Whether you’re using a MacBook or a Mac, there are many accessories you can add to your setup to make your life easier, from laptop stands to another monitor and even an external hard drive. You can find countless accessories nowadays, but the most important one is probably a good wireless mouse.
If you work from your Mac all day, using a mouse will boost your productivity and help your workflow. And if you use a MacBook, you know using its trackpad all day every day can hurt your wrists.
The good news is that Bluetooth mice are a dime a dozen, and there are some solid options out there that will fit your needs and your budget.
Whether you go for Apple’s own mouse or choose something a little different, there are many options for you to try.
Here are the best mice you can use with your Mac or MacBook.
Let’s start with the obvious choice, Apple’s very own Magic Mouse 2. It’s tiny, it’s pretty, and it just works.
There isn’t much to say about the Magic Mouse 2 that you don’t know. This mouse works perfectly with your Mac, and it’ll connect seamlessly as soon as you take it out of the box.
Its sleek design is great to look at, albeit it might be hard to work with it over long periods of time. Plus, you’ve probably already seen some jokes about it, but it’s true, the charging port is located at the bottom of the mouse. Meaning, you can’t use it while charging.
Still, this is a great option if you want something you know will just work with your Mac without any issues or complicated installation processes.
Do you like Logitech products? I hope you do because you’ll see them a few more times. But, unlike any other mouse on the list, this one is a bit different.
You know this isn’t a conventional mouse right off the bat, but that’s a good thing. This Logitech MX Vertical mouse was designed this way to help your hand stay in a more natural position and avoid any muscular strain.
What’s even crazier than its design is this mouse’s battery life. According to Logitech, this mouse has a 4-month battery life after a full charge. But, if you’re in a hurry, you only need to charge it for 1 minute, and you’ll get 3 hours of use. Of course, that’ll depend on the situation, but 3 hours for 1 minute of charge is pretty amazing.
If you want to try an ergonomic mouse like Logitech’s, but you don’t want to spend $100 for it, you can always try this cheaper Ergonomic Bluetooth mouse.
This mouse will provide the same comfort and usability level at just a fraction of the price. You can use it with your MacBook or your iPad without any connection issues, and you can even plug it into both devices at once.
If you work too much from your computer, and you’re starting to feel some muscle pain on your wrists, this mouse is a great budget option to help with that.
If you don’t want to spend that much on a mouse at first, you can always start with this affordable wireless mouse.
If you think this mouse is a bit too similar to Apple’s Magic Mouse, then you’re absolutely right. But the similarities end there. This wireless mouse is simple, but it’ll get the job done. You can connect it to your Mac in just a few minutes and start using it as a normal Magic Mouse.
Granted, it won’t have the same build quality, but you’ll still be able to get the work done. Plus, this mouse’s charging port is on the front, so you can charge it and use it at the same time. Take that, Apple!
If you’re looking for a cheap option for you, or maybe to give to your kids, this is a great mouse to try.
Another great option from Logitech is the Logitech MX Anywhere 3 compact mouse.
As you can probably guess from the name, this mouse is smaller than the average, but don’t let that fool you. The MX Anywhere 3 is just as powerful as any other mouse in the market. This little mouse is packed with a long-lasting battery that will last for up to 70 days.
Despite its compact size, this mouse has three buttons you can fully customize to your workflow or change depending on which app you have open.
If you need something small to take with you without that much bulk without compromising in performance, this is a great mouse to get.
Who says your next mouse has to be a conventional one. There’s another option you can try, and it’s the Apple Magic Trackpad 2.
Apple’s Trackpad will work as effortlessly as any Magic Mouse you try. You basically just have to put it close to your Mac and start working. The reason why you might want the trackpad instead of a conventional mouse is because of the gestures.
You’ll be able to use two or more fingers to zoom in or out, scroll and go back and forth between web pages, or quickly go to your app library. You can use many gestures with this trackpad, which makes it a powerful mouse replacement or an additional tool for your workspace.
Yes, it’s another Logitech mouse, but there’s a reason behind this. You already know Logitech creates some premium devices, and this is no exception.
The Logitech MX Master 3 mouse is the perfect example. This mouse is widely regarded as one of the best mice for PCs and Macs alike.
Its design is weird, especially when compared to Apple products, but there’s a reason behind it. The design lets you rest your hand more comfortably, and it’ll also let you use your thumb for an extra scroll wheel and buttons to maximize your productivity.
There are a ton of features you can customize for your Mac. You can also create and customize different profiles for specific apps. If you need to switch between editing a video and writing on the web, the Logitech MX 3 will change its buttons configuration to do what you need them to.
