    Generally confused by this level of stupidity.

    Gives you no warning that the mouse is going to die, and when it does die, you can't use it while it's charging because the charge port is on the bottom. tf?

    Not happy with MM2.... A mouse for 10 $ would be better

    I'd give this a 0/5 if I could. I've used this mouse for about two months now. I was previously using a Logitech G502 on Windows, and just using the trackpad on my MacBook. I wanted a mouse for when the MacBook is docked. The movement scheme for this mouse is dreadful. There is absolutely no precision. This product is an example of choosing ascetics over function. I actually thought that maybe the macOS movement scheme for mice was just wrecked, then I popped my Logitech G502 and everything was fine with that mouse. The magic mouse is horribly unergonomic. It's incredibly uncomfortable to use. It has horrible weighting. It does not glide across a mouse pad or a clean surface easily. And worst of all, you can't charge it while using it because the genius who designed it put the charging port on the bottom. Having said that their are a few redeeming qualities, unfortunately they don't make this mouse worth a purchase. The touch features are really nice for switching desktops and the multi touch features for activating Mission Control. The natural scrolling is nice as well. If Apple could design a mouse like Logitech's chassis, ergonomics, buttons, and precision, and their own ascetics and touch features it would be a godsend. I wish I could return this piece of garbage. Oh well. Without a shadow of a doubt, the absolute worst Apple product I've ever purchased.

    Good mouse in theory

    The shape of the mouse fits your natural hand position and the scroll is very nice. But it disconnects CONSTANTLY which makes it near unusable.

    Ignore the low ratings. This mouse is awesome!

    My husband owned a trackpad and I got the Magic Mouse. My husband used my mouse for a day and fell in love with it, now we are being a second one to replace the trackpad! The only criticism of the mouse is the charging is kind of awkward, but the battery life is decent so it's not a big deal at all. This is hands down the best mouse both my husband and I have every used.

    Frustrating Unreliable and Apple Should be Refunding

    This mouse has been nothing but trouble. I have the version before the rechargeable battery. Quits randomly and regularly. Interrupts work flow and frustrates beyond belief. A slight bump and it looses bluetooth connection or sometimes just randomly looses connection even when untouched. Have tried everything offered as solutions.
    This product should have been recalled and money refunded.
    Yes, I am ticked off about it. For this kind of mooney it should at least work!

    Design..

    The Magic Mouse 2 is great, but the design is simply lacking. The charging port should be at the top of the mouse, so you can use it as a wired mouse while it charges. Thank You.

    Great response and feels natural

    I have used the mouse for awhile and the mouse has a great natural feel in your palm. The mouse also has fast responsiveness. What is very convenience is the ability to scroll by swiping your fingers.

    Poorly Designed for Charging

    Apple really missed the mark when designing a mouse (and keyboard) that had to be connected to the computer via cable to recharge. If the mouse could be plugged in and used like a wired mouse while charging, it would be reasonable. But the charging port on the Magic Mouse 2 is underneath the mouse, so the mouse can't be used while charging.

    This is less of an issue at home, where I can charge the mouse overnight. But I don't have that luxury in my office, since I take the computer home with me at night. There's nothing to connect the mouse to overnight at the office. My only solution may be to have an extra mouse that I can switch to when my mouse at the office needs to be charged.

    At the very least, Apple should offer a separate charger that the mouse can be plugged into. That way I'd be able to charge my mouse overnight, regardless of where my computer is.

    Outstanding Product

    I bought the magic mouse2 five or six months ago and couldn't be happier - i've literally had NO problems. I work with spreadsheets a lot and this is a dream in that regard.

    I noticed there were a few complaints about having to charge it by plugging in the cord to the bottom of the mouse - while you do have to charge it that way - it's never been an issue for me and the battery life is GREAT (I use it daily for long periods). I think i've charged it 3 times in like 5 months. Plus, the computer tells you when the battery is getting low, so you can just charge it overnight when you get the notice - no big deal.

    Anyway, the hate has gone way too far - I think it's a great product. I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Shake My Head - I've used bars of soap with better ergonomics!

    Totally would like to speak to the design team to understand the thought process behind this mouse? I just bought my first iMAC ever and I'm very confused and left completely dumfounded by this stupid "mouse." It actually is making my blood pressure go up just looking at this dumb thing. Who was paid to make this thing? This is almost like the knock-off brand Dollar Store toys. It looks like mouse...it clicks like a mouse... After using this thing for more than 2 minutes, I actually had to question myself if I had it upside-down, backwards, or maybe I needed to prime it! I've used bars of soap that were better designed for the HUMAN HAND. Did a robot test this thing or what? I will not continue to risk my health by using this thing any longer!

    Get it together Apple Mouse 2 design team! Geez!

    Fundamental Flaw

    Firstly this mouse is very good but needs to be charged from the bottom as mentioned which is a nuisance when charge runs out but as I still have my MM1 it's not the end of the world in theory.

    The biggest problem and huge bug bear is that fact the product comes with a USB-A to Lightning Cable despite the fact that the new Macbook Pro's all come with Thunderbolt / USB-A Ports across the line, this means you have to carry your iPhone charger with you just to charge the mouse if your out or fork out another £30 for a USB-C to Lightning Cable on top of the £80 tou spend on the mouse itself.


    Those two issues combined mean that this is actually a backwards step from the MM1 and hence I have returned the MM2 and will go back to my old mouse even if it isn't quite as smooth as it's easier to chuck my spare pair of rechargeable AA's into and keep them in my bag.

    Great product but no Lightning to USB-C cable

    One word: self-entitlement. Anyone who leaves a one-star review on the Magic Mouse 2 is not being honest with themselves or others.

    The main criticism is that the charging connector is at the bottom of the mouse. Which means, while the mouse is charging, you can't use it. I understand. But people! A 2 minute charge gives you 9 hours of use! A 2-3 hour charge gives you 30 days of use! That's amazing. And even if you're a heavy mouse user, rarely leaving it to idle, charging for 2 minutes will still get you at least a half day of use.

    It's just not a big deal. And I would much prefer the charge port at the bottom rather than compromise the amazing design and feel when using it, which would turn the mouse into butt-ugliness, with all kinds of usability issues by trying to place a charging port in front or on the side.

    Probably better to leave product design to those that know what they're doing.

    Now, what I would have liked to see is a Lightning to USB-C cable included instead of a Lightning to regular USB. That seems kind of stingy.

    Also here for the charging port. MM2 needs more magic spells.

    I was going to buy this mouse for my MacBook Pro since its trackpad isn't enough for how much I navigate on several programs/apps at once. I must say when I saw this in the store, I was very tempted to buy this along with the MacBook due to it's sleek style. I'm not a gamer so I love its minimalistic look. I'm also not one who goes in-depth on mouse functions (precision, speed, smoothness, finger/hand comfort, etc.). That being said, I did enjoy trying out the product but needed more details before purchasing.

    The charging situation is definitely concerning. It's not so much that I can't wait for an hour or two every two months to recharge. I'm sure everyone in here who's complaining have something else to do for an hour or two every two months while recharging the mouse. What concerns me is that like some have mentioned here, is that there is no light that indicates if the mouse needs to be recharged (correct me if I'm wrong). Therefore it could become suddenly useless during workflow. As someone who often works out of office and does a lot of web conference, I'd hate to suddenly get interrupted by this and lose momentum (especially if you're the one presenting to the group). Having to recharge the mouse every night before to avoid this sort of situation could become an inconvenience. I could do this for my phone but not for a device that's supposed to make my computer-use more seamless.

    Sitting this one out. Hoping the newer version's charging port isn't in the way so that it can be plugged and remain usable during such situations.

    Poor Usability - Disappointed

    Bought an iMac when my beloved 2011 17" MBP finally gave up the ghost (yes, it was an early-2011 model with the faulty logic board; had it replaced twice but the programme ran out). Was hoping to get a decent mouse along with some semblance of a track pad. Magic Mouse 2 is a decent mouse to point and click, but already the implementation of the right mouse button is dodgy at best. Worse, the lack of ergonomic features makes the thing hard to point at times. Worst of all, though, is the lack of any middle mouse button, and the implementation of the scroll wheel. Since the entire surface is sensitive to swiping/tapping, the mouse frequently mistakes simple finger movements for swiping or tapping movements, resulting in unwanted scrolling and zooming. It may work if you are using the mouse with 1 finger only, but as soon as you permanently have 2 fingers on the mouse (e.g., when using left and right mouse button functionality), chaos ensues. Popped my Logitech G9 (ancient, but trusty and working) back in and am happier, but minus the track pad functionality.
    My advice: if you need a trackpad, get one instead of the mouse, and for things you need a mouse for (and I mean not only gaming), use a real mouse.

    Total rip-off!

    First of all, I spent £80 on this mouse as I thought this has got to be the best option for my Mac which I use all day! It is absolutely horrific to use, in apps like Roblox Studio (similar to Google sketchup) where Macs are often used it is horrible, the camera moves away randomly, the top part wiggles and is slowly driving me insane! Oh and did I mention the charging port!? It's on the bottom so you have to prop it up while charging which is a real nuisance! I spent £80 on this mouse and as far as I can tell a poundland mouse is nicer to use! I feel scammed by this ridiculous attempt at creating a mouse! Apple needed Steve Jobs, so if you excuse me, I'm gonna get a bag of popcorn and watch Apple drop!

    Useless while charging

    Make sure you forget don't forget to charge your mouse.
    When you do, you have no other option than to hope your boss thinks is ok that you wait and do nothing for as long as the mouse charges.
    Not only is the lightening port under the mouse, but it also shuts off completely while charging.
    Other that hat it more or less looks like the previous version.
    I miss my old one.
    Not that changing batteries part, but at least you could do just that.
    Get new batteries and get back to work.
    Now, off to get coffee...

    Not a hater (really) but I agree with them on this one...

    Perfect, except for one huge flaw: the charging on the bottom. Makes it worthless while charging. And yes, I realize that it is not a life-or-death issue, and yes, it doesn't kill me to step away from the computer every now and then. But my iMac is a family computer, and it seems like whenever I need it, the kids have run down the mouse without charging it. I don't see why they couldn't put it in the front (or the side) like a old wired mouse.... That said, it is otherwise flawless. Love not needing to change batteries.

    Looking forward to Magic Mouse 3!

    Great Function Terrible Design

    I'm going to keep this review short and to the point:

    The Good:
    • Saves a USB port
    • You'll never need to buy batteries for it
    • Tracking is smooth and accurate
    • Easy Connectivity
    • Looks really nice sitting on a desk

    The Bad:
    • Very uncomfortable to use for a long period if you have bigger hands
    • The edges are less than smooth
    • Tracking speed is turned all the way up but I still want it to be faster
    • You cannot charge and use the mouse at the same time
    • Feels cheap compared to my old $30 Logitech M510

    Conclusion:
    If you want a great looking sleek mouse to sit on your desk and look pretty, this is the mouse for you. If you have small hands and you don't use a mouse for any long period of time, this is the mouse for you.

    On the other hand, if you're looking for a mouse to actually use, and use a mouse often for a long period of time, this is not the mouse for you.

    Other Comments:
    After using this mouse for 2 hours my hand felt so cramped I wanted to chop it off. Good thing the edges of the mouse are sharp enough I didn't need to look for a knife.

    Connection trouble

    I can barely get a sentence written before my connection is lost! I truly believe that there is a need to recall these mice.
