Apple's Magic Mouse and us have history. We've written several times about how the device's charging 'solution' isn't much of a solution at all – it's an absolute nightmare. Once the accessory runs out of battery, the users has to turn it around to charge it via the port on the bottom, rendering it useless. But that could finally be about to change. Maybe.

With the iPhone 15, Apple (at the behest of EU regulations) replaced Lightning with USB-C. The change has also hit certain accessories including AirPods Pro, and a new report from seasoned Apple leaker Mark Gurman suggests a similar update will soon come to the Magic Mouse. So if ever there was a time for Apple to fix one of its most controversial design decisions, this is it.
