  • 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 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 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.

      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.

      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.

      Magic Trackpad 1 Was So Much Better. Don't waste your money.

      Sure, the Magic Trackpad 2 has more features, however the battery WILL fail on you sooner than later (which is SO TYPICAL OF APPLE NOW!). Spent $130 on this whe Sure, the Magic Trackpad 2 has more features, however the battery WILL fail on you sooner than later (which is SO TYPICAL OF APPLE NOW!). Spent $130 on this when it first came out about 2 years ago. The battery is completely dead now (will not charge or even turn on) and it's NOT replaceable. Looked it up on IFixIt and they intentionally designed it to make it difficult (if not impossible) to replace. To add insult to injury, brought it into the Genius Bar and since it's out of warranty, they offered to replace it for the SAME price as a NEW Trackpad 2, but with a 3 month warranty (instead of 1 year if I bought it completely new). Avoid wasting your money.

      Very happy with my new (second hand) Trackpad 2

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.

      Haptic Engine Stops Working

      It worked as it should at first, but just a few weeks in the haptic engine would stop working. I would unpair and pair again, power off and on, recharge, reconn It worked as it should at first, but just a few weeks in the haptic engine would stop working. I would unpair and pair again, power off and on, recharge, reconnect, and I would get it to work again for a little bit. Recently, just a few months after I purchased, the haptic engine completely stops working no matter what I try. I get no haptic response whatsoever, it still lets me drag the cursor and tap to click but there is no feedback at all which makes it a pain to use, especially for the price I paid for it.
