The Apple Mouse IIc (Apple Mouse) is a pointing device that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 1984 to 1988 as part of the Apple Mouse series. The Mouse has been introduced on April 24, 1984.
The Mouse IIc was similar to the Macintosh mouse, though it was in a creamy beige color that coordinated with the Apple IIc bright off-white case and had a slightly modified design which was sleeker than the Macintosh’s blockier shape.
It also was uniformly the same color, eliminating the Mac & Lisa’s contrasting taupe accents on the mouse button and cable. Unlike the Macintosh, the IIc Mouse shared a dual-purpose port with gaming devices like joysticks.
In order for the IIc to know what was plugged into it, its mouse had to send the appropriate signal. Despite these differences, it carried exactly the same model number as the Macintosh version.
This mouse has been discontinued on September 1, 1988.
Today Apple Mouse IIc is 38 years old!
