I got fed up with the “magic” disconnections of my Bluetooth keyboard and Ouse from my iMac 2017 every time I boot up. So now I wire the keyboard in and use a $10 Logitech WiFi USB mouse... Tada!!!

Yes it has to be a markerting ploy. calling them Magic.I don,t have anything against the Magic keyboard,iit r is just the Trackpad and Mouse moving about all over the place. I all so have a cheap mouse with Batteries which i have had for years which never goes all over the place like the Apple Trackpad and Mouse.

It's interesting this thread comes up now when in the last two days I've started experiencing input lag on my Magic Trackpad 2, which makes it "go all over the place." :confused:

In my case, it seems to be triggered when I put my iPhone (which has Bluetooth enabled) in a certain place on my desk near an Anker USB hub. But I've been doing that for a long time, and it's only recently that it's started giving me trouble.
