I loved the Apple A1016 bluetooth keyboard. It's a shame Apple don't make this any more. In particular the key caps were made out of a slightly soft matte-finished material that felt very nice to type on.

Can anyone tell me what this material is?

I'm partly asking so that I might find a similar 3rd party keyboard - suggestions welcome. I did try a Ducky DK2108 Zero but it was noisy with hard plastic key caps and not really what I was after.

  • Alternatively the A1048 was the same model but with cable. There are quite a bit of both of these available on eBay, including 'new old stock' Also look for M9270LL/A (A1016) and M9034LL/A (A1048) these are the same models. – EDP Dec 5 '15 at 17:18
  • You could try to find a used A1016 keyboard on eBay. There's probably even some new-in-box. – RedEagle2000 Dec 6 '15 at 0:23
  • Thanks for your comments. I have seen the new old stock on Amazon etc. but couldn't help thinking it must be counterfeit (they stopped making them in 2007!?) I may consider them. I'd still like to know what the key caps are made from though since I may like to buy a third party keyboard. – user902666 Dec 6 '15 at 20:17
  • I still want to know! – user902666 Sep 6 '16 at 16:43
