USB-A for Apple Magic Mouse – Apple, you’ve GOT to be joking!


I have just bought a Magic Mouse 2. I bought my Mac Book Pro in 2016. The instructions in th MM2 say “To Pair you mouse with your Mac, use the Lightning to USB cable that came with your Mouse”.

However, the cable that came with my mouse is a Lightning to USB-A cable, wheras all Mac Books sold since 2016 (or thereabouts) have had USB-C (sold as Thunderbolt) ports.

I believe Apple should supply me with an appropriate cable (Lightning to USB-C) or at the very least an adapter to convert the ancient USB-A cable to USB-C.

I’ve submitted the above to Apple Feedback. But I’m not holding my breath waiting for Apple to send be a suitable cable.

How can Apple be allowed to sell periperals that are incompatible with the products that they are meant to support?

Just another case of Apple not caring about the PC world.
