  • Overview

    Redesigned and rechargeable, Magic Trackpad 2 includes a built-in battery and brings Force Touch to the desktop for the first time. Four force sensors underneath the trackpad surface allow you to click anywhere, and detect subtle differences in the amount of pressure you apply, bringing increased functionality to your fingertips and enabling a deeper connection to your content. Magic Trackpad 2 also features an edge-to-edge glass surface area that is nearly 30 per cent larger than the previous trackpad. This design, along with a lower profile, makes scrolling and swiping through your favourite content more productive and comfortable than ever.

    Magic Trackpad 2 pairs automatically with your Mac, so you can get to work straight away. And the battery will power your Magic Trackpad 2 for about a month or more before needing a recharge.

      Great Track Pad

      This is a much better track pad than previous version.

Wonderful ease of movement around the screen, instant response to movement and gestures and a much easier right click. The main improvement is the design which has made the trackpad stable and as a consequence easier to use. Even my youngest child noticed how much better Magic Trackpad 2 is and has stopped wanting to use a mouse. One more thing the connectivity with a lightening cable is just a fantastic tool to start up.

      Fantastic Device! - Stars * * * * * *

      Been using this Magic Trackpad 2 with my MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro for a week now, approximately 10-12 hours per day, and it certainly is a 'major' improvement c Been using this Magic Trackpad 2 with my MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro for a week now, approximately 10-12 hours per day, and it certainly is a 'major' improvement compared to the Trackpad 1 in terms of performance and usability. The price tag for this product may seem expensive to some users, but, after experiencing the following points, it is undoubtedly worth every penny! - Solid build quality - Lovely feel - The full surface haptic feedback is responsive and beautifully refined - a MASSIVE bonus for ease of use! - Larger size makes it so much easier to use than the one on the MacBook - Consistently maintains its 'pin-point' accuracy over the pointer - Pointer movements are always smooth and lag free, pretty impressive for a bluetooth connection! - Touch surface is consistently accurate and responsive - Responds perfectly to all finger gesture controls However, the Magic Trackpad 2 does NOT perform as well on a Windows PC but, then again, being an 'Apple' Trackpad, I assume this device is engineered to be used predominantly with Apple Macs instead of Windows PCs; this is no issue for me because I only use Apple Macs at work and at home anyway, hence, still SIX STARS! I was just curious to discover if this Magic Trackpad 2 would function and perform just as impressively on my friend's Windows PC and Windows laptop, unfortunately it does not. The pointer movements is sometimes jerky and intermittently stops responding, the trackpad also intermittently loses bluetooth connection with Windows etc - avoid using this device on Windows machines! Verdict, as in the title, highly recommended for those who favours a larger trackpad device for use with their Macs.

      A bit disappointing

      I love the bigger area and the fact you can recharge the built-in battery using a USB/Lightening cable. Unfortunately in my case when I use it the wireless mode I love the bigger area and the fact you can recharge the built-in battery using a USB/Lightening cable. Unfortunately in my case when I use it the wireless mode the trackpad seems to occasionally loose connection (so I can see the Disconnected/Connected) icon on my iMac screen, and - which is much more annoying - the trackpad seems to go into a sleep mode so when I read a longer article in the browser or a piece of code in Xcode and want to scroll I need to 'shake' my fingers for a while to get it going. This feels as if my fingers were wet. I cleaned the trackpad, cleaned my fingers the issue is there, but when you keep the trackpad connected via the cable the issue goes away. So I do use it, but it is constantly connected. I bought the trackpad with Late 2015 iMac so I would it expect them to work together well.

      Track over mice anyday!

So much easier, so much prettier, so much more comfortable, a So much better than any mouse on offer. I cannot believe I lived with my iMac without this!? So much easier, so much prettier, so much more comfortable, and so much more productive. Fantastic device that has set the bar in tools other one's hands and fingers and the humble keyboard. My Apple mouse is sadly, but happily retired...

      Don't touch this product. Overated and suboptimal in performance

      I bought the Magic Trackpad a few days ago. Nothing Magical about it. If left unatended for more than a few minutes it reverts to not functioning. I have to use I bought the Magic Trackpad a few days ago. Nothing Magical about it. If left unatended for more than a few minutes it reverts to not functioning. I have to use my Wacom tablet to resolve functionality. Its expensive and given I've only had it for a couple of day, I fear for the future. Please don't be tempted. Its unreliable. Thanks Apple for the waste of a lot of money!
