The new Apple Keyboards are features the similar design as the keys in MacBook. The wired version has full key layout with document navigation controls and a numeric keypad. The wireless keyboard features compact low profile design. There's also an intelligent power management built-in that conserves battery life by automatically powering down the keyboard while not using it.

There are also some minor changes to the keyboard layout.

The most noticeable one should be the disappearing of Apple logo on the Command key ( cmd ), instead, the word “command” is printed. We always insist that the cmd is called “command” key, not “Apple” key.
