  • 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 per cent larger than the previous trackpad. This design, along with a lower profile, makes scrolling and swiping through your favourite content more productive and comfortable than ever.

    Magic Trackpad 2 pairs automatically with your Mac, so you can get to work straight 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.

      Great Track Pad

      This is a much better track pad than previous version. Wonderful ease of movement around the screen, instant response to movement and gestures and a much easier This is a much better track pad than previous version. Wonderful ease of movement around the screen, instant response to movement and gestures and a much easier right click. The main improvement is the design which has made the trackpad stable and as a consequence easier to use. Even my youngest child noticed how much better Magic Trackpad 2 is and has stopped wanting to use a mouse. One more thing the connectivity with a lightening cable is just a fantastic tool to start up.

      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.

      Don't touch this product. Overated and suboptimal in performance

      I bought the Magic Trackpad a few days ago. Nothing Magical about it. If left unatended for more than a few minutes it reverts to not functioning. I have to use I bought the Magic Trackpad a few days ago. Nothing Magical about it. If left unatended for more than a few minutes it reverts to not functioning. I have to use my Wacom tablet to resolve functionality. Its expensive and given I've only had it for a couple of day, I fear for the future. Please don't be tempted. Its unreliable. Thanks Apple for the waste of a lot of money!

      A really super trackpad!

Needless to say, I didn't return this one. This is a beautiful trackpad. It feels like an upgrade to my MacBook Pro trackpad. And it worked perfectly directly out of the box. As far as claims of glitchy connections with the laptop, I've dealt with a lot of glitchy wireless mice in the past even to the point that I finally went back to completely hard wired. This one, however, is not glitchy! It is rock solid. From the moment I turned it on, it connected with my MacBook Pro and was super responsive and precise. The only time I had an issue with it dropping connection to the laptop was as it neared the end of the battery charge. It would connect and disconnect over and over again. I plugged it in and charged it, but it kept doing the same thing. So I switched it off and back on and it was as good as new, solid, precise, perfect. A lot of reviewers complained about the click and drag. Let me clarify. This is a "force touch" trackpad. It gives you one functionality with a light touch and a different one with a heavy touch. It can take some getting used to. Click and drag requires a light touch. If you tend to click heavy when you drag, place the finger of one hand lightly on the pad for "click" and use the finger of your other hand for "drag." My guess is that it won't be long until you are clicking and dragging like a pro one-handed. So don't believe all the negative reviews. This is a really super trackpad, and I think you'll love it.

      Awful product - don't waste your money, should be able to give no stars!

      I bought this new trackpad to replace my old one (which was brilliant, but it recently got broken).

When you are using it, the cursor gets stuck on items and wont let go ( Had to shut my machine off as the only way to get it off) When you are browsing on websites, It will unexpectedly load new pages as if you'd clicked on them, even if you haven't (its done this repeatedly when I've not been clicking). Then when I've tried to click on a link to open a new page - its wont! It just keeps trying to highlight words and look them up in the dictionary. I've tried adjusting all the settings and various combinations and it doesn't seem to make any difference. Come on apple, you can do better than this
