Along with new iMacs, Apple upgraded its Magic Keyboard, Mouse, and Trackpad on Tuesday. The new versions include built-in rechargeable batteries, and the Magic Trackpad 2 includes Force Touch support.

The new Magic Keyboard 2 uses the same scissor mechanism Apple introduced on its laptop lineup, and reduced the overall footprint by 13 percent without changing the key sizes. Most of that size reduction comes from removing the original keyboard's tube-shaped battery compartment.

The Magic Mouse 2 weighs less and comes with a redesigned foot layout that Apple says offers a smoother glide. The Magic Trackpad 2 is 29 percent larger than the original model and includes Force Touch support, which means Macs that didn't ship with the redesigned trackpad built in can add the feature to their laptop or desktop Mac.

The new devices include a lightning to USB charger cable, and pair automatically when plugged into your Mac. Apple says they'll run for about a month between charges. The Magic Keyboard 2 and Magic Mouse 2 are included with all new iMacs, too.

All of the new Magic accessories are available today. Magic Keyboard 2 is priced at US$99, Magic Mouse 2 costs $79, and Magic Trackpad 2 costs $129.
