Can it be paired with multiple computers?

I haven't found the answer to this exact question. Can I pair it with my MacBook AND my iMac? How would I switch between them, assuming both are on?

  • I'm pairing one between a Mac Mini and a MacBook with no issues. When one goes to sleep and the other wakes up, it switches. Occasionally, I have to manually connect through Bluetooth.

  • Best Answer:

    No, unfortunately you would need to reset and pair with each computer when you wanted to switch.

  • Yes the trackpad can be paired with two computers.

    With both machines on, and running:
    1. Turn Bluetooth on for Machine 1 and off for Machine 2
    2. On Machine 1, open bluetooth preferences and set up the trackpad
    3. On Machine 1, turn off bluetooth
    4. Turn off trackpad
    5. Turn bluetooth on for Machine 2
    6. Open bluetooth preferences on Machine 2
    7. Long hold the trackpad button until it blinks and shows up in the preferences list
    8. Set up trackpad on Machine 2.
    9. To switch, you have to turn bluetooth on or off for the computer you want and then just select the trackpad from the Bluetooth icon.
    10. If this is too much of a hassle, you could always dual screen by using "Target mode" on one of your Macs
