    Perfect

    • Written by Jennifer L from Rockford

    Adjusted settings in system preferences and now is perfect. Bought adapter assuming I’ll need it for other tech later so didn’t mind. So happy it’s rechargeable! Yay! The negative reviews must be paid reviewers by the competition, or simply jealous.

    Limited Functionality.

    • Written by Daniel W from La Crosse

    Scrolling around in Adobe programs or Logic Pro is super easy with this mouse. But it shocks me that Apple doesn't sell a mouse with side buttons or dedicated left and right mouse buttons. I also can't believe iOS doesn't support front/back mouse buttons. Apple seriously needs to get with the times.



    Dear mouse designer at Apple,

    I know how to improve the Magic Mouse WITHOUT changing a thing about it. I'd be more than happy to share my idea with you - just shoot me an email.

    Thanks,

    - disappointed Apple customer

    Works well for my use/situation

    • Written by Ed G from Yorktown

    I am a new Mac user, and I am writing this for similar newer users. Magic Mouse 2 does the job well for me. Knowing what I know and my use I would repurchase. One caveat--the better the surface the better the performance. I use mine at home with MacBook Air. I work on an older wooden dining room table with a minutely irregular surface. The mouse works "okay" on that with the occasional hiccup or "jump". To avoid scratching the table top I place the computer on a hard/smooth surface table mat ( vinyl). I just happened to slide the computer over a bit and used the mouse on that surface and Shazam it has worked smoothly ever since. I imagine it is the sensitivity of the technology but unsure. Easy initial connect to bluetooth and for subsequent connections (if you ever disconnect) as well. Took me a while to figure out to go to the bluetooth icon to do that. Battery usage is excellent. There should be no worries recharging when needed if you occasionally check the MM usage meter ( see blue tooth icon for MM). I can right click, left click, pull-down --all without problem. The multi-touch surface works well for "swipes" and "scrolling". It is sensitive but as my personal "touch" improves using it that, again, performance improves. I have not yet encountered a software program that does not respond to MM use.

    Not quite sure what everyone is complaining about

    • Written by Ryan B from Grande Prairie

    Coming from someone who has just recently swapped all of my technology over to Apple, this product is almost perfect. Definitely pricey, but definitely worth it. Paired instantly via bluetooth with my Macbook Pro 13. Only obvious downside everyone can see is the odd placement of the charging port, but with the battery life it contains I don't have any issues with it. Mouse works on almost any surface and the touch gestures still work as flawlessly as they do on the trackpad.

    Magic Mouse 2 - a large, $80 left click button

    • Written by Andrew F from Long Beach

    I bought this mouse thinking SURELY it would be possible to use with Maya, or any other CAD software. Unfortunately, I was mistaken. This mouse is super advanced and yet it CAN'T do the most basic things like middle mouse click or right click. It can only left click, and scroll. That's it. Don't expect anything else. And don't think you can use outside plugins to make it work either because I've tried and it doesn't work either.

    On top of that, you need to flip the mouse on it's back like a dying turtle in order to charge it. This means it can't be used while it's charging, because some GENIUS put the charge port on the bottom (yes, that's a pun).

    I guess NO ONE at Apple is using Maya or CAD programs because I found this to be absolutely unusable for 3D art and design (infuriating). I hope whoever designed this mouse reads this review and facepalms themselves into eternity when they realize their shortsightedness

    What's The issue?

    • Written by Tyler Z from Baltimore

    I've used this mouse since its inception. It works flawlessly, no lagging issues, anyone who reports that must have an old mac or something wrong with something else other than the mouse. Connects quickly, but it does however disconnect unexpectedly every now and again. The charging port is on the underside. At first it did seem annoying, and realistically is a very poor choice of location, but it takes 10 minutes to charge. Go stretch, take a bathroom break, kiss your wife and kids, by the time you get back its charged. Y'all should be responsible adults and charge the thing at night like you do your phone and everything else anyway.

    Had to Return It

    • Written by JEFFREY N from Port Washington

    I recently purchased the MacBook Air with Retina display and I wanted to match my Space Grey laptop with a Space Gray Magic Mouse. It was bad enough that I had to pay a $20 premium to do so but you can't even sync your mouse to the MacBook without buying an adapter since the mouse connection is lightening to USB and the new MacBook is strictly Thunderbolt. So bottom line is that you would need to make an incremental $40 investment versus Apple's already premium priced wireless mouse. This company gets further away from Steve Jobs mantra of quality consumer friendly devices and focuses more and more on its bottom line. Most of us are willing to pay premium price for great products, just not get gouged doing so. Sadly, the apple store folks aren't even aware the issue and this MacBook is 3 months old. In the market for an alternative wireless mouse if anyone has a suggestion.

    Does not come with a USB-C adapter

    • Written by Deborah F from Chesterbrook

    I recently purchased a MacBook Air and bought the Magic Mouse to go with it. I really wanted to like this mouse, I even shelled out the extra for the Space Gray to match my computer; however, when I opened up my new mouse I discovered that I would need to purchase an adapter to get my brand new Apple products to work together. The MacBook Air has two USB-C ports (no USB ports). The Magic Mouse adapter that comes with the mouse is only compatible with a USB port. In order to pair the mouse to the computer they need to be connected via this adapter (this is a one-time thing, later they connect via Bluetooth) so in order to work, I would need to buy a USB to USB-C adapter! Come on Apple, if you're going to move the market, and your customers to the USB-C adapters sell products that are compatible or provide a free work around.

    Does not ship with the right cable for newer MacBook Air

    • Written by Melanie C from Cookstown

    Note if you have purchased a newer MacBook Air, this mouse only ships with a USB-C to USB cable. The USB-C end needs to go into the mouse, and your machine does not have a USB port, only 2 USB-C ports. So I was forced to buy a $25 adapter in order to use the mouse. Just like Apple to evolve the product but not the accessories. Really annoyed about that.

    Very funny problem

    • Written by Mehmet S from Vancouver

    I bought it today and I was very excited. But there is something wrong, the bottom of mouse is not flat, it doesnt stay stable when you leave it on a perfectly flat base. Never seen this kind of problem with any mouse I got. I feel so bad since I gotta go back and change it with another, I am really mad since my 3 hours is wasted.

    My Review on Magic Mouse 2

    • Written by Jason Y

    The magic mouse is very useful and helpful when creating projects and slideshows. Even though when playing Fortnite you can't shoot while focusing but you can still change the command as something else. I really like it because it is wireless and has lots of different features.

    At least it looks nice.

    • Written by Fredric G H from Paso Robles

    Aside from the well-attested nuisance of uselessness during charging, the bluetooth connection is very unreliable. I'm now using a less elegant USB mouse. (But the magic mouse still makes a stylish paper-weight.)

    issues with tracking

    • Written by Tero H from Mölndal

    Got Magic Mouse 2 to go with my new 2018 MBP, but after couple of days with it, I decided to order a Logitech mouse.
    The tracking is atrociously bad, even if you turn up the mouse speed to fastest option, it still takes large sweeps to force the cursor across the screen. This makes the mouse unusable.

    Also for latest MBPs - you'll have a direct issue with charging the mouse because it comes with USB-A to Thunderbolt cable and 2018 MBP only has USB-C ports. Prepare to buy a dongle/different cable with it.

    The ergonomics of the mouse are bad due to low profile, it offers no rest to your hand so using it for longer periods is tiresome.
    The touch gestures for scrolling are the only saving grace of the device - it's not enough for me to want to keep using it though.

    Why no USB-C cable included.

    • Written by Lindsey B from Central Hawke's Bay

    I have through my work just had my MacBook Pro Laptop updated. This latest MacBook Pro only has USB-C/thunderbolt ports. None of the older style USB ports. Yet the latest space grey Magic Mouse only comes with a non-USB-C cable. WHY??? I love the mouse, but this is an enormous omission. At the very least there should be an option to have a USB-C cable instead of the one offered.

    Great Mouse but buy white

    • Written by Brian S from thornville

    Seems to be much more stable with my new MBP's finicky bluetooth than my magic mouse 1.0. Port on the bottom is not an issue. I take away one star because it is black not really space gray. Only gray on the bottom that you can't see. Received as a gift, but would definitely not pay an extra $20 for this "black" one.

    Same issues as silver mouse

    • Written by Derrick N from Epping

    Recently purchased this and the space grey keyboard to go along with a new high spec mac mini. Upgraded all accessories even though I had older versions.

    Love the design. Difficult to beat, but....

    This version exhibits the same issues as the silver mouse. I had lots of bluetooth dropouts while with the older battery driven mouse it was rare. This isn't just a 20 sec dropout. Its minutes and at one point I was fiddling around for 10-15 minutes while trying to fix critical work issues and had half an hour in total.

    Needless to say I'm returning it. Check the silver magic mouse 2 reviews first before buying.

    Literally the WORST mouse ever made

    • Written by Omar N from Barrington

    I really hate giving bad reviews. It is never my intention to ruin the reputation of a companies product, but in this case, I really have no choice. For your own good, please do not purchase this horrible mouse.

    1. The tracking is absolutely awful. It lags like crazy, so you have to plan your mouse movements in advance. In other words, if you want to move the mouse across the screen, you must drag the mouse across the desk and hope that the arrow eventually lands on your intended target. Most likely it won't on the first try though, so you'll have to repeat this step once or twice more for every intended click. Alternatively, you can just move it really slow.

    2. Tons of friction with the mouse feet. Every time I move this mouse, it feels like I am scrapping a brick along my desk.

    3. Atrocious shape, and very uncomfortable for long periods of use. The fact that there is no dedicated left/right click w/ scroll wheel is also very annoying and slows my workflow down a lot. When I click the right side of the mouse to simulate a right click, the whole mouse will sometimes tip over onto its right side. Not good!

    I find that I my productivity in the office is slowed down immensely when using this mouse. It is something that I absolutely dread using, or even looking at due to the mental anguish it gives me just seeing it on my desk. Instead, I use a Logitech gaming mouse and can actually get work done!

    Do NOT buy!
