Today, Logitech announced their Logitech MX Master 3 for the Mac, and the Logitech MX Keys for Mac both being which are a premium upgrade from their Master series— now completely optimized for MacBook, and Apple advanced users.
I had an opportunity to be on a zoom call with Logitech to check out the latest products. And even though the MX Master series was already fantastic, to begin with, there’s something to be said about the matching Space Grey.
Logitech states that being able to complement the apple ecosystem and help millions of advanced digital creators that work on their iPads and Macs might look a little bit better if they all matched. And that’s precisely what both of these products do. What’s so unique about the MX Master series is you can connect up to three devices on both. You can connect your MacBook, iPad Pro, and Phone to both the MX Master 3 and MX Key with a click of a button, and effortlessly toggle which device you want to type on.
The Logitech MX Master 3 for Mac Advanced Wireless Mouse is built to empower your Mac and iPad with Master Series signature features. Those features include next-generation MagSpeed scrolling that silently shifts from precise click-to-click to a hyper-fast mode, a comfortable handcrafted shape, and an optimized thumb area to access the large thumbwheel and buttons effortlessly. The Darkfield 4000dpi sensor allows you to track virtually any surface, even glass, and hit the right pixel every time while working on detailed PhotoShop designs. App-specific profiles optimize workflow for Adobe, Google Chrome, Safari, and countless other customization options. The MX Master 3 for Mac rechargeable battery lasts up to 70 days and can be charged while in use.
What I love about the MX Master 3 is that it is just comfortable in hand. Now I’ve had every MX Master mice since they first began developing, and with each iteration, they’ve all gotten better with time. But the MX Master 3 to me is even better than the previous two because it feels like it contours to my hand. On top of that, you can quickly scroll 1000 lines in a second courtesy of the thumbwheel.
The Logitech MX Keys for Mac Advanced Wireless Illuminated Keyboard provides users with the best low profile typing experience from Logitech in a true Mac layout. With keys shaped for your fingertips, the keyboard delivers a superior typing experience with a great tactile response. It features smart backlighting, so when your hands approach the keyboard, it adjusts to the ambient lighting conditions to provide bright and sharp characters whenever inspiration hits you.
MX Keys for Mac has Mac optimized firmware, is equipped with USB-C to USB-C charging, and allows you to move from your MacBook, iPad, or iPhone quickly. I’ve used the MX Keys DAILY since receiving it, and having a FULL keyboard when working from home, or even as I’m on vacation, complete with separate numeric keys has made it easier to get projects done.
Aside from the MX Series, Logitech released the K380 for Mac Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard. It’s great if you’re always on the go, or if you just want a keyboard that will integrate to all of your devices with ease. A highlight of the K380, aside from being able to connect to all of your Apple devices, has to be the dedicated Mac Keys. Having the keys on your F and A rows give a familiarity to the standard MacBook keyboard but in a smaller frame. The scooped keys are smooth and provide quiet typing as well. The caveat being this keyboard requires batteries; however, they have a two-year lifespan complete with auto-sleep functionality. While I wish there were also a Space Grey model, the K380 for Mac comes in a new Rose and Off-White color.
Both the Logitech MX Master 3 for Mac & Logitech MX Keys for Mac will cost $99.99 each, with the Logitech K380 Multi-Device keyboard is priced at $39.99, and you can purchase them all directly at Logitech.com.
