As usual, Apple revealed new goodies across its entire product spectrum last night, from the headline-grabbing Mac Studio to a new green hue for the iPhone 13. Perhaps the least notable of the lot was the new colour options for the Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse 2 – but the latter has managed to rile up the internet.

As any Magic Mouse user will tell you, the accessory's charging process is, er, less than ideal. In possibly Apple's most mind-boggling design decision ever, it placed the lightning port on the bottom of the mouse, rendering it utterly unusable while being charged. Yesterday Apple announced a new black colour designed to sit alongside the Mac Studio and Studio Display – but that port is still in exactly the same place.
