Apple leaks an updated Wireless Keyboard with three new buttons

If you’re about to buy one of Apple’s wireless keyboard you may want to hold off. It looks like the company could have an updated version coming in the very near feature with a backlit keyboard and a built-in power button.

The new keyboard recently surfaced on Apple’s Czech online store, where it was spotted by local gadget blog LetemSvetemApplem. It adds backlight controls to the stand-alone keyboard right where you’ll find them on your MacBook. It also swaps out that rarely-used CD eject button for a physical power button.

It’s a nice little update, though it looks like Apple might raise the price a bit for the new version. The Czech store listing puts the keyboard at Kč2,090 (roughly $83), compared to the $69 you’ll pay for the current model. Then again, it’s possible that price won’t translate directly in the U.S.

We’re not expecting a big announcement for the new wireless keyboard, and it probably won’t be long before it gets an official rollout. We’ll let you know when that happens, but for now we’d recommend holding off if you were about to buy a new keyboard from Apple.
