Magic Trackpad 2

Apple Accessories.

Redesigned. Rechargeable. Remarkable.

  • Overview

    Redesigned and rechargeable, Magic Trackpad 2 includes a built-in battery and brings Force Touch to the desktop for the first time. Four force sensors underneath the trackpad surface allow you to click anywhere, and detect subtle differences in the amount of pressure you apply, bringing increased functionality to your fingertips and enabling a deeper connection to your content. Magic Trackpad 2 also features an edge-to-edge glass surface area that is nearly 30 percent larger than the previous trackpad. This design, along with a lower profile, makes scrolling and swiping through your favorite content more productive and comfortable than ever.

    Magic Trackpad 2 pairs automatically with your Mac, so you can get to work right away. And the battery will power your Magic Trackpad 2 for about a month or more before needing a recharge.

      Does everything great except click and drag!

      As long as you never use click and drag this device is pretty cool. Unfortunately, I do quite a bit -- and each time I press to 'click and drag'; the file As long as you never use click and drag this device is pretty cool. Unfortunately, I do quite a bit -- and each time I press to 'click and drag'; the file opens, or previews, or gives me a definition, etc. Click too light, nothing happens. Click too hard, it does everything but pick up what I'm selecting to drag. I have to keep my magic mouse next to my new trackpad just for clicking and dragging. Great concept -- not executed to the "it just works" Apple standard.

      Bummed... really wanted it to work

      Paired with a late model 2013 MBP. The sensitivity of did not match the trackpad on the laptop so when I sped up the scroll, it was ok on this trackpad but the Paired with a late model 2013 MBP. The sensitivity of did not match the trackpad on the laptop so when I sped up the scroll, it was ok on this trackpad but the trackpad on my laptop was blazing fast. Multifinger gestures didn't work (no scrolling, no three / four finger swipe) and the click wasn't nearly as responsive. I'd like to have it work, but after fiddling with it for an hour, I'm returning and reverting back to my normal 2-AA battery trackpad.

      Incredibly frustrating to use

      I have used dozens of pointing devices in the last 30 years and have never had as many problems as with this one. Random clicks happen all the time and half the I have used dozens of pointing devices in the last 30 years and have never had as many problems as with this one. Random clicks happen all the time and half the time instead of a regular click or worse a double click it registers a right click. Scrolling with 2 fingers sometimes causes it to think I am using 3 fingers which it then takes several seconds to recover from. And as for force clicking, previewing is almost never what I want to do. After about 5 minutes of it popping up unexpectedly I disabled it (I find force touch a little frustrating on my iPhone 6s+ too but I got used to it). I hate to sound so negative but the whole reason I use Apple products is for the ease of use factor and this trackpad significantly interferes with my ability to get things done.

      Lag issues

      This trackpad is wonderful in principle and overall a great concept, but there are latency issues where the response time is (at random) a second longer than ac This trackpad is wonderful in principle and overall a great concept, but there are latency issues where the response time is (at random) a second longer than actual clicks / moves of the cursor. Not sure if this is a hardware issue, or a software issue can correct in the future, but it still results in a frustrating experience. This is especially disappointing given the high price tag, as I was really excited to use this w/ new my MacBook Pro.

      Good and No Bad With Firm Click

      Crisp clicks and excellent surface area. My fingers do not stick to the surface and glide easily over it. All and all, this is an improvement over the perviou Crisp clicks and excellent surface area. My fingers do not stick to the surface and glide easily over it. All and all, this is an improvement over the pervious Trackpad. Also, I'm getting excellent battery life. It's nice not to have to run to the battery cabinet every few days and there's no battery rattle. As far as the force touch drag issue, I am finding that if I set the click to firm in Preferences/Trackpad, then I am able to drag files without force touching. Since I just did this as I was writing this review, the jury is still somewhat out on this issue.

      Forces Upgrade and Usless Pressure Sensitive clicks

      This is so clumsy. It has the stupid double pressure sensitivity that the iphone 6s has now. No one uses this. It makes clicking on anything mess up half the ti This is so clumsy. It has the stupid double pressure sensitivity that the iphone 6s has now. No one uses this. It makes clicking on anything mess up half the time. Also if you happen to be running Yosemite you cannot use this trackpad well. It will force you to upgrade to El Capitan and we had to do this throughout the office due to one stupid little hardware that didn't need an upgrade from the Trackpad 1. Very disappointed.
