    Amazing mouse

    I bought it and it became brilliant for me. I am using it with me MacBook. And i must say that it is very comfortable, I am using it at home or in places with table. So I say that it is brilliant.

    Questionable design decision

    I never review products, but the position of the charging port on this mouse makes no sense. What is going to happen, is it's going to die and then I'm going to need to dig out my old mouse to use while I charge this one. Just moving the port and enabling the mouse to charge and be used at the same time would make this a great product. Honestly I would prefer the rechargeable batteries to this. The day to day use of this mouse is just fine, no complaints. This design decision however, concerns me. I feel like Apple is slipping. They used to go the next step with design, and now it seems they are falling just short on a number of things.

    Good BUT

    It's a great mouse design. I was a little appalled however Apple but the plug perpendicular and on the bottom making the mouse impossible to use while charging?! Why? Functions quite well otherwise. Magic Mouse 3 which hopefully follows soon should also have the fingerprint reader from the latest iPhones. It would be a great improvement for the Mac line of devices.

    Good Product For Me

    I had my doubts about switching over to this mouse due to some of the negative reviews. I'm totally sold on this mouse and find that some of the reviews have no truth to them. Just make sure you are running the right software and it is current. Go into your System Preferences and click on the Mouse Icon and set up the mouse according to your own likes and dislikes. Very easy and quick to do. The only thing I would like to see Apple do is to increase the tracking speed just a little more which is a software adjustment and not a product issue. If you have an Apple store near by, I would recommend that you go check out this product first and ask questions about it before purchase. Always remember that there's an adjustment period when you try something new no matter what the product is.

    superior to the original MMouse

    pairs better and connects much quicker, charges faster, charge lasts longer, glides better, and covers distance easier on a large Display. Must use OSX 10.11+

    Only downside is the "sharp" edge of the entire mouse but its always been that way, does effect comfort for me...

    The same, but better

    If your hand is already used to the shape and weight of the original Magic Mouse, this will be very, very similar. I haven't used mine long enough to confirm how often charging is needed (~ two weeks, according to another review) or how long it takes to get enough charge to finish some time-critical work (~ half an hour). While it seems crazy to put the Lightning port on the bottom of the mouse, it probably won't result in much lost time. The only reason I could see to be concerned over taking a half-hour break from work is is something is absolutely time critical.

    I wrote this review in part to balance out some of the one star reviews, which appear to be either thoughtless or trolling. To the person who said "no charging cable," there's a USB to Lightning cable right there in the bottom of the box in which the mouse comes (YMMV if you get the mouse with a new Mac? Don't know) --- oops, did you show the box say without looking? To the people who complained about not being able to scroll: Say what? Please look at the System Preferences Mouse pane. To the people who are shocked, shocked, to find that the mouse requires El Capitan for compatibility: yes, it would be nice if Apple applied the correct driver mod for at least Yosemite, but really? I can understand if you're still running 10.6.8 for some PowerPC emulation, but not upgrading from 10.10 to 10.11 so your mouse can work? Really?

    And for people who complain about the hand or finger positioning, yes, it is different from larger, contoured mice with smaller price tags, but I find those cause hand cramps after a few hours' use; YMMV. I've been using the old Magic Mouse since it came out in 2009. Both it and this rev 2 version have caused me the least hand cramping of any input device I've ever used, and my now 65-year-old right hand has been using one kind of mouse or another for 29 years. Could the nearly flat hand position required to use this device take some getting used to if you're accustomed to a different device? Absolutely. Will you regret it if you give it a couple of weeks' effort? I doubt it.

    Finally, a word to the doubters: Apple sometimes produces lemons, too, so a mouse that interferes with WiFi or one that wobbles is at least plausible, if not likely. Reserve judgment, for now.

    Amazing and very light

    This mouse is awesome. I am very impressed with how much battery life this mouse has. I can tell the difference between my old magic mouse and the new magic mouse 2.Though there is one thing I dont like about the mouse and it's that whenever I charge it, I can't tell if the mouse is fully charged or not. When I plug it into my Mac, I can see the battery life but I'm not always on my mac so if there was a light that flashed that says if it's fully charger or not on it, it would be more helpful. Otherwise the mouse is awesome!

    Great Mouse

    Why all the negative reviews for this mouse?

    Been a Mac user for years and had the Magic Mouse 1 for years. I recently switched to the new mouse and it's loads better. No more removable batteries, lasts twice as long on charge and quieter. It also tracks better on more surfaces than the old. I would recommend this mouse.

    The lightning port is placed at a horrible position. I want to be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time. That's really impossible with the magic mouse 2. And I also don't want to use batteries.

    Apple Magic Mouse 2 is Great!

    I bought the Apple Magic Mouse 2 a few weeks ago for my iMac. Previously just used a track pad, but decided I needed a mouse for more delicate photo editing chores. It is everything a great piece of equipment should be and it works very well. I was concerned about the negative reviews on the poor design of the charging system. The folks who wrote these reviews need to get a reality check about their abilities to evaluate good design. Simply put, there is no issue with the charging system that any normal person could find fault with. Yes, you can't use the mouse while charging it, but who cares. Are there really people out there who are using their mouse 24 hours per day? I have had the mouse in the on position for the better than two weeks that I've used it, and it is still at 90% charge. This is a great product that I would highly recommend.

    Stupid AND great

    This mouse is brilliant but designed by an idiot (or team of idiots). The feel of the mouse, the functionality, the build quality are all class-leading... but who in the world thought that sticking the charging port on the base of the mouse was a good idea?! And not allowing the mouse to be used whilst being charged? Seriously?! WHY? What a stupid thing to do Apple. What does someone do when they're working and their mouse runs out? Am I expected to buy two of these things??? Aargh.

    Here's a solution, Apple... what if the mouse could become a wired mouse whilst charging? Stick the port in the front-end of the mouse and have it work whilst charging so I don't have to use my laptops trackpad for intricate design work.

    An AMAZING Mouse!!

    I absolutely love the Magic Mouse 2!! Being new to Apple products and getting used to all the gestures, the Magic Mouse 2 is an excellent addition. I'm able to swipe between windows, navigate emails and do all other tasks with such ease and efficiency!! I love this Magic Mouse. Like anything else Apple, the design is so perfect, so clean and so elegant!! I would highly recommend the Magic Mouse 2 to anyone!!

    Poor connectivity

    The mouse still has the problems that the previous version had i.e randomly disconnecting and reconnecting which can be very inconvenient and frustrating. This happened on the first day I owned my new iMac. I am having to use my old USB mouse - this should not happen with a brand NEW computer :(

    Charging and Using this Mouse Proves to be Problematic

    An average user would assume that charging while in use would be capable with this mouse. Not only does the industrial design itself prevent this, the actual software within the mouse prevents itself from being useful while charging.

    The design is not useful, and the software has very painful UX realizations. I do not recommend.

    Can't Reach That Corner

    Often seems as though the AREA designated on the mouse for a left click is too small / close to corner of device. To select, my finger sometimes has to stretch from where my hand naturally lays (reaching out to the corner to select).

    Solid Mouse

    Magic Mouse 2 is a pretty good mouse with high quality. However the mouse performance could be better. It's still a great mouse and I use it everyday.

    great idea! not!!!

    Charge port on bottom. C'mon! Just fire the people who thought that would impress anyone. If charging was a ounce in a while kind of thing maybe, but this is all the time and irritating. The "B" team must have been in charge of this one.

    Great Mouse!

    I got this mouse for my birthday and it has been amazing!

    It worked straight from the box, I just opened it and connected the mouse for the first time and after that the mouse has worked perfectly from then. When reading the reviews I saw that biggest complaint was that the charging port was on the bottom of the mouse. I don't see why it is such a big deal when the mouse doesn't have to be charged that often, it doesn't take that long and you shouldn't be using it while it charges anyway.

    Overall, I believe this mouse is amazing and deserves the five stars. The complaints made seem very thin to me.

    Absolute waste of money

    Buying apple mac and then the mouse 2 - were the biggest mistakes of my life. Comparing a regular mouse to apple mouse - this is 10 times less smooth. The scroll isn't working already, and other users on the forum seem to have the same issue.

    I swear I wouldn't have as bad if I just lost $129 AUD from my pocket.
