Some Retailers Claim Apple Plans to Discontinue the Magic Mouse

Posted by at 4:11 pm on August 4, 2011

Apple is discontinuing the Magic Mouse, throwing its weight behind the Magic Trackpad instead, a retail source claims. In detail the person alleges that Apple Stores are not receiving new Magic Mouse inventory, and that Apple is in fact phasing the peripheral out of its product lines.

While the claim has not been confirmed, Apple has been working toward making gestures a central part of the Mac OS, rather than an extra. In Lion, for instance, users can swipe to switch between programs running in fullscreen mode. The OS as a whole borrows concepts from Apple’s touch-based iOS, as evidenced by features like Launchpad and iPad-style native applications.
