If you own an iMac or Mac Pro, you prob­a­bly al­ready own an Ap­ple-made Blue­tooth key­board, mouse or track­pad, but if you don’t – or you fancy up­grad­ing what­ever al­ter­na­tive you have – then their re­cently up­graded suc­ces­sors are well

worth a look. The Magic Mouse 2 (£65, ap­ple.co/1R2Ua8e) is now lighter, has an im­proved foot de­sign and comes with a built-in recharge­able bat­tery, while the Magic Track­pad 2 (£109, ap­ple.co/24NRVjm) also has an in­te­grated bat­tery, an edge-to-edge glass sur­face and, cru­cially, in­cludes four pres­sure-sen­si­tive sen­sors that bring Force Touch to desk­top Macs. The Magic Key­board (£79, ap­ple. co/1R2Vfg6) has scis­sor-ac­tion key mech­a­nisms for smoother, faster typ­ing and, again, a built-in recharge­able bat­tery. If you’re feel­ing cre­ative, con­sider a graph­ics tablet like Wa­com’s In­tuos Pro (£251, amzn.to/ 1R2Wa08), which in­cludes a wire­less kit so you can work ca­ble-free. Its sty­lus of­fers 2,048 lev­els of pres­sure sen­si­tiv­ity, while also of­fer­ing a wealth of dif­fer­ent brush, pen and pen nib styles.

Mod­ern graph­ics tablets talk to your Mac with­out a ca­ble.
