iPadOS 13.4 Trackpad Support! Works Like Magic

by birtanpublished on February 13, 2021

hey what's up guys Sam here I hope you're doing well today I'm back with a first look for you of trackpad support in iPad OS 13.4 it is out-of-this-world cool if you're looking forward to this feature does seriously up the channel if you drop a like down below of course hit subscribe because there is a lot to dive into this is going to change the way you use your iPad and I think it's for the better so I've spent some time with this feature I've really tried it out and I have to tell ya I think trackpad is going to be the move on the iPad well it does also support a mouse so full cursor

Support is also available for USB or bluetooth mice for me the trackpad gestures are what make this transition worth it but I also want to be clear here Apple is not switching the iPad to a desktop like PC takeover platform they're simply adding that as an option and it's very clear here because just as much as I feel incentivized to click with my mouse or my trackpad or type with a real keyboard there's still just as much of a reason for me to use my fingers to interact with my iPad it's a very fine line that I haven't seen many companies get right but Apple has killed

It here just recently Apple announced a brand new iPad pro with an external keyboard that also includes a trackpad it is an astonishing move for a company that was very slow to adapt the iPad to changing times but that's clear that that's not the case anymore if you've ever used a normal computer then you're gonna feel right at home using a cursor an iPad OS but Apple did something special here they didn't just copy and paste what's been on the Mac forever they made it a bit different to the point where there's some direction it feels like this is optimized for iPad OS

Not simply just another feature there's a real sense of direction here with iPad OS is cursors report that I love because it feels like you're almost using your finger on the touch screen even though you're using it on a trackpad or a mouse there's a real sense of where to go and what to click and it can show you that by making things a little bit bigger there are these really soothing animations all over the operating system now that you only get when you use a mouse or a trackpad you can see you can almost get these 3d parallax style effects which you can turn off if you're

Not a huge fan of them but I like it because it adds a sense of depth something that you don't get when you're not physically touching the screen that still is here with trackpad support you can use it to 3d touch on app icons you can go up to top-left corner of the screen and head over to Notification Center you can even tap and drag on the home bar at the very bottom to close out of apps or go into multitasking but when you use a trackpad there are some unique advantages that you don't get with any other Mouse you can pinch to zoom or you can swipe with

Three fingers and go to the app switcher or you can just swipe up in general with three fingers to close out of apps you can use right-click by like tapping with two fingers on your trackpad you can move the cursor down at the bottom to get quick access to the dock of course though there's also some other configurable options in settings so just go to settings accessibility and there's a brand new section titled pointer control with a new icon in the iOS 13.4 g-m so first under appearance increase contrast is just going to allow you to see the cursor more easily sometimes it

Is a bit easy to lose it and then there's a cool feature that sort of makes it feel probably the most I oh I see that's called automatically hide pointer by default it disappears every two seconds so unlike a computer where that's your only input this is what I mean when I say they still encourage you to touch the screen physically you don't only have to use it but if you want to turn off this feature you can or you can actually adjust the number of seconds to I think pretty much whatever you want although to is the default below that there's an option to change the color of

Your cursors so white blue red green yellow orange and even adjust the size of the stroke which is pretty cool below that a coarse option to adjust the pointer size if it's too small for you it actually is kind of small by default so I did turn mine up a little bit just personally here's an option for the animations if you want it to animate and adapt to elements on your screen I would recommend leaving that on because that's what makes it feel the most special and unique to me and then trackpad inertia this is really cool if you like slide your finger around and then let go the

Cursor will keep going so it's like that motion you know it keeps up with you it's not like a mouse where it just stops dead in its tracks when you stop moving it it keeps moving it's a really nice touch and then below that your scrolling speed of course vital to adjust how you like to scroll around this is mainly if you have a mouse cuz on the trackpad you essentially control your own speed Apple has been calling the iPad a computer for years and I mean it is it is technically a computer you can do your email and use Safari and you know any other fun apps that you find on

The App Store but for me I could never do real work on it just because it didn't feel like I could I mean there was introductions of support and I was 13 and I bet OS 13 but it just never felt like the right option it feel like an option but it didn't feel native or even fully or properly supported until now I want to hear your thoughts about this down below what do you think of trackpad support it is a killer feature and I didn't realize how good it was gonna be until I sat down and actually tried it it's I mean it's incredible I don't know how else to say

If you want to get your hands on this right now it's out for developers but on or after March 24th it's coming out to the public for everybody you just have to update to iPad OS 13.4 via iTunes or on your computer or in settings and then you'll have it so that's all for now I hope you enjoyed this video if you learned some new drop a like and of course hit subscribe for more I've been Sam and I'll catch all of you in my next video
