According to a recent report by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, the revamped Magic Mouse, along with the Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad, will be equipped with USB-C ports for charging, replacing the previous Lightning ports.

This announcement will likely coincide with the unveiling of the refreshed 24-inch M3 chip-based iMac. While details on possible changes to the accessories design are scarce, they have maintained a familiar look since their last major update in October 2015. Since then, Apple has made some minor changes, such as introducing braided cables and offering exclusive color options with the 24-inch iMac. Apple also introduced the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID button in 2021.

One notable aspect of the new Magic Mouse model is the switch to a USB-C port. While the Magic Mouse boasts a long battery life (about a month or more), users have long made fun of the Lightning port's location on the bottom of the mouse, making it impossible to use while charging. It is hoped that the USB-C port will provide a more convenient charging experience, though its exact location remains a mystery for now.

This shift to USB-C in Apple's accessories follows the trend set by the iPhone 15 models, which have adopted USB-C ports instead of Lightning. Apple also made a similar move with the latest Siri Remote for the Apple TV, incorporating a USB-C port. Additionally, the company discontinued the MagSafe Battery Pack and MagSafe Duo Charger, both of which featured Lightning ports.

The "Scary Fast" event is scheduled to start at the unusual time of 5 p.m. Pacific/8 p.m. Eastern, so be sure to mark your calendars for what promises to be an exciting glimpse into Apple's latest innovations.
