Along with the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR, Apple has added a variety of related accessories to its online store.

The new Mac Pro accessories include Apple's Afterburner card, AMD's Radeon Pro Vega II MPX and Vega II Duo MPX graphics modules, Promise's custom Pegasus R4i and Pegasus J2i storage modules, Belkin's lock adapter for use with a third-party lock or cable, Belkin's AUX power cable kit, and up to 256GB DDR4 ECC memory kits.

For the Pro Display XDR, there is an optional $999 stand, a VESA mount adapter, and Logitech's 4K Pro Magnetic Webcam for $199.95.

Designed specifically for the Pro Display XDR, the Pro Magnetic Webcam features 4K Ultra HD resolution video with advanced HDR. "RightLight 3" technology automatically adjusts the video based on both poor lighting and direct sunlight. A secure magnetic mount attaches the webcam to the display.

Many of the accessories ship within the next week, but some are not yet available.

Silver-and-Black Magic Accessories Limited to New Mac Pro

The new Mac Pro comes with a new silver-and-black Magic Keyboard with a numeric keypad and a black Magic Mouse, with an optional silver-and-black Magic Trackpad available as well. These accessories are currently limited to the new Mac Pro and have not been made available to purchase separately.

This is similar to when Space Gray versions of the Magic accessories were limited to the iMac Pro when that computer launched in December 2017, but they became available to purchase separately in March 2018.

Any idea if that webcam has a microphone? Also, how do I get an NVMe SSD into the mac pro? Nothing available yet from a third-party?

I would have LOVED a 'one more thing' surprise today which would be a 4K iSight Pro camera that was compatible with the XDR display but also could be mounted to any sort of tripod head standard screw in plug like my Manfrotto mini tripod. I'd buy it w/o thinking and put it beside my iMac.

They will probably be selling the keyboard and accessories at some point next year by themselves like they did with the iMac Pro.

I want that colour keyboard (silver with black keys). Maybe they'll eventually sell it separately?
Space Gray keyboard, trackpad, and mouse were originally iMac Pro exclusives. I am sure they will trickle down for purchase eventually. Perhaps they will replace silver and space gray versions altogether?

I think it's silly that they still use Lightning connector for charging though. Apple should move them to USB-C.

It didn't?

There a lots of Thunderbolt 2 devices available..

What I meant was... Apple thought all the expansion should be on the outside of the computer with the trashcan Mac Pro.

That plan obviously didn't work out too well since they switched back to internal expansion on the followup.

As for Thunderbolt 2... yes there were devices... but wasn't it pretty much an Apple-only thing?

We have Dell and HP machines with Thunderbolt 3 ports today... but I don't remember any with Thunderbolt 2

I dunno. In my mind Thunderbolt and its devices really came into the spotlight with version 3... that's what I meant by "take off"

Anyway... no one should spend this much time discussing TB2... :)

So what I'm seeing is you can't just slot any PCI-E GPU into this machine? Your only upgrade path is through Apple? What a disappointment.

Nope! You can use third party.

"You can use Radeon MPX Modules along with other third-party PCIe graphics cards. If you use Boot Camp, using a Radeon MPX Module and a third-party AMD graphics card isn't supported when your Mac is using Windows. Learn about using AMD graphics cards with Microsoft Windows on Mac Pro (2019)."

Hold up. They didn't build a CAMERA into the display??????????

EDIT: It has been pointed out that the pro market does not want a camera - security and privacy issues trump the convenience of it being built into the monitor. I would want it, but I would still cover it 99% of the time.
