    The worst bluetooth device ever!!!!!

    This is the worst Bluetooth device you can even have!

    1. Almost never able to connect after the computer startup, the cheapest wireless mouse does otherwise we call it a defect product, but for Apple, we call it a "special feature", nice!

    2. Try to connect the mouse from Bluetooth device list, it is listed there, but still, it would fail to connect to computer most of the time, the "special feature" goes on, nice!!

    3. Need USB cable to connect to the mouse, then it will connect to computer. Apple does provide the usb cable. Nice, wireless mouse need a wire to connect!!!!

    4. Oh, did I mention, the new Mac book has NO USB port anymore. This is the most beautiful think you can ever see! To connect APPLE WIRELESS MOUSE, you need a USB CABLE + USB PORT ADAPTER, WELL DONE, APPLE!!!!

    Here's why there are so many 1 star reviews

    This is at least a 3 star product, but I'll get to that in a minute. The reason why it has so many 1 star reviews is because unlike other stores, you don't need to purchase the mouse to review it... which means the Apple haters can create apple id's and leave bad reviews without buying anything and what that means is any company or simply just android fanboys can just get on here and hate on Apple for the fun of it and then say, "Oh look how bad it is reviewed." Apple really is just leaving themselves wide open for attack. I have a Magic Mouse 2 and I love it but I didn't buy from Apple.com and here I am leaving a review. So the reason it is at least a 3 star is because at best the only things you can attack it on is that the charging port is at the bottom, so you can't charge and use at the same time. Also, if the mouse would let you know at least 4 hours before it died, then you could recharge at lunch or make it to the end of the day before charging. Some people would rate it lower than a 5 because it doesn't feel amazing in your hand (which can be debatable). The lack of a scroll wheel also bothers others, but big deal when you can just use your finger. The other thing is that on my Mac, when turned to the highest setting the mouse seems to move just a tad slow on the screen. Also, the price point is a bit high, but that's why you hop on ebay and get it cheaper. For me though it's 5 star because it always works good without any lag, it is very smooth and easy to use, the fact that you can use your fingers to swipe or slide is genius and its rechargeable by cable. It has superior range and it also looks classy. Really what more do you want? Good job apple. However I recommend a couple things: get the space gray option going, allow us to have the mouse pointer move a little quicker and only allow people who buy the product to review it, so that people like me don't need to explain all this to everyone. Kudos everyone!!!

    Missing low battery alert is a travesty

    It is ludicrous that this mouse does not trigger a visible low battery alert, but just shuts down. Further, the lighting port is ON THE BOTTOM, so you could not even charge while using it. With all of Apple's self-hype about their care with product design, it is ludicrous to have two major errors on a simple device. This is not acceptable and defies belief, but I need a mouse and this is what they are selling in stores now. (And yes, I am using the latest OS High Sierra so this is not an issue of compatibility but exactly the problem many users have commented on.)

    it's really annoying

    I wish I would have read these reviews before I wasted a good group of cash on this not-magic-at-all mouse (mine is white). I was just very excited about having all apple products when I purchased my MacBook Pro. To use this mouse, I have to do very large arm movements to get it to move anywhere. As soon as I connected it and started using it for the 1st time, I could tell this mouse was going to be hard to use in comparison to a usb plug-in (with a right click button!) mouse I was using on another laptop..I miss that other mouse dearly now. I'd really like to get my money back or be able to get another apple accessory instead of this one. Is that possible?

    The future is here (too bad so many don't know the past)

    I've been a Mac user since the beginning of Apple and I can say this Magic Mouse 2 is a joy to use. No, it might not make your cappacino in the morning and you might have some petty complaints as I see in so many reviews but I don't see too many people going back to their 1998 model mouses. Great job Apple.

    Who was the genius that designed this? They need to be fired

    This has to be the worst design ever. My 11-year-old nephew could have come up with a better design than having the mouse lay on its side in order to charge!!!! I just bought this mouse today and I'm ready to return it. I'm normally an Apple fan but this takes the cake. Where is Apple's QC dept? I can't believe that such a badly designed product actually got into production. Since they only want to hire the elite of tech, how did this get past the trash can? Is Apple sleeping on their skills? Seriously, Apple needs to look to the consumer for feedback before they create another dud like this. Get it together or third-party manufacturers will be getting rich off your huge design mistakes. I only gave it two stars since the shape of the mouse didn't change (thank god)

    Not a good design

    This might be a good design if you have NEVER used another mouse before but stay away if you have, it will takes a long time to get used to it . This is the very first bad design by apple, steve would have fired the whole team

    Easily the worst design in any mouse. Ever.

    I won't rewrite what plenty of people have already expressed in previous 'reviews'. I'll just say that applying this design to not one but even a second generation of a product, apparently without even considering that you've designed a complete dud that is even likely to hurt its unfortunate users in the (shockingly) short term due to its non existent ergonomics is, well it's baffling. To the designer of this torture device, please stop trying to design things. Bring the rest of the team coffee or something. You'll still be contributing to the overall effort and it'll be an instant bump up in your positive impact on the end-product. Thanks.

    My mouse lost connection 3 times while I wrote this.

    The Mandatory 1 star is 100% too much star.

    Great Mouse

    Love its ergonomy (before Magic Mouse 2 I've been using a $3 mouse from a Chinese store, that made what it was supposed to, but not very comfortably, and had to buy a little mousepad with a wrist-bump). My only complain is the location of the Lightning Port. It could be in the same spot the cable of the Mighty Mouse (yes, it would make the mouse taller, but I could live with that), or it could stay in the same place with the introduction of a Magic Mouse with optional Wireless Charging.

    Lacks Gesture and Control

    This mouse is VERY poor for the price.
    The trackpad offers so much more gestural interaction that the mouse feels like an incomplete tool. Half the time the "right click"/"two finger click" doesn't register and you're just clicking through to things unintentionally.

    If you're a designer like me, this can be a real nightmare. It also doesn't have a zoom out function, which is obnoxious while navigating large design files. There's actually no way to even quit an application from the apple task bar using this mouse so you have to either use the trackpad, or get a different mouse... literally. Even though I have the mouse, I can't even use it while I design.

    This thing is a HUGE waste of money, do not recommend especially if you are a designer! Just get yourself a wireless mouse from someone else, the markup here is huge, it doesn't even integrate well into the other mac interfaces. Clearly just more money-pushing, incomplete product launches from Apple. Wait for the next one or get a mouse somewhere else!

    Great mouse, but the charging is bone headed.

    What was Apple thinking to make it totally impossible to use this mouse while it is being charged? The charge port is on the bottom so the mouse cannot be used! The good news is ten minutes of charge will last for hours. One minute will usually get you going.

    Stopped working

    Terrible charging design and one day decided to stop working. Switched to a $10 microsoft mouse and could not be happier.

    No using while charging = FAIL

    I can’t believe this hasn’t been changed yet. I’m typing this on my phone because my freaking mouse is charging and I can’t use my Mac!!! Simply put...I hate this mouse.

    It works but upside down charging is senseless

    PROS
    The mouse works as intended most of the time.

    CONS
    1. I routinely run out of energy on the mouse. Why? Because MacOS fails to warn me.
    2. When recharging, I have to flip it upside down and plug it in. This leaves me mouse-less for about an hour while it charges.
    3. Why an hour? Because there is no battery charge indicator on the mouse and it's disconnected from the laptop.

    CONCLUSION
    Decently engineered hardware but horribly unthought out design. A first year HCI student would know better than to disable usage during a normal lifecycle process on an input device. Not providing a mechanism to inform the consumer of the charge strength exacerbates this issue. This is yet another bad design decision by Apple.

    Serious recharging issues

    The issue that I have with this mouse is that it seems to call for recharges very often (apparently doesn't hold a long charge) - and then I get no warning until it is just about to die. Why not warn someone with something like "there are only 10 hours left of power" so I could then recharge during bed and not interrupt my workflow.

    As others have said, the recharging doesn't allow you to use it while recharging, so I have experienced major interruptions to workflow several times in the few months I've had it. It is not at all a quick recharge.

    Overall I am quite annoyed I paid so much for this mouse but there are major usability problems.

    Sweaty hands? forget it.

    The glass used is not ideal. If your hands are not 100% dry then your fingers stick to the glass in an unpleasant way (rub your fingers around a wine glass and you'll get the idea. I wonder why they couldn't use the same textured silver glass that's used on the track-pads on the macbooks. That texture has the most pleasant feel to it of all trackpads I've felt, and would be perfect for their mouses too.

    So good I bought a second one!

    I agree with others who are incredulous that people rate this at just one star simply because of the recharging port being on the bottom. The mouse, itself, is incredible. The charge lasts me—and I use the mouse over 8 hours each day—at least 45 days; so, SHAME ON ME if I can't remember to plug it in one night every 45 days. SHAME ON THE NAYSAYERS for trashing an incredible tool over this one design flaw—which I admit I would rather see changed, but is certainly NO DEAL-BREAKER for any reasonable person.

    No ergonomics

    This mouse is not ergonomic, the sensor is terrible, I'm not gonna start about charging port location meme. I don't recommend this product to anyone.

    Ignore the reat

    I’m not sure why all of the other reviews are so horrible about this Product. I have Been using this guy for a month now and still haven’t had to charge it. I feel when I do charge it will be a little bit annoying however I’m a smart enough guy to know to charge it during the night when I’m not trying to use it. Other than that this mouse works great and I love the fact that it’s Bluetooth connecting!

    Great for most tasks, depending on what you need.

    Magic Mouse 2 is an improvement over the original (built in rechargeable battery with lightning cable provided and not dealing with a plastic tab which the battery door that wears out). As for not being able to use it when charging, of course it would help to have the charging port in front of either or both sides to use as a wired mouse. I have been able too scroll reading articles while charging by having MM2 on its side next to my MB Air and having the cursor somewhere useful so that it could scroll the article being read. Aside from technical matters, the rarely asked question is does this mouse do what you need it to do or not, and go from there.
