The new Magic accessories are out—or "meh-gic" if you're not blown away. They're nice and all, but you can get better keyboards and mice for the same money, and the trackpad's addition of Force Touch just isn't crucial enough, until there's more in OS X that makes Force Touch worthwhile. Check out our reviews for more.

Elsewhere, it's an Apple-scented potpourri of topics, from iWork updates to removing yourself from the beta cycle, to patent lawsuits, to accessibility features everyone could benefit from. Tim Cook also gave us our next date to look forward to: October 26 is the start of Apple TV preorders.
