Apple brings darkness back to its peripherals with a black trackpad

Apple announced a new Mac and a new monitor at its Peek Performance event, but let’s talk about what we’ve all really been hoping for in our hearts: a black version of the Magic Trackpad. Please hold back your applause and let the darkness consume you.

It’s been a second since the company separately sold a dark version of the trackpad. The space gray version (which was decidedly lighter than the version on Apple’s store now) was discontinued early last year. The black and silver version has been available — if you purchased a Mac Pro. In fact, the Mac Pro product page still states that the “matching trackpad can only be purchased with your Mac Pro” at the time of writing. But no one would do that just to have a black trackpad. (Please don’t tell me you would or, worse, have it. I can’t take it mentally.)

Although Apple decoupled the black trackpad from the $6,000 Mac Pro, you’ll still have to pay a higher price for aesthetics, as with the space gray trackpad that came before it. The silver Magic Trackpad is $129, while the black version is $149. Is this the worst way to give $20 to Apple? Absolutely not – I’m sure we all remember the $19 cleaning cloth exists. (Actually, you might want to pick one up if you get a nano-textured studio screen. It comes with one, but it can’t hurt to have extras, can it? ?)

The Magic Mouse is also available in the cool black and silver look, also for a $20 premium over the white version. Unfortunately, you still can’t get the colored versions that come with the iMac M1s. It’s not the most earth-shattering thing about the mouse, though – that (dis)honor belongs to the fact that you still have to flip it over to charge it.
