What's the best wireless mouse for your Mac? There are plenty of advantages to using a wireless mouse. You don't have to worry about the length of your cord or getting it tangled with other peripherals. There are all different types of mice on the market for every kind of user. Check out our favorites below.
Perfect for most
Also known as the Triathalon Mouse, Logitech's low-cost high-powered wireless mouse is a great mid-range product. It's called the Triathalon Mouse because it has three Bluetooth device connections. You can use it with your iMac Pro at home, your MacBook Pro on the go, and your PC at work. For many of us, this will be the best model for Mac.
Another winner from Logitech, the Logitech MX Master 3S wireless mouse is built for speed and productivity. The electromagnetic magspeed wheel is not only ultra-fast; it's precise (down to the pixel) and quiet. Set up app-specific customizations and work seamlessly on three computers or devices at once. When we reviewed this we were hard-pressed to see how it could improve upon its predecessor, but with an 8000dpi sensor for 4K and 5K monitors, it sure has.
The MX ERGO is very comfortable and allows you to navigate your Mac without having to move your hand or wrist around on a mousepad all day. It is a fantastic mouse for those looking for something with an ergonomic design.
Lefties and righties can use this trackball mouse with aplomb. It's perfect for video editors and the circular scroll wheel makes it easy to scan multiple pages or frames. The ergonomic design helps with wrist pain and the additional padding ensures you're holding your arm at the proper angle.
Apple's Magic Mouse 2 is perfectly designed to work seamlessly with the Mac. As noted in our review, its multitouch surface lets you perform gestures like swiping to move between pages or scroll through websites, double-tapping with one finger to zoom, double-tapping with two fingers to call up Mission Control, and more.
Elite gaming mouse
Logitech's G604 is the best wireless mouse for clicking with the speed and efficiency needed to get through the toughest dungeon, beat the baddest boss, or out-skill the most talented sporting opponent.
SteelSeries makes an impeccable gaming mouse with nearly zero lag, pinpoint accurate crosshair placement, and the lowest lift-off detection around. Its buttons and weight balance are highly customizable for even the pickiest gamer.
If you're looking for a basic mouse with no bells and whistles, and you don't want to pay a lot for it, Seenda makes a reliable, simple mouse with no frills in your choice of fun colors. It also costs less than a pizza.
Best for wrist pain
This vertical mouse has been specifically designed to relieve pain caused by resting your hand incorrectly on a traditional mouse. Its design positions your arm in its natural resting angle to improve comfort and help correct bad computer posture.
For the ultimate customization, check out this ergonomic trackball shaped like a mouse for an easy transition. As we reviewed this, we loved how you can connect the Kensington Pro Fit Ergo Trackball to three computers, change DPI settings for cursor speed control, and pop out the ball for cleaning with a button. Plus, with Kensington's software, you can customize nine buttons just the way you want.
Our editor-in-chief picked up this one for a song years ago and has been using (and loving) it ever since. It comes with both a USB-A and a USB-C receiver, so it can be easily swapped between whatever computers you use. It has three DPI levels (1000/1600/2400 DPI) which allows you to alter the cursor sensitivity and track smoothly over various surfaces.
Down to the pixel
As you'd expect from the name, the Logitech MX Anywhere 3 can be used anywhere on virtually any surface, including on glass. While reviewing, we were impressed by its ability to scroll 1,000 lines at once and stop on a pixel. It automatically goes into hyper-fast mode when needed. Get up to 70 days use on a full charge or three hours use on a one-minute charge.
What's the best wireless mouse for your Mac?
Which mouse will be the best wireless mouse for your Mac, whether a desktop like the Mac Studio or a laptop like the powerful M1 Pro/Max MacBook Pro depends a lot upon personal preference. You can't go wrong with a Logitech mouse, such as the MX720. It's well-rounded with great features at a great price and supports up to three Bluetooth connections at once, letting you quickly switch between multiple devices at the touch of a button.
Apple's own Magic Mouse is genuinely perfect for gesture-based mousing around on the Mac, having been made by Apple to blend a traditional mouse with multitouch gestures. We love that it's designed specifically for Mac and works like a mini trackpad. There are other great options out there, too. Whichever mouse you end up choosing, don't forget to pick up one of the best mouse pads as well.
