The Best Wired Keyboard in the Classic Style You Love

The original Apple wired keyboard was a fan favorite for years, but Apple is switching completely to wireless—even if plenty of people aren’t ready to make that same leap. If you still prefer a wired keyboard, you’re going to love the Matias Wired Aluminum Keyboard, modeled after Apple’s iconic aluminum keyboards. The look and feel is exactly the same; Matias included all the functions you’re used to plus a couple extra features that make Matias’ tribute, arguably, better than the original.

Matias’ Wired Aluminum Keyboard perfectly mimics the smooth precision of the classic Apple keyboard. But it also provides the same built-in hub you know and love, with two USB ports for connecting your mouse, flash drives, or other devices. The keyboard makes full use of Mac-friendly function keys, so your usual keyboard shortcut productivity flow will remain unaltered. And of course, the Matias Wired Aluminum Keyboard also has the full Numeric Pad.

Matias couldn’t help but add their special touch—the company added a volume control dial on the top edge of the keyboard for precise adjustment (although the keyboard includes the tradition volume keys as well).

One of the fantastic features of this keyboard that’s easy to overlook is its seamless compatibility. If you’re using legacy software on older systems, this is a must-have keyboard. The Matias Wired Aluminum Keyboard is compatible with Mac OS Mojave all the way back to version 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard).

Apple may have discontinued its wired aluminum keyboard, but Matias has beautifully picked up where it left off. If you prefer never having to charge your keyboard, or if you simply like the classic look and feel of Apple’s original keyboard, this is the must-have wired aluminum keyboard. Gets yours today.
