  • 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 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.

      A really super trackpad!

Needless to say, I didn't return this one. This is a beautiful trackpad. It feels like an upgrade to my MacBook Pro trackpad. And it worked perfectly directly out of the box. As far as claims of glitchy connections with the laptop, I've dealt with a lot of glitchy wireless mice in the past even to the point that I finally went back to completely hard wired. This one, however, is not glitchy! It is rock solid. From the moment I turned it on, it connected with my MacBook Pro and was super responsive and precise. The only time I had an issue with it dropping connection to the laptop was as it neared the end of the battery charge. It would connect and disconnect over and over again. I plugged it in and charged it, but it kept doing the same thing. So I switched it off and back on and it was as good as new, solid, precise, perfect. A lot of reviewers complained about the click and drag. Let me clarify. This is a "force touch" trackpad. It gives you one functionality with a light touch and a different one with a heavy touch. It can take some getting used to. Click and drag requires a light touch. If you tend to click heavy when you drag, place the finger of one hand lightly on the pad for "click" and use the finger of your other hand for "drag." My guess is that it won't be long until you are clicking and dragging like a pro one-handed. So don't believe all the negative reviews. This is a really super trackpad, and I think you'll love it.

      Better than most of the reviewers would have you believe

      I have the original Magic Trackpad at home and use the Trackpad 2 at the office. Overall, I prefer the original design. I think it sits at a better angle and it I have the original Magic Trackpad at home and use the Trackpad 2 at the office. Overall, I prefer the original design. I think it sits at a better angle and it feels more rugged. But the Trackpad 2 isn't bad. I like that it's rechargeable. Plus, you only have to recharge it maybe once every 6-8 weeks and when you do, it charges super fast. Plus, it pairs really easily and is usable pretty much the instant my Mac is powered on.

      Transformational device

      I purchased the trackpad about an hour ago, and it is amazing device for navigating the content and performing input functions. I did read the reviews about the I purchased the trackpad about an hour ago, and it is amazing device for navigating the content and performing input functions. I did read the reviews about the trackpad before I purchased the device, and was somewhat skeptical...but I am an Apple user, and understand the transformative outlook they have towards user experience. The negative messages on this board, make me feel that folks were expecting the standard user experience from a computer mouse...it is understandable that change is never easy...but Apple makes it possible. Keep an open mind to change, and I can assure you once you begin to give up the old ways, you will begin to fly with the many possibilities of this awesome device.
