Welcome to Episode 18 of Unpacking iOS. In this episode I talk about using a mouse with your iPad, or if you really want to get creative, you can use one on your iPhone … so, let’s start unpacking!
When Apple launched iPadOS and iOS 13 at their Fall iPhone event in 2019, they omitted to mention a feature that a lot of people have been clamoring for – mouse support. The latest software updates have pushed the iPad closer and closer towards a genuine replacement for your laptop, so it only makes sense to offer up the ability to use a mouse with an iPad. However, it may not function in the way you might expect, so in this episode we take a look at how to activate it and customize it to your liking.
