    Better than the first edition but why is the charging point on the bottom??

    Why oh why apple, when you do so much right do you do this so wrong. I am currently unable to use photoshop whilst I wait for my mouse to charge as the port is on the bottom making it currently useless. Why not put it at the back?

    The Magic Mouse 2 is just dandy. Haters, go get that Logitech then. Geez.

    Seriously people, I have no idea what these people are going on about in here.
    Especially those that had or still have and use the MM1. As The MM2 is LITERALLY the SAME mouse, minus the weight (the MM2 is Lighter, no batteries) Or The Charging port. As far as design or ergonomics are concerned, there is no difference. The touch interface is still exactly the same as well.

    For crying out loud people, Get A GRIP! Seriously. I would like all the haters going on and on about the location of the charging port to take a good look at this mouse and tell us all where on IT, yes this actual mouse, you think Apple should have put the port~ and let us all know. After looking at the mouse myself, I see no where else for it to logically go.

    It actually charges enough for a whole work day in a couple minutes, Apple knew full well that you would not be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time so it was made to charge fast enough that it would be a non issue.
    If you forgot to charge it, and it got low enough that it turned off you can charge it back up to nearly 100% during your lunch break,
    10 minutes will get you well over half charged, or even if you have something crazy important you are working on and can only spare the time it takes for you to get to bathroom and back? That will certainly be enough time to charge the mouse for the rest of the work day, and likely enough to get you all the way til Friday. at which time you can plug it in, and come back to a freshly charged mouse on Monday that you can use for 2 more months without remembering to charge it again until it dies.

    As for those posting negative reviews based solely on the location of the charging port? sell your MM2 and get a MM1. It's the same mouse, but uses batteries.
    Your welcome.

    Looks great but!

    What are Apple thinking with the new design where you can't charge the mouse and use it at the same time?!

    My original Magic Mouse has 2x regular batteries and is still running on the same set after some 2+ years!

    Can I get my money back? Of course not!

    Get it together, Apple.

    This mouse is terrible. It has to be reconnected every time you restart your Macbook. Once you lose connection, it doesn't pick back up unless you manually reconnect via settings. It also has random periods of lag, which I haven't seen since the time of the mechanical mouse.

    Love it

    Seems as if the ratings are either you love it or you don't. I personally love it and have had no issues with it like some claim to have. For every day use it's perfect, but it probably wouldn't be the best mouse for someone who has develops software or someone who's job depends on a computer. So, in other words, this mouse is great for day to day computer use.

    What a brilliant little thing

    Exemplar in design....exemplar in use. Another brilliant innovative invention by Apple, not much more to be said. Ok, charging port on the bottom is a bit odd but then who is using a device like this for 24 hrs flat out, and if you can't remember to charge it, try and figure out who's fault it is. Anyway, it doesn't need charging that often, even with heavy use gossiping on social media until the small hours. We have Apple-fied our life for the simple reasons this little magic device embodies... simplicity, usefulness and design.

    Next time wireless charging "Genius"

    Seriously, who was the genius that had the idea of placing the charging connector below... How can you use the mouse while charging? nobody thought about that? So difficult was to provide the magic mouse with wireless charging? obviously, innovation is a word that Apple has been forgotten its meaning.

    Extremely Disappointing

    I wasn't a fan of this mouse and have moved back to a standard cheap usb mouse instead.

    PROs:

    - Very slim and comfy
    - Reasonably responsive for a wireless.

    CONs:

    - Can't right click while the left finger is resting on the mouse. If like me you rest both fingers on the mouse it's by design unable to tell which actually clicked and presumes a left click. You have to keep fingers off the mouse by default which is uncomfortable. This is particularly frustrating for games.
    - No option to add custom gestures. On the track pad I have several custom gestures set up for my virtual desktops and there's no way to add these to MM2. There's also no way I've found to include MM2 into custom shortcuts.
    - Charging plug is on the bottom. You can't use and charge.

    I don't understand the purpose of a gesture mouse when you can only add limited gestures not custom ones. Surely this product is more useful for power users with custom productivity setting rather than forcing users into the default mac gestures.

    Magic Mouse 2

    I like how the mouse works, so far no issues once i updated to "El Capitan" . My macbook came with Yosemite i still was able to use the magic mouse but i could not use the scroll function. Once i updated it, it work perfectly. The only thing i dislike about this mouse is the charging function.

    Horrible Mouse

    This mouse is pretty much unusable. You have to constantly fight with it to get do anything. It just totally freaks out some apps like Amazon Kindle.

    Mine was included in a recent iMac purchase. I'm sure I paid way too much for a device that simply doesn't work at all like it should.

    I replaced it with a cheap Logitech mouse and am having no problems with my iMac now.

    If I could give this 0 stars I would.

    I'm so confused

    I absolutely can not believe this product. It shouldn't even bear the Apple sign. Is there anyone out there that can explain to me why they put the charging port on the bottom v the side? I couldn't even use it. I'm so disappointed in this product, especially considering the cost. I have no idea what's going on with Apple. However, it's blatantly obvious that something is really wrong. Either their design team went out to lunch and forgot to come back or they failed to have actual consumers test out this product. Or both

    Not worth buying

    I love my 13 inch Macbook Pro, and decided to invest in what I thought would be a great mouse. But the Magic Mouse is anything but efficient, it is uncomfortable, slow and rough. The reality is that the build in trackpad is so much better at everyday computing.

    So my advise, if you really want a mouse go for a 3rd party one like Logitech, they tend to be cheaper and way nicer to use.

    Big disappointment Apple ;(

    Replace ASAP

    This mouse will give you headaches because when it does work it's great but it rarely does. Bluetooth connection is horrible it drops constantly. The mouse isn't very comfortable as a daily driver. The port to charge is in the worst spot that guy should be demoted out of the design team.

    Tragic Mouse

    Continually drops Bluetooth connection. Just like the old 'Magic' mouse - which this one was purchased to replace in the hope of finally having an efficient mouse.
    This combined with the ridiculous recharging system leaves me with no choice but to return it. I'll go back to a USB wired mouse. I'm tired of wasting time with these wireless devices.
    Apple are trying to be to clever for their own good. Mind you it shouldn't be that difficult to engineer a mouse that is actually reliable - especially considering all the design talent at Apple but somehow they just mess up on this very simple piece of kit.

    Probably great if you're new to Apple products

    Reading others' reviews, the key theme seems to be that this is a great mouse if you're new to Apple products or have suffered through the (apparently even worse?) Magic Mouse 1.

    Magic Mouse 2 is capable of so much, but the developers have severely restricted the usability. Tap to click, a standard on MacBooks for years (since perhaps 2008), is not even an option in the system preferences for this. Instead, you must download 3rd party applications that are inelegant at best, but most often seem to render the MM2 nearly unusable by overriding so many of Apple's default settings, creating unpredictable conflicts.

    Honestly, it's a bit difficult to enumerate all of the issues that I've had with the MM2. I've been using mine for nearly 2 weeks and will be returning it. I'd recommend trying it out at an Apple Store or borrowing one from a friend if you're considering one. I think that a future Magic Mouse will be well worth the price. This one, though, feels like it was pushed to market too early.

    Lightning charge capability convenient

    I use this with my MacBook Pro instead of using the laptop's trackpad. Responsive and the gesture features are fantastic. Charges quickly without having to continuously swap out batteries.

    Excellent Refresh of an Apple Mouse

    After using this product for a few months the Apple mouse has served its use remarkably well.
    It still retains it's charge cycle and has that month long usage after a two hour charge.
    I use the mouse regularly each hour several hours a day and there's been no issue with it running out.

    For those at work who dock their phone or have a lighting cable there, one a month usually upon the battery warning appears, simply connect it on the way home and it'll be ready for the next day and month. Alternative is during the lunch break if it appears earlier in the day, a quick lunch break charge will leave it ready for about half a month so there is real concern for the battery every running out.
    Rechargeable upgrade is definitely a perk over storing a cabinet of time degrading batteries.

    Usability is excellent is the precision and speed for pointer specific uses is excellent. It glides over all desks, with wood being the least smooth but by no means rough.
    The trackpad like surface above with multitouch may seem excessive a technology for the gestures but what it allows is for one to rest the hand comfortably on the mouse without a palm arch on higher mouses without triggering off undated gestures. Multi-touch means the mouse will recognise deliberate movements over general hand movements that occur naturally during the movement and use of the mouse. A right click mode is available whereby the touch top recognises the mouse button was clicked solely on the right side triggering a right click command, it's seamless and intuitive as are the gestures which allow excellent workflow and control.

    It's a clean good looking mouse, which functions superbly and as stated. Having excellent battery life and ergonomics (though it may take some adapting for "avocado in your palm" mice users such as myself, but this is entirely like getting used to a different car)
    It's compact, pairs instantly upon lightning connection to your MacOS device and comes with a 95% charge so it's ready to go for a month.

    For those who clean their mice it has little other than a wipe down and a mildly damp cloth along the mouse edges to pick up dust means the mouse is easy to clean.

    Excellent technologies and engineering come together without flaunting individual strengths against one another to provide a mouse that for all it's strengths retains user end usability and quality for efficiency of work and durability.

    Would happily recommend to all those needing a mouse especially Macbook family users in need of extra fine pointer precision and heavy mouse work, an excellent pairing to the Macbook's trackpad.

    Seriously what was Jonathan Ive thinking?

    Dear Jonathan Ive, shame on you for this poor design decision. You are better than that.
    I feel that Apple contracted out this design to some 3rd party. (you did, didn't you).

    But do not be discouraged, I have the perfect solution to the dilemma. Sell Magic mouse 2 and 1 together in dbl pack.

    Love!

    I am not sure what the complaints are about on this mouse...works great with my new MacBook and was quick/easy to pair. I love how intuitive it is with the gestures etc - I wish I could sync with my non-Apple laptop and use it for work also! I love the sleek design. The fact that the charger connection is on the bottom of the device doesn't really bother me since it seems to hold its charge really well (and charges in just two hours) - I don't really see this as being an issue - and so awesome you don't need batteries! I was a little hesitant to pay the $79 cost for this, but I am so glad I did! Another satisfied Apple purchase.
