    Best bluetooth mouse on the market

    I can't imagine using my macbook pro without this mouse. It saves me so much time and it is much better than the trackpad. There's only one other bluetooth mouse on the market that can compete with this one, which is the Logitech MX Master. I tried that one out and the bluetooth connectivity is way worse and it also has no touch features. This is hands down the best accessory! Happy I bought it.

    What is all the fuss about?

    Being an Apple convert since the days of the very 1st iPhone, when my Magic Mouse 1 stopped working (after 8 years) I just went and bought another............ and then I read the reviews of the Magic Mouse 2. "Worst design ever" "Badly designed""Hurts my hand""Cant use whilst charging""The designer should be sacked" etc etc. I thought about cancelling. I didn't and it arrived.

    Clearly some people have nothing to do except moan. The shape is exactly the same as MM1. Yes it is different to a PC mouse but that is why you bought Apple.

    Yes it takes a little bit of time to get used to the great functionality but its worth the effort.

    No, it cannot be used whilst charging. Mine was 96% charged when I took it out of the box and, IT WILL RECHARGE IN THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME THAT IT WOULD TAKE TO CHANGE THE BATTERIES ON A CONVENTIONAL MOUSE. If you want one that has a lead attached to it whilst you use it, don't go for a bluetooth one. This will recharge in the time it takes to make a cup of tea or a visit to the bathroom which I assume we all do!.

    Yes it is overpriced/expensive but that is the price to pay for a superb piece of kit. If you want cheaper, buy a PC.

    It is a great piece of kit even if a little expensive. Don't hesitate to buy.

    Worst designed apple product ever

    You cannot use the mouse while charging - it has to precariously balance upside down - utterly ridiculous!!!

    ...and that's without even having managed to use it yet (o have yet to experience the scrolling problems) - I can't charge it on my new MacBook Pro as it only comes with a USB1 cable - bloody brilliant that the morons in the shop sell you incompatible products!

    So I decided to use it with my old iMac, but I can't pair it as I can't get the most recent iOS on my old iMac and its not compatible with old versions.

    Terrible design, dreadful shop staff

    Magic Mouse 2

    Even though I've never owned the first Magic Mouse I was hesitant on buying one but I love it so far it's an amazing Mouse paired very easy with my MacBook Pro and I didn't want to buy it for 2 reasons the price and the way the charging port was on the bottom and an extra 10$ from the last one just because it's 100% rechargeable yeah no thanks but I made my self buy it. Great Mouse. Just next time make it so we can use the Mouse and charge at the same time.

    Hate to admit it, but I hate the mouse

    It's the horizontal scrolling, it drives me nuts. Tried several ways to disable it, but all options don't work. I thought I just had to get used to the mouse, but after 5+ weeks I'm pretty sure it's just a very bad product...

    It's the worst in Excel and Google Agenda, you simply can't do 2-3 clicks without the mouse going crazy.

    Gonna call Apple, hopefully I get my money back

    The antonym of Remarkable

    Maybe they made a mistake writing the description. Its truly the antonym of remarkable. First of all I had the manually changed the maximum speed the iOS allowed, because even in the maximum speed offered in Preferences, it was enough, it was very slow.

    Beside that, is not precise at all. I use a genius bluetooth mouse and it works just fine. This one instead is pero imprecise.

    The scrolling also is very bad, it really doesn't work properly.

    DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. You will regret it for sure.

    Stupid Design

    Can't use it when it's charging. Worst. Design. Ever. Whoever made that decision should be fired.

    Not bad for general computing

    I've used the Magic Mouse 2 for about a month now, and for me at least, there are elements of this mouse that I like very much, but also elements of it that prevent it from being a great mouse:

    pros:
    1. I do like the sleek form factor of the mouse, and the design is consistent with Apple's modern, stylish lineup of products. However, the small form factor, despite its pleasing appearance, also poses issues (below).
    2. The bluetooth connection works flawlessly, never have issues with connection, and I also like that I can click on the mouse to bring my macbook pro out of sleep.
    3. There's really no competition in this space: the mouse supports a number of gestures that are comparable to gestures you can perform on the trackpad. This makes the mouse very suitable for general mac use.
    4. Works well on a wooden table without a mousepad.
    5. Good battery life.

    cons:
    1. Due to it's small, and uniform form factor, it's ergonomically awkward and uncomfortable. Having migrated from using PCs primarily, I was used to my Logitech MX master, which I could use comfortably all day long. Hence, I'll still stick with my Logitech when I'm working on applications that requires a lot of mouse use (such as Capture Pro 10, Photoshop, etc.)
    2. The right click, while it works, is very inconsistent. I think I've found a sweet spot to click to get the right click working, but it's certainly not as consistent or easy (as in requiring no additional effort) as using mice with a dedicated button for right clicking.

    My recommendation would be to still go ahead and get this mouse if being able to do gestures is important to you. But if you have large hands and/or require all day comfort and precise left & right clicks, go for a 3rd party solution.

    One of the worst computer hardware products I ever used

    It's too small for my hands, it does not fill them. My hand hurts using this mouse. And it's not an overly big hand.
    It's pretty but that's it, not ergonomic.
    Sometimes it tilts while moving, as it's wider at its top.

    Even at tracking speed set to the maximum, it's slow as it does not move the pointer up/down at the same speed as it does left/right.

    I'm fed up using this mouse. It totally spoils the Mac user experience.

    The charging port at the bottom is just ridiculous. This is like putting the fuel port of a car somewhere behind the rear wheel..

    It takes much for me to write a review.
    But this product seems to have never been tested by anyone before it went to sales.
    I am going to return it and replace it by a simple PC mouse.

    Sorry guys, but if I hadn't used a Mac before and wouldn't know that it's the mouse that makes using the Mac so cumbersome, I'd return the whole computer...

    One Downside

    My old magic mouse was not working right with my new MacPro so a new one was bought for me as a present. I love the idea of a lighting port for charging it (less batteries need to be bought) but the location of the port was the only one flaw/downside. It probably should have been placed on the side of the mouse instead of the bottom of it so that it can be used while charging if needed too. I love all Apple products, never have a single issue with any of them. If you are wanting a good quality product, this is it.

    Like this mouse but...

    This mouse works well as advertised but I wish Apple would bring back the friendly green power light of the original Magic Mouse. I am visually impaired and that light was a much clearer indicator to me that the mouse was powered on. I hope someone from Apple sees this review and contacts me !

    Would prefer NO STARS - Looks nice but totally useless and overpriced

    Thought I would by this to go with my MacBook pro because it looks the business.

    However, it is really troublesome to connect to the MacBook (a 10 pound logitech bluetooth doesn't seem to have any issues), you keep having to go to settings and search for it.
    Also many games require you to have a right-click and the mouse's double swipe alternative just doesn't work when I need to left click at the same time (you know the drill - Right click aim, left click fire).
    The mouse is very flat on the desk, so hard to manouver.
    Lastly, which blithering idiot at apple put the lightning port on the bottom so the mouse is unusable while charging? I know you don't need to charge too often, but really how hard would it have bee to put the port at the front of the mouse?

    This is different to a normal mouse just because apple want to be different, not because it is any good.

    Excellent

    Huge improvement from the first one. No connection issues, excellent tracking. I think the reason for people giving it a lower rating is because they couldn't be bothered to read the tech specs and had out of this word expectations.

    Outstanding Mouse

    First, to all those complaining about the charging port at the bottom of the mouse...GET OVER IT. Are you really that stupid and inept that you MUST be able to charge when using it? Charge it overnight or when you are not using your Mac/mouse. That's all you need to do. My first charge lasted 49 days before it got to 15% with daily use. I last charged it on Dec 23 and almost 3 weeks later I am still at 75%. I first thought the charging port was rather stupid but now I realize this keeps you from keeping the mouse plugged in all the time. GREAT!

    Second, to those who are looking for reviews to help you figure out rather or not to buy....all I can say is BUY IT. This is one of the most precise and comfortable mouse I have ever used. I liked the Magic Mouse 1, but I totally LOVE my Magic Mouse 2. It's smooth. It works on many surfaces my other optical devices do not work 9even my Magic Mouse 1). It's very comfortable to use ( you don't hold it like a large mouse). It's a very well built mouse and doesn't feel cheap. Battery life is insane...really. The battery is what impresses me the most.

    Just my opinion. Your mileage may vary.

    Seamless Integration and Excellent Performanc

    my iMac came with a wireless mouse and I enjoyed it and used it a great deal. It was time to replace it due to damage, over some 4-5 years. The new one came in no time at all.

    The delivered mouse is pre-charged so no waiting for an over night charge to begin.
    I followed the very simple guide and was using the new mouse in less than a minute. what can I say. Its wonderful.

    Amazing feeling but a useless tool

    The worst thing for me is the quality of the wireless connectivity. I get so much lag when using the mouse that its just ridiculous for a £80 mouse and its literally in front of the laptop! When using apps that need precision, like photoshop or the office suite you get quite a lot of noise from all the touch surface like miss-clicks, unwanted zoom etc. You can deactivate those but why buying this mouse in the first place since you are not going to use its features.

    Its looking nice on the table but I wouldn't recommend this to a professional that wants high productivity.

    Truly Magical!

    I really don't know why there is so much hate about this mouse on the Internet(maybe because of the price). The moment I unboxed it, I fell in love with it. It's beautiful and yes, Apple does NOT consider aesthetics over function. Its a mouse which might take some time in adapting. Initially, I had little issues in using it and I was tempted to use the trackpad on my MacBook Air 13' but I forced myself to use this mouse and now, my muscle memory has this mouse. The way you glide your fingers is so much fun.

    Pls note I don't use mouse with my work computer(Windows laptop) and did not use mouse for years so this will give you a fair idea that how much I love it that it has made to use this beautiful device. Thanks again Apple. Price is a little steep which is for all the products made by Apple.
    Peace out.

    Perfect for certain people

    I use this mouse for maybe 2 hours a day, and I've had it for about 3 days and it says it's still at 90%, If your using this all day I wouldn't recommend it. You will need a mousepad if you plan on using it on a glass desk. The main downside to this, is that the charging port is on the bottom of it.
