    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....

    Amazing mouse

    I bought it and it became brilliant for me. I am using it with me MacBook. And i must say that it is very comfortable, I am using it at home or in places with table. So I say that it is brilliant.

    Questionable design decision

    I never review products, but the position of the charging port on this mouse makes no sense. What is going to happen, is it's going to die and then I'm going to need to dig out my old mouse to use while I charge this one. Just moving the port and enabling the mouse to charge and be used at the same time would make this a great product. Honestly I would prefer the rechargeable batteries to this. The day to day use of this mouse is just fine, no complaints. This design decision however, concerns me. I feel like Apple is slipping. They used to go the next step with design, and now it seems they are falling just short on a number of things.

    Good BUT

    It's a great mouse design. I was a little appalled however Apple but the plug perpendicular and on the bottom making the mouse impossible to use while charging?! Why? Functions quite well otherwise. Magic Mouse 3 which hopefully follows soon should also have the fingerprint reader from the latest iPhones. It would be a great improvement for the Mac line of devices.

    Amazing and very light

    This mouse is awesome. I am very impressed with how much battery life this mouse has. I can tell the difference between my old magic mouse and the new magic mouse 2.Though there is one thing I dont like about the mouse and it's that whenever I charge it, I can't tell if the mouse is fully charged or not. When I plug it into my Mac, I can see the battery life but I'm not always on my mac so if there was a light that flashed that says if it's fully charger or not on it, it would be more helpful. Otherwise the mouse is awesome!

    WHY WHY WHY WHY

    The lightning port is placed at a horrible position. I want to be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time. That's really impossible with the magic mouse 2. And I also don't want to use batteries.

    Apple Magic Mouse 2 is Great!

    I bought the Apple Magic Mouse 2 a few weeks ago for my iMac. Previously just used a track pad, but decided I needed a mouse for more delicate photo editing chores. It is everything a great piece of equipment should be and it works very well. I was concerned about the negative reviews on the poor design of the charging system. The folks who wrote these reviews need to get a reality check about their abilities to evaluate good design. Simply put, there is no issue with the charging system that any normal person could find fault with. Yes, you can't use the mouse while charging it, but who cares. Are there really people out there who are using their mouse 24 hours per day? I have had the mouse in the on position for the better than two weeks that I've used it, and it is still at 90% charge. This is a great product that I would highly recommend.

    Stupid AND great

    This mouse is brilliant but designed by an idiot (or team of idiots). The feel of the mouse, the functionality, the build quality are all class-leading... but who in the world thought that sticking the charging port on the base of the mouse was a good idea?! And not allowing the mouse to be used whilst being charged? Seriously?! WHY? What a stupid thing to do Apple. What does someone do when they're working and their mouse runs out? Am I expected to buy two of these things??? Aargh.

    Here's a solution, Apple... what if the mouse could become a wired mouse whilst charging? Stick the port in the front-end of the mouse and have it work whilst charging so I don't have to use my laptops trackpad for intricate design work.

    An AMAZING Mouse!!

    I absolutely love the Magic Mouse 2!! Being new to Apple products and getting used to all the gestures, the Magic Mouse 2 is an excellent addition. I'm able to swipe between windows, navigate emails and do all other tasks with such ease and efficiency!! I love this Magic Mouse. Like anything else Apple, the design is so perfect, so clean and so elegant!! I would highly recommend the Magic Mouse 2 to anyone!!

    Poor connectivity

    The mouse still has the problems that the previous version had i.e randomly disconnecting and reconnecting which can be very inconvenient and frustrating. This happened on the first day I owned my new iMac. I am having to use my old USB mouse - this should not happen with a brand NEW computer :(

    Charging and Using this Mouse Proves to be Problematic

    An average user would assume that charging while in use would be capable with this mouse. Not only does the industrial design itself prevent this, the actual software within the mouse prevents itself from being useful while charging.

    TL;DR
    The design is not useful, and the software has very painful UX realizations. I do not recommend.

    great idea! not!!!

    Charge port on bottom. C'mon! Just fire the people who thought that would impress anyone. If charging was a ounce in a while kind of thing maybe, but this is all the time and irritating. The "B" team must have been in charge of this one.

    Great Mouse!

    I got this mouse for my birthday and it has been amazing!

    It worked straight from the box, I just opened it and connected the mouse for the first time and after that the mouse has worked perfectly from then. When reading the reviews I saw that biggest complaint was that the charging port was on the bottom of the mouse. I don't see why it is such a big deal when the mouse doesn't have to be charged that often, it doesn't take that long and you shouldn't be using it while it charges anyway.

    Overall, I believe this mouse is amazing and deserves the five stars. The complaints made seem very thin to me.

    Absolute waste of money

    Buying apple mac and then the mouse 2 - were the biggest mistakes of my life. Comparing a regular mouse to apple mouse - this is 10 times less smooth. The scroll isn't working already, and other users on the forum seem to have the same issue.

    I swear I wouldn't have as bad if I just lost $129 AUD from my pocket.

    Love it! Excellent mouse.

    I absolutely love the elegance of this mouse. It is very easy to use and super comfortable. People reviewing are saying the edges are sharp and cut your fingers... are they intentionally trying to do that? Scrolling is like butter. As for the charge port being on the bottom, I don't believe it presents a huge issue being that the mouse needs to be charged for a short period of time every few weeks if not months.

    Not recommended

    This mouse is so below my expectation. With 65 pounds you would expect it to perform excellently and especially given it's from Apple. The precision is terrible, which I sense could be partly due to its heavy weight. Another pain is the scrolling effect, nothing to be compared with what you feel like at the track pad. The scrolling speed is too unpredictable. These two facts highly influences its effectiveness. Using this mouse is not saving me any time! I wish they can allow more adjustments about the speed and precision. I'd rather go back to my razor.
