Magic Mouse 2 (re-chargeable with thunderbolt cable) is only capable with 10.11 (El Capitan), as stated on the packaging.

Is there any word on the street (or from Apple) that there will be a software/hardware update to allow the Magic Mouse 2 to work with 10.10 (Yosemite)?

Ahem . . . Rocky is a squirrel, not a mouse.

P.S. Magic Mouse 2 (re-chargeable with thunderbolt cable) is only compatible with 10.11 (El Capitan), as stated on the packaging.

(@#$%& auto correct!)

Not to be snarky, but there is already a release that does that. It is available from the App Store under the name El Capitan. Best of all is a free upgrade.

Apple is highly unlikely to make any new updates of Yosemite unless they are security related. El Capitan is already a mid-life product (OS X 10.11.2 is already at beta 4) and it is safe to say development of OS X 10.12 has already begun.

Perhaps I wasn't too clear.

I am aware that Magic Mouse 2 works with El Capitan. My question is whether or not there is an app which can make MM2 work with Yosemite.

I have searched Google and all that I find are folks who raise this question, but have no answer. There are many who like the idea of the rechargeable feature of MM2, but wish to stick with Yosemite . . . at least for now.


P.S. If MM2 will only work with 10.11, it does make me wonder if the current model will not work with 10.12 when it is released . . . so that with each OSX upgrade another "latest mouse" will have to be purchased? Pretty sneaky if that is the direction Apple is going.
