  • Overview

    Redesigned and rechargeable, Magic Trackpad 2 includes a built-in battery and brings Force Touch to the desktop for the first time. Four force sensors underneath the trackpad surface allow you to click anywhere, and detect subtle differences in the amount of pressure you apply, bringing increased functionality to your fingertips and enabling a deeper connection to your content. Magic Trackpad 2 also features an edge-to-edge glass surface area that is nearly 30 percent larger than the previous trackpad. This design, along with a lower profile, makes scrolling and swiping through your favorite content more productive and comfortable than ever.

    Magic Trackpad 2 pairs automatically with your Mac, so you can get to work right away. And the battery will power your Magic Trackpad 2 for about a month or more before needing a recharge.

      Does everything great except click and drag!

      As long as you never use click and drag this device is pretty cool. Unfortunately, I do quite a bit -- and each time I press to 'click and drag'; the file As long as you never use click and drag this device is pretty cool. Unfortunately, I do quite a bit -- and each time I press to 'click and drag'; the file opens, or previews, or gives me a definition, etc. Click too light, nothing happens. Click too hard, it does everything but pick up what I'm selecting to drag. I have to keep my magic mouse next to my new trackpad just for clicking and dragging. Great concept -- not executed to the "it just works" Apple standard.

      Incredibly frustrating to use

      I have used dozens of pointing devices in the last 30 years and have never had as many problems as with this one. Random clicks happen all the time and half the I have used dozens of pointing devices in the last 30 years and have never had as many problems as with this one. Random clicks happen all the time and half the time instead of a regular click or worse a double click it registers a right click. Scrolling with 2 fingers sometimes causes it to think I am using 3 fingers which it then takes several seconds to recover from. And as for force clicking, previewing is almost never what I want to do. After about 5 minutes of it popping up unexpectedly I disabled it (I find force touch a little frustrating on my iPhone 6s+ too but I got used to it). I hate to sound so negative but the whole reason I use Apple products is for the ease of use factor and this trackpad significantly interferes with my ability to get things done.

      Bummed... really wanted it to work

      Paired with a late model 2013 MBP. The sensitivity of did not match the trackpad on the laptop so when I sped up the scroll, it was ok on this trackpad but the Paired with a late model 2013 MBP. The sensitivity of did not match the trackpad on the laptop so when I sped up the scroll, it was ok on this trackpad but the trackpad on my laptop was blazing fast. Multifinger gestures didn't work (no scrolling, no three / four finger swipe) and the click wasn't nearly as responsive. I'd like to have it work, but after fiddling with it for an hour, I'm returning and reverting back to my normal 2-AA battery trackpad.

      It's okay for general use but poor for professional design applications

Having said that I've never been able to use a standard Apple mouse for design work either. The Trackpad Preferences settings BADLY needs a "Scroll Speed" adjustment setting, as there is none. If you're on a 27" iMac it takes multiple swipes to slowly scroll through a long web page, for example. Currently I'm using both the Trackpad and Expert Mouse for different applications, just takes up more desk space.

      More useful than I thought

I thought I would use the track pad for casual computer use and then use my mouse for games and more intensive computer work. Well, I've found that I rarely use the mouse now (only easier for one or two games) and I use the track pad as my primary form of navigation on my iMac. The only thing that can be difficult, stated in early posts, is the click and drag, but really, I haven't had that hard of a time using it. It has made up for that fault in ease of use in almost every other area. Mechanically, the device seems to be going strong, connects fine, and holds a good charge (Only charged it twice over 3 months with near daily use). I would recommend this.

      Ultimately difficult to use. Prefered the original.

The click just do The Magic Trackpad 2 makes me work too hard to do very basic tasks it's meant to do. When set to use the physical click it is near impossible. The click just doesn't want to happen easily, and then when I try harder to get a click to register I end up double clicking words or file items unintentionally and the Mac OS wants to do something I'm not asking for like give me a dictionary entry or select a whole paragraph. I can't say why it isn't working well, but I suspect the lower profile of Trackpad 2 means the "travel" on the button click is a shorter distance and it doesn't easily take and hold a click. I can get around the issue somewhat by turning on "tap to click" in Preferences. But then situations quickly come up where you need to physically click. For example, you need to click and drag an icon to organize items within the dock, or selecting a group of items on the desktop with click and drag, or moving a document file from one folder to the next in finder. This thing is just a pain and although I want something *like* this, I'm seriously considering returning it.
