Apple Magic Keyboard Keyguard (2015 - 2021)


Adding to cart… The item has been added

This keyguard fits the Apple Magic Keyboard up through early 2021.  The keyboard is rechargeable through the Lightning port on the back.  This does not fit the Apple Wireless Keyboard, nor the Apple Magic Keyboard introduced in 2021 (with USB-C charging), nor the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID

Note in the pictures how the keys in the 4 corners of the keyboard have slightly rounded corners, all 4 being the same radius.  The Magic Keyboard 3 has much more rounded outside corners on the 4 keys in the corners.  This keyguard will not fit that keyboard.

This item does not come with a keyboard. This is to order the keyguard only.

This keyguard comes with no attachment method.  While gravity will hold the keyguard in place, most users prefer to stick it to the keyboard with tape or a mounting putty like Blu-Tack.  The keypad versions have room for a small amount of suction cup tape.  The standard versions do not.

Version -  Choose either the standard version or the keypad version, depending on whether your keyboard has a numeric keypad on the right.  Available in either US English or British English versions.

Size - The default size of the keyguard is the same as the keyboard.  You may optionally choose to add an oversized flange which adds an additional rim around the perimeter, extending beyond the keyboard and containing optional holes which you can use to devise your own mounting method.  These holes are 0.19" in diameter and fit a #10 machine screw.  Our screw kits fit these holes.

Material - The keys are just under 1/8" high, so if you pick an 1/8" material, the top of the keys will be just below the surface of the keyboard.  Most people prefer a material of 3/16" or greater, to give a little depth to the holes, requiring a more deliberate touch. 1/4" materials make for even deeper holes. A popular choice is polycarbonate, which has a lifetime guarantee against breakage and nice, bevelled edges which make the keyguard softer to the touch.
