Apple’s newest Magic Keyboard with Touch ID integration, which launched alongside the M1 iMac, is now available to purchase by itself, starting at $149. The device works with all machines powered by Apple Silicon.

The M1 iMac became Apple’s first desktop machine with Touch ID support when it launched earlier this year, negating the need to manually enter passwords when logging into websites and making purchases.

That’s all thanks to its new Magic Keyboard with Touch ID, which you can now purchase separately for use with any Apple Silicon machine.

Prices start at $149 for the smaller model, while the larger model with a numeric keypad is priced at $179. Both models are available only in white and silver — the new color options ship only with an M1 iMac.

As things stand, the new Magic Keyboard ships in just one business day for customers in the U.S., and in-store pickup is also available. Before you bag yours, remember you need an M1 machine running macOS 11.4 or later.

You can also get the new Magic Keyboard, with sports more rounded edges, without Touch ID for just $99. A matching Magic Trackpad is priced at $129, while the refreshed Magic Mouse is $99.

Aside from Touch ID integration, the new Magic Keyboard is almost identical to the old one. It features the same layout with a row of multimedia keys at the top of the board, and a Lightning port for charging.
