Apple UK is to end its Apple Store exclusives on the Key Lime iBook and professional optical mouse.

The products will be made available to all Apple sales channels. Manesh Patel, Mygate's managing director, said: "Though I'm still waiting for official confirmation, I am told the products will be available to order soon."

Apple UK spokesman David Millar confirmed the news, he said: "Key Lime iBooks and the Apple Pro Mouse are now available through all channels."

Apple has released these products to its US sales channels already. The company has also ended the Apple Store exclusive status of its 500MHz G4 Cube in the US, but Apple was unable to clarify if this was to be the case in the UK.

The move is an attempt to reduce the inventory of products held by the company, according to analysts.
