Apple to cut the cord on the Mighty Mouse

Apple Computer has developed a wireless version of its Mighty Mouse, according to a U.S. regulatory filing.

Apple Computer has developed a wireless version of its Mighty Mouse, according to a U.S. regulatory filing.

The new version of the mouse uses Bluetooth to maintain a link with a computer and so Apple is required to gain regulatory approval from the Federal Communications Commission before it can sell the device in the U.S. The FCC publishes applications for approval and it's from this information that details of the mouse, which has the codename "M6," were disclosed.

The wireless Mighty Mouse looks much the same as the current wired version with the obvious exception of the cord. The mouse is powered by two AA-batteries and users will be able to check the current battery level through the computer's system preferences menu.

No information about when the mouse will be announced or put on sale was included in the filing. Apple typically uses major conferences to announce new products and the next such event is its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco from August 7 to 11.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
