  • 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.

      Do not drop

      It drop two inches and the glass shattered terribly!!! $129 plus tax down the drain! For your own safety, keep it plugged in.

      cable didn't broke

      I'm an apple fan and lover based on most on their design other than hardware or software although i'm a huge fan of Mac OS and the connectively of apple devices I'm an apple fan and lover based on most on their design other than hardware or software although i'm a huge fan of Mac OS and the connectively of apple devices. But anyways i have never buy anything on the apple store online i'm 100% an eBay user and sometimes amazon but never apple. my point is an a tech consumer and a software developer and i just bough some store at the apple store including the magic trackpad and the send me with it a usb/lighting port cable that was broke. i just pay a lot of money thinking that buying this from apple was gonna be perfect but guess what it wasn't so ill probably stick with my eBay. So the trackpad... getting used to it it had some issues connecting with my mac but after several times it work also i was getting crazy because the cable didn't work...hehehe

      If you don’t like the, you probably don’t know how to use it!

      What a device this magic trackpad 2 is! I’ve read the reviews on this page and I can only wonder: do people know how to use it? If you don’t, the frustration is What a device this magic trackpad 2 is! I’ve read the reviews on this page and I can only wonder: do people know how to use it? If you don’t, the frustration is STILL yours as Apple is an easy to learn tutorial in the settings. I use final cut and pro tools along with other apps (safari, gmail, etc) daily and the magic trackpad 2 makes them all a breeze to navigate inside as well as between them. I definitely recommend this if you’re forward thinking and like me: just plain sick of a mouse. Again: don’t be fooled by bad reviews. Typically those are by people who spent $130 on something new, but refuses to read the instructions.
