 2013, and quickly became a fan favourite. The colour combo has gone through a few iterations since then, most recently with the introduction of the first Space Grey MacBooks in 2015.
The same dark aluminium used on the most recent MacBook is incorporated into the new accessories, including the Magic Mouse 2.
At the time of publishing, there was a residual eBay listing for a new space-grey Magic Trackpad 2 (which came with the new iMac Pro) for $US398.49, more than twice the price on Apple’s website.
Apple wouldn’t confirm whether the accessories will be available in stores, but for the hardcore space-grey fanatics, head on over to Apple.com and help yourself.
