Apple Mouse deals can be hard to come across, as it's not the cheapest accessory around to begin with, and Apple products do well to retain their value. But despite Apple rarely dropping their own prices, there are various retailers that frequently discount the wireless mouse if you're wanting to pick it up at a cheaper price. 

Generally, the Magic Mouse retails at around $79/£79 from Apple themselves. That's a good thing to keep in mind when looking at third party retailers, as anything above that will be a mark up to the normal price. Considering this is just one of multiple accessories most people will want for their set up with things like a keyboard, it's not the cheapest mouse on the market. As mentioned prior however, you can find some good discounts from other retailers where the mouse has gone as low as $60/£60. There's not a lot of active deals on the market right now, but our live round up below will automatically update when these discounts pop up.

The Apple Magic Mouse is compatible with not only the MacBook and Mac, but it's even able to link up to your iPad. It offers excellent integration with MacOS systems and with the sleek design, it's a great accessory for any Apple lover. If you're used to using a trackpad, the top of the mouse also doubles as a gesture pad so it's an easy transition if you're going between the two. The wireless design makes it compact and easy to use in your workspace, be you at a desk or out in public. The mouse is charged using a USB-C cable, and a single charge can last you over a month so forget about having to buy batteries.

Apple's own mouse offering is the wireless, rechargeable Magic Mouse, now on its second iteration. It integrates perfectly with MacOS and the Multi-Touch surface allows you to perform simple gestures like swiping between web pages and scrolling through documents. It glides smoothly across a desk without needing a mat and the battery can last as long as a month on a single charge. It comes with a USB-C to Lightning Cable for pairing and charging by connecting to your Mac. As of March, the Magic Mouse is also now available with a black multitouch surface.

A full charge will last you several weeks, so no need to worry about frequently running out of power when using it. Not only can you connect it to your Mac or MacBook, the Apple Magic Mouse is also compatible with the iPad.

Can you use an Apple mouse with an iPad?

Yes, you can use the Apple Magic Mouse with an iPad that's running iPadOS 13.4 or newer, which includes all iPad Pros and the iPad 5th generation or later. You'll need to pair the devices using the Bluetooth menu. Turn on your mouse, place it in pairing mode. Go to Bluetooth in the Settings app on your iPad and tap the name of the mouse. Click 'Pair' in the pop up box that appears.

How do I charge the Apple Magic Mouse?

The Apple Magic Mouse comes supplied with a USB-C to Lightning Cable for both pairing and charging. The Magic Mouse is not battery powered, so no need to worry about changing them when they run out. Simply plug your mouse into your MacBook or Mac and let it charge up. A full charge takes about 2 hours, but will last you several weeks once finished. It is important to remember that because the port where you plug it in is on the bottom of the mouse, you unfortunately cannot use the device whilst charging.
