Apple mouse keeps disconnecting? Here are the possible reasons and solutions
There are different reasons why your mouse keeps disconnecting. Therefore, the troubleshooting may take a while. Let’s take a close look at the most common causes of this annoying and frustrating issue.
1. Batteries vs. Apple batteries
Some users suggest that the ordinary AA batteries can come in slightly different sizes, which can lead to the batteries move around in your mouse. This, in turn, can lead to a short loss of contact between the battery and plates. Hopefully, this is exactly the reason why your wireless mouse keeps losing connection. Here’s what you can do about it.
The first option is to buy Apple batteries, which would cost you a fortune in comparison to the second option. Or you could simply take a piece of paper or aluminum foil, fold it and place between the batteries. The goal is to minimize the movement of the batteries inside the mouse and prevent any disconnections.

2. Corrupted preferences
According to Apple support, another common cause of the disconnecting mouse may be hidden in the wrong Bluetooth preferences. Such issue also occurs with keyboards. Don’t worry, though, you can surely do something about it, if that’s the case.
First, open the Finder window and use “Go to Folder” option. Simply copy and paste the following line: /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist and click Go. Now move the found file to the Trash. You can now restart your Mac and resync the mouse or keyboard again.
