Best Space Gray Accessories for Your iMac Pro iMore 2020
Your iMac Pro is a powerful workhorse that's ready to tackle everything you can throw at it, and you want to find some great accessories for it. Maybe the Magic Mouse isn't your thing, or you want a keyboard with a little something extra. But you also want your accessories to match your iMac's space gray finish. That's where this list comes in. Here you'll find a set of accessories, from keyboards to cables, that keep with your iMac Pro's attractive aesthetic.
- Highly-customizable mouse: SteelSeries Rival 300
- Wireless keyboard: Satechi Aluminum Bluetooth Keyboard with Numeric Keypad
- Durable Lightning cable: Anker Powerline+ USB-to-Lightning Cable
- Fast-charging USB-C cable: RAMPOW USB-A-to-USB-C Cable
- Raise your iMac Pro: Twelve South HiRise Pro Adjustable Stand
- Super fast external storage: G-Technology G-Drive 1TB
Not exactly "space gray," but the gunmetal gray color of the SteelSeries Rival 300 will be a nice compliment to your iMac Pro. A wired mouse, the Rival 300 offers comfort, precision, and customization options to meet your needs. The Rival 300 features six programmable hardware buttons, which you can set up how you choose with SteelSeries' Engine software. You can also use this software to change the colors and patterns of the cool illumination featured on the mouse.
You can choose to upgrade your existing iMac Pro keyboard to a wireless option with full numeric keypad, useful Bluetooth connection, and responsive scissor-switch keys. This keyboard can connect via Bluetooth to three devices at a time, so you can use the assigned keys to switch between your laptop and tablet. As you'd expect from a product designed especially for iMac computers, the keyboard includes intuitive MacOS function hotkeys.
If you ever need to connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac, Anker's MFi-certified Nylon Lightning cable is a great choice, with a nice space gray color option to match your iMac Pro and space gray iPhone. The double-braided nylon offers some additional durability to the cable, especially useful if you use your Lightning cables frequently. The nylon finish also aids in preventing tangling. It offers a generous 10 foot of length, giving you a decent amount of line to play with.
For when you need to plug in USB-C accessories like hard drives into your iMac Pro, RAMPOW's USB-A-to-USB-C cable is something to consider. Like Anker's Lightning cable, RAMPOW's offering utilizes space gray braided nylon for additional durability. The cable also supports USB-C fast charging if you have a device that can use that which offers impressively fast data transfer rate of up to 5Gbps. It's also incredibly durable, offering a 20,000+ bends lifespan.
The HiRise Pro elevates your iMac Pro to deliver a better viewing height while keeping it securely in place. Opening the HiRise will reveal storage space that will allow you to stash accessories such as hard drives and docks while keeping them from cluttering your desk. The HiRise Pro features a reversible magnetic front grille that offers either space gray front or a veneer of walnut. On the top of the HiRise Pro is also a black leather space on which you can place something like your iPhone or keys.
We thought that the G-Drive by G-Technology was one of the best USB-C hard drives for Mac, and it's a great option if you want some external storage to match your new iMac Pro, but also need something to use when you're out and about, thanks to its diminutive length of less than four inches. In addition to portability, this drive is fast at 7200RPM, making it great for large files. Data transfer rates are also zippy, with a maximum rate of 136MB/s over a USB 3.1 connection.
The must-have items
Your iMac Pro is a powerhouse of a desktop. Whether you're using it for work or play, great accessories are going to enhance your experience and let you get more done. However, there are a few items on this list that deserve extra credit for being so useful.
The SteelSeries Rival 300 is just a solid mouse, and for anyone who dislikes the Magic Mouse, you'll be hard-pressed to find one as customizable, comfortable, and eye-catching as the SteelSeries Rival 300. It's a perfect companion to anyone trying to get a lot done.
I can't tell you how many times I have been frustrated by the poor-quality Lightning cables Apple provides with its products. Over time, they always seem to fray or stop working one way or another. Getting a durable cable like the Anker Powerline+ USB-to-Lightning cable is essential for any Apple user.
Lastly, as a writer myself, I can't stress enough how important a good keyboard is to anyone who finds themselves typing a lot of the day. A full-size QWERTY keyboard with a full numeric pad like the Satechi Aluminum Bluetooth Keyboard with Numeric Keypad is going to make typing away on your iMac Pro as much easier and much more comfortable.
