Force Touch is slowly making its way onto more and more of Apple's products, and now everyone can get a taste of this wizardly technology without having to purchase an iPhone 6s, a MacBook or an Apple Watch. That's because Apple's new Magic Trackpad 2 is actually an entirely redesigned external Force Touch trackpad for Macs.
