Background and Identification ¶
In May 2003, the keyboard underwent a major redesign which eliminated the frame enclosing the keys while adding an F16 key and moving the USB ports to the back. This revision also renamed the device as the 'Apple Keyboard,' thus dropping 'Pro' from the name. The A1048 was available only in white until it was again redesigned in 2007.
