Looking for an awkward way to charge your brand new Magic Mouse 2? Why not use an iPhone dock!
Apple unleashed its new Lightning-enabled Magic Mouse earlier this week, featuring a lighter and sturdier form factor, as well as improved “foot design” for a smoother glide.
Despite the fact that it only takes 120 seconds to get a whole day’s worth of charge, a number of users have already criticized Apple for putting the charging port on the underside, with some even calling for the head of whoever designed it.
@tim_cook, whoever designed the way you charge the magic mouse 2 and the apple pencil should be FIRED, immediately.

As Mac and iOS app developer Cabel Sasser points out, however, the design means that new peripheral fits onto the existing iPhone Lightning charger, producing a somewhat precarious-looking configuration that Sasser points out he wouldn’t recommend.
I can only imagine the look on poor Jony Ive’s face when he sees this!
H/T: Thanks, Sarah!
