These are the best wired and wireless mouse for Mac

Mice are a handy accessory for your Mac. They’re less cumbersome to use than a trackpad and make it easier to do tasks that require more accuracy than usual. However, as there are a lot of good mice on the market, picking one up for your Mac can be difficult. First, you have to think of what you need from a mouse — do you require any specific features? Do you play a lot of games? Or whether it’s travel-friendly?

Secondly, suppose USB ports are a luxury on your Mac. In that case, connectivity is another area to explore in any mouse. Between wired and wireless mice, a wireless mouse with Bluetooth will be a better option for you. Not only it’ll save you a USB port, but it also won’t clutter up your desk space or get tangled with other peripherals.

XDA VIDEO OF THE DAY

To make your task of finding a mouse easier, we’ve compiled some of the best wired and wireless mice on the market. Also, if you’re in the market for a case for your MacBook Pro, we’ve got some great options in our best MacBook Pro cases guide, and there are excellent USB C hubs for your MacBook Pro too.

Best wired and wireless mice for Mac

    Seamless connectivity

    Being an Apple product, the Magic Mouse works seamlessly with every Mac. It’s however on the high side in terms of the price. The Magic Mouse is also rechargeable but that odd placement of the lightning port may irk some people.

    Lightweight

    Roccat Kone Pro is an excellent wired mouse for pretty much everything from office work to gaming. It is super light, has a comfortable shape, and overall good build quality. You also get low click latency. Unfortunately, the companion software that is used for customizations is only compatible with Windows.

    A great option for most

    The Logitech M720 Triathlon can be paired with up to three machines and you can switch among them by just pressing a button. It can work using both Bluetooth and a USB receiver. Additionally, it has six buttons that are customizable using Logitech software.

    Low-cost and cute

    The Seenda Bluetooth Mouse is an affordable option and supports both Bluetooth and a USB receiver for connectivity. It can work at three DPI levels and offers superb durability. In addition, the mouse comes in 10 color options with LED lighting.

    The budget pick

    If you're a little tight on the budget, this Microsoft Bluetooth mouse is worth considering. It only uses Bluetooth for connectivity, and its design works for both left and right handed users.

    A workhorse

    The Logitech M585 is a slightly toned-down version of the M720 Triathlon. It matches all of the M720’s features, barring the Hyperfast scrolling. It also works with both Bluetooth and a USB receiver.

    8000MHz polling rate

    The Corsair Sabre RGB Pro is a superior wired gaming mouse, but it is also excellent for office work. It is one of the first mice in the market to offer a maximum polling rate of 8000MHz. The polling rate governs how often the mouse tells a computer about its position. The Sabre RGB Pro is also well-built, lightweight, and has a very low click latency.

    Light and compact

    The Corsair Harpoon RGB Wireless mouse is another great gaming mouse that you can use on Macs. It's compact and lightweight, making the mouse perfect for travel. In addition, it offers very low latency and works with both Bluetooth and a USB receiver.

    Features galore

    The Logitech MX Master 3 is one of the most expensive mice in our picks -- and rightly so. It's filled with features like app-specific profiles and macOS gestures support. What’s more, it can even work on glass.

    For gamers

    If you’re going to game on a Mac, you'd better get the SteelSeries Rival 3. This wireless gaming mouse provides ultra-low latency wireless performance. It’s also built for extreme durability. Moreover, it's ambidextrous.

    Travel ready

    If you're looking for something that doesn’t take much space and is ready for your on-the-go life, Logitech Pebble M350 may be perfect for you. It has a minimalist and modern design that's ultra-portable. Moreover, it can connect over both Bluetooth and a USB receiver.

    Small but elegant

    If you are looking for a no-nonsense mouse but with a little more flair than the Microsoft option, the Satechi M1 is for you. It works effortlessly with all Macs, and has an aluminium finish with an ergonomic design.

    Lots of programmable buttons

    The Logitech G502 Hero is another good mouse for macOS users. It looks good and has an excellent build quality. The mouse comes with programmable buttons that you can customize using the G Hub software. However, it’s slightly larger and on the heavier side.

    Budget option

    The Logitech G203 LightSync is a simple wired mouse. If you don’t want to spend too much money and need something that does the basics right, you can’t go wrong with the G203 LightSync. It also looks decent and has a good build quality.

    Ergonomic Design

    If you are looking for an ergonomic mouse, the Logitech MX Vertical is among the best on the market. Its unique design reduces muscular strain and forearm twisting. In addition, you can use it in both wired and wireless forms, thanks to onboard battery and Bluetooth support.

    Scroll wheel with L/R tilt buttons

    Although targeted at gaming enthusiasts, the Razer Basilisk V3 is equally good at office and multimedia work. It is well-made and is comfortable to use for most hand sizes. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use the profile-switching feature on macOS as there is no macOS software to create multiple profiles.

    The premium option

    The Logitech G604 Lightspeed is primarily a gaming mouse and a great one, but if you want a top-of-the-line mouse for office use, it's an excellent option for right-handed users. It's comfortable to hold and offers fantastic performance. However, given its long size, people with small hands may have issues reaching all the buttons easily.

    With adjustable angle

    If you are looking for a great ergonomic mouse for your Mac, Contour Design's Unimouse is worth considering. It's available in both right-hand and left-hand variants and comes with an adjustable angle and thumb support. However, there's no Bluetooth support, but you do get a 2.4GHz wireless USB adapter.

These are some of the best wired and wireless mice for Mac right now. The Logitech M720 Triathlon is an excellent choice for a wireless mouse, whereas the Roccat Kone Pro is a great wired mouse for most of you out there. However, if you’re into gaming, you are probably better off with Corsair Sabre RGB Pro. The Apple Magic Mouse is also good if you want seamless connectivity with your Mac and aren’t worried about spending more.

When it comes to choosing a mouse, it all comes down to your personal preference. Just make sure your choice has all the features you need. While you’re buying a mouse for your Mac, do invest in a decent mouse pad — you won’t regret it.
