How to Change Batteries in iMac Keyboards

The iMac, a computer made by Apple, combines a flat-panel, backlit LED screen with an optical drive, processor, hard drive, speakers and camera into a single unit. The iMac comes with a wireless keyboard that is powered by two AA batteries and pairs with the iMac using Bluetooth. When the keyboard runs low on power, you will see a message on the iMac screen indicating that you need to replace the batteries. You can easily replace them with new AA alkaline, lithium or rechargeable AA batteries.
