What’s the best way to switch between laptops while using the same Magic Keyboard/Mouse?
My wife and I both have laptops and switch between using the monitor setup in the office. I recently bought a Magic Keyboard and after using it for a couple days I remembered why I go away from Apples peripherals.
Anytime we want to use the keyboard and mouse at the monitor we have to forget the device and reconnect it. Is there a better way?
You could connect via cable rather than Bluetooth, and you can just switch the wire to the laptop you want to use.
You could also look into the ToothFairy app which I use to switch AirPods between devices, so it might work with the Magic Keyboard, and is much cheaper (~$5) than buying a keyboard that allows multiple connections (e.g., I use a Keychron that you can easily switch between 3 devices).
I use a hub and accidentally discovered this benefit of using the cable. Rather than having to switch the cable between laptops (or laptop and ipad in my case), I just plug the machine I’m using into the hub and the keyboard works with it just fine.
