    Magic Trackpad

    • Written by diana M from plymouth

    Just bought the trackpad, hook up was easy and effortless. Easy to use, could not even fathom going to a regular mouse.

    Very happy with my new (second hand) Trackpad 2

    • Written by Ole H from Levington

    When my old Trackpad started behaving erratically, I wasn’t sure how to replace it. The Trackpad 2 had very mixed reviews, and a lot of old Trackpad users seemed to hate it for various reasons. So I looked for a straight replacement on eBay, but then found a very nice looking Trackpad 2 at an incredible price and decided to try it. After all, if I didn’t get on with it, I could easily sell it again without loss. I have a feeling that the previous owner must have been one of those who hated the new model, since he sold it so cheaply.

    But I just love it. Within seconds of plugging in a Lightning cable, it was installed and worked with exactly the same setup as my old Trackpad. An hour later, the battery was at 100%, and I unplugged the cable. Bluetooth kicked in immediately with none of the usual pairing fuss.

    I’d say that even the feel of it is the same as my old pad, and I’m very fussy about tactile feedback. I had assigned left and right clicks to the left and right corners, and that’s how the new pad works too, with the “haptic engine” emulating the clicks very well.

    Mind you, like with my old pad, I have all touch-to-clicks switched off. They never worked for me, and erratic clicks drove me mad. But hey, no problem, just deselect them in the setup.

    Some reviews make much of new Trackpad having a larger work surface due to losing the battery compartment. The new pad is a about an inch wider, but the same height as the old one, so it’s got nothing to do with the battery compartment.

    Great Product

    • Written by Logan S from Gilbert

    I love this Trackpad, it looks very nice and works great. The only problems that I've ever encountered with it are switching back and forth between Bootcamp and macOS, it used to work seamlessly but now I have to completely disconnect the Trackpad from Bluetooth on MacOS before shutting my Mac down to switch into Bootcamp (I have to do the same with my Magic Keyboard for what it's worth.) With a bit of searching for the right drivers it works wonderfully once connected to Bootcamp however. It's annoying that when I bought mine the Space Grey version was still an iMac Pro exclusive and wasn't being sold separately, but it may have been for the better since my white one matches my desk very nicely. I never liked traditional mice and think that this is the best Bluetooth mouse alternative for any Mac hands down.

    Best choice for an accessory I’ve ever made.

    • Written by Marisa H from Citrus Heights

    Love my trackpad. Had difficulty grabbing and moving photos on my desk top, looked it up and found in the preference settings I had checked “force click & haptic feedback” still don’t know what that is but this generous size trackpad does so much more than I ever knew possible and I’m thrilled. I do a lot of screen shots and the wide pad is a major help vs a small pad on a laptop. So easy to work in photo editing, super fine mouse abilities....its like having a cell phone vs a phone in a phone booth....no comparison.

    Highly Recommended

    • Written by Matt F from Chirnside Park

    After 4 months of use I can honestly say that the new Magic Trackpad 2 is amazing!
    The battery performance is great and the design and quality is great!
    The device seems to work well, despite the price being higher from the previous model i still believe that it is worth the money.
    I would highly recommend the new Apple Magic Trackpad 2.
    Please feel free to see my more in-depth review on YouTube from MP Productions!

    Fantastic trackpad!

    • Written by Steve P from Vancouver

    I love this trackpad, a huge improvement over the last generation in every regards. The haptic force touch feedback is a thing of genius, and I look forward to seeing this functionality move its way to iPads, and future Apple products.

    The surface is larger and the aspect ratio is more appropriate for wide aspect displays. I use dual displays, and find that this trackpad works really well. I also love how you can click anywhere on the trackpad, rather then being limited to the bottom right or left corner. Paired with the new keyboard, it is a beautiful and highly functional combo. It has a nice responsive feel to it, and the all white design looks great. Another great feature is the ability to physically turn it off (with a switch) and the ability to charge it without needing external batteries. The battery life seems really good and it pairs easily without issue.

    I did upgrade from the previous generation wireless keyboard and trackpad, and despite the crazy price, the upgrade is worthwhile (for me). If you find yourself using photoshop or any drawing tool that uses pressure sensitivity, this trackpad allows you to draw pressure sensitive strokes which is nice (although Wacom products with a stylus are still far superior for any serious creative work).

    Overall, if you can justify the cost, this is an awesome product.

    Just What I Needed

    • Written by Brittany F from Collierville

    Was looking to elevate my MacBook Pro in order to improve my posture, which meant needing a keyboard and mouse/trackpad. I knew I was going to get an Apple mouse or trackpad, and after reading the reviews of both, I decided to go with the trackpad. It's ergonomic and I LOVE the ease of the trackpad with the gestures, tap to click, etc. Also has great battery life thus far, and charges like any other Apple device. Very happy with the purchase, and would highly recommend.

    Great Quality Product

    • Written by Mia Le Bao N from Solihull

    I was unsure which to buy, either the trackpad or Magic Mouse. The trackpad is so easy to use and works so well. Easy to connect to, just turn it on and your MacBook will pick it up straight away, Definitely worth the money. If you prefer using the trackpad on the MacBook, this product is for you, works in exactly the same way.

    Great Product Worth the Investment!

    • Written by Alicia D from Engadine

    For years I've been using the magic mouse, but with the mouse i find that it struggles to connect via bluetooth and i'm constantly having to activate it. Since upgrading from the mouse to the track pad, i find its like sitting on my MacBook Pro. Its easy, its not fussy and a quick set up. If you like the Window's left and right quick, its quick to fix that in the settings so you're not stuck with one click. If you want to spend the $$$, do it you won't regret it.

    Drag & drop hasn't disappeared...

    • Written by Craig N from Grasmere

    With the new Force Touch feature, the trackpad registers two levels of click. If you click lightly and drag, hey no problem! The file will drag & drop just fine, if you press harder you activate the Quick Look.

    Yes, it's incredibly frustrating if you haven't used Force Touch before, but I spent a few minutes experimenting with clicking & gestures & now it's second nature. As others have pointed out, in accessibility you can go to Trackpad/Mouse and then Trackpad Options and change some settings (to revert back to how Trackpad v1 users are used to drag & dropping).

    Other than the short learning curve to get used to the different levels of sensitivity for Force Touch, the increased surface size & construction are a huge step up from the v1 Trackpad, I really dig the white surface too - and the fact that the click feels the same over the whole surface is AMAZING! :)

    Magic Trackpad 2

    • Written by Bruce M from Ottawa

    not sure what all the negative reviews were about I upgrade my trackpad today (had the old one about 7 yrs.). Connected right away and I have tried every gesture I usually use and it is excellent, I am very happy with it!

    Touch me anywhere

    • Written by Mathew S from Gold coast

    This new TouchPad is awesome. The first iteration was terrible with its click only on the lower part of the pad. The new one uses ForceTouch and it is fantastic. You can literally click the pad anywhere and it will work. Battery life and response time is awesome too.

    The Magic Trackpad 2 exceeded my expectations

    • Written by Tim S from McKinney

    I want to say that the Trackpad 2 was a great purchase. It automatically synched to my MacBook Air and was ready to use right away. I had previously owned a magic mouse 2, which was great, but was physically not able to use it any longer. The Trackpad was the right solution. It gave me all the features I was looking for and feels great on my fingers. It felt like I had been using it for years, when I have only had it for a week. Great product!

    It's amazing

    • Written by stephen B from Minneapolis

    As ridiculous as it sounds, I didn't realize it was haptic for at least a few hours after I bought it. I was messing around with the settings and finally realized. It's so well implemented that I honestly thought I was physically clicking the thing. It's the perfect size, it looks great on my desk, it functions flawlessly, I'm not sure how long the battery lasts yet but I'm sure it's several days. Price isn't even a factor, it's so very well worth it.

    Much better than the mouse!

    • Written by Joshua C from Capalaba

    Just brought my iMac 27inch 5K the other week but didn't go with the trackpad option initially instead thinking the mouse would be sufficient. However since I am so used to using the force touch track pad on my Mac Book Pro I found the mouse very hard to get used to, so I went to the Apple store and got the Magic track pad and it is great! Much bigger and easier to glide your fingers on then the one on my Mac Book Pro and so much better than the magic mouse especially when using swipe gestures. Definitely has enhanced the overall user experience on my iMac.

    More solid than its predecessor

    • Written by Mark William U from Quezon City

    This trackpad feels heavier and more solid than the previous model. Since it uses force touch now, clicking feels more comfortable and fluid. You don't really need to buy this if you have the previous model unless you hate the AA Battery. Pros: Rechargeable - goodbye AA batteries :), force touch, bigger (length wise), force touch has more features now, angle is less vs old model Cons: Expensive, no battery indicator - you have to depend on the on-screen notification.
