Introduced with the redesigned iMac desktops at the Apple Spring Loaded event, the new Magic Keyboard with Touch ID enables fast login to the macOS operating system or approval for App Store purchases. The wonder was whether the new Magic Keyboard could be used on all M1 Mac models.
According to MacRumors, the new Magic Keyboard will be compatible with all M1 Mac models, including iMac, 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Mini. On the other hand, the keyboard lacks Touch ID functionality when intended to be used with Intel-based Macs. Of course, this was not an unexpected thing either.
By the way, although the new wireless keyboard can be used with M1 Macs, it will only ship with the new iMac for now. Note that the new iMac can be configured with three different options, including the standard version with Touch ID, the standard version without Touch ID, and the extended version with Touch ID and numeric keypad.
Meanwhile, Apple has previously offered some accessories exclusively for iMac that can be purchased separately at a later time. For example, when the iMac Pro was released in December 2017, the space gray Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse, and Magic Trackpad only came with the iMac Pro. These products started to be sold separately in March 2018.
