    On my 2nd one...

    • Written by James F from Birmingham

    This *replacement mouse is now lagging with screen movement like the 1st one Apple replaced.
    This is on another iMac also... I truly don't get it - white mouse works FINE!
    Guess I'll be calling for a 3rd replacement soon.

    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

    You really had to make it not work while charging?

    Not as good as expected

    • Written by Vucko V from Palm Harbor

    I got two of those and both are not working properly. Every 10 min they just stop working for 5-10 seconds or they move slow.

    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.)

    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.

    Not recommended.

    • Written by Stephen D from Yucca Valley

    It's ok. Not terribly responsive. I don't understand why Apple chose not to include any page scrolling option. Scrolling via mouse movement doesn't work. There's no equivalent center scrolling wheel, but you can swipe through horizontal pages? Who designed this? This mouse should do everything a track pad does, but it does not. On the plus side, it looks nice, but I prefer practical functionality.

    Middle Mouse Button Please!

    • Written by Eric G from Fairview Heights

    I got this Magic Mouse when I purchased my new 21.5 iMac earlier this year. I love my new system but the Magic Mouse 2 is practically useless to me without a middle mouse button! As an artist I rely on software programs which utilize a 3 button mouse. I've tried to find a workaround through YouTube videos and the App Store. Nothing I've tried works.

    I understand there's a lot of negative feedback on the design of the mouse which doesn't allow you to use the mouse while it's being charged. I think it's odd how the cable plugs into the underside of the device but I typically plug it in while I'm away from my iMac. I notice that it charges VERY quickly and a full charge will last me several weeks!

    I just hate the idea of having to purchase another mouse for my iMac in order to fully utilize the software programs that I use the most!

    Hand discomfort during heavy use.

    • Written by Dennis T from Applecross

    I have used the Magic Mouse 2 for 4 years I have played lots of games over time but now I write books much of the day, 8 so far in the last 2 years. When I edit I work the mouse hard. I also do a lot of photo editing. I have used mice from most manufacturers. I love Apple design. That is why I used the mouse for so long. It works well but it is ergonomically not good for me. If I use it in games I get hand cramp. In editing I get thumb cramp. I ignored it and got tendinitis in my thumb. So I got out some of my games mice and realized they were so much more comfortable in long term use. They have Bluetooth and work fine which was my biggest fear and charge while using,yay. This Mouse is fine in short term use, looks lovely, but in longer use I have my doubts. I would like to make recommendation that Apple make more ergonomically designed mice for heavy users and the elderly. I would like to see more attention to function over form. The shape of my relaxed hand does not fit the Apple mouse.

    Expensive and Poor design

    • Written by Eric A from Santa Teresa

    So expensive when compared to other products out there. Then when it needs charging you can't use it, because the charge port is on the bottom. Poor design from a company that is suppose to design great products. Very disappointed.

    Mouse is great but ditch the lightening port and put it on the front!

    • Written by Dustin F from Lakewood

    Seriously, if you would stop leeching money out of your customers I would have given this 5 stars. Instead somehow Apple ditched their "forward thinking" and decided to use old tech in their newest iteration of the wireless mouse device. Lets think about this, they even released a new "space gray" color that matches their newest line of macbooks - awesome! Here's the catch, it ships with a lightening charging cable that still uses the old bulky USB. Where the heck are we supposed to plug this in? Our new macbook? Oh wait, no, we're supposed to buy 3-4 dongles so we can charge our keyboard, mouse, and trackpad at the same time. I'm leaving a two star review because this design isn't well thought out. Lets ditch lightening ports altogether! Please commit to your vision and convert everything to USB-C! I can't stress enough how stupid this is. I also suggest you start shipping these devices with your overpriced USB-C to Lightening cables instead of old bulky USBs. As I'm sure others mentioned, actively charging it renders it useless. Oh and the space gray costs more money AND has better reviews, seriously?! SMH

    Form at the expense of function

    • Written by Giles H from OTTAWA

    Touch sensitivity for left/right clicks seems to work well enough, which is nice. However, the mouse is shallow and uncomfortable to use for long periods—your hand has to arch over it rather than resting on it. Much worse, though, the optical sensor is located at the tip of the mouse rather than near its base or centre. What that means is only hand movements that extend to your fingertips are picked up when tracking motion. That leaves tiny movements of your hand around your wrist invisible to the mouse. The result is a bizarrely inaccurate and jittery mouse when it comes to tracking. So this isn't just discomfort--it's actually a usability issue. I returned it and bought a $15 Dell mouse. Saved almost $100, much more comfortable, and much more accurate. The Mighty Mouse is a great example of form at the expense of function. In its present design (which has been around for a long time) it shouldn't have been allowed out of the gate. (Also: Who cares about wireless? Seriously. If you're genuinely frustrated by the presence of a mouse cord you have issues.)
