- An engineer on social media has modified a Magic Mouse to give it wireless charging, and the results are amazing.
An engineer on social media has finally fixed one of the worst designs ever created by Apple, by adding wireless charging to Apple's Magic Mouse.
The Magic Mouse is notorious because the device's charging port is housed underneath the device, making it impossible to use whilst charging, and making the upturned device very unsightly and un-Apple to look at. (Pictured)
Now, in a video shared to social media, one engineer has taken matters into their own hands and created a wirelessly charging Magic Mouse thanks to a whole lot of DIY.
The video, shared by DuanRui on Twitter, is a therapeutic 90 seconds of wizardry, which ends with a Magic Mouse that can be charged wirelessly. They even added a built-in wireless charging point to their desk thanks to some under-the-table modifications. Check it out!

The report indicates that Apple's new iMacs will look a lot like Apple's Pro Display XDR monitor.
