    Does not come with a USB-C adapter

    • Written by Deborah F from Chesterbrook

    I recently purchased a MacBook Air and bought the Magic Mouse to go with it. I really wanted to like this mouse, I even shelled out the extra for the Space Gray to match my computer; however, when I opened up my new mouse I discovered that I would need to purchase an adapter to get my brand new Apple products to work together. The MacBook Air has two USB-C ports (no USB ports). The Magic Mouse adapter that comes with the mouse is only compatible with a USB port. In order to pair the mouse to the computer they need to be connected via this adapter (this is a one-time thing, later they connect via Bluetooth) so in order to work, I would need to buy a USB to USB-C adapter! Come on Apple, if you're going to move the market, and your customers to the USB-C adapters sell products that are compatible or provide a free work around.

    Not as good as expected

    • Written by Vucko V from Palm Harbor

    I got two of those and both are not working properly. Every 10 min they just stop working for 5-10 seconds or they move slow.

    At least it looks nice.

    • Written by Fredric G H from Paso Robles

    Aside from the well-attested nuisance of uselessness during charging, the bluetooth connection is very unreliable. I'm now using a less elegant USB mouse. (But the magic mouse still makes a stylish paper-weight.)

    issues with tracking

    • Written by Tero H from Mölndal

    Got Magic Mouse 2 to go with my new 2018 MBP, but after couple of days with it, I decided to order a Logitech mouse.
    The tracking is atrociously bad, even if you turn up the mouse speed to fastest option, it still takes large sweeps to force the cursor across the screen. This makes the mouse unusable.

    Also for latest MBPs - you'll have a direct issue with charging the mouse because it comes with USB-A to Thunderbolt cable and 2018 MBP only has USB-C ports. Prepare to buy a dongle/different cable with it.

    The ergonomics of the mouse are bad due to low profile, it offers no rest to your hand so using it for longer periods is tiresome.
    The touch gestures for scrolling are the only saving grace of the device - it's not enough for me to want to keep using it though.

    Great Mouse but buy white

    • Written by Brian S from thornville

    Seems to be much more stable with my new MBP's finicky bluetooth than my magic mouse 1.0. Port on the bottom is not an issue. I take away one star because it is black not really space gray. Only gray on the bottom that you can't see. Received as a gift, but would definitely not pay an extra $20 for this "black" one.

    Literally the WORST mouse ever made

    • Written by Omar N from Barrington

    I really hate giving bad reviews. It is never my intention to ruin the reputation of a companies product, but in this case, I really have no choice. For your own good, please do not purchase this horrible mouse.

    1. The tracking is absolutely awful. It lags like crazy, so you have to plan your mouse movements in advance. In other words, if you want to move the mouse across the screen, you must drag the mouse across the desk and hope that the arrow eventually lands on your intended target. Most likely it won't on the first try though, so you'll have to repeat this step once or twice more for every intended click. Alternatively, you can just move it really slow.

    2. Tons of friction with the mouse feet. Every time I move this mouse, it feels like I am scrapping a brick along my desk.

    3. Atrocious shape, and very uncomfortable for long periods of use. The fact that there is no dedicated left/right click w/ scroll wheel is also very annoying and slows my workflow down a lot. When I click the right side of the mouse to simulate a right click, the whole mouse will sometimes tip over onto its right side. Not good!

    I find that I my productivity in the office is slowed down immensely when using this mouse. It is something that I absolutely dread using, or even looking at due to the mental anguish it gives me just seeing it on my desk. Instead, I use a Logitech gaming mouse and can actually get work done!

    Do NOT buy!

    Love this Mouse!

    • Written by JASON L P from Elko

    I was visiting an Apple store today to help a friend pick out her new MacBook Pro, and I decided to pick up a new mouse for my MacBook Pro. I must say, I am totally thrilled with this mouse. I have no idea why all the negative reviews on here. This mouse is a wonderful upgrade! Ignore the haters and check it out for yourself! Definitely recommend!

    Terrible!

    • Written by Jake Y from Saint Paul

    The quality is terrible! It is terrible for gaming because 1: The right click is weird and 2: the scroll wheel is a touch gesture so when you try to scroll it goes crazy.

    Not very responsive

    • Written by John M from Fayetteville

    I just purchased the Magic Mouse 2. Not sure want's so magical about it. I think the finger swiping has very poor response. I don't find it very comfortable - doesn't fit the hand well.

    Not recommended.

    • Written by Stephen D from Yucca Valley

    It's ok. Not terribly responsive. I don't understand why Apple chose not to include any page scrolling option. Scrolling via mouse movement doesn't work. There's no equivalent center scrolling wheel, but you can swipe through horizontal pages? Who designed this? This mouse should do everything a track pad does, but it does not. On the plus side, it looks nice, but I prefer practical functionality.

    • Written by John C from San Jose

    everything works exactly as I expected and im happy with my purchase but the tracking is so bad im hoping theres an update or something soon because It works good on my desk table but it doesn't work so well on my mouse pad. thats a problem for me cause I don't wanna rub the mouse on the table since it was 99.99 plus tax and I rather use a mouse pad thanks.

    Cable?

    • Written by Gregory M from Trevor

    Works like a mouse should work. Purchased for use with a 2018 MacBook Pro; since Apple decided to limit ports on the new MacBook to Thunderbolt 3, it would be nice if they would include the same cable with the mouse (T3 to T3) rather than a Thunderbolt 3 to USB (thereby requiring an adapter cable to charge the mouse).

    Middle Mouse Button Please!

    • Written by Eric G from Fairview Heights

    I got this Magic Mouse when I purchased my new 21.5 iMac earlier this year. I love my new system but the Magic Mouse 2 is practically useless to me without a middle mouse button! As an artist I rely on software programs which utilize a 3 button mouse. I've tried to find a workaround through YouTube videos and the App Store. Nothing I've tried works.

    I understand there's a lot of negative feedback on the design of the mouse which doesn't allow you to use the mouse while it's being charged. I think it's odd how the cable plugs into the underside of the device but I typically plug it in while I'm away from my iMac. I notice that it charges VERY quickly and a full charge will last me several weeks!

    I just hate the idea of having to purchase another mouse for my iMac in order to fully utilize the software programs that I use the most!

    Why have a cavity for the laser?

    • Written by Steven C from Milford

    The cavity for the laser made sense when it took AA batteries and the plate could be removed so you could easily clean off the area. Clearly the designers don't have cats. In case you didn't know, they shed fine hairs and love to lay on your desk right next to your arm when you're working. So cat hair inevitably ends up on the mousepad, even when the cats are well-groomed, and once in a while the tiniest hair ever will end up stuck in the laser cavity and break the $100 mouse. You have to flip the thing over on an operating table with a bright surgical light and use tweezers wearing a sterile operating suit to remove it. At this point, with no removable plate for that area, why not just cover the entire laser cavity flush against the bottom of the mouse with a clear plastic so nothing can get in? It's ridiculous that I have to go through this so often. Aside from that flaw that was bad before but far worse now that the plate isn't removable, I have always liked these mice.

    The Magic Mouse Needs a Complete Redesign

    • Written by Adam S from Loveland

    Apple should have redesigned the Magic Mouse from the ground up so that the charge port is not on the bottom of it. You should be able to charge and use the mouse at the same time. Apple was lazy and just kept the same design and threw a lightning port on the bottom instead of redesigning the mouse to have a charge port in a sensible location.

    Still a 5-Star, in spite of -

    • Written by Robert H L from Key Biscayne

    $20 extra for Space Gray.

    USB-A to Lightning cable. Really? What computer do they offer in Space Gray that does not have USB-C? Now, list the Space Gray Laptops that are ONLY USB-C. For the "Space Gray" 20 extra bucks, they could at least give us the correct cable, especially since they just charged me $19 for the cable that should have come with it in the first place.

    Charging port on the bottom - not a problem. Much better than hauling around extra batteries.

    Hope You Like Using Cables With Your New Blutetooth Mouse

    • Written by Ben O from Seattle

    Want to use your new $100 bluetooth mouse with more than one MacBook? You're going to have to find an adapter (their laptops support USB-C, but they send you a USB 3.1 cable) and plug the mouse into your laptop every single time you switch between devices because it's not going to pair unless you do so.

    Far too expensive to perform like a peripheral from 1999.

    I prefer the first Magic Mouse over this one...

    • Written by Kyle D from Huntersville

    I bought this mouse to go with my new Space Grey MacBook Pro. I love the excellent battery life and the gestures that the mouse facilitates. However, I find that is quite awkward to use from an ergonomics standpoint. It seems that the position I find myself holding the mouse in gets quite uncomfortable during prolonged periods of use. Additionally, this thing show fingerprints horribly! Admittedly, I am quite OCD when it comes to things like this, but it really destroys an otherwise beautifully designed product. I don't mind having to plug it in on the bottom, but I would rather just swap the batteries out like I did with my old Magic Mouse.

    Poor Design

    • Written by Laura W from Waynesboro

    While the mouse works fine, the charge port being on the bottom of the mouse is a very poor design. Thus, when charging, rendering the mouse useless until charge is complete.
