Apple Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Mouse 2 Review

Bye bye batteries. Apple's trio of peripherals - the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2 - have had a revamp, borrowing convenience tech from the iPhone. Most noticeable is the move away from user-replaceable batteries, with the three devices all getting li-ion packs just as you'd find squeezed into the narrow frame of the iPhone 6s. That's not the only change, mind, though the extent to which your fingers will be happy will depend on how well you got on with the old designs.

Microsoft’s folding Bluetooth keyboard plays nice with all

Microsoft's Universal Folding Keyboard has finally hit store shelves, with the platform-agnostic wireless peripheral playing nicely with phones and tablets. Shown off back in March alongside a pair of midrange Lumia phones, the keyboard hooks up over Bluetooth and has a dedicated switching button at the top which allows it to flick between two different devices.

Don’t worry, Kim Kardashian, BlackBerry is coming for you

BlackBerry boss John Chen has promised an old-school handset for QWERTY lovers, penning an open-letter to fans of the form-factor in which he expresses his hopes that the BlackBerry Classic will fit the bill.

Microsoft keyboard brings Android, iOS together

Modern mobile devices are often referred to as “computers in your pocket”. Though a bit tongue-in-cheek, that’s a fairly apt assessment. With powerful SoCs like Qualcomm’s Snapdragon, you can already do quite a bit from a tablet or smartphone. With that in mind, Microsoft now has a true cross-platform keyboard.
