Amid the WWDC furor, Apple quietly released a new wireless keyboard with a first-ever numeric keypad. Previous models only included the keyboard, with a numeric keypad sold separately. It’s available to buy today for US$129.

The numeric keypad is great for spreadsheets, finance apps and other numeral-heavy applications. The new keyboard’s battery lasts a full month in-between charges using a Lightning port. Unlike with the AirPods, there is no shipping delay on this new product, so check it out in the Apple Store.

    Single handedly the biggest news of the day!!!! Our long numeric-keypad-less nightmare is over!!!! Hallelujah!!!!

    This bit of news is the best evidence that Apple might be getting serious about Pros again! Now will they make the MacBoo Pro’s SSD upgradeable?

    I hope this means people will be dumping their Apple wired keyboards with numeric keypads; maybe the eBay prices will drop.

    Did they say anything about these shipping with new Macs?

    No, not the first ever. But even so, a very welcome addition. It’s about time for sure, but I’m also extremely annoyed that Apple has stubbornly refused to offer a wireless numeric keypad option for the past ten years.

    But, where’s the backlit option?

    Sooooo don’t get this mission-critical feature that continues to be MIA from a supposed tech-leading company.
