Apple Magic Trackpad 2


The Magic Trackpad 2 is larger than its predecessor, and adds a rechargeable internal battery and Force Click, but it's nearly twice the price.

Attractive, minimalist design. Larger active surface area than the previous model. Quick setup. Supports Force Click and multitouch gestures. Internal rechargeable battery. Includes Lightning charging cable.

Expensive. Requires El Capitan and Bluetooth 4.0 to work.

Conclusion On basis of merit alone, the Apple Magic Trackpad 2 is a worthy successor to the first iteration. Force Click may get the headlines and certainly requires some explaining for those who haven't used it before, but the real upgrade here is the...

Apple Magic Trackpad 2 Review and Ratings


The Magic Trackpad 2 is Apple engineering at its finest: an impeccably designed, oversize touch pad that brings Multi-Touch and Force Touch to Mac desktops and older Mac laptops. Our only major quibble? The giant price tag.

Luxurious haptic-feedback click-feel ; Built-in battery ; Compatible with older Macs ; Easy customization of Force Touch and other features

Very pricey for a touch pad

Apple says that a Bluetooth 4.0-equipped Mac running OS X 10.11 “El Capitan” or later is required to use the Magic Trackpad 2. That said, our test-unit Magic Trackpad 2 worked perfectly on an ancient, non-Bluetooth 4.0 MacBook from 2009. So, in...

Apple Magic Trackpad 2 review: Solid performer doesn't feel essential


The Magic Trackpad 2 is shockingly large and blindingly white. It looks kind of a like a futuristic thing you'd find in a high-tech kitchen, like a smart scale or a wireless charging station or a heating pad that keeps your coffee at the perfect...

Huge area for clicking ; Silent clicking option, among other customizations, in System Preferences > Trackpad

Not Cheeto-friendly (Pro tip: Pirate Booty has lighter colored cheese powder)

If you’re buying a new iMac, I would definitely choose the Magic Trackpad 2 over the Magic Mouse 2. But if you’ve got a Mac without a Force Touch trackpad, you might consider waiting until Force Touch becomes more ubiquitous and essential than it is...

Apple Magic Trackpad 2 review: Feel the Force Touch


Force Touch is the new pressure-sensitive tech from Apple that promises to change the way we interact with our Macs by offering shallow and deep "layers" of interaction on the trackpad. A separate trackpad won't suit all users, but if it's how you like...

Bigger surface area, easy to setup, long battery life, comes with Lightning cable in the box for charging

If you aren't using Force Click the extra size isn't hugely noticeable over the previous model

A separate trackpad won't suit all users, but if it's how you like to work then the Magic Trackpad 2 adds plenty of new features above and beyond the original model.

Magic Trackpad 2 review


Apple's updated Magic Trackpad, released alongside the new generation of iMacs, is bigger, whiter and equipped with Force Touch pressure-sensitive technology. Here's our hands-on review of the Magic Trackpad 2

Brings Force Touch to older Macs ; Some Force Touch features are convenient and applications will add features in future

Expensive ; Force Touch not yet ubiquitous enough to be genuinely useful

To dredge up a review cliche, Force Touch is a nice-to-have rather than a must-have at this point - as more and more applications add Force Touch features, it's likely to become ubiquitous, and genuinely useful, but at the moment it's just a pleasant...
