The Magic Trackpad 2 is a multi-touch and Force Touch trackpad produced by Apple Inc. Announced on October 13, 2015 alongside the Magic Keyboard and the Magic Mouse 2, the Magic Trackpad 2 is the successor to the first Magic Trackpad.

Description

The Magic Trackpad 2 is similar to its predecessor, with the key differences being a larger form factor,[2][3] rechargeable lithium-ion battery[4] and Force Touch. The trackpad also provides haptic feedback via Apple's built-in Taptic Engine that is also used in MacBook trackpads.[5] The Lightning connector is used for charging and pairing.[6]

In 2021, Apple released a new version just called the Magic Trackpad that comes with an updated braided USB-C to Lightning charging cable and has more rounded corners like the updated Magic Keyboard and Magic Keyboard with Touch ID. In March 2022, a black trackpad with a silver underside which was bundled with the newer Tower Mac Pro was updated with the newer design and made available as a standalone purchase, adding a new color option to the already existing white and silver one.
