    How does a company so integral to the world of design create such a poorly designed product? By far the most frustrating and uncomfortable piece of tech I have ever used by Apple; whomever designed this mouse must hate anyone with hands! After five minutes of using this mouse, I was ready to throw it through my computer screen. Using this mouse for design work would be like running a marathon in flip-flops; it's possible but no one with any sense would do it. Shame I have to even give it 1 star... Come on Apple, be better.

    Can't use while recharging

    • Written by Hannah T from Washington

    Terrible design. On a previous version of this mouse, you could recharge it via a slot on the top of the mouse, allowing you to plug it into your computer and continue using it while the product recharged. Why would Apple redesign it to have the slot for the charging cable on the underside of the mouse? I'm getting rid of this product and going back to a version that takes replaceable double AA batteries.

    STAY AWAY - mouse will give you carpel tunnel syndrome

    • Written by Ashley A from Chicago

    This is the most uncomfortable mouse on the planet. Some of the features are nice, but its an ergonomic disaster. You are risking injuring your wrist by using this mouse. Do not buy this. ANY Logitech mouse is better than this.

    charging port on the bottom of the mouse?

    • Written by ariel M from Shade

    i can't believe Apple designers couldn't figure out how to position the charging cable for this mouse in such a way that it COULD BE USED WHILE CHARGING! am i supposed to just take a little break in the middle of the work-day when my mouse is out of juice? seriously poor design.

    Has a mind of its own...not Apple quality of old.

    • Written by Bernard C from Highlands

    I had a laser mouse for two years and no problems at all. This Magic Mouse 2 is 6 months old and malfunctions all the time. It will zoom in on a screen when it wants, fail to open up a link when clicked and as for scrolling, it's so jittery, it's like risking a bicycle over train tracks. The lady at Apple was very helpful but nothing we did over the course of 45 minuted made a difference. She said that if I installed Mojave my problems would go away. They did for half an hour and then back to the above issues.

    Magic Mouse 2 DOES NOT WORK on cloth mouse pads

    • Written by Dorothy P. R from Atlanta

    The claim that the magic mouse 2 works on all surfaces is false. My magic mouse 2 works fine with no tracking errors when I use on my wood desktop. As soon as I place it on a standard cloth mousepad (to protect my desktop from wear) the magic mouse 2 stops tracking. It stops completely, you can't get it to move. No other optical mouse I've tried has this problem with the mouse pad. As soon as I put the magic mouse 2 on the desktop it starts working again. I have tried this with multiple cloth mouse pads and the result is always the same. I have not been able to find any good information about what mouse pads are effective for this mouse. Shame on Apple for making bogus claims and not providing correct information about their product.

    MM 2

    • Written by Terry T from Wellesley

    So disappointed in the Magic Mouse which originally came with my new (2016) IMac. It quit working after only two years. New Magic Couse 2 rechargeable has received scathingly negative reviews so will not be buying that one. Now have to use a USB connected mouse.So sad for Apple.

    The worst mouse ever

    Very disappointed. This is my worst mouse, even it's very expensive. So uncomfortably, didn't expect this from an Apple product

    Not what I expected.

    • Written by Jean Raphael S from MALDEN

    I wanted to like this mouse but, unfortunately it is not good at all. It feels very sticky in the hand so, it makes difficult working with gestures. It is also too small and it is not comfortable holding it.

    The worst bluetooth device ever!!!!!

    • Written by Deyu X from Westford

    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!!!!

    Missing low battery alert is a travesty

    • Written by Jessica S from New York

    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

    • Written by Saki S from Douglasville

    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?

    Easily the worst design in any mouse. Ever.

    • Written by Andreas Z from Voorschoten

    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.

    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.

    Serious recharging issues

    • Written by Maxfielfd B from San Francisco

    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.

    Poor Design

    • Written by viswanath I from chicago

    So someone in the technical design said 'customer doesn't need to use the mouse while it is being charged. he could wait' and everyone else in the team nodded their heads? How did this product even pass the use case test?

    This design is beautiful to observe. However, a sculpture is not its purpose. The ergonomic element, which is essential for mice, is absent. There's no consideration for how your fingers interact with the device. The sleek design is too slippery, and you cannot properly grip it. Worst of all, the tiny crevice between the upper shell that presses against the lower body to engage its functions continually pinches the skin on your fingers. Not that the pinch is painful or significant but worse, it's extraordinarily annoying. It also collects the oil off your skin, ewe. For the price, it should be superior to anything else. Apple fails on this one and should replace all of them to compensate for the inconvenience that they cause. Boo, hiss! I am waiting for the delivery of a better design that correlates to the premium charge for this product. Don't buy this mouse!
