    Love it

    Seems as if the ratings are either you love it or you don't. I personally love it and have had no issues with it like some claim to have. For every day use it's perfect, but it probably wouldn't be the best mouse for someone who has develops software or someone who's job depends on a computer. So, in other words, this mouse is great for day to day computer use.

    What a brilliant little thing

    Exemplar in design....exemplar in use. Another brilliant innovative invention by Apple, not much more to be said. Ok, charging port on the bottom is a bit odd but then who is using a device like this for 24 hrs flat out, and if you can't remember to charge it, try and figure out who's fault it is. Anyway, it doesn't need charging that often, even with heavy use gossiping on social media until the small hours. We have Apple-fied our life for the simple reasons this little magic device embodies... simplicity, usefulness and design.

    Next time wireless charging "Genius"

    Seriously, who was the genius that had the idea of placing the charging connector below... How can you use the mouse while charging? nobody thought about that? So difficult was to provide the magic mouse with wireless charging? obviously, innovation is a word that Apple has been forgotten its meaning.

    Extremely Disappointing

    I wasn't a fan of this mouse and have moved back to a standard cheap usb mouse instead.

    PROs:

    - Very slim and comfy
    - Reasonably responsive for a wireless.

    CONs:

    - Can't right click while the left finger is resting on the mouse. If like me you rest both fingers on the mouse it's by design unable to tell which actually clicked and presumes a left click. You have to keep fingers off the mouse by default which is uncomfortable. This is particularly frustrating for games.
    - No option to add custom gestures. On the track pad I have several custom gestures set up for my virtual desktops and there's no way to add these to MM2. There's also no way I've found to include MM2 into custom shortcuts.
    - Charging plug is on the bottom. You can't use and charge.

    I don't understand the purpose of a gesture mouse when you can only add limited gestures not custom ones. Surely this product is more useful for power users with custom productivity setting rather than forcing users into the default mac gestures.

    Magic Mouse 2

    I like how the mouse works, so far no issues once i updated to "El Capitan" . My macbook came with Yosemite i still was able to use the magic mouse but i could not use the scroll function. Once i updated it, it work perfectly. The only thing i dislike about this mouse is the charging function.

    Horrible Mouse

    This mouse is pretty much unusable. You have to constantly fight with it to get do anything. It just totally freaks out some apps like Amazon Kindle.

    Mine was included in a recent iMac purchase. I'm sure I paid way too much for a device that simply doesn't work at all like it should.

    I replaced it with a cheap Logitech mouse and am having no problems with my iMac now.

    If I could give this 0 stars I would.

    I'm so confused

    I absolutely can not believe this product. It shouldn't even bear the Apple sign. Is there anyone out there that can explain to me why they put the charging port on the bottom v the side? I couldn't even use it. I'm so disappointed in this product, especially considering the cost. I have no idea what's going on with Apple. However, it's blatantly obvious that something is really wrong. Either their design team went out to lunch and forgot to come back or they failed to have actual consumers test out this product. Or both

    Not worth buying

    I love my 13 inch Macbook Pro, and decided to invest in what I thought would be a great mouse. But the Magic Mouse is anything but efficient, it is uncomfortable, slow and rough. The reality is that the build in trackpad is so much better at everyday computing.

    So my advise, if you really want a mouse go for a 3rd party one like Logitech, they tend to be cheaper and way nicer to use.

    Big disappointment Apple ;(

    Replace ASAP

    This mouse will give you headaches because when it does work it's great but it rarely does. Bluetooth connection is horrible it drops constantly. The mouse isn't very comfortable as a daily driver. The port to charge is in the worst spot that guy should be demoted out of the design team.

    Tragic Mouse

    Continually drops Bluetooth connection. Just like the old 'Magic' mouse - which this one was purchased to replace in the hope of finally having an efficient mouse.
    This combined with the ridiculous recharging system leaves me with no choice but to return it. I'll go back to a USB wired mouse. I'm tired of wasting time with these wireless devices.
    Apple are trying to be to clever for their own good. Mind you it shouldn't be that difficult to engineer a mouse that is actually reliable - especially considering all the design talent at Apple but somehow they just mess up on this very simple piece of kit.

    Probably great if you're new to Apple products

    Reading others' reviews, the key theme seems to be that this is a great mouse if you're new to Apple products or have suffered through the (apparently even worse?) Magic Mouse 1.

    Magic Mouse 2 is capable of so much, but the developers have severely restricted the usability. Tap to click, a standard on MacBooks for years (since perhaps 2008), is not even an option in the system preferences for this. Instead, you must download 3rd party applications that are inelegant at best, but most often seem to render the MM2 nearly unusable by overriding so many of Apple's default settings, creating unpredictable conflicts.

    Honestly, it's a bit difficult to enumerate all of the issues that I've had with the MM2. I've been using mine for nearly 2 weeks and will be returning it. I'd recommend trying it out at an Apple Store or borrowing one from a friend if you're considering one. I think that a future Magic Mouse will be well worth the price. This one, though, feels like it was pushed to market too early.

    Lightning charge capability convenient

    I use this with my MacBook Pro instead of using the laptop's trackpad. Responsive and the gesture features are fantastic. Charges quickly without having to continuously swap out batteries.

    Excellent Refresh of an Apple Mouse

    After using this product for a few months the Apple mouse has served its use remarkably well.
    It still retains it's charge cycle and has that month long usage after a two hour charge.
    I use the mouse regularly each hour several hours a day and there's been no issue with it running out.

    For those at work who dock their phone or have a lighting cable there, one a month usually upon the battery warning appears, simply connect it on the way home and it'll be ready for the next day and month. Alternative is during the lunch break if it appears earlier in the day, a quick lunch break charge will leave it ready for about half a month so there is real concern for the battery every running out.
    Rechargeable upgrade is definitely a perk over storing a cabinet of time degrading batteries.

    Usability is excellent is the precision and speed for pointer specific uses is excellent. It glides over all desks, with wood being the least smooth but by no means rough.
    The trackpad like surface above with multitouch may seem excessive a technology for the gestures but what it allows is for one to rest the hand comfortably on the mouse without a palm arch on higher mouses without triggering off undated gestures. Multi-touch means the mouse will recognise deliberate movements over general hand movements that occur naturally during the movement and use of the mouse. A right click mode is available whereby the touch top recognises the mouse button was clicked solely on the right side triggering a right click command, it's seamless and intuitive as are the gestures which allow excellent workflow and control.

    It's a clean good looking mouse, which functions superbly and as stated. Having excellent battery life and ergonomics (though it may take some adapting for "avocado in your palm" mice users such as myself, but this is entirely like getting used to a different car)
    It's compact, pairs instantly upon lightning connection to your MacOS device and comes with a 95% charge so it's ready to go for a month.

    For those who clean their mice it has little other than a wipe down and a mildly damp cloth along the mouse edges to pick up dust means the mouse is easy to clean.

    Excellent technologies and engineering come together without flaunting individual strengths against one another to provide a mouse that for all it's strengths retains user end usability and quality for efficiency of work and durability.

    Would happily recommend to all those needing a mouse especially Macbook family users in need of extra fine pointer precision and heavy mouse work, an excellent pairing to the Macbook's trackpad.

    Seriously what was Jonathan Ive thinking?

    Dear Jonathan Ive, shame on you for this poor design decision. You are better than that.
    I feel that Apple contracted out this design to some 3rd party. (you did, didn't you).

    But do not be discouraged, I have the perfect solution to the dilemma. Sell Magic mouse 2 and 1 together in dbl pack.

    Love!

    I am not sure what the complaints are about on this mouse...works great with my new MacBook and was quick/easy to pair. I love how intuitive it is with the gestures etc - I wish I could sync with my non-Apple laptop and use it for work also! I love the sleek design. The fact that the charger connection is on the bottom of the device doesn't really bother me since it seems to hold its charge really well (and charges in just two hours) - I don't really see this as being an issue - and so awesome you don't need batteries! I was a little hesitant to pay the $79 cost for this, but I am so glad I did! Another satisfied Apple purchase.

    Really great mouse

    I've had some other mice that I've used (bluetooth) and each one has had some major connectivity issues. 70% of the time they'd connect within 5 minutes of waking the computer up, but the other 30, they would take about 30 minutes or so. This one is always instantly connected! I am so thrilled about this as I do video and photo editing quite often and really need the precision of a mouse. I love the gesture support, and quickly got used to using the gestures. For people with a Mac, yes it's a little pricy compared to other options, but this mouse really is worth the price. The battery also has incredible life, and charges very quickly. If it dies, then I just plug it in, get up and get a drink or go for a probably much needed walk, and then when I come back (maybe 5-10 minutes later usually) it has enough juice to last another couple of days if I needed it to. It charges very quickly. I can't imagine using any other mouse from now on with my Mac.

    Great product

    This is a great upgrade. Feedback/sensitivity is improved compared to last gen, works out of the box, and battery life is great. Using with El Capitan.

    Doesn't stay connected

    Terrible mouse at a ridiculous price. It barely holds a bluetooth connection for a minute. One is much better off to spend a fraction of the price on a much more reliable bluetooth mouse.

    Never thought I would rate Apple product so low

    1. USB charging port is on the bottom of the mouse. Not only you can not use a mouse while charging, but it also has to be in a strange position during charging process (on a side or upside down). I don't understand how such design solution got through.
    2. Magic Mouse 2 is not fully supported on Yosemite - scrolling and gestures don't work. Yes, you can update to El Capitan, but it is corporate Mac - I can not upgrade... I can understand if there are hardware limitations, but locking key features in a software... And it is only one version down.... Very disappointed.
    3. Scrolling speed by default is very low and to adjust scrolling you need to dig through the accessibility settings... What's up with that? Should such settings be on a mouse tab?

    I put the second star, just because when it is charged and coupled with El Capitan - it works ok. But not different from Magic Mouse 1....
