The Magic Mouse 2 (Apple Magic Mouse 2), is a wireless computer mouse developed and released by Apple Inc. It features a multi-touch acrylic surface for scrolling. The mouse detects the difference between gestures on the surface.


Announced on October 13, 2015, it is similar to its predecessor as a Bluetooth-enabled mouse with the key difference being that it is powered not by AA batteries, but by a rechargeable internal battery.[1] The mouse is compatible with Apple Macintosh desktop and laptop computers running OS X El Capitan versions 10.11 and higher and iPad tablets running iPadOS 13.4 or higher.

The mouse features a lithium-ion rechargeable battery and Lightning connector for charging and pairing.[2] Unlike other similar models, the Magic Mouse 2 has its charging connector on the bottom, and thus cannot be used during recharging.[3] The mouse uses an ST Microelectronics STM32F103VB 72 MHz 32-bit RISC ARM Cortex-M3 processor and includes the Broadcom BCM20733 Enhanced Data Rate Bluetooth 3.0.

The mouse comes in three color variants: Silver, Space Gray and Silver-and-Black.

Other Apple complementary products[edit]

The Magic Mouse 2 was released alongside of the Magic Keyboard and the Magic Trackpad 2 in October 2015 to help complete Apple's renewable initiative. Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2 each have a fully rechargeable and recyclable lithium‑ion battery instead of alkaline batteries.[4]
