  • 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!

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.

      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.

      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 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.

All these new flat keyboards are inaccurate, numb, encourage typos, make touch typing more difficult, and generally sacrifice function for visual design. Jony Ive should be ashamed of himself.

      So far great, love it!

      My work has me on the road quite a bit and for years I've made due with simply taking my MBP 15" along. However, there are lots of times I need to work on my MB My work has me on the road quite a bit and for years I've made due with simply taking my MBP 15" along. However, there are lots of times I need to work on my MBP hours at a time and really miss the ergonomic setup at home (MBP w/external 27" monitor attached, both elevated, and using the detached wireless KB and MT). After recently seeing a colleague using a portable Roost laptop stand, I decided to give this a try. So, as part of this experiment, I also decided I'd finally shell out the extra $$ and upgrade to the new Magic keyboard and Magic Trackpad 2. My daughter and son have been using the new ones since Jan 2017 with their Mac Books and neither have ever mentioned any issues (ex. w/dragging, etc.). My older wireless KB and MT have been great, love them both. However, being able to power/recharge the newer MKB and MT2 w/o worrying about bringing a battery charger along too was appealing. After trying out the new MKB and MT2 now for several hours this AM, so far, I'm experiencing absolutely no issues w/ it re: dragging, etc. Like others have mentioned, the MT2 seems to be a bit more responsive to the touch (which I like) than the older MT, but I'm not doing a "side-by-side" test either. I like the slightly lower angle so far. All-in-all I happy with it. TBH I think I'll appreciate the new MT2 even more when I don't have to look for my battery charger in a few weeks (especially when I'm on the road). I'm looking forward with continuing the experiment once my Roost arrives today. The real test will come when I hit the road again on Monday though.

      This thing is awful

It doesn't select text or windows in the same way, it doesn't register clicks the same way. I have not found any way to change how it works, either. My old Magic Trackpad, the battery operated kind, worked great. This one is incredibly frustrating. It makes me wonder if the people who design Apple products even bother to use them anymore. If they do, I don't see how they could have come up with this dud. In what universe is it a good design principle to have a bluetooth trackpad work differently than the one attached to the machine's keyboard? Do they really think we want to use different clicks and gestures depending on which pointing device we are using? Amazingly bad design.
