    What's the perfect accessory for your new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus?

    That would be one of the new iMacs, of course.

    "CUPERTINO, California — October 13, 2015 — Apple® today updated the entire iMac® family, bringing a stunning new Retina® 4K display to the 21.5-inch iMac for the first time and the Retina 5K display to every 27-inch iMac. The new Retina displays make photos and videos more immersive and true-to-life thanks to a wider color gamut and spectacular image quality. The updated iMacs also feature more powerful processors and graphics, two Thunderbolt® 2 ports and new storage options that make the high-performance Fusion Drive even more affordable."

    Here are ten important facts about the new Magic input devices announced today

    #6:

    "They all have fast charging – 2 minute charge on these devices gives all-day battery life while 2 hours allows a full month of usage. That’s correct, you read that right. Now give me that technology in an iPhone, Apple."

    Amen to that, Redmond Pie. Amen to that.

    Sure, you could have one-month battery life with this technology on a phone, but try to imagine the weight and size of the battery required to power it for that length of time considering that has a screen and is capable of doing immensely more than a mouse.

    I am quite disappointed that the keyboard doesn't have backlit keys. That would have been an instabuy. As it is... no thanks.

    Agreed. I can't believe Apple doesn't offer a keyboard with backlit keys like their MBPs have. I'm sticking with my Logitech.
