We would like to add some information regarding the features of the new TD-Series. It is a Mac compatible mechanical keyboard.
As detailed below you can see all the features supported by the keyboard when used with OS X.
Under MAC OS X system:
F1 : Decrease screen brightness
F2 : Increase screen brightness
F3 : Mission Control
F4 : Launchpad key
( You have to activate it manually: go to “setting” —>”keyboard” —>”Hotkeys” —>”Launchpad and Dock” —>”tick off show Launchpad section” )
F5 : Decrease Keyboard brightness
F6 : Increase Keyboard brightness
F7 : Backward
F8 : Play / Pause
F9 : Forward
F10 : Mute
F11 : Volume Down
F12 : Volume Up
Fn + Scrlk : Switch LED mode
Fn + Pause : Switch to Mac OS mode ( from WINDOWS mode )
Ctrl : control
WINS : command
Alt : option
( Keys can be adjust by your preference )
Under Mac OS mode : Keyboard brightness adjustment is different from WINDOWS mode ( Fn + Up & Down Arrow key ) For Mac OS, it is originally built-in as F5 / F6 to adjust brightness. However, ( Fn + Left & Right Arrow key ) to increase or decrease speed remains the same.
Hey, I'm having trouble getting the keyboard to switch to mac os mode. Is there something inside the OS that I need to change in order for Fn + Pause to work? Right now it's not functioning correctly.
Did you ever get this working? I'm having the same problem. Thanks!
I know I am many years late, but I just solved this issue by updating the firmware on my TD108. It shipped with 1.19 and 1.24 is available as of Jan 2021. Had to download the firmware from IKBC and then use a Windows machine to update the keyboard, but then macos mode works after that. Leaving this here since it was one of the first Google searches that came up when I was trying to solve this :-)
How do you update the firmware? I am having the same problem but can't figure out how to actually update the downloaded firmware...
I downloaded the file from https://www.ikbckeyboard.com/downloads to a Windows machine (yes has to be a Windows machine, unfortunately)
It was a .rar that iKBC hosted on Google, and I unpacked it.
The updater tool is "AP_27BUS_1.24_mac.ex"
They named it .ex because .exe files get flagged on Google, I believe, so you'll have to rename it as a .exe
Then with the keyboard plugged into the Windows machine, just run the .exe and it takes a couple minutes
After the update is done, can just unplug from Windows machine and back into Mac and the macOS mode will work with Fn+Pause
