The best mouse and trackpad for your Mac or MacBook

1. Logitech MX Master 3 – Best Mouse for Mac

Most traditional two-button mice will work with Macs without the need for additional software, but more advanced mice with extra buttons and controls require an app that allows you to program those extra buttons to make them work the way you want them to.

Logitech therefore tops this roundup of the best mice for Mac, simply because it’s one of the few manufacturers that offers a proper Mac version of its Options app for its mice (and keyboards too).

Mind you, the MX range of mice is also very well designed, with at least three versions of the current MX Master 3 available now. All three versions have the same basic design – which is unfortunately only for right-handed users – so make sure you’ve chosen the right model before hitting the buy button.

The mouse has a smooth curved surface that fits very well in the palm of the hand, as well as a thumb rest for added comfort. It has the usual left/right buttons and a scroll wheel, but the scroll wheel operates in two different modes: a fast mode for zooming through long documents and web pages, and a slow mode that provides more precise and tactile feedback.

There’s also a second wheel on the side, which lets you scroll horizontally — which is great for photo editing and graphic work — and two more buttons that can be programmed using the Options app. Battery life is also good, at about two months—twice as long as Apple’s Magic Mouse or Trackpad.

The original version (the one we are looking at here) was launched in 2019 and is simply called MX Master 3. It costs £119.99 and is still the model we’d recommend for most users, as it includes both Bluetooth and a small wireless USB transmitter that offers greater security and reliability than Bluetooth.

However, Logitech has added two other models, including the MX Master 3 for Mac, which costs the same but only has Bluetooth connectivity and a more Mac-esque space gray color scheme. And more recently Logitech launched the MX Master 3 for Business, which costs around £130 but includes a special ‘Bolt’ USB transmitter which provides super robust security features for business users. However, prices vary greatly online, so it’s worth looking around before buying.
