    Love the touch function!

    • Written by Kiotta M from Bloomington

    While this mouse doesn't deserve a 5 star rating, it definitely deserves more than people are currently reviewing it. I switched from a logitech mouse (not sure which model), and I am thrilled that I can use gestures with this one. I would use my trackpad all the time if I could, but I find that not having my wrist supported like I do with my mouse pad leads to pain/issues. Being able to have the mouse and use the gestures is the best of both worlds. Also, it works really well with my mousepad. My downsides are obviously the charging function and the ergonomics, but everything else makes up for me.

    Harder to click than previous version

    • Written by Yvonne B from Simi Valley

    First I want to say I'm really glad Apple made a rechargeable mouse. I have hand paralysis and changing the batteries was difficult for me. And since I use rechargeable batteries I'd have to recharge the batteries as well. Now I can plug it in to charge. I understand people's complaints about the charge port being on the bottom but for me it's not a big deal because it's still far better than the old system. I figured Apple was just doing a simple upgrade by using the same basic design as before. Perhaps they'll move the port some day but I'm fine with it. You only need to charge it every few weeks. That being said it does not click as easily as the previous version of the mouse. As a result my hand gets tired more quickly.

    So much better than before

    • Written by BARRY A F from COSTA MESA

    I'd been using the battery driven MM and it was always a problem, in that the aluminum battery cover was always getting loose. Batteries themselves no big deal, I just always kept a charged up rechargeable ready to replace, the battery cover was a major annoyance. This new mouse just doesn't have that issue. It works just the same, there's nothing different in their function, but it relieves the ridiculous battery cover problem. They feel pretty much ergonomically equal, one doesn't stand out in my mind. If I plug the mouse in, it charges very quickly, just pop it in at the end of the day. The battery seems to last a very long time. I just think its such a better mouse then Magic Mouse 1. Not really understanding people's beef's with it. Plus, I still have my first mouse ready to go if I leave MM2 at work or something, or want to charge the battery. To me its a no brainer as to which is the better mouse.

    NO problems at All

    • Written by Patrick G from St Chritophe du Ligneron

    When I read all the reviews 2 weeks ago, I thought long and hard about buying. But, my old mouse (the previous version) was after 3 years constant use of up to 7 hours a day, falling apart. So I decided to bite the bullet. It arrived fully charged (97%) and has been used every day for the last week for up to 4-5 hours a day.I have yet to have to charge it and is at 87% charge now a week later. I am usually forgetting to turn it off when I am not using it, so I would say that is a good product.

    Not the most ergonomic mouse, but it fits my mac's style!

    • Written by WH O from Kedichem

    Summary:
    -Battery needs to be charged once a year, maybe twice for extreme users.
    -Ergonomics aren't great, design and looks make up for that
    -NO way to change the acceleration (remove..) or customise gestures (added value there Apple!)

    Full Story:
    BATTERY AND CHARGING:
    The battery port on the bottom for people who havent actually used it: "Worst design ever" "1 star" "what happened to Apple?"
    - For me? "Oh, it's still on 84% after 3 months of leaving it on and using it as i come and go"

    This thing just doesn't use battery, ever. One of the claims, which I completely believe after using it, is that in 2 minutes (!) charging time you can get 9 hours of use out of it. 9 HOURS.

    Apart from that, I've owned way more comfortable mice, gaming mice, with better buttons, weight, ergonomics, tracking, etc.. But those aren't as thin as my MBP 2017 nor as sleek designed.

    What I'm really missing is a way to customise mouse acceleration and gestures, mostly REMOVE mouse acceleration, having used non accelerated mice for my entire life, and really loving it too, makes using this mouse not as an added value to my production cycle as it could have been. Also it would greatly add extra value if certain self made gestures (like drawing a circle on your mouse's surface) would be able to be bound to (custom) actions.

    Great mouse,with only one complaint

    • Written by sam S from Wallis

    This mouse works well and easy to clean.
    (other than not being able to use it while it is charging,)
    It would help if the charging port was on the front of the mouse instead of the bottom but it charges fast and reliable.
    Its a great simple mouse that does everything you need once configured to your personal needs.
    and it works on my 2016 iMac as well as my 2008 iMac.

    System Requirements
    Bluetooth-enabled Mac computer with OS X v10.11 or later.

    Would be five stars...

    • Written by Andrew D from La Jolla

    ...except that you cannot plug in while using.

    As other elements of this mouse are truly wonderful. It has long battery life (weeks of heavy use), very functional, good looking. I just wish I could continue to use it when plugged into USB to charge. The magic keyboard does.

    Oh, come on people!

    • Written by Jeffrey C from ANAHEIM

    This mouse is nearly identical to the original "Magic Mouse". The rechargeable part is a plus! I love it! I've had it for a week, use it a couple of hours each day, and it's still at 100%. All you need to do is look in the System Preferences under "Mouse" and it will tell you the charge level. Mine, after over 14 hours of use, is still at 100%.

    So what you have to lay it on it's side to charge it. Do it when you go to bed! What's the big deal?

    Get over it! 1 star! Really!

    Generally, great; but the charging port should be changed

    • Written by Jeffrey G from Trabuco Canyon

    The Magic Mouse 2 is generally great, and just as functional as the original, although lighter. But you have to wonder what the Apple designers were thinking when they put the charging port on the bottom of the mouse, making it unavailable when charging. It seems obvious that the charging port should have been located at the back of the mouse, i.e., the end where the Apple logo is located, and the firmware programmed to allow use while charging. Also, it should have come with a Mac computer software update to incorporate a battery monitor display (there is one available for a small fee in the App Store). Of course, it is a simple matter to let the mouse charge overnight when you are not using it once it runs down, but maximum functionality would be achieved by making these changes.

    Everyone chill out... including you apple

    • Written by Josh N from Sioux Falls

    Ok this mouse is pretty much perfect.... for the right tasks. If you are doing every day stuff like word processing, web browsing, very basic editing software, it's fantastic. Even intensive video editing in adobe Premiere is pretty great with the mouse. I prefer it to a track pad and the tracking on top of the mouse itself is flawless.

    But golly gee Apple, $80? If you want people to use your stuff make it reachable. We already fork it up for the computer, maybe we could lower the price a wee bit? Just a thought.

    I don't understand the intensely harsh reviews on this or the 2.5 average stars. If you can afford it, go for it. Else there is cheaper stuff on Amazon.

    Only one problem

    • Written by Brian R from Cincinnati

    I bought the Magic Mouse 2 about a week ago and I can honestly say all the issues I see people are having amaze me. My hands are very large and I have NEVER cramped up while using the mouse for a long period of time. Its a great product that does exactly what it says it will and it does it well. The only problem and the reason I took a star away is I do believe the charging port would be best suited in the rear instead of the bottom so that it could be still used while charging.....other than that its great.

    I like this mouse

    • Written by Margaret S from Greenville

    I have been on 1 charge for months. Today gave warning was 38%; SO, I plugged in my old Microsoft mouse & went about my business while MM2 was charging. Seemed no time to get it to 100%. I was tired of replacing batteries (however rechargeable Sanyo of which I have plenty). I suppose the fact that I kept my old wired mouse is a good thing. Heck, get a cheap wireless backup if the "no can use while charging" is a problem.

    Great response and feels natural

    • Written by Quynh Q from Sunnyvale

    I have used the mouse for awhile and the mouse has a great natural feel in your palm. The mouse also has fast responsiveness. What is very convenience is the ability to scroll by swiping your fingers.

    Design flawed, but practical use unaffected

    • Written by Blake A from Alto

    If you're reading this review, I will assume that you are as I was: concerned about the inability to use the Magic Mouse 2 while charging it. The fact that the mouse isn't usable while it's charging, frankly, is stupid. While I understand Apple's commitment to the aesthetic look of its products, this is an obvious lapse in judgement.

    Annoying as this is, however, in practicality, it really does not affect the performance of the mouse (in my opinion). I work from home, and use my mouse almost constantly for eight hours a day. The battery life of the mouse, however, is very long, and I've never once encountered a situation where I needed to charge it to get through the workday. Once every couple of months, I simply leave the mouse on, and plug it in overnight. Moreover, you can get a quick charge on the mouse (to 85%) in five minutes. Thus, while I find this an annoying oversight, it hasn't impacted the functionality of the device. (I am writing 1.5 months after purchase).

    Great product, not perfect though

    • Written by Jon P from Murray

    To those complaining about lack of comparability.... RRALLY!?!? It clearly states what it's comparable with. Apple brings new technologies into the mix all the time, and just like always stops focusing on the past. Why does that surprise you? As a mac user, you should know this. Read before you buy, or ask questions and stop assuming you know it all. It's as simple as that.

    Now, I have to agree with the charging port on the bottom of the mouse; annoying to say the least. Battery life is great, so it's not a huge problem. (Just charge it at night guys). I do think this is a major design flaw and you lost a star because of it. Easy enough to work around, but not everyone likes to be wireless. Just say to yourselves "would Steve approve of this?" Pretty easy concept there.

    Anyway, I'm coming from an older USB mouse (probably 9-10 years old) and I'm loving it! Works perfect on my '13 MacBook and equally well on either my '09 iMac and my bran new (super inexpensive MacMini). The added swipe features don't really appeal to me in most situations, but are nice to have none the less.

    My advice; read about this or any product you are considering. It takes a couple minutes. If you don't meet those requirements, simply ask what will happen if you use this, or other product in what you do have. Problem solved. Older mouse models are available out there; just not from Apple generally. (Chevy doesn't sell parts for '57 chevies any longer either) it doesn't mean it's a bad product; just outdated for a company focused on the future. If you're expecting 100% perfection up to your own standards, as opposed to something that works for everyone's standards, or better yet, the standards that they specify, maybe look inward before casting blame.

    Mahalo!

    One Downside

    • Written by Alain D from Florence

    My old magic mouse was not working right with my new MacPro so a new one was bought for me as a present. I love the idea of a lighting port for charging it (less batteries need to be bought) but the location of the port was the only one flaw/downside. It probably should have been placed on the side of the mouse instead of the bottom of it so that it can be used while charging if needed too. I love all Apple products, never have a single issue with any of them. If you are wanting a good quality product, this is it.

    Like this mouse but...

    • Written by E H from Cocoa

    This mouse works well as advertised but I wish Apple would bring back the friendly green power light of the original Magic Mouse. I am visually impaired and that light was a much clearer indicator to me that the mouse was powered on. I hope someone from Apple sees this review and contacts me !
