    Hi I can confirm mine works too on BIOS via bluetooth. I'm on Asus maximus Gene, el capitan and a
    Apple Broadcom BCM94360CD. Personally I don't like too much the "short" travel of the keys, but I see two major advantages over the old one:


    1. It's rechargeable
    2. you can always connect the thunderbolt cable and have a wired keyboard in case your bluetooth card fails or you mess badly with your settings.
    As per de Del key, I use the function shortcuts: F2, F5, F8 etc

    There is no "Delete" key on the Magic Keyboard which is why it doesn't work to get into the BIOS. I am trying to figure out how to do this as well - I currently still have my USB keyboard connected but it would be nice to find a solution to enter BIOS from the Magic Keyboard.

    I have the Fenvi card and have full bluetooth connectivity in BIOS/Post and Clover with my magic keyboard.

    you have to check on your motherboard manual on my Asus , hitting F2 does the same thing as delete and get me to the bios, you can try with your mobo using the F keys during post as you'll normally do with Del. It works just as well
