The Magic Keyboard, recently updated in its version with Touch ID, has accompanied the Mac for years and is now a key part of the iPad as well. We’ll show you how to check the Magic Keyboard’s battery level in macOS, a simple and useful process to find out the charge status.

Check the charge status on the Magic Keyboard

The Magic Keyboard is a keyboard powered by a built-in battery. How could it be otherwise, macOS is able to tell us how much charge is left on the keyboard, a feature you need to be aware of so you don’t run out of power at the worst possible time.

1. We click on the Apple symbol () in the top bar of macOS, in the upper left corner.

2. We go to the ‘System Preferences’ section.

3. Click on ‘Keyboard’.

4. In this tab, you will see the battery level in the lower left corner.

This is not the only way to check how much battery is left on our Magic Keyboard, as we can also do this from the Control Center.

Just click on the bluetooth menu to check the remaining power in our device. While macOS doesn’t display the battery of all Bluetooth devices, it will with Apple devices like AirPods or Magic Keyboard.
