    Absolutely love this mouse

    So I've been using the previous magic mouse with the batteries that are rechargeable and it was great and easy to use. The only thing that was a pain in the behind was that the plate on the bottom that held the batteries in would fall off or come loose from time to time. It was only slightly annoying. Well it stopped working well for some unknown reason and I decided to order a new mouse and see that they have redesigned it . I just got my new mouse and I love it so much. It is so easy to use , so light and smooth and quick. I work on my computer all day and I need to be quick and the mouse makes all the difference. I'm super happy with it and no more batteries to fall out the bottom. It's perfect !! Thanks Apple! I use to be a PC but now I'm a MAC and I love my Mac and my Magic Mouse 2 !

    Happy Girl

    Recharging problems

    Placing recharging at the bottom of the mouse so it can't be used, makes it impossible to use my computer if I
    neglect to recharge the mouse. Also, if the computer is shut down, the recharging doesn't take place?

    I am shocked at this poor design. I hope you are still selling the battery-run mice.. I hope Apple pays attention to these reviews and
    redesigns the rechargeable mice. I have a new one that is unopened. I hope to return it for a design that works!

    What's happening to Apple?

    Beautifly useless

    1. Disconnects frequently and that is extremely annoying.
    2. Sometimes completely loses connection and does not reconnects despite being fully charged and close to iMac. Powering mouse on/off does not help. After rebooting iMac a few times with an air of $8 wired PC mouse I was so infuriated that returned the iMac back to Apple.
    3. Charging port location is amazing in its dumbness. It's like placing a cup's handle INSIDE the cup.
    4. Very LOUD clicking sound!

    Entirely worthless and expensive piece of junk. If you need a mouse - get a 3-rd party one, preferably not a bluetooth. If gestures are so important - use a touchpad instead.

    Great mouse,with only one complaint

    This mouse works well and easy to clean.
    (other than not being able to use it while it is charging,)
    It would help if the charging port was on the front of the mouse instead of the bottom but it charges fast and reliable.
    Its a great simple mouse that does everything you need once configured to your personal needs.
    and it works on my 2016 iMac as well as my 2008 iMac.

    System Requirements
    Bluetooth-enabled Mac computer with OS X v10.11 or later.

    Works like it should

    I know there are many reviews out there of people getting really upset that the mouse has to be flipped and charged. If you can't remember to charge it once a month, then a power up whilst you boil the kettle will get your through to the end of the day. No one is THAT dedicated that you can't give it 10 mins.

    I have a Magic Mouse 1 as well, as the 2 holds its power better. Less battery replacing. Other than that I see very little difference. Great bit of kit.

    Lousiest mouse Apple's ever made!

    Who is Apple hiring these days for their hardware and software...PC people?
    This mouse is rubbish. Cheap feeling, symmetrical (annoying when it's constantly upside down)
    and has a lousy button that like your killing a cockroach - no positive click here!

    Also, thoroughly unreliable, which is unforgivable given it's irrationally high cost.

    I'm sure poor Steve is rolling over in his grave with this one.
    AVOID.

    Bad Product

    Why is the tracking so slow?!

    Form over function

    Well, this mouse looks fantastic, but I find it really slows me down whilst working. Ergonomically I find it comfortable, but unresponsive and not really suited to the human hand. There's also the problem of the charging port being placed under the mouse rendering it unusable when charging. I've been using it for 4 months and thought I'd be used to it by now, but alas.

    Would be five stars...

    ...except that you cannot plug in while using.

    As other elements of this mouse are truly wonderful. It has long battery life (weeks of heavy use), very functional, good looking. I just wish I could continue to use it when plugged into USB to charge. The magic keyboard does.

    Lack of advice

    Bought this at the Apple store in Los Gatos, CA. Wasn't advised that I had to be running Mac OS 10.11; which I am not (so I can continue to run all of my Adobe CS 6 sotfware which stops at OS 10.5). So now I am still stuck w/o a Mouse, and I have to waste an hour taking this back.

    Annoying that the sales people aren't alerted to advise people of this point.

    Also annoyed that the charging slot is underneath, presumably to emphasize that it is wireless?

    Moronic.

    Apple seriously needs a department to make sure that advances do not mess with fundamental Apple features, and that they they are better solutions, not just change for change sake. And also not moving towards Microsoft mentality, because of hiring Microsoft employees.

    An example: I also have an 30" Apple Cinema Screen Matte-finish monitor in my design, photography studio, which I sometimes use to review Netflix films. But suddenly I cant watch Netflix videos online in Mac Safari on that Monitor because of some coding switch, even though I can still watch Netflix online videos with no problem in Firefox, or Chrome. Pathetic. Apple is turning its back on its core creative base. Matte finish screens are better for design and photo work.... Apple is only selling to intertainment users, and even then gloss finish can be an issue with reflections.

    I'd give up on Apple, but there's no place else to go.

    An Office Managers Nightmare

    No point in echoing the same thing everyone else has said, of course they dropped the ball on this one. As an Office Manager who oversees IT for 30 people, I now encounter an almost daily struggle of someone whose mouse has ran out of battery and need to find something for them to use while it sits there, upside down, charging and rendered utterly useless.

    $80 + tax for innovation like this is just silliness on a whole new level.

    One Star Reviews Ridiculous

    The one star reviews on here are ridiculous. It is the same as the Apple Mouse 1 but lighter and with a chargeable battery. So what if the charging port is on the bottom. It's not like you are using the mouse 24/7. When you are done using it plug it in and it is ready next time you use it. Also, people are complaining it is too small for their hands. That is a personal issue. Do you really expect Apple to make a extra large mouse for those that have abnormally large hands. Trust me this is a top notch mouse that is highly customizable. If you have giant hands and need something to complain about go buy a trash Logitech that will last 3 months and break.

    Most annoying mouse I have ever owned.

    I swear this mouse has Tourette's. I enter a number in Illustrator (5.2, let's say) and it randomly increases it (to 18452 or more). I waste an INSANE amount of time hitting Command-Z every day, undoing this mouse's freaky behaviors. I even slowed down the tracking speed and that didn't help. I think it's just too sensitive. It's as though an errant cat hair or a gentle breeze causes it to flip out.

    And how a company that is synonymous with brilliant design could come up with a mouse that requires you to flip it over to charge it is beyond me. This thing should be able to charge while I'm using it! I do like not having an extra cord, but the psychotic performance negates that positive feature. After 3 months of fighting it, I'm going back to my Mighty Mouse.

    Replacement should be offered

    I like the sleek design, but it ends there. When I want to left click, I almost always have to attempt at least twice because it only responds if my finger is almost on the bottom of it. Extremely poor design to have the charging port on the bottom. This renders the not-so-magic mouse useless while charging. I have to constantly check the charge level because there are no warnings until it is about to die. I have had this iMac and Magic Mouse 2 since 1/28/17 and am very disappointed in the mouse. Last evening I decided to proactively check the battery level and it was at 48%. So I plugged it in all night and this morning it is only at 82%. For the prices we pay for Apple quality, we should all get a free replacement, in my opinion.

    Right-click catastrophic

    Some important features on Apple products are extremely unfriendly. I don't want to mention iTunes, but the mouse - right-click is not right click in 80% of the cases. I mean, congrats for a nice design but it doesn't work when I need it.

    I love it but it's stupid

    I do love using this mouse, it's comfortable, responsive and aesthetically complements the rest of my set-up. HOWEVER, who on earth thought it was a good idea to put the charging port on the bottom of the mouse???! While it's charging, it can't be used. Luckily it charges fairly quickly (rumour is just a 2 minute charge would be enough for 8 hours) but still. It's annoying to have to have a back-up mouse should it need a charge at an inopportune time. Hopefully the next version rectifies this major design flaw.

    Abomination of industrial design

    This mouse is pathetic. It's an abomination. The charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. Run out of power while you're using your shiny £80 Magic Mouse 2? TOUGH. You'll need another mouse, as you can't charge this one while you use it. This is an absolute disgrace. An appalling example of industrial design.

    Stay away. Do not buy.

    Sidestepping innovation!

    Other than weight, there are no changes here, oh, except for the fact that this mouse is now rechargeable thanks to a port that is in the most inconvenient place imaginable - on the bottom of the mouse. So, you have to use another mouse while it's charging. How can Apple miss this problem? I own three other mice that have charging ports on the front so you can either leave them plugged in as a wired mouse, or conveniently charge while working.

    Other than that, the things we still liked about the mouse are still there, the things we didn't like are still there too. I bought and returned mine same day.

    Epic Failure

    The charging port is on the bottom, which renders it useless when it expires halfway through a document, what highly paid genius decided the bottom would be a great place for a charging port?
    Sorry Apple, epic failure..........
