Logitech has unveiled a number of Mac-oriented devices, with the MX Master 3 for Mac and MX keys for Max accompanied by the K380 multi-device Bluetooth keyboard for Mac.
The MX Keys and K380 keyboards, as well as the MX Master 3 mouse, have been on the market for quite some time as general purpose peripherals. In new versions of Logitech, the trio has been refined to work better within the Apple ecosystem by benefiting from a number of modifications and other modifications specific to macOS and iPadOS devices.

The multi-computer Flow control allows the keyboard to work with a Flow-compatible mouse, for multi-device calculation. Functional on three devices, the keyboard can automatically switch from one device to another, depending on the screen on which the cursor has been moved.
For the Mac version, Logitech updated it with a Mac layout, with improved customizable keys for any action of the user’s choice. The variant also benefits from USB-C to USB-C charging, with a full charge that can last up to 10 days, or up to five months with backlight off.
It also comes in a space gray finish, to match the appearance of other Apple hardware, and has firmware optimized for Mac use, as well as compatibility with iPadOS devices.
MX keys for Mac, as with other products, will be delivered in July 2020 to the U.S., Canada, and other selected countries, with global availability in August. Logitech fixes the price of MX keys for Mac at $ 99.99.
