    Not user friendly at all

    • Written by Silky J from New Delhi

    I have a pain in my right hand by using the mouse. The top part of the mouse (where it should detect to scroll up or down) has no sensor. I always have to move my hands down to scroll. All other mouses let you keep your hand steady without having to move your hand up or down. I would suggest you to not waste any money on it. And I love apple products. I have all of its products from its Air Pods to the latest MacBook Pro.

    Looks nice BUT...

    • Written by Alex S from Geneva

    1. Can't be used while charging.
    2. Gives you low battery warning moments before it dies.
    3. The virtual scroll wheel is accidentally triggered whilst the fingers are resting on the mouse causing chaos in almost all applications e.g. Davinci Resolve, The entire Adobe Suite etc etc... absolute nightmare.

    I have tried to make it work and have put up with it for years. A lot of years BUT NOW I am going switch to a RAZR MAMBA.

    Bad design, but otherwise the same as previous models

    • Written by Katherine V from Seattle

    The positive reviews amuse me "Who are these people? Is someone paying irrational, cantankerous antagonists to write one-star reviews?: No. Some of us are just more aware of good vs. bad product design. I have several bones to pick with Apple in general, and this design is one of them. If your mouse runs out of juice, you're screwed until it re-charges. Sorry, that's bad design. Yes, the keyboard does have superior design because it doesn't interrupt your work flow to charge it. Please consider changing this design in the future.

    Design gone backwards

    • Written by Annita S from Jan Juc

    I love my Magic Mouse, the original version that is!
    I've had the 2 for a couple of months and I'm so frustrated with it.
    It constantly loses connection or becomes erratic in it's movements and the charging thing! What clown decided to put the connector on the bottom instead of on the tail end. At least then it becomes a corded mouse while it charges and I could keep working. And don't get me started on the pathetic battery time! I'm writing this using the touch pad because for the umpteenth time my mouse is on charge.
    A rechargeable mouse is a pointless exercise for me because i used rechargeable batteries that ran for ages and in a flip of a backplate I could be up and running again.
    I REALLY miss my original Magic Mouse! PLEASE make them available again.

    $99 and you can't use it while it's charging?

    • Written by Lyle S from Costa Mesa

    Why didn't the design team put the same idea in this mouse as in the Magic keyboard? At least you can use the keyboard while it's charging, not so with this mouse.

    Battery life is very poor and lets it down

    • Written by Damien L from Mill Park

    I have used Magic Mice for years and love them. However I brought a new 27inch iMac four days ago (which cost almost as much as the national debt of a small European country) and it came with the new rechargeable mouse. I have been using my iMac full on in that time, and at the end of each day, the charge is down to around 10%-15%. Now I have to remember to charge it every night, otherwise next day, "oh look, the mouse has stopped working again".

    My current Magic Mouse is using eneloop rechargeable batteries which last for weeks. (Note some good news is that my magic keyboard is still sitting at 100% in the same time period)

    So why, with your brilliant designs could you not install an internal battery with similar capacity to above, it is not as though you made it smaller?? Big step backwards Apple. Steve would have been disappointed.

    I am switching back to my old trusted Magic Mouse 1.

    Not a great mouse WAY too sensitive

    • Written by Lynda R from Hatfield

    I normally don't write reviews and I've been drinking the Apple kool-aid for over 25 years but this mouse is absolutely horrible. The overly sensitive horizontal scrolling makes me want to throw this thing away. I am forced to use this on my work mac and I finally tossed my personal one and went back to wired until I find a better solution. Sorry Apple. I love you but you have to go back to the drawing board. At least add an option to disallow the horrible super sensitive horizontal scrolling. PLEASE!!!

    The real reason why I dislike it

    • Written by Puneet S from Surrey

    It's unbearably heavy. I'm not saying it's a brick but it's pretty heavy for a mouse - the weight makes it extremely difficult to move the mouse around. A mouse is suppose to feel lightweight. Another reason others have mentioned (and I agree with) is that your middle finger gets tired. It's a sensitive mouse so you cannot have all your fingers just laying there, hence causing the middle finger to just get tired while hovering or doing whatever.

    Don't listen to those annoyed with the placement of the charging port. No one cares how it's being charged (except those who really couldn't think of another reason to dislike it).

    Who approved this?

    • Written by Kaitlin C from Holladay

    Poor design - the charging port is on the bottom so you can't use the mouse while it's charging. Also it's not very ergonomic: too flat and hurts my hand after a few hours of use.

    I do think it's an improvement from the first magic mouse though. I like that it's rechargeable and the battery life lasts forever!

    quality needs to be better

    • Written by Heather V from Brampton

    the shape and design are horrible and don't contour your hand at all .. the mouse itself connects and disconnects without even hitting the on/off switch and when connected to a charging port it refuses to charge. If the more expensive version was guaranteed to work i would purchase it no problem but apple needs to step up its game. The brand name isn't worth all the bugs and diminished quality of products.

    Charging port placement is a design flaw second only to hockey puck mouse

    • Written by Dave G from San Diego

    When I get the warning that the battery is low, it's too late. I have to stop working and plug it in, because it's going to die any second. Because the port is on the bottom, I can't use my computer.

    How about warning me when the battery level is 25 percent, so I can make it through the end of the day? I love everything else about this mouse, but this issue is nearly a deal-breaker. I want to give it a one-star because of how bad the impact can be on my productivity. Trying hard to be objective as I'm sitting here yet again unable to use my computer while this mouse is charging.

    Long story short!

    • Written by Chew D from didcot

    Great mouse but only lasted 2 years! For £70-80 its a joke it has 1 year warranty. Great mouse when it worked but it slowly started playing up.

    1. First started to become unresponsive and slow at times
    2. The scroller packed in and had to buy a new mouse (£6 quid one from Amazon lasts way longer and can buy 10 for the same price lol)

    Is this really an apple product?

    • Written by David V from Dallas

    I've been using the Magic Mouse for years now at home and work. Like every apple mouse it is incredibly un-ergonomic but that is nothing new. I do love the ability to use gestures, that's really the only thing keeping me with this mouse.

    The real kicker here is the new one that came with my iMac, the rechargeable one, can't be used while charging! With the previous model, if you ran out of juice you just popped in some new batteries. With this one, you are dead in the water! Not good for someone who uses it for work 8 hours a day.

    The connection point for the lightning cable is on the bottom of the mouse rendering it useless while charging. It's hard to believe apple designed this. Any idiot would tell you to put the charging point at the front of the mouse so you can continue to use it.

    I can't imagine anyone would actually buy this mouse, I'm sure 99% of folks have it because it came with their computer.

    It's amazing how apple can design something so wonderful like the AirPods but at the same time something so ridiculous like this mouse.

    Moments of Bliss, hours of agony

    • Written by James B from Studio City

    When I finally hurled my magic mouse at the book case across the room in an extremely rare moment of impulsive rage, I was rewarded with a sense of serenity. It's elegant design had long held my frustration with random tracking problems and frequent connectivity issues at bay. Over time, though, no matter how thoroughly I cleaned the laser lens, or how many bits of paper I wedged into the battery compartment to prevent movement, it failed me more often than served me. It hit the wall with a very satisfying explosion, and I am happy to be rid of it. I usually admire Apple design and functionality, but not with this product.

    Sleek, tactile and a bummer to recharge

    • Written by Raymond S from Blantyre

    Like all apple products the Magic Mouse 2 looks good and is easy to use, but recharging is a bummer. As stated numerous times in these reviews the charging port is on the underside of the mouse - dumb.

    Even worse though is the fact that if you need to recharge to mouse from a Macbook Pro, you can't, not without the additional purchase of a USB (type A) to USB (type C) converter. Given to cost of the mouse I would have thought that I would have been able to recharge it from any Apple computer "out of the box".

    Bad design flaw

    • Written by Cathy R from Llandudno

    No complaints with the mouse itself but to have the charging port in a place which renders the mouse unusable while charging is a seriously bad call.

    Super Uncomfortable

    • Written by Nakul G from Wyandotte

    Received this with my 5k iMac. After using it for 10 minutes my hand starts cramping up. It's surprising that Apple would release something so uncomfortable. It looks sleek and nice, but that doesn't mean anything if I can't use it. I used the wired mouse with my old iMac before this and will probably switch back to it.

    I've had this mouse for almost 2 years. I have hardly charged it during this time. Today I accidentally dropped it and now it's toast. I charged it for an hour, it worked for 30 seconds then died. NOW WHAT?! I hate using the track pad! And I don't want to spend $99 again!

    Nonsensical Mouse

    • Written by JC W from Spalding

    Mouse not as responsive as my ‘bog standard’ wired mouse even
    at fastest setting.
    As other reviewer stated, why is charger point on the underside?
    The mouse is rendered unusable whilst charging.
    It’s nonsensical!
    I’m frustrated.
