Apple is discontinuing the Space Gray versions of its iMac Pro accessories, but you can still get hold of them for as long as existing stocks last.
Apple is discontinuing its Space Gray set of accessories for the iMac Pro, including the Magic Mouse 2, the Magic Keyboard, and the Magic Trackpad 2. The discontinuation follows that of the iMac Pro earlier this year, which was the only Space Gray Mac that Apple produced. Fans of the Space Gray color option can get their hands on the accessories for as long as stocks last.
Apple confirmed the discontinuation of the iMac Pro back in March. The company put up a “while supplies last” notice on the product’s store page, but it is now out of stock. At the time, it was suggested the move may have been due to a lack of interest in the high-end Mac. However, Apple soon launched the new M1 iMac in April, creating a more than adequate replacement for 2017’s iMac Pro. The new device also came with a new set of accessories, including a Magic Trackpad, Magic Mouse, and Magic Keyboard, making the iMac Pro’s older accessories more redundant.
Spotted first by MacRumors, the iMac Pro’s Space Gray accessories are now listed as “while supplies last.” Any customers who want to grab the Magic Mouse 2, Magic Keyboard, and Magic Trackpad should act quickly, as it’s not clear how much remaining stock of each there is and The Verge has confirmed with Apple that once they’re gone, they’re gone. The Magic Mouse 2 retails for $99, the Magic Keyboard for $149, and the Magic Trackpad 2 also for $149.
Apple’s New Mac Accessories
The newly released set of accessories comes with a notable difference: a wider variety of color options. Apple’s event in May pushed for more colors, especially for the new M1 iMac models. Apple is seemingly going back to its roots, allowing users to express their personalities through the new colors.
However, beyond the additional color options, only the Magic Keyboard has had a substantial upgrade to its hardware. The accessory can now be purchased with Touch ID features and is available in three variations: standard, standard with Touch ID, and full-sized with Touch ID. It also comes with dictation, do not disturb, emojis, lock, and Spotlight keys.
The Space Gray versions don’t differ all too greatly from the new ones. While the new M1 chips offer a big improvement in performance, the accessories have yet to catch up and Apple’s old Space Gray variants are still adequate performers for the current generation of devices.
