    Best mouse ever created

    I cannot understand the negative reviews for this, or the previous generation, wireless mouse.

    This is (in my most humble opinion) the best mouse ever created. Combine it with BetterTouchTool and one can tap-to-click and use all sorts of gestures in ways which no other mouse could ever replicate. The scrolling function (for which no other app is necessary) is in itself reason to use this mouse above all others.

    And the ergonomics are excellent. I swore to myself that I would stock up on replacements at the slightest hint that the previous generation (that is, the one powered by AA batteries) would be discontinued. I was very pleased to see that Apple did not decide to do anything of the sort. While I have two mice of the previous generation (one each for use with my Macbook Pro and Mac Pro) I have switched to using the new model for both of my Macs as:

    - I find it doesn't disconnect from my Macbook Pro whilst the Macbook Pro is running on battery power (something I found happened more often with the latest OS X 10.11 betas);
    - the mouse does actually slide more smoothly along one's desk;
    - its very easy to change the pairing of the mouse via USB (this is clearly a feature which was introduced given the problems which the previous generation faced with pairing with multiple Macs).

    Charging port on the bottom? Really?

    Whose bright idea was it to put the charging port right on the bottom of the mouse? It's such a pain to charge, because you can't use it while it's charging. At least before I could charge batteries, and just swap the discharged ones with fresh ones. Now I can't use my mac at all while the mouse is charging. Plus, I can't charge it overnight because my employer requires me to shut down my mac. So I had to get a wall wart in order to charge the mouse. Not very well thought out, was it, Apple? Put the charging port on the side so I can use it while it's charging... please!

    Terrible

    This mouse lacks precision.

    It'snon-ergonomic and results in sore writs from even modest use.

    You cannot right click without completely lifting all other fingers from the mouse.

    The charging port is on the bottom and WILL NOT charge as quickly as apple states unless you use a 1A charger which you will not get from the USB port on your mac. Because of this design, when the li-po battery inside degrades (which will happen in 2-3 years no matter what), the mouse is garbage.

    It is VERY picky about the surface that it will be able to read.

    Just about any other mouse on the planet is superior. They're design to fit the human hand.

    Good mouse

    I wouldn't say it's worth the upgrade over the first Magic Mouse, but if you just need a decent mouse that works well with your Mac you can't go wrong with this. It works perfectly and the build quality is great, just as you'd expect from Apple.

    Great Mouse!

    If you like the original Magic Mouse then you will love this as it removes the need to carry spare batteries...

    The charging port is on the bottom and while it can't be used while charging, a full charge only takes a couple of hours and should last about a month. If you do forget to charge it and run out, then a quick charge of a few minutes (while you go and get a drink etc) will last you about a day.

    Never worked

    Did not work out of box. Updated the OS. Still failed. Really? A mouse that my system won't even recognize. What's become of Apple?

    Magic Mouse 2 & Keyboard review

    I recently (Nov 2015) purchased one of the new iMac late 2015 models that included the new keyboard & mouse. I must say that I am impressed so far with the battery life as both are still working off the initial charge (3 months later), currently (25% & 18%). While I agree that having the charge port on the bottom of the mouse is a poor design however, it does not bother me. I am a highly technical person but I do not use this imac every day for hours at end since I already spend hours at a computer at work daily. I also have the common sense to turn off the mouse & keyboard when i'm not using it so i'm pretty sure that makes a difference in the battery life.

    Overall i give them both a thumbs up.

    MM2

    I had the original mouse but it became faulty- batteries needed changing every 2 days.
    I went to the Manchester Apple shop and they kindly exchanged it for the MM2.
    Being rechargeable is a big plus and it is also smoother to use.
    Thanks Apple

    Worst mouse ever

    Why would anyone think of putting the charge plug on the bottom? If you want a cordless mouse that is fine but it is required to be able to use the mouse while it is recharging.


    Avoid this mouse at all cost.

    Absolutely HORRIBLE design

    why in the TECHNICAL WORLD YOU COME FROM would you design a rechargeable product that doesn't allow you to continue to use it if it runs out of a charge?!?!?

    you could have designed it with the lightning connector in the front and or the back to allow it to charge and still be used as if it were a mouse with a cord.

    COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT DESIGN

    Great mouse, but epic fail on charging port location

    I love the Apple Magic Mouse. Good ergonomics, accurate and effective touch pad, good battery life. But the Lightning charging port is on the bottom, so it is not possible to use the mouse while it is charging. This is an epic design fail on Apple's part.

    Excellent mouse!

    Not sure if there is a conspiracy to put down this mouse but I find it excellent. What I like the most about the mouse is the multitouch ability. I love navigation webpages by flipping my finger on the mouse. I find it comfortable in my hand. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is when you need to plug the Lightning cable (included) into the mouse, you can't use it due to the location of the Lightning port on the mouse.

    Other than that, I'm not sure why people are complaining about it. You can even find an Apple Store near you and try it before you buy it. Or just return it and be done with it.

    Final note: initially, after I paired the mouse, my system would freezes in a system panic. I did research a lot and after examining the panic log, I realized that I had USB Overdrive installed on my older Mac and when I migrated my data to the new Mac, it did migrate USB Overdrive. Even though it was not enabled, it was mentioned in the panic log as one of the kernel extension in the system. Immediately alerted by this, I promptly uninstalled USB Overdrive, rebooted and now I can use my mouse without any problem. So, if you have a kernel panic after pairing your mouse, check if you have anything that modifies or augments your USB peripherals. Many kernel panic are caused by faulty kernel extensions or faulty USB devices.

    this mouse is horrible

    this is the most temperamental piece of technology i've used in a long time. first it doesn't work on certain mousepads. then i find a mousepad it will actually work on, and suddenly one day ... it doesn't. i am literally needing to use my macbook pro as a mousepad, because the reflective surface is the only thing that works with this stupid mouse. sort of. because it's still relatively ineffective and frustrating to use on that surface. apple really needs to get this mouse situation together.

    Bad mouse

    Paid $72.00 for my Apple Mouse 2. It would not mate to my new MacBook Pro. The mouse obviously is broken. I tried to charge it and see if it would work. Still would not mate for more than one second. Here's my point. For $72.00 the quality control should be much better. This is unacceptable at any level. Now I have to return the mouse and take more time out of my busy day. I like apple but I cannot recommend their mouse. It is disappointing for an Apple product. I have just switched over to using Apple. Maybe their marketing is better than actual quality.

    Magic Mouse 2

    This product excludes more Mac users than it includes: the new Apple policy? Just think of putting the recharging port on the underside of the mouse.

    I really like this mouse actually. They really should rethink the way it plugs in to charge.. that bit is cr*p.

    Getting Better

    First I will rubbish all those who say it needs a 2015 iMac. My mouse paired perfectly with my 2012 27" iMac and has worked perfectly ever since.

    I don't find the feel of it much different to the earlier version and cannot understand why a reviewer complained it can't be used with big hands. I have huge hands that need XXXL gloves and have never noticed any problem.

    My main reason for buying it was I was fed up with forever putting new batteries in my old mouse and then continually having to move them to keep contact and, in turn, Bluetooth connection. Now it's great, it NEVER loses contact.

    My only minor criticism is charging. Charging off the computer is only possible if the computer is turned on and it cannot be used while charging, partly as connecting the cable turns it off and partly as the charging port is on the base. I have other Bluetooth kit that functions while charging there does not seem a technical reason why it can't be done and I am sure the power socket could have been positioned on the side. Fortunately I can use my iPhone charger but this problem it loses it one star
