    Cable?

    • Written by Gregory M from Trevor

    Works like a mouse should work. Purchased for use with a 2018 MacBook Pro; since Apple decided to limit ports on the new MacBook to Thunderbolt 3, it would be nice if they would include the same cable with the mouse (T3 to T3) rather than a Thunderbolt 3 to USB (thereby requiring an adapter cable to charge the mouse).

    Garbage

    • Written by Kate J from Nerang

    Best place for this mouse is the Garbage Bin. Loses connectivity every 2-3 minutes. Have to wait 10-15 second for it to connect again. Apple swapped out my mouse with a "new" mouse but was not in a box, which was fine for a week and then started to fail. Back to the Apple Mouse 1 (with batteries) that works fine. Apple Mouse 2 is a piece of garbage and a complete waste of money. Also agree about the design flaw with the charger underneath! AVOID!!!

    Middle Mouse Button Please!

    • Written by Eric G from Fairview Heights

    I got this Magic Mouse when I purchased my new 21.5 iMac earlier this year. I love my new system but the Magic Mouse 2 is practically useless to me without a middle mouse button! As an artist I rely on software programs which utilize a 3 button mouse. I've tried to find a workaround through YouTube videos and the App Store. Nothing I've tried works.

    I understand there's a lot of negative feedback on the design of the mouse which doesn't allow you to use the mouse while it's being charged. I think it's odd how the cable plugs into the underside of the device but I typically plug it in while I'm away from my iMac. I notice that it charges VERY quickly and a full charge will last me several weeks!

    I just hate the idea of having to purchase another mouse for my iMac in order to fully utilize the software programs that I use the most!

    Why have a cavity for the laser?

    • Written by Steven C from Milford

    The cavity for the laser made sense when it took AA batteries and the plate could be removed so you could easily clean off the area. Clearly the designers don't have cats. In case you didn't know, they shed fine hairs and love to lay on your desk right next to your arm when you're working. So cat hair inevitably ends up on the mousepad, even when the cats are well-groomed, and once in a while the tiniest hair ever will end up stuck in the laser cavity and break the $100 mouse. You have to flip the thing over on an operating table with a bright surgical light and use tweezers wearing a sterile operating suit to remove it. At this point, with no removable plate for that area, why not just cover the entire laser cavity flush against the bottom of the mouse with a clear plastic so nothing can get in? It's ridiculous that I have to go through this so often. Aside from that flaw that was bad before but far worse now that the plate isn't removable, I have always liked these mice.

    The Magic Mouse Needs a Complete Redesign

    • Written by Adam S from Loveland

    Apple should have redesigned the Magic Mouse from the ground up so that the charge port is not on the bottom of it. You should be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time. Apple was lazy and just kept the same design and threw a lightning port on the bottom instead of redesigning the mouse to have a charge port in a sensible location.

    Still a 5-Star, in spite of -

    • Written by Robert H L from Key Biscayne

    $20 extra for Space Gray.

    USB-A to Lightning cable. Really? What computer do they offer in Space Gray that does not have USB-C? Now, list the Space Gray Laptops that are ONLY USB-C. For the "Space Gray" 20 extra bucks, they could at least give us the correct cable, especially since they just charged me $19 for the cable that should have come with it in the first place.

    Charging port on the bottom - not a problem. Much better than hauling around extra batteries.

    Hand discomfort during heavy use.

    • Written by Dennis T from Applecross

    I have used the Magic Mouse 2 for 4 years I have played lots of games over time but now I write books much of the day, 8 so far in the last 2 years. When I edit I work the mouse hard. I also do a lot of photo editing. I have used mice from most manufacturers. I love Apple design. That is why I used the mouse for so long. It works well but it is ergonomically not good for me. If I use it in games I get hand cramp. In editing I get thumb cramp. I ignored it and got tendinitis in my thumb. So I got out some of my games mice and realized they were so much more comfortable in long term use. They have Bluetooth and work fine which was my biggest fear and charge while using,yay. This Mouse is fine in short term use, looks lovely, but in longer use I have my doubts. I would like to make recommendation that Apple make more ergonomically designed mice for heavy users and the elderly. I would like to see more attention to function over form. The shape of my relaxed hand does not fit the Apple mouse.

    Hope You Like Using Cables With Your New Blutetooth Mouse

    • Written by Ben O from Seattle

    Want to use your new $100 bluetooth mouse with more than one MacBook? You're going to have to find an adapter (their laptops support USB-C, but they send you a USB 3.1 cable) and plug the mouse into your laptop every single time you switch between devices because it's not going to pair unless you do so.

    Far too expensive to perform like a peripheral from 1999.

    I prefer the first Magic Mouse over this one...

    • Written by Kyle D from Huntersville

    I bought this mouse to go with my new Space Grey MacBook Pro. I love the excellent battery life and the gestures that the mouse facilitates. However, I find that is quite awkward to use from an ergonomics standpoint. It seems that the position I find myself holding the mouse in gets quite uncomfortable during prolonged periods of use. Additionally, this thing show fingerprints horribly! Admittedly, I am quite OCD when it comes to things like this, but it really destroys an otherwise beautifully designed product. I don't mind having to plug it in on the bottom, but I would rather just swap the batteries out like I did with my old Magic Mouse.

    Poor Design

    • Written by Laura W from Waynesboro

    While the mouse works fine, the charge port being on the bottom of the mouse is a very poor design. Thus, when charging, rendering the mouse useless until charge is complete.

    Just one Issue!

    • Written by Domingo M from South Elgin

    I can live with plugins the cable from the bottom. Like the feel, but the gloss finish is TERRIBLE! Finger prints all over the top surface. It should have the same finish as the keys on the Space Gray keyboard.

    Expensive and Poor design

    • Written by Eric A from Santa Teresa

    So expensive when compared to other products out there. Then when it needs charging you can't use it, because the charge port is on the bottom. Poor design from a company that is suppose to design great products. Very disappointed.

    Good mouse. Annoying to charge.

    As others have noted, you can't use the mouse while it's charging. Everything else about it is great.

    The charging cable port is on the bottom of the mouse making it unusable when the batteries die (which they do frequently).

    Mixed Bag

    The gestures are nice, it visually looks pleasing but it really is not the most ergonomically friendly device. My main complaint... how am i supposed to charge my mouse when the usb-c cant even accept the included cable? a ridiculous oversight

    Impossible for real work

    • Written by Jorge R from Talca

    It's sad for a apple fan see how in Magic Mouse the designers forgot to think in function over the form, they have tried to do an sleek design that it's beautiful but worthless for work; that is because it have a so flat and thin design that it has no room for your thumb and little finger, for work in auto cad you need to constantly have your little finger up and hurts after a few minutes, so my beautiful iMac has now a a 6 dollar Logitech gray mouse.

    This is amazing

    • Written by Trevor S from Stanwood

    I dont know why others are complaining about the port, because it charges in two minutes to give nine hours of battery life. The mouse works very well, connecting it to a mac is easy and when fully charged, it lasts for a month

    Brilliant in Space grey

    • Written by Paul K from Pelican Waters

    Since 2013 when I got the black trash can Mac Pro, i have wanted an apple branded black or space grey magic mouse for a long time, the last one i had was the original one from the very first generation of the magic mouse and it still works!! but it requires AA batteries as well, and even with rechargeable ones its a pain, But I am very happy to have finally switched back to apple mouses and especially the magic mouse 2 love it, it is much improved in tracking since the original version and you don't have to worry about the bottom cover for the battery falling off. The real reason though t went back was because they have now black and space grey keyboards and mouse's

    the only issue I have with it is what everyone has an issue with and thats the silly placement of the lighting port for charging fortunately it doesn't require much charging which is good.

    Very smooth to use with my space grey MacBook pro 15 inch with touchbar and it just works, also very good quality.

    Great color to match MBP13 & MPB15 Rechargeable & lighter

    • Written by Jason C from Elmwood Park

    Lets address the bulk of complaints about the lightning charge port on the bottom. It Is Not An Issue! As another reviewer has said in only a few minutes of charging it will last for hours. I can confirm this. five minutes charging and it works all day and into the night. This thing is lighter and has better bottom rails than the original; it slides nicely. I have it paired with a 2017 MPB13" and a 2017 MPB15" both with the Touch-bar + Thunderbolt 3 & four USB-C port models. The MBP13" and Mouse are backpacked to work every day and I have not had much problems swapping which MBP the mouse connects to. On occasion I've had to plug it in for it to swap to my 15" from recent use with the 13", but that's done in seconds. It does seem to scroll and be more sensitive than the original and would be nice to have a control for sensitivity, but it's very minor gripe. My only real complaint is that the Space Gray is $20 more.
