    Love it

    • Written by James S from Westerly

    The Magic Mouse 2 is the perfect complement to Apple's trackpads, which are still the best in the industry. As someone who actually uses this mouse for 8 hours a day every day, I'd like to address the two main complaints that I often see about it: (a) it can be uncomfortable to hold, and (b) you can't use it while it's charging.

    Regarding (a), yes, the mouse does have a very low profile and relatively flat surface. I think a lot of people think it's uncomfortable because they try to grip it like a traditional mouse, which is usually much taller and rounder. Instead, if you just rest your hand on it much like you would with a trackpad, it's perfectly comfortable.

    Regarding (b), the fact that you can't use the mouse and charge it at the same time is really not that big of a deal in practice. First of all, the battery life is excellent; mine lasts more than a month on a single charge. Second of all, macOS will notify you when the battery gets low with plenty of warning, so if you just charge it whenever it's convenient (at the end of the day, overnight, etc.), you won't have to worry about it. Finally, even if the mouse dies on you in the middle of the day, plugging it in for literally just a few minutes will provide enough additional battery life (multiple hours) to make it till the end of the day, at which point you can then charge it fully.

    annoying to the point of distraction

    • Written by Bri K from Windham

    There is so much that is good on a Mac. But when the mouse fails for no fixable reason... the experience tests one's loyalty to the Mac.

    Very attractive paperweight...

    • Written by Fredric G H from Paso Robles

    and sometimes it actually works. The brilliant design engineers mandated that if you have this mouse, you WILL need a USB-mouse to back it up, because the bluetooth is infamously unreliable and you can't use this one while it's connected. Another Apple design blunder.

    WORST MOUSE EVE. DON'T BUY IT!!!

    • Written by Karthik K from Foster city

    This has been the worst mouse I have ever used. This mouse is too sensitive to clicks and touches and takes random fake input. This is nowhere close to the trackpad. If you are buying this mouse not to miss on the gesture feature of the trackpad, then but the ducking trackpad not this mouse. I am very very very frustrated!!!! Waste of Money

    Absolutely Terrible - Do Not buy!

    • Written by Susan B from Cairns

    I bought the Magic Mouse 2 to replace my old and well-used Magic Mouse 1. The MM2 is SHOCKING. No precision, scraping on the desk, having to hit it hard to get any type of reaction. The only thing it does is scroll. I have set and re-set the mouse settings. I cannot believe how bad it is. I am coming close to fishing out my old battered one. CAN I HAVE A REPLACEMENT AND CAN I GET A NEW MM1 as I no longer trust this expensive piece of rubbish. I will never buy another Apple mouse!

    Astonishingly Bad

    • Written by Nathaniel R from Wellesley Hills

    Connects slightly more often than it fails to connect.... so I guess odds of it being usable on a given day are better than flipping a coin? Unless you need to charge it. Since the charger requires a dongle, ALSO fails to connect, and plugs in on the bottom of the mouse. Basically it's a pet rock painted in apple colors

    Best Purchase in Years

    • Written by Steven K from Virginia Beach

    I bought the Magic Mouse 2 because I was tired of replacing batteries in my old original Magic Mouse. The fact that the charge cord plugs into the bottom of the mouse is odd because it renders the mouse unusable while it is charging. But it charges very quickly and the charge lasts at least a month. The click feels positive and better than the old mouse and right clicking works great. I don't really get the negative reviews of this product because it works so well. The charge port location is again odd but in my opinion, a minor inconvenience.

    BAD connection issue with MacBook Pro (2018)

    My Mouse has had connection issues with my MacBook Pro ever since I bought them. Why doesn't Apple fix this Bluetooth issue? Frustrating!!

    magic mouse is hard to use

    • Written by Anne P from Oak RIDGE

    At first, I was delighted, but now, the dern thing is hard to click. I'm not looking to buy another one. What's happened to the old mouse? I still have one for my old computer. It works fine.

    Cool concept, but not a good mouse

    • Written by Daniel B from Waukesha

    This mouse looks nice, but it is an ergonomic nightmare. The mouse is so thin that it hurts my wrist. I just can't get used to it.

    Horrible design

    • Written by Josephine Z from Jeffersonton

    I have purchased two Apple mice, hoping one would be better than the first. NOT!!! This design is NOT ergonomic, is very uncomfortable to the hand and not at all user friendly. Why can't Apple come up with a mouse design that has an arch/dome shape to it, why are they making them all flat now? So bad, and so expensive!!! Hey Apple, hands are not meant to be flat all the time!!!

    Horrible product!! 0 Stars...

    • Written by Heather D from Gilbert

    This is the worst mouse I have ever used in my entire life. You have zero control over it, it constantly loses connectivity, it's completely inefficient and entirely disruptive when you need to spend 80 hrs per week working on it. They should replace this for every single customer that paid THOUSANDS of dollars on their machines.

    What even is this.

    • Written by Andrew C from Swords

    Awful design. Unlike the Apple wireless keyboards, you can't use the mouse at all once the battery is depleted. This is due to the charger port being on the BOTTOM of the device.

    What.

    Not user friendly at all

    • Written by Silky J from New Delhi

    I have a pain in my right hand by using the mouse. The top part of the mouse (where it should detect to scroll up or down) has no sensor. I always have to move my hands down to scroll. All other mouses let you keep your hand steady without having to move your hand up or down. I would suggest you to not waste any money on it. And I love apple products. I have all of its products from its Air Pods to the latest MacBook Pro.

    Good News/ Bad News

    • Written by Eugene C from Windham

    I have been using the mouse for approximately 2 years now. I am satisfied with many of the features of the mouse. I like the ease of right and left clicking, scrolling and the fact that it is wireless. I have not had any connectivity issues such as dropping the connection during use. I do agree with many of the reviews that say being unable to use the mouse while recharging is a poor design, I would like to see Apple correct this design flaw in the next mouse. I have also found the mouse can be overly sensitive when trying to right click, specifically when using Photos and trying to Get Info for a given photo. The mouse moves very easily when performing this action and it does not open the information unless the mouse is still when clicked.

    Terrible design

    • Written by Brad N from Yucca Valley

    As others have said, the fact that you can't charge this and work at the same time is one of the worst designs I've ever seen. It's not only that though. It always loses connectivity when I wake my iMac from sleep and there seems to be no solution for this. I just don't let my computer sleep anymore. The right-click location is too close to the left-click, so I often end up right clicking by mistake. This thing needs to be completely redesigned.

    rechargable mouse.

    • Written by Angelina L from Roselle park

    Smartest Design ever: either buy 2 (LOL) , or make sure you charge once a month (like its rent.); no battery changing... (going to the store to spend money on batteries- SO TOTALLY INCONVENIENT!!) , just a 2 hour plug in (so that the battery doesn't get a chance to be drained AS it's charging) once a month. FREAKING GENIUS.

    I don't love the price. but I get it.

    I do love the product. so I totally got it
    .....(for me and my kid).

    I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS

    • Written by Taylor N from Fruit land

    I liked the way it functioned for using final cut pro, but it disconnected from the computer after about a few months of use, and I can't get it connected again. I HAVE WORK TO DO. I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS. I HATE THIS MOUSE.

    Poorly Engineered and Frustrating

    • Written by Stephen R from San Antonio

    I bought this wireless mouse for our Mac Mini. I can't believe this is an Apple product and it was actually designed by an engineer. One, there is now low charge alert. When it dies it dies. Usually right in the middle of a project. Two, you would think you could plug in your lightning cable and march on, but no. The lightning cable plugs into the bottom of the mouse making it unusable, not the front edge like traditional mice. This product is not worth half the price. Major impact to productivity.

    Best Mouse Ever!

    • Written by Eli C from Chevy Chase

    I am a big fan of Apple products and services. I got a Magic Mouse 2 for Christmas and I have used it ever since. Mose people complain about the Magic Mouse 2 because you can't use it while it's charging. I have never run into problems with the battery dying over the the almost 6 months that I've had it. The Magic Mouse 2 is perfect for MacBook users that have a broken trackpad or just want a mouse without sacrificing some of the features of Apple trackpads like horizontal scrolling. I would recommend the Magic Mouse 2 to any Mac user looking for a mouse.
